Previous visitors' comments about The Arch:
The location was spectacular but in an understated way, if that makes sense, with a natural garden.
Mr Dunn, Bury, May 2013
The Arch is a clever conversion from the original use. The Arch was a very good base from which to make day excursions and, additionally, we also found a number of good pubs and eating places within a 10 minute drive.
Mr Bonner, South Shields, May 2013
Superb accommodation, very cosy and maintained to an excellent standard. We would stay here again.
