Customer Reviews of The Cobbler's Retreat, nr Arrochar, Sleeps 8
1st comment: This property is finished to a really high standard and provided a relaxing and comfortable stay for our party. Its location was ideal if you are looking for a base to explore Argyle, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. If you intend catering for yourself you need to be aware that the nearest shop only provides very basic provisions. However the Village Inn in Arrochar is first class. Aug 2011.
2nd comment: The photos on the web do not do it justice, it is alot bigger and perfect for dogs. June 2011.
3rd comment: We had a wonderful holiday. We were very, very lucky with the weather (It did not rain until the Saturday on which we came home). The scenery was breathtaking, the house location superb and the surrounding towns/villages full of open, welcoming people and great quality restaurants/tea rooms. April 2011.
