Beech Hill Country House Hotel, gloriously set in 32-acres of woodland, lakes and tranquil well-tended gardens, is famed for its warm welcomes and fine food. Despite its rural location this imposing Georgian building stands just 2-miles from the walled centre of Londonderry. Also within easy reach are the Giants Causeway, the wild and dramatic scenery of County Donegal and the gentle, wonderfully scenic Sperrin Mountains.
Proprietor Patsy O’Kane maintains high level hospitality. The creative chefs in her kitchen offer imaginative dishes which delight local regulars as well as high profile visitors such as President Bill Clinton and his wife Hilary. All meals are prepared from locally sourced ingredients, organic vegetables and sustainable fish caught nearby.
Golfing, horse-riding, hill-walking and other activities can be arranged as can guided tours of the centre of Derry.
Beech Hill was a base for the US Marines in World War 2. A memorial to the Marine Corps stands in the garden and every year Marines come from America and Europe to keep alive their links with the hotel and the city. A World War II exhibition and archive is now available within the hotel building and outside there is 6km of woodland walking trails where along the way people can see remains of the camp.
