That's it, perfection. Spotless, wonderful cottage, over and above that expected and such attention to detail. Making a lovely home from home base to explore. Arrived as strangers left feeling made new friends,Amanda and Derek are amazing hosts. Welcome tray, milk, wine on arrival and warm bread on the first morning delivered to the front door! Beautiful home made cake on Wednesday. Never booked anything like it before. Brilliant, thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us.
Hard to know where to begin, really - but I'll try. First, the cottage itself; the thoughtful planning, tasteful design choices and the sheer quality of the materials used put Acorn Cottage right up there at the very top. We’ve stayed in all kinds of holiday accommodation over the years, from the excellent to the truly dreadful – but never in a place of this quality. It’s in a class by itself.
We loved the area – it’s a beautiful part of the country, and although we could have had better luck with the weather, it didn’t matter a bit – we clearly barely scratched the surface of the possibilities for exploration. One thing is for sure – we’ll return when an opportunity next presents itself.
The owners, Derek and Amanda are delightful hosts; nothing is too much trouble. We unreservedly recommend Acorn Cottage - or for that matter, either of the other rental properties at Little Howle Farm; an enjoyable stay is guaranteed.
Acorn Cottage is set in a lovely location with a relaxing atmosphere. The cottage is finished to a high standard making it a special break away.
Amanda the owner was very accommodating throughout our stay. We'll visit again!
Well where to start ! From the moment we arrived we just knew this was going to be something extremely special and it was.
Amanda greeted us so warmly, as if she had known us for years, she showed us round this is an upside down property with the bedroom and en-suite downstairs, I would recommend you remove your shoes on first entry due to the very high standards inside, light coloured carpet on the stairs, it would be a shame to spoil this for the guests following you, the rest of the floors are wooden with rugs strategically placed for your comfort.
Every little comfort has been so well thought out, on the first morning there was a lovely warm crusty loaf to enjoy with breakfast, very welcome, it is just a beautiful location and the hard work Amanda and Derek have out in to it shines through, I just hope people don't abuse it and at least leave the place as they find it, not difficult really.
We enjoyed our stay and will most definitely be back, thank you both for a wonderful, much needed few days xx
P.S 2 of the 3 days of our stay we ate at The Mill Race, would most definitely recommend, I have a small appetite and they happily catered for this, the braised lamb was just mmmmmmmmmmmmm
Thanks to Derek and Amanda for an amazing stay. This is the best holiday cottage that we have ever stayed in. Complete luxury more akin to a high end hotel but manages to be homely at the same time.
We will be back and will recommend this gem to all of our friends
