We spent half-term break in Roe Lodge - found it to have plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 kids. Accommodation very clean and well laid out - this is an upstairs Loft but very private and everything you need to self-cater. Owner was very helpful - provided board games for kids, maps of local walks - and even brand new Welles for me as I'd forgotten mine.

Location is superb to explore local walks - we enjoyed Banagher old church and Banagher dam (quite a steep incline) and in particular walks at Roe Valley. Also well suited for 3 or 4 trips in Derry city. We parked for free just beside Ebrington barracks and then walked across Peace bridge. We timed it well for city of culture events, Halloween fireworks, Turner prize 2013 - but these aside there's lots to do in Derry.

Special mentioned Fitzroys in Derry (city side) - we ate there twice - Mons and Tues are 50% off - rest of week 30%. For food at Drumcovitt I'd booked a Tesco delivery and this worked really well. Overall, we had a great time - the accommodation was very comfy and we felt fairly priced - would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: The 2 cottages with log burning stoves weren't available when we booked - I'd really wanted one of them. But actually we felt Roe Lodge was the most private accommodation and would stay there again.

Just back from a stay in Foyle Cottage & had an absolutely fab time! Cottage was perfect for us and had everything we needed & more. Gardens were great & couldn't get our son out of the sandpit! Dogs & cat were so friendly & came running to great us. Place even had a games room. Plenty to do if you don't fancy driving but if you want to stray a little further you'll need a car. Loads of places nearby....Roe Valley Country Park & 5 mins drive away there's the beautiful Banagher Glen & of course you're right in the middle of the Sperrins! Hope to be back soon.

We have just returned from a great, relaxing long weekend at Drumcovitt House. We stayed in Faughan Cottage, which was exceptionally comfortable, clean with all mod cons one would need. The setting is spectacular- beautiful gardens, great views of the Sperrin mountains and very, very peaceful. Sarah and Chris give you a warm Irish welcome and are very happy to advise on the many things to see in the local area. Derry city is a 20-25 minute drive from here, and it is looking great as the European capital of culture... Definitely worth a visit.
We would definitely return and will be recommending Drumcovitt to friends looking for an easy going, relaxing weekend away.

We came to Roe Loft for a long weekend away. It is a lovely place to stay, the cottage is very cosy, clean and comfortable.

It’s set in the beautiful area of Feeny which is very peaceful and there are some lovely walks to go on. I would recommend you hire a car though. Feeny is quite remote and there isn’t really anywhere in close walking distance except for a spar. If you want to explore Derry or any of the surrounding villages I think you’d be a bit stuck without a car.

I really did love the cottage; it has a lovely seating area out the front where you can look out onto the gardens. There was some milk, bread, butter and jam supplied for your breakfast. The beds are comfortable and the living area is really cosy with a fire. The cottage is finished beautifully, it feels quite modern yet still warm and inviting.

If you want a peaceful retreat in a lovely setting a cosy cottage then Roe Croft is a great choice. I would say there were only two of us staying and I think Roe is the smallest of all the cottages. If you’re a family of four you might want to go for one of the bigger ones.

We stayed in Foyle cottage for a week in May. It was just perfect - cosy and comfortable, and the log burning stove was much appreciated given the cooler weather. The owners, Chris and Sarah, were welcoming and helpful. Sarah had provided a welcome pack of bread, butter, biscuits, jam, tea, coffee and milk or we could have arranged a Tesco home delivery prior to our arrival. Drumcovitt is ideally situated for visiting most of Northern Ireland - we travelled in all directions, even exploring the beautiful Co Donegal in The Republic. The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed, even down to providing cling film, foil and washing powder - a bonus when flying with only limited baggage allowance. What more can I say? Just perfect! Thank you for everything Chris and Sarah!
