The property

On the rural outskirts of Glenariff, County Antrim, set within a pristine glen lies the charming, three-bedroom holiday home of Gortin Cottage.

With ground-floor accommodation and a good position just a short drive from the nearest shop, pub, and beach, this delightful dwelling welcomes a family or group of six friends who are seeking a relaxing, self-catered escape within the beautiful Antrim Coast and Glens Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Park up outside of your new abode and take a minute to soak in the magnificent views that encompass the cottage.

When you’re ready, step into your new home-from-home and be charmed by an array of well-appointed living spaces, including a fully-equipped kitchen/diner with an impressive range cooker and dining seating, and a sitting room with sofa, chair, Smart TV, and an elegant open fireplace – the true social hub of the home where you and your loved ones can gather each evening.

As day rolls into night, head to the shower room for a rejuvenating cleanse before you finally settle down for a well-earned rest in any of the inviting bedrooms, with your choice of two doubles and a twin.

If you can tear yourself from your tranquil new lodgings, jump in the car and set out to discover what your local region has to offer.

Head into the coastal village of Glenariff, where you’ll find Kearney's Costcutter, which sells homely essentials to cater your visit, as well as The Saffron Bar, where you can enjoy a pint of Guinness or a traditional Irish pub lunch.

In Glenariff, be sure to also stop by the historic locales of Red Bay Castle and The White Arch, as well as the lush stretch of Waterfront Beach.

Further afield, immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the area by embarking on a hike through Lurigethan Mountain Start or Ronans Way Hikes, whilst immense views of the AONB can be had at Fairy Hill of Tiveragh.

To the south, you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to mountainous trails, whilst in the opposite direction, the sites of Kinbane Castle and the popular driving route of the Causeway Coastal will eventually bring you to the world-famous Giant's Causeway.

Enjoy an unforgettable retreat to Northern Ireland by booking Gortin Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location

GLENARIFF

Ballycastle 16.2 miles; Ballymena 18.4 miles; Larne 22 miles.

Resting at the foot of a serene, emerald valley in County Antrim you will discover the brilliant coastal settlement of Glenariff. Also referred to as 'Waterfoot', the names used interchangeably, this quaint seaside settlement is best known for being one of the gateways to the magnificent 'Glens of Antrim', or as the locals call it 'The Glens', a collection of nine outstanding valleys that stream from the Antrim plateau, and which are themselves classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In Glenariff, you will find Kearney's Costcutter, which sells homely essentials, along with the eateries of No 9 Café & Chippy and The Saffron Bar, and the attractions of Waterfoot Hedge School, Waterfront Beach, Glenariffe Harbour, and The White Arch. For a full day out, visitors can enjoy a hike through one of the many mountain trails found within the AONB, whilst in neighbouring Cushendall, eager tourists can delight with a day spent on Cushendall Beach, snap shots of the glens from Fairy Hill of Tiveragh, or soak in some history at The Curfew Tower.
