Comments from recent guests at Acorn House:

May 2013. The Brown Family.
Dear Gail and robert,
Thank you once again for a lovely family weekend: For your welcome card,cake and wine.
Thanks for replacing the microvave so speedily.
Your new range of bicycles was an outstanding success- enjoyed by everyone ,especially the Grandchildren!
Acorn House is quite the best holiday home we have ever used(and we have been having family holidays for over 25 years!)
You have thought of everything!
If it is free for the first May Bank holiday in 2014 would it be possible to book it again?
Looking through your visitors book we can see we are not alone in appreciating all you have done to make Acorn House such a wonderful home.
With every good wish and many thanks again.

May 2012. Mel, Em and the Hens! Birmingham, London, Oxford, Newcastle.
"Held my friends Hen do here at Acorn House and it has been brilliant! Such a beautiful house which has everything you could ask for! Really felt welcome by Robert and the wine and cake was a really lovely touch. Staying in the master bedroom has been wonderful, especially waking up to those amazing views - even in bad weather!
Whilst organising the booking of Acorn House, Robert couldnt have been more helpful if he tried! Suggesting activities, putting me in touch with a hot tub company and helping me source a mobile pampering company.
Thank you so much for all the help and providing such a wonderful home in this amazing location! Would love to come back one day."

S Family (Leicester, London, Nottingham, Rugby and Stoke)
"It has been a pleasure to stay in this clean and well equipped accommodation, which made our short break a relaxing one (just what we wanted)..... The walks which some of us went on were wonderful and refreshing.... Next time and there will be a next time, we will have to be well equipped with hiking boots. The garden more like a cricket ground was well used by all, playing cricket. Views around the house are breathtakingly beautiful especially watching the sunrise from the kitchen window.
In the few days we were here, we played, ate, drank, chatted, walked and relaxed. A wonderful time was had by all, in so much that we all agreed to do it again soon, but rather than a few days we would stay for a week or two."

Our stay although brief, was one of the best multi-family holidays we had been on.
