Our history

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. My name is Valerie and I am the owner of Valley View Country House.

Each business has its roots and I would like to share with you the roots of our family business. I grew up in a home where people were always welcome to call at any time of the day. My mother did a lot of entertaining and since we had many relations in the USA and Canada she had many of these cousins come to stay at our home. It was part of our Northern Irish culture, and eventually became engrained in my being. I left home and started out as a business studies teacher and after my second child was born I decided I wanted to be at home with my children more. Having a bed and breakfast was always something I thought I would like to try and in July 1990 my first guests came to stay. These guests very graciously still return to stay with us 30 years later.


We started with 3 small bedrooms sharing a bathroom and our own family sharing a mattress in the attic to accommodate our guests. The business began to flourish and in 1993 we started our first extension adding 4 purpose build ensuite bedrooms. In 2003/2004 we extended the original 3 bedrooms making them spacious with larger bathrooms, giving us a total of 7 ensuite guest rooms.

We now welcome guests from all over the world and enjoy updating and creating rooms that are welcoming and help people to relax and enjoy their stay.
During lockdown, like many businesses, we have had to rethink how our business is going to survive and in doing so we have invested further into creating 3 suites which have their own fully fitted kitchen, living, lounging and dining areas. They are all ground floor suites and have their own external access which means our guests can be totally socially distanced and have the option to not mix among other guests. The facilities are available so our guests can choose whether they wish to prepare a meal or if they prefer to order a takeaway from one of our many well-renowned local restaurants.
