We stayed in the ground floor apartment for two weeks in August. Two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and a combined kitchen and sitting room, with double doors opening out onto a nice private courtyard, with a nature walk around a field. To get to the apartment you drive into a working farm yard - this is a working farm with the B&B and apartments in addition. However contrary to another reviewer on here, we found it really quiet even though it was a busy time of the year for the farm. Out the front of the apartment in the attractive courtyard it is very tranquil and green, with lots of birds and butterflies, nice to sit out in if the weather is good. We found the apartment very easy to use - it was designed for disabled people, so all on one level, lots of space in bathrooms etc. It is hard to find any downsides, maybe not to do with the flat itself but this part of the world is quite humid so expect fairly humid conditions. Because the flat is designed for disabled people, the worktops are quite low - but remember you get also many benefits because it is designed for disabled people such as the space in the bathrooms. Apart from that hard to find any other faults, maybe a better drying rack for the dishes and also note a quirk that in the two showers cold is marked hot and hot is marked cold! The Kane family seem to be making a real effort to make the farm more eco-friendly, which is great to see, heating with willow wood, windmill for electricity etc. Good to see. I enjoyed an afternoons fishing over in the Roe, a couple of fields away. Go to the freshwater section that is tidal, when the tide has just turned and fish with worms( get the worms and Roe Anglers day license( £20 - bit steep!) at Mitchels in the central car park limavady) - I got three nice sea trout. Lots to do in the area - Roe valley country park, Benone beach, or head over to Greencastle on the ferry in the summer and explore Donegal. Good places to eat in Limavady include the Limetree, good places to drink are Owen's Bar( cosy little rooms but can be crowded at weekends) or Alexander Arms which does sometimes have live music, The Corner Bar is the most lively spot in town. Its a short taxi ride into town. Anyway the apartment really was very nice, quiet yet handy for Limavady and great beaches in area and also great views near by up to the crags of Binevenagh mountain.
