  • "We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at the cottage and we weren’t disappointed."

    It’s extremely well equipped, beautifully done out and the hot tub was amazing! Would definitely book Acorn Cottage again!

  • "This is probably one of the very best, if not the best, Sykes cottage we have stayed in."

    Extremely well equipped and superbly provisioned. We were greeted by a great welcome hamper which someone had given a deal of thought to when putting it together. Everything to make the stay very special from a grand fruit cake through nibbles etc and including a very good bottle of Pear Perry. The cottage was very clean and comfy with little touches like toweling dressing gowns and chocolates on the pillows in the bedrooms. The owners. Peter and Karen, were very welcoming and supportive without being intrusive. All of this is set in beautiful, quiet Herefordshire countryside! You cannot ask for anything more. We will definitely be making a return visit.

    The cottage was beautiful, spotless and clean and had everything you needed, including that great hot tub. The hosts were first class, nothing was too much trouble, telling us about local events and helping with any problems. All in all an excellent place to stay, already looking to go back later in the year.

  • "Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect!"

    From the moment we arrived we had a friendly welcome and the cottage had everything and more. Our two boys were super excited to find a easter hamper with home made goodies as well as the little easter treats dotted around. The cottage has all the little extras including towels, bath robes, hand wash, toilet rolls, body wash as well as all the necessities in the kitchen including all condiments as well as tea, coffee and a small bottle of milk. There is all the information you need to ensure you can work all appliances in the cottage as well as information leaflets about the local area. We visited West Midlands Safari Park and Drayton Manor both are excellent for all ages. We also visited the local pub The Salwey Arms which serve a delicious roast dinner. The hot tub was amazing and stayed at temperature. It gets tested daily which is fab. The cottage as well as the surrounding area is really well kept. On our last day Pete & Karen took the boys up to see the farm animals and the tractors which was just the perfect was to end our weekend away! If we travel to that area again we would not hesitate to book Acorn Cottage for another stay. Thank you Pete & Karen for such a wonderful stay, your cottage is fabulous!

  • "Well, what a gem!"

    This cottage is everything and more than we hoped for or expected. So warm, welcoming and comfortable, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. We wish we could have stayed longer but it seems the visitors coming after us were staying for the 5th time so that says it all really. The hot tub was a real bonus and we used it every day - also clean and well maintained and checked daily by the owner. The location is peaceful but very handy for visiting Ludlow, Leominster, Bromyard, Shrewsbury & Hereford. Berrington Hall is close by and worth a visit. Thank you for a love;y and relaxing week - you may well see us again!

    The property was spotless, cosy, comfortable and very well equipped - a credit to the owners. It's perfect for a couple's getaway but would also easily suit a family of four or two couples. We loved the hot tub and appreciated the robes provided, as well as the many other welcoming touches such as wine, cake and homemade jam!

  • "Acorn cottage is a little gem of a place."

    It's set in a quiet location on the owner's property, but it's still private. There was a lovely welcome pack from Peter & Karen who were available if we needed anything, but we hardly ever saw them even though their house was next to the cottage. We had a very relaxing week & enjoyed local walks & then the hot tub in the evening's. The cottage is immaculate inside & out & is a credit to the owner's. I would strongly recommend a stay at Acorn cottage.
