Things have been very busy in the garden this week as we try and find any window we can to get the grass cut betwen the frequent short sharp showers! We're keen to try and get the garden into shape before the autmn kicks in in earnest and we start having to get on 'operation leaf collection' which makes us realise just how many trees we are fortunate enough to have about the garden! We're also starting to build up the wood pile both for our guests to use and for the house as the days become shorter and an evening fire is somethinng to look forward to.

Out on the farm the recent continuing wet weather means the stock are being brought inside for winter slightly earlier to stoap the fields being poached i.e. being turned into muddy quagmires and damaging the soil structure and impacting grass growth next year. It's a hard decision to take as bringing the animals inside early means that the winter feed stocks have to last longer, but it's the right thing to do for the longer term.


We still have vacancies for Halloween and Christmas / New Year. Please contact us (drumcoviitt.feeny@btinternet.com) or call us (02877781224) if you would like to come and stay for 2 nights or more, we look forward to seeing you at some point this year!


Although we are no longer offering B&B, those guests staying in Faughan Cottage and Foyle Cottage can enjoy relaxing in front of the wood burning stoves, while those guests choosing Roe Loft can appreciate the fine views over the garden and surrounding hills.

We are listed here in Alistair Sawday's Special Places to Stay guide.

We also have entries in Trip Advisor from previous guests which may be of interest, these are listed here.
We were also pleased that Drumcovitt has previously been nominated by some of our guests for entry into "The Good Hotel Guide 2007" and that "Georgina Campbell's Best of the Best Guide 2006" also included Drumcovitt.

Thank you for your kind words and recommendations to these two worthy guides- they do not charge for entries -places are included on merit. We are so delighted and just hope we can maintain the standards.
