Jean and I been welcoming guests into our home since 1993. The manor is a listed, late Georgian property and has been the home of the Davidson family since 1850. It retains many of the original features and family portraits. I have an interest in antiques and restoration.

My two night tay at the Manor House was just what I needed. You feel instantly at home with the hosts, the home was gorgeous as was my room. The town is charming, good food only a short walk away. The location is ideal for many of Northern Irelands sights and scenery. Breakfast was delicious and full of good conversation. The history of the home was fascinating. I would highly reccomend this.

Not your everyday common B&B. Very large, very old mansion with interesting history. Been in the family of our gracious hosts for a few hundred years. Enjoyed conversation over breakfast. Interesting local pub. If your lucky Wally (a beautiful dog) might come in with his owner.

Two of us 'bikers' up for the northwest 200 meeting stayed here, as a good ride to Coleraine and back gave us time for a good ride out. I can't compliment the hosts enough, very pleasant, helpful and humorous, they made our stay all the better, the house and gardens fantastic well loved and above all quiet for a good nights sleep, breakfast well cooked and plenty of it, I would definitely recommend staying here, the nearby pub also very friendly, a pleasure to have visited Eglington and a big thank you to Jean and Alistair, I wish you well....

Host's Reply:
Thank you very much, Pete, for the lovely comments. It was a pleasure to have you both to stay, we enjoyed the chats over breakfast. We will pass on your comment to the staff at ‘The Happy’. Hope you had a good and safe journey back home, and carry on enjoying biking. Best regards, Jean and Alastair.

We arrived a bit late, but Alistair and Jean were very accommodating by offering tea and cookies upon our arrival, showing us to our rooms and offering directions and recommendations for Derry. The B&B was a short 10-15 minute drive to the Derry city center. The rooms were large and this was our favorite breakfast during our two week stay in Ireland. My daughter loved the soda bread served and hoped at every B&B we stayed afterwards we would have soda bread. The grounds were beautiful and we enjoyed the stories about the grounds and family history.
