We have just returned from 2 weeks in Foyle Cottage with our dog. What a wonderful place to stay. We were in Ireland to attend a family wedding and chose Drumcovitt as it was recommended to us and was close to Roe Park Resort, Limavady where the reception was held.
Our dog was welcome at Foyle cottage - very important to us - and he got on well with the 2 resident dogs Tara and Molly. We were able to book Seamus - our dog - into the local kennels - PAWS, Limavady - whilst we attended the wedding.
Drumcovitt Barn cottages are surrounded by the most beautiful landscaped gardens. I walked Seamus down the front drive - as it was often raining. He enjoyed seeing the occasional baby rabbit and being a gardener I could not resist pulling the very odd weed out of the driveway - made me feel part of the scene. It was nice to chat to the gentleman who tended to the gardens.
You are spoiled for choice with local food shops in the area - Limavady for the big TESCO and cheap fuel – Dungiven (4 miles away) has many food shops - and maybe best of all is Feeny - a village just 1 km away with a well stocked SPAR - we were able to order a newspaper and get our daily bread and milk including wheaten bread, soda bread & scones - staff in all these shops are very helpful.
Across the road from Drumcovitt the farm sells FREE RANGE FRESH FARM EGGS - laid 1 day earlier - and very cheap.
The barn was so very comfortable – and the log fire added to the charm. We had many cousins who came in the evenings to visit us and were so impressed with the whole lay-out. Our neighbours in the other 2 barns were Dutch and French.
Sarah and Chris were great hosts – we would like to thank them for their hospitality.
