Located just outside the Co. Londonderry town of Limavady, the sylvan stunner's picture postcard setting boasts a three-mile linear stretch of river and mature woodland, backed by brooding Binevenagh Mountain.
The Resort’s 118 bedrooms feature five sumptuous, individually-designed suites and fifteen fabulously capacious family rooms. We seriously recommend you splurge on a boutique-style suite to fully experience that luxurious touch. With extra seating, jacuzzi bath, espresso coffee machine and sweeping estate views, you’ve got one seriously sophisticated boudoir beauty.
After a day's sightseeing, pamper yourself at the Roe Spa with an Elemis facial, wrap or massage. Exotic scrubs, rasul mud treatments and delicious bathing ceremonies also bring pals and paramours together for double the feel-good fun. Top and tail your spa-time at the Aqua Meditation Chamber and Relaxation Suite. Then take a dip in the indoor pool with steam room, sauna and jacuzzi.
As the name suggests, Greens restaurant serves great food with a verdant view of the Resort's golf course. Local produce is to the fore (pun intended) and it’s a good spot for a bit of mingling with locals equally enamoured of its fine dining menu which includes Ham Hock Terrine, Rump of Lamb and Toffee Apple Cheesecake.
The Coach House Brasserie, set in a restored 18th century yes, you’ve guessed it, coach house, offers a more informal brasserie-style dining option. And O'Cahan's & Coach House Bar provides a traditional tipple and live weekend music which has residents partying into the wee small hours.
The North West location means daytrips to Derry, Donegal and the Giant’s Causeway are all within easy driving distance. Park your car on the nearby award-winning Benone Strand – a seven mile stretch of Blue Flag sandy beach. Or take the Bishops Road to the summit of Binevenagh and back down to the precariously perched Mussenden Temple. What a sight!
