We stayed at the Arch Cottage for a mid week break in September 2013.
Myself, my husband, our 11mth old and our well behaved cocker spaniel.
The accommodation could possibly do with a little updating but it is cosy, clean and just what we needed.
The bedroom was large enough for our sons cot (which was provided) with a huge comfortable bed.
The estate is great for walking around and the little tannery shop is very quaint.
They popped over on our arrival to check we were all settled and even left a box of age appropriate toys for our son, which was very thoughtful.
A small milk, washing up liquid and toilet roll was provided, but there is a Tesco in Campbeltown for supplies and a bakery 5 mins down the road.
The only downside for me was that we had no mobile reception whatsoever and internet is not provided.
I think having a phone/landline in the property would have been reassuring/helpful.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed our break, thank you Torrisdale.
