Avish Cottage 4* self-catering near Derry & golf

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Derry, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland
Just ten minutes from the buzz of culture-filled Derry city and a great base for touring Donegal and the Causeway coast, this recently restored 18th-century cottage is a real home from home for families & friends. It's in a beautiful rural setting overlooking the Sperrins and the hills of Inishowen and has courtyard parking and extensive grounds surrounded by dry stone walls. It's spacious, well-equipped and beautifully furnished, and with a pellet-burning stove in the kitchen, woodburners in the bedrooms and sitting room and solar panels to heat the water, the cottage is as cosy as it's eco-friendly. Info provided on local activities, events and produce, and a warm welcome guaranteed!

The Avish Cottage was perfect for us. The cottage was comfortable on the inside and beautiful views around. And quiet. Easy access to all sites. The owner was especially gracious as was her brother.

About the neighbourhood
There's a lot to see and do in the area. At the Avish we provide information tailored to our guests' own tastes. There's a great golf course just a few minutes' drive from the cottage and riding and fishing nearby. Derry has a brand new leisure centre with swimming pool, gym, climbing wall etc. The UK's first City of Culture in 2013, Derry has a great history and a wealth of museums, galleries, cinemas and theatres. The 17th Century Walls are listed as a “You must see” destination by UNESCO. And the cultural year is punctuated by festivals - a jazz festival in the spring, a comedy festival in the summer - when the history of the famous walls also comes to life during the Maiden City Festival - a Hallowe'en parade hailed as the biggest in Europe and the fant... more

How to get there
To make sure no-one gets lost, we tend to meet guests in the nearby village of Drumahoe and take them up to the cottage. For those who come to the Avish without cars and use public transport and taxis (this has been known!) we will be happy to come and pick them up at the City of Derry airport or at the train station in Derry.
