Beech Hill Country House, set in 32 acres of woodland, lakes and tranquil gardens, is famed for its warm welcomes and fine food. This imposing Georgian building stands in countryside 2 miles from the historic walls of Londonderry. Nearby are Giant's Causeway, the dramatic sea and mountain scenery of Donegal, and the peaceful Sperrin Mountains. The owners of Beech Hill Country House Hotel maintain lavish hospitality. The chefs offer dishes that delight city regulars and celebrity guests, all prepared from local ingredients, organic vegetables and locally-caught, sustainable fish stocks. Beech Hill has historic links with the US Marines during World War II and has a small museum room dedicated to this fascinating history. There are 6km of woodland trails throughout the 32 acres estate. Horse-riding, cycling and other activities can be arranged.
