"A Lovely Colourful Cottage"

What a fantastic place Gortconny cottage is. Myself and six of my friends stayed here for two nights and it was just delightful. So well equipped with everything we needed to make it a wonderful stay. The cottage itself was so warm and cosy, and in such a relaxed setting so even though the weather wasnt the best it didn't bother us at all to stay inside the cottage playing games and drinking copious amounts of tea. Would love to go back again someday for longer.
