The House Collection Acquires Co. Derry's Beech Hill Hotel

Co. Derry's Beech Hill Hotel has been acquired by The House Collection following a multimillion-pound investment with support from First Trust Bank.

The country house hotel is now under the ownership of entrepreneurs Sam Harding, Barry Kemp and Adam Kemp, who between them run a number of local and international businesses.

The Beech Hill’s facilities include a number of function rooms and a marquee for conferences, events and weddings as well as a fine dining and casual restaurant, with food grown and harvested from the estate’s walled garden.

Plans For The Future

Speaking about plans for the venue going forward, Barry Kemp, director of The House Collection, said, “Our goal is to become the best four-star hotel in Northern Ireland, and we want to personally welcome the people of the northwest to the Beech Hill to experience our new menus and enjoy the comfortable surroundings of the historic house.

“Our future plans include showcasing Beech Hill as a unique wedding venue with phenomenal photo opportunities. With a chapel nearby alongside stunning indoor and outdoor facilities, we can provide guests with a memorable day in one location. We also want to celebrate the provenance of food heritage here in the north west, so we’re also updating our fine and casual dining experiences to reflect the produce we grow and source locally.
