At the base of the Antrim Mountains and forty miles from the centre of Belfast, lies Ballymena. The town has grown from its early development around the linen industry and today the main employers of Ballymena are the retail outlets which make it such a popular shopping town. If you travel along the B62 from Ballymena you will find this restored 18th century farmhouse. If you have time you should also try to visit Slemish Mountain, Portglenone Forest and the People's Park.
