This beautiful and idyllic watermill conversion is situated in Kells just outside Ballymena. It is in a very central position with a large number of popular tourist attractions no more than an hour's drive away. Belfast within easy reach via a 30-40 minute drive on the M2 motorway.
Accommodation was spotless and there was loads of space for our group of 8 adults to enjoy. They all were very impressed with this accommodation and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
We have just returned from a wonderful week staying at the Watermill. We were a group of 8, staying as 4 couples. We each had our own spacious room with queen/king size beds. The house was spotlessly clean. We didn't like the taxidermy, no doubt because we are townies!, but we loved our rural idyll. Views from the lounge over the river were fantastic, but we spent most of our time relaxing in the kitchen, sitting round the farmhouse table. An afternoon on the balcony over the river was just perfect.
Our host Alex was fabulous. Friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here. Kells is well situated, 20 or so minutes from Belfast and 30 -40 minutes to the Causeway. We will be back!
Kellswater Mill is an historic converted flax mill. It has oodles of character and charm. It is set in an idyllic quiet location a few miles from Ballymena, with facilities in the nearby village of Kells. If you like sharp, contemporary chic then this isn't for you, but we loved it. It was amazingly comfortable for seven of us, and would have managed a couple more with ease. The owner could not have been more friendly, helpful or welcoming. Without a doubt we'll be back at some point for a longer stay, if only to have time to sit and look out for the kingfishers and otters that frequent the river in front of the mill. Thank you Alex.
Seeing is believing - stayed with family over a weekend while spectating at sports event in Antrim - from arrival to departure principal and recurring topic of conversation was how splendid and welcoming the house was and how helpful and obliging owner Alex was.
Excellent weekend Family get-together. We booked this house for the long weekend (Saturday to Monday) and it was fantastic. The river and working mill wheel made it a very unique setting. It is a beautiful location - very tranquil! We couldn't believe how we were only 30 minutes from Belfast - such a difference! The house itself is brilliant, very spacious and warm (on a particularly cold weekend). We were provided with plenty of fuel for the stove fire and everyone enjoyed the house. We have a 6 month old baby and a high chair, travel cot, sterilising kit were all provided as standard.
We would recommend this house very highly!
