Just on the edge of the historic linen village of Upperlands lies Ardtara Country House Hotel. Approached by a sweeping tree lined driveway and set amidst 10 wooded acres, this beautifully preserved country house was built in 1895 by the linen baron Harry Clark. Beyond the lawn lying to the front of the house are a series of paths and trails that lead you through the grounds where reminders of its Victorian origins abound.
The stained glass front door leads into our reception hall, welcomed by the roaring fire, original wall hangings and the grand piano. With original working fireplaces throughout its your choice whether you relax in the drawing room with its high ceilings, decorative cornicing and bookcases, or to unwind in the bar lounge with its extensive wine list and comprehensive array of local (and not so local) spirits, beers and aperitifs.
