Lovely old cottage
This was our first time staying in Acorn Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it. We visited over the Easter break and the weather was v mixed so it was so nice to come back to somewhere cosy and warm. A little welcome pack provided (tea/coffee/biscuits) and some washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, oven gloves, tea towels also supplied. A good porch for dirty walking boots etc. Plenty of room in the living room for 6 people with 2 large sofas and a chair and separate spacious dining room. The bedrooms were lovely with comfy beds, a small bathroom but perfectly adequate and plenty of hot water. The kitchen is also small but well equipped tho could do with a bread knife, and is generally in need of an update. I found some dirty bowls and plates in the cupboards but put this down to previous occupants not checking them when taking them out of the dishwasher, as they were still wet too. We didn't use to the utility area or back yard but useful to have if needed. Location is fantastic as very close to the shops (5 minute walk) and loads of walks from the doorstep. Parking was a bit of an issue for us as there was no space in front of the cottage when we first arrived so had to unload the car from over the street in the wet which wasn't great. Realise it was Easter week so very busy but a shame there isn't an allocated space for the cottage. Despite this however we did have a great holiday and absolutely loved the cottage. Thanks very much.

Nice location and a nice house. Had everything we needed. Thank you!
Acorn Cottage was beautifully presented, had a lovely warm family feel and was very close to all the amenities. Very comfortable beds and plenty of space for 6 people. We all loved this cottage and will hopefully be back in the future. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.
