Northern Ireland 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.
