Within only a few months from opening Sperrin Fun & Heritage Farm is proving to be a roaring success story.
Planning permission was achieved by C. McILvar in November 2012 for conversion and renovation of 3 disused farm buildings and yard for use as a Fun Farm Activity Centre to be run in conjunction with applicant’s active farm holding. The applicant applied for a farm diversification grant and was successful in being awarded substantial funding towards the construction works. The fun farm and activity centre was opened to the public in May 2014 and has proved a huge hit since with people travelling from across the North to check out the newest Derry Fun Farm attraction.
On Halloween night Carol from C.McILvar Ltd decided to check out the much anticipated Halloween Extravaganza at Sperrin Fun Farm and she is still shaking!!! The centre is amazing and Carol could not believe the transformation from an old disused farm yard to a fantastic activity centre and heritage farm for kids. A great asset to the local tourist industry which is growing from strength to strength and providing job opportunities for local people within an isolated rural area located between the villages of Feeny and Claudy, Co. Derry. A must see attraction!
