Crawford Apartment


Our quaint Cathedral Cottage stands on the site of a seventeenth century house.  It is a charming building within the city’s historic walls and is situated opposite St. Columb’s Cathedral.  Cathedral Cottage, with two bedrooms and one bathroom, offers a distinctive and memorable experience to the discerning and discriminating guest.

Darcus Cottage, which adjoins it's smaller neighbour, Cathedral Cottage, has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. A small Georgian townhouse with character and individuality, facing the grounds of St. Columb's Cathedral, it is ideal for visitors who want to experience the historic atmosphere of old Derry.

The Pump House has three apartments, each with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The apartments are situated in a listed heritage building at the corner of Pump Street and Ferryquay Street in the heart of the walled city.

For those who prefer twentieth century architecture in a quiet residential area, not far from the centre of Derry/Londonderry, we would suggest our nineteen fifties style Crawford Apartment.  Situated in the architecturally appealing Clarendon Street Conservation Area, this spacious apartment with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, overlooks a small park.
