Enjoyed great break here with Family over Easter weekend. cottage very spacious, comfortable and warm. Having 2 bathrooms was great especially with 4 Adults there. Have stayed in various places in Campbeltown but Barbreck Cottage must have one of the best views in the area. Best equipped holiday rental we have stayed in and key holder made us feel very welcome. Excellent selection of books - especially local history- found one that actually mentioned and had photographs of some of my relatives--was so impressed by it that I have now bought copy for myself. Only negative- settee and armchair in sitting room badly needing replaced and room could do with another armchair especially if 4 or more Adults are staying. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked for another 5 day stay in June.
