“Miss”
Reviewed 26 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

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!!

“Acorn cottage”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

It was the perfect cottage for our family. It was clean, lots of room for us, very welcome feeling, and well situated for peak district visits. We have spend a week here, wish we had booked for at least a month.... We could not have wished for a better holiday.

“Lovely in every way”
Reviewed 2 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Acorn cottage is one of the nicest and not to mention, cleanest , we have ever stayed in. It is obvious that the owners (who we didn't meet unfortunately due to them having a holiday themselves)take the upmost pride and care in their property. There was a lovely welcome pack when we arrived which made it feel extra special ..also, little touches like travel size toiletries and fresh towels were also included. .very hotel style! We certainly will be booking again as there is plenty to do in the area..really enjoyed staying.

“Idyllic little pet friendly cottage in the Derbyshire Dales”

We had an absolutely superb stay in this lovely secluded cottage. It had everything we needed in equipment and comfort terms. Warm, despite the sub zero outside temperature and very comfortable. Our Springer Spaniel was made to feel very welcome, a bed, dish and biscuits were supplied, as was a hint of rabbits in the garden! We were so impressed that we tried to book again whilst there, but sadly our dates had already been taken

“Gorgeous escape for New Year”

A little gem of a cottage with little touches that make it extra special.
We were left fresh eggs preserves milk and cookies.
The cottage is cosy yet spacious and close to loads of interesting places to visit.
We did not want to travel far but wanted a place to enjoy New Year's Eve with friends.
Ashover has 3 pubs to visit and is a lovely 45 min walk with our dog.
There is a pub at the end of the lane just a short 10 min walk where we were made very welcome for an early New Year's Eve drink. More than anything we enjoyed the log fire and the doorstep walks with the dog who loved the enclosed garden.
Veronica and Jo have thought of everything.
Well worth the visit.

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My cousin and I have stayed at Acord Cottage twice now. Last September, and now this year too. We meet up there as we live in opposite sides of the country. It is quiet and peaceful, and Veronica and Jo are the nicest people and nothing is too much trouble. There is always a cake and some fresh eggs waiting for us on our arrival. Easy parking too! I have never stayed anywhere else that is as clean as this cottage. Plenty of space also. Takes a bit of finding, so use your sat nav! But well worth the effort. Would thoroughly recommend it.
