We spent half-term break in Roe Lodge - found it to have plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 kids. Accommodation very clean and well laid out - this is an upstairs Loft but very private and everything you need to self-cater. Owner was very helpful - provided board games for kids, maps of local walks - and even brand new Welles for me as I'd forgotten mine.
Location is superb to explore local walks - we enjoyed Banagher old church and Banagher dam (quite a steep incline) and in particular walks at Roe Valley. Also well suited for 3 or 4 trips in Derry city. We parked for free just beside Ebrington barracks and then walked across Peace bridge. We timed it well for city of culture events, Halloween fireworks, Turner prize 2013 - but these aside there's lots to do in Derry.
Special mentioned Fitzroys in Derry (city side) - we ate there twice - Mons and Tues are 50% off - rest of week 30%. For food at Drumcovitt I'd booked a Tesco delivery and this worked really well. Overall, we had a great time - the accommodation was very comfy and we felt fairly priced - would definitely recommend!
