“Cosy retreat.”
Reviewed 16 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We have just returned from our second visit to Acorn Cottage & have already booked for next year. The owners Jo & Veronica have thought of everything possible to make your stay a memorable one. The added little touches like complimentary milk, tea/coffee cake, & eggs on your arrival are great. The cottage its self is a cosy barn conversion, it’s very well equipped & stands in a lovely quiet location. Dogs are welcome & there are plenty of walks in the nearby countryside & woodlands to tire them out. We would defiantly recommend this cottage & the number of visitors returning each year speaks volumes.

“FABULOUS!”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I can describe Acorn Cottage, Jo & Veronica in one word . . . FABULOUS! Everything far exceeded my expectations. The only negative I have is that my husband & I did not stay here for the 14 weeks we were in Derbyshire in 2013 because we didn't know about the cottage. Now I know, but it looks like it might be quite difficult booking for several months as everyone who stays here will always book again. Thank you Jo & Veronica for offering such an idyllic setting & cottage. Out of all the self catering I've stayed at in England, Scotland & Wales, this is by far the BEST. Cheers!

“Absolutely superb!”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is an outstanding cottage, the best we have stayed in. The accommodation is excellent and the welcome received from Veronica and Jo was quite special. A card, cake, eggs from their hens, and honey from their bees . There was even a bed for the dog, in case you had forgotten to bring one! The cottage is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and the beds are very comfortable. The dog had an enclosed private garden to play in and plenty of quiet lanes and open fields to explore. The cottage is very well situated for visiting all that the Peak District has to offer and their are four excellent pubs nearby. We couldn't have asked for more!

“A well equipped cottage in a lovely rural setting”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Acorn Cottage is a beautiful converted barn in a lovely quiet location. We found it to be very clean and well equipped with great attention to detail. The owners Veronica and Jo went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed for the perfect holiday. Nothing was too much trouble and they made several recommendations on what to do and where to go in the vicinity. A welcome pack was provided and greatly appreciated. The cottage was furnished to a very high standard and was warm and cosy. Acorn Cottage is well situated for visiting towns such as Matlock and Bakewell and impressive houses such as Chatsworth House. Having stayed in many properties throughout the country this must be one of the nicest and we will certainly return at some time in the future.

“Lovely Cottage, perfect location”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We have had a lovely week in Acorn Cottage. The cottage is lovely as are the owners. The location is perfect, so many lovely dog walks from the doorstep. The cottage is a great location for Bakewell, Matlock, Chesterfield, Alton Towers but is in a quiet hamlet with great views. I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.
