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.

Wonderful cottage in a lovely setting
We had a fantastic 2 weeks in Acorn Cottage. The cottage is very comfortable and also very peaceful. There is a pretty private garden which because of great weather we made good use of. Jo and Veronica are great hosts and will even cook you breakfast if you so desire! The farm is lovely, pigs, sheep and lambs, hens and donkeys. It is about a mile out of Ashover which is a pretty village and has a butchers which seems to sell everything! We would certainly recommend Acorn Cottage.

Acorn cottage is a brilliant place to stay when in Derbyshire. Veronica and Jo are excellent hosts who were always available to help you if required. We were staying in the B&B which is on the side of their house and my boyfriends parents and sister in the cottage. On arrival there were homemade biscuits and fresh eggs from their chickens waiting for us. They keep cows, pigs, chickens, sheep and donkey and you are able to buy their own sausages, eggs and bacon. Even though it is self catering they will cook you a breakfast upon request, I can't remember how much this costs though. The location is excellent, 10 mins to Matlock and 15 mins to chesterfield and 15 mins to bakewell (would recommend the market pub in chesterfield). They provided folders with all the info we could ever need, menus for pubs and takeaways, leaflets of things to do, dog friendly pubs and walks. Upon request they printed a walk and map for us which was great and you are able to walk around their fields for a shorter walk. The cottage was clean and has everything we could ever need! It is a dog friendly cottage and they do ask that your dog doesn't go upstairs or on the furniture. If like us your dog is used to going upstairs there is a stair gate that you can put on the bottom of the stairs to stop them going up. You're able to leave your dog in the cottage alone but only in a crate, we have our own which we look but I believe they can give you one of you don't have one. There's lots of dog friendly pubs around though so they don't need to be left alone. Great place to stay and would love to go back!!
