ABOUT CARNTOGHER CABINS

Carntogher Cabins is a unique luxury glamping site set on a family farm in the heart of the Sperrin mountains. We are located in Slaughtneil a small townland a few miles from Maghera, Co. Derry. Our gorgeous cabins are self-catering and come with a fully equipped kitchen and shower room and sleep 5. The cabins offer magnificent views overlooking the Sperrin mountains and are an ideal location to unwind, relax and get back to nature.

Pack your walking boots and enjoy ‘The Carntogher History Trail’ which starts only a short distance via paths from the cabins. The cabins are also only metres from a monument known locally as ‘Slaughtneil’s Giants Grave’. While being in the heart of the country we are also only 40 mins drive from the cities of Belfast and Derry and 30 mins drive from the Causeway coast and Benone beach.

So why not come and experience a unique glamping holiday in a spectacular location and experience all that Mid Ulster has to offer.

REVIEWS

Very tranquil

This place was so good we’d visited twice. Very tranquil and coming from Belfast you get the best night’s sleep as there is no noise. The views are fantastic and I’d recommend walking 20 minutes up the hill to visit the giant’s grave. Now that lockdown is being lifted this will be our holiday this year.

Fantastic Spacious Cabins

Fantastic, spacious cabins which are superbly furnished. Everything you require for a comfortable stay with beautiful views. They really are a credit to the owners who were very welcoming to us. We look forward to returning soon.

We will definitely be back!

Great break away with the family, our first experience glamping and it was superb. Catered for all our needs and was so clean and well finished both inside and out, credit to its owners. We will definitely be back again, the kids didn’t want to leave it lol
