Apologies, we haven't been keeping our 'News' page up to date as frequently as we should over the last couple of months as things have been pretty hectic both inside and out. After making improvements to Foyle's ensuite bathroom last year, we have renovated both the main bathroom and ensuite in Faughan. They have received a complete overhaul and look all the better for it! We have also given the games room a makeover, including installing a new tiled floor, repainting it and adding new games such as air hockey and table football.

Feedback so far on the changes we have made has been very positive which is reassuring!

Things have been very busy in the garden as well as we have now strimmed away the last of the daffodils and been working hard to get the garden 'match fit' for the summer - it always amazes us how well we can grow weeds in comparison to the other plants we try and get established! We have had a run of excellent weather recently which has really allowed the garden to show itself off to its best and so we hope you enjoy it if you are coming to stay with us this year.

Out on the farm it's been lovely over the last month or so to watch the calves and youngstock be relaeased out into the grazing fields for the first time after a long winter indoors. After a few minutes of timidly checking the field out, they then run around the field wildly, kicking out and enjoying all the space their new home offers! We are now gearing up to complete first cut silage for next winter's feedstocks for the dairy cows. We're a little bit higher on our farm and so the grass grows more slowly meaning a later first cut. We're hoping that the good weather that our neighbours have enjoyed will stay, just a little bit longer to maximise the quality of the grass that is cut!


We still have vacancies for all of the main holday periods this 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.
