The County Tyrone region

Shepherd’s Retreat is centrally situated making it ideal for visiting a number of sites of interest in Northern Ireland including the Giant’s Causeway, the Mourne Mountains and the vibrant cities of Belfast and Derry.

Guests will never be short of activities with hill-walking, golf, horse riding, salmon fishing, bird-watching and cycle routes right on your doorstep.

The Sperrin Mountains are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with the wonderful views across the moorland and heather banks, the winding lanes hedged with wild raspberries and traffic jams of sheep grazing peacefully by the side of the road, the accolade is aptly given.


The Area is rich in geological features and archaeological sites, some of unknown purpose such as Beaghmore and Goles Stones, and others such as wedge tombs with a more obvious purpose.

Doravil Estate is an upland sheep farm with forestry. Explore the myriad of winding trails over the property, discover hidden pools and mossy banks in the woods or rent a bicycle and follow the Sperrin Cycle Ways. Sperrin Cycle Routes 2 and 5 pass through the village of Sperrin with route 5 passing the driveway of the cottage as do some of the Sperrin Walking Routes.

Riding Stables nearby will let you hire horses during your stay or you can bring your own and use one of the small paddocks alongside the cottage.

"Absolute Serenity"

We stayed for a long weekend in March, managing to catch the gorgeous weather after the heavy snowfall! Our stay was absolutely brilliant. The quiet was just what we needed and the scenery was outstanding, with the views from the front being fields and river that you could hear in the quite from the cottage. The scenery from the bedroom was bliss, surrounded by thick forest we felt completely alone. Shepherd's Retreat was really a home away from home. With the advantage of no signal made it really peaceful without the annoyance of technology! With it's open fire and plenty of wood to burn made it all the more comfy at night time. We took advantage of the sunshine and brought our lunch down by the river and felt like kids all over again. The cottage itself was immaculate and the double bed was the most comfortable bed I think we've ever slept in! Lucinda was absolutely amazing and treated us brilliantly before and after our stay! The only bad thing we have to say about Shepherd's Retreat was that we had to leave! But we'll be back in September, this time with a baby on the way, as we actually found out we were pregnant during our stay after trying for a while! One word - Heaven!

"Stunning views, peace, tranquillity and comfort"

A very warm welcome with home-made bread and jam waiting for us was such a good way to start our stay at this lovely and comfortable house, where even the beds, linen and towels were the sort you would like in your own house. We stayed in the cold weather, but the house was really nice and warm, and there is a log fire for the sitting room. Very spacious for 4 people, too. The extensive view down the valley really is stunning, with not another house in sight (in any direction). You’ll occasionally see the shepherd (and sheep), but that’s about it. If you want remote and peaceful, you couldn't do better. The surrounding countryside is lovely, too. We stayed a week and had a fantastic break – very sorry to leave.

"Serene, peaceful, idyllic - the perfect getaway"

We stayed at the cottage for a couple of nights. The idea was to relax and recover after the hectic-ness of organising our wedding. And the cottage was perfect for what we wanted: peace, tranquility, amazing landscapes. Our only regret..... we couldn't stay for longer. But we will be back so we can spend more time exploring the fabulous landscapes and scenery.

"Amazing. The most beautiful secluded 'get away from it all' haven."

I stayed here for a weekend in August and to be honest I didn't want to leave. The location and scenery on the drive to the cottage is amazing. As soon as you enter the cottage you feel such a sense of peacefulness and calm. It is a different world. The sound of silence is priceless. The view from each window is heart warming and the interior just oozes with comfort. You could spend your whole weekend with a book in one hand and a glass of wine in the other and simply just sit infront of the open log fire and forget all your worries and cares. Alternatively there are numerous walks through the forest and along the river which is right on your door step. This is ideal if you have young children with you as it is so safe and very child friendly. I couldn't recommend this cottage highly enough. Thank you for the memories.
