Overview

The family-run Beech Hill Country House Hotel occupies a Georgian property built in 1729, and is set in woodland filled with ponds and waterfalls. Among the hotel's previous guests are A-list celebrities and politicians including Bill Clinton, Will Ferrell, Jude Law and Tommy Hilfiger.

The hotel was used as a base by the US Marines in World War II, and has a wartime archive and a memorial to the Marine Corps.

Londonderry -- an "artistic and cultural hub" with a "splendid riverside setting" (Lonely Planet) -- is less than 10 minutes' drive away. The River Foyle, which has excellent fishing and some of the best oyster beds in the UK, is 20 minutes' drive away. It's also an excellent wildlife-spotting destination -- you might see dolphins and seals, or huge flocks of migrating birds.

The Sperrin Mountains -- Northern Ireland's largest mountain range, with undulating hills, quiet valleys, boggy uplands and diverse wildlife -- are a 35-minute drive away. The Giant's Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just over an hour's drive away.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the hotel's "imposing 1729 building, surrounded by the beech trees that gave it its name, has all the grace and exquisite proportions you associate with the Georgian era". House Rooms are in the original manor house, while Garden Rooms are in the modern wing.

The Ardmore Restaurant sources local products from nearby farms and local fishermen. There is also a gastro pub for more informal dining. Vegetables and herbs are gathered daily from the hotel's garden.

Golf, horse riding, hill walking and other activities can be arranged by the hotel for a supplement.

The location and the old house are fabulous but they are at the stage of needing some TLC.

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful but they need a lot of training in the basics. They did not clear tables, open wine even when specifically asked, but they are trying so hard it is obviously a lack of training. The hotel also ran out of Guinness and had no idea what Pernod was!

Our room at the Beech Hill was spacious and comfortable. Dinner and breakfast we had at the hotel were of superior quality. Most importantly the staff was friendly and helpful - they couldn’t do enough to make us feel welcome.
