  • "If you are looking for a perfect family cottage, based within an hour of most major tourist destinations, then this place is ideal."

    If you’re looking for a fresh modern and a cottage with everything, then book here. Fantastic facility, very friendly owners but not at any point did we feel that the location is at the end of their driveway. Totally secluded, not overlooked and the cottage is fantastic. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will definitely return here.

  • "We are a family of 4 - now all adults and stayed at the Acorn for 6 nights."

    The Acorn was clearly very well maintained, is clearly very new and built to a high standard. It is perfectly located to a variety of attractions and walks within 45 minutes drive. We loved the outdoor hot tub - this too was kept clean with daily non-intrusive maintenance. It was easy to get to by car and with convenient parking. We had simple clear covid safe instructions for exiting the property that tells me it's safe for my family. The landlady was easily contactable by phone for any queries. Very neat!

  • "For us the only issue was with the shower cubicle."

    We are what you would consider of average/normal build but felt a litttle constricted and could not apply shower gel/shampoo without turning the shower off and then back on again as there was no way of avioding the water from the overhead shower. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay at The Acorn and would readily return.

    The owners were on hand should there have been any problems and very friendly. The location is good for exploring the area and the hot tub a lovely addition. We would definitely recommend the Acorn.

  • "The Acorn is situated in a lovely area, close to major excursions and attractions."

    We managed to fit in over a weekend shopping at Clarkes outlet, local cider farm visit, Glastonbury, Wookey Hole and even Cheddar Gorge. The owners were lovely, always messaging us to update us on arrival and check out. We were allowed to use the hot tub which made the weekend :) The accommodation is a great size, the bedrooms were lovely, kitchen/living space was great with everything you could think of in the kitchen (only downfall was it was quite cold in the living area as it was open) Would definitely stay here again!

  • "Lovely place to stay, would have liked to have known the lodge was at the end of the owners drive prior to booking."

    The separate 'garden' area has open access to the drive, this would be better if a gate was put up for extra privacy. Local pub Eli's only opens on certain days, the next pub The Black Swan is around 2 miles away in Langport, we would highly recommend visiting this pub, really friendly landlords who made us feel right at home!

  • "The Acorn is loverly and superbly situated for exploring the Somerset levels as well as the Coast and Exmoor!"

    We really enjoyed our stay its well appointed and the hot tub was fabulous and got lots of use and was a very restful end following full days out and about.

  • "The space itself was lovely, really well fitted out with quality fittings but also some little personal touches that made it feel homely."

    The tea, coffee and milk was an unexpected but welcome surprise! We stayed for three nights and used it as a space to unwind/ relax, which it's perfect for. We went out in the mornings and spent the afternoon relaxing in the hot tub. Langport is a lovely village with a great café on the river and some nice quirky antiques shops. The local Tesco express has everything you need. If you're going to visit Somerton, nothing is open on Sundays so best to try a different day. The couple who run it are great and we had some nice chats about the area and the building itself. My only recommendation would be to put a gate to separate the hottub area from the drive and to put a recycling bin in. Would happily stay again!

  • "We were very fortunate to be the first family to stay in The Acorn after its completion."

    The cottage is beautiful and had everything you could think of and was of a very high standard. Hot tub was lovely and the perfect temperature for us, and beautifully lit at nigh-time by the lovely lantern. Sarah the owner was very welcoming and we felt at home very quickly. We would definitely stay there again if we were in the area. (Recommendations for the future perhaps-DVD player and WiFi to keep the kids happy but not essential.)

  • "Our experience staying at The Acorn has been very pleasant."

    The accomodation is very modern and kept very clean. Pets being allowed made this stay the perfect accomodation for us. The hot tub is the winning feature, you can relax at any given moment. The area itself is very friendly with nice neighbours. You can get fresh eggs from the farm adjacent. Overall, we were very happy and would definitely recommend to anybody.
