Fabulous Cottage
Acorn Cottage is in a picturesque location and ideally situated for travelling to the many interesting places in this beautiful area. The cottage far exceeded our expectations being spacious whilst retaining a cosy feel. It was beautifully presented, immaculately clean and provided everything needed for a perfect stay. There is an enclosed and private garden with garden furniture ideal for enjoying a relaxing breakfast and/or an evening meal and a safe area for children to play. We were given a warm welcome on our arrival and entered the cottage to find milk in the fridge, eggs form the owners chickens and homemade shortbread biscuits which were delicious. Thank you Jo and Veronica we will definitely be returning

Lovely cottage with exceptional owners
We stayed in Acorn Cottage over the Christmas period in 2018. The cottage is in a great location - you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but it's not far at all to local pubs/restaurants, shops and other amenities, and it's a great base for exploring the Peak District. The cottage has ample parking for a couple of cars and is lovely inside - in winter it was very cosy with a woodburner in the lounge, and in summer I imagine it's nice sitting out in the garden or in the summerhouse. You'll find everything you need inside, and if there's anything extra you require (e.g. we needed another roasting dish to make Christmas dinner) then the owners Jo and Veronica are more than happy to oblige. In fact, Jo and Veronica were the best thing about this cottage. They made us feel so welcome with homemade mince pies, eggs, a Christmas card and even a few Christmas presents waiting for us when we got there. They've put together a few helpful folders of information such as local walks with dogs, general things to do in the area, recommended restaurants and takeaways... all of which we found very useful. They provided treats, bags and a bed for our dog (and a stair gate which was handy to stop her going upstairs), and they even brought their foster donkeys down to see us, which was a lovely thought. When our Christmas took an unexpected turn due to ill health, Jo and Veronica went out of their way to help us, which we really really appreciated. We'd love to go back one day - if not to the cottage then to the B&B which they run in their house opposite. Thank you again for everything!

Stay in early September
Great location down country road, like the little touches of the eggs and biscuits, very quiet stay, great rest for us, nice walks and maps provided, but be prepared to stay out longer than stated, as we spent time just watching the wildlife, local sights and towns were within easy reach and the food available from the pubs was very nice (we followed the hosts suggestions on this!!), dog friendly as well! Enjoyed it so will be back next year

Lovely cottage with everything you need for a perfect holiday.
Arrived to find the cottage immaculately cleaned and with some lovely little welcoming touches from Veronica the owner. Fresh eggs and biscuits waiting for us on the table and beds all made up with towels and toiletries. The cottage is very comfortable, peaceful and has just about everything you can possibly need, even down to dog towels and bags! Veronica popped round to make sure we had all we needed and gave us tips about where to eat etc. Very useful information in folders about local attractions, pub grub and local dog walks. Couldn?t wish for a better place to stay within easy driving of Matlock, Chatsworth etc. Would definitely recommend.

Great family holiday!
We had a fantastic holiday! So much to do in the area, we have already decided to go back next year. If you want a perfect location for many derbyshire attractions you have the right place. The cottage is in a quiet location, spotless and the owners can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. All with the added attraction on a farm with local produce available.
