We had a great stay at The Acorn Cottage. Big, spacious rooms and quiet atmosphere...we completely overslept and felt so rested. Close to everywhere! Thank you Megan and Raoul for your hospitality.

Enjoyed another night at the Acorn Cottage with all its homely touches.  Wi-fi is a welcome new addition for those that need to be connected.

I enjoyed a couple of nights in this tranquil cottage setting with no TV.  Although the bedroom area is tight, things worked well for me.  The adjacent room is suitable for light self-catering with thoughtful touches.
