Local Attractions

Not only is The Meadows on the central and South Sperrin Scenic Route,  but we are close to everything you could possibly need for the perfect getaway. If being sheltered in a nice spot basking in the sun with a babbling brook running by, taking a relaxing walk along the river, and unwinding in the scenic but tranquil farmland setting doesn’t do it for you,  then luckily there is a feast of activities close-by that will keep you busy while you stay with us.

With walks, restaurants, bars, gyms, the Ulster American Folk Park, and the multiplex cinema (to name a few)  just a few minutes drive away from The Meadows,  you will be spoilt for choice with things to do while you’re in the area.
