Had a fantastic holiday at Acorn Cottage, it was ideally situated for visiting the surrounding area. The Cottage was fantastic, couldn't fault it. The owners were friendly and helpful, providing plenty of info on the area and things to do. There were nice little touches in the cottage. Would recommend and visit again.

A fantastic cottage which is very clean and comfortable, feels like home. The owners were very friendly and helpful. This was our 3rd stay in this wonderful cottage.
Mrs Vincent

The cottage was very clean,warm and cosy but at the same time spacious. The cottage is on the owners small holding and it was amazing seeing all the animals especially the piglets. The location is was very peaceful and relaxing and it was lovely being able to sit out in the garden for breakfast waiting for the robin to visit. The cottage has everything you need and a nice welcome pack which included "blue" eggs and honey. Lots of little extras. Jo and Veronica are friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We will visit again.

Acorn Cottage was very comfortable with some very thoughtful touches, and it was particularly dog-friendly. It was quiet and peaceful with some lovely local walks. It is set in a lovely area with plenty of places to visit within easy reach. The owners made sure that we were comfortable. Many thanks!

We have jus returned from a fabulous stay at acorn cottage ... Cannot praise it enough. We loved every minute. Walking in to the lights on and a cosy warm place all ready for Us as we was arriving late. It's the little things that impress. Even more impressive was the scrumptious lemon drizzle cake and eggs from the resident Hens. Well equipped cottage for dining even fully stocked Cleaning provisions. Bin liners. Even foil and cling film. The doggies are thought of too with towels And dog bed/ water bowls. Even poop bags and the offer to borrow leafs etc if forgotten your own. Cannot praise this place enough. Cannot wait to return. Thanks Jo & Veronica
