  • "A lovely stay in our home county of Shropshire prior to our move overseas."

    A little cottage, had everything we needed to cook lovely meals, wash our clothes and relax in front of the TV on rainy days. It was everso slightly cramped for us, but that was only because we could have done with an extra bedroom - that's our problem though, as we were aware this one had 2 bedrooms prior to booking. The cottage itself was a lovely place to base yourself for a stay. Thank you.

  • "We had a great 3 night stay at Acorn Cottage."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean, very cosy and had everything we needed. There were a number of great pubs nearby for eating out. I would recommend a stay there.

  • "The accommodation was lovely, so comfortable & clean."

    The setting was perfect, so peaceful. The lounge had views of the apple orchard. My dad & I really enjoyed staying here. If you are looking for a holiday where you are surrounded by beautiful countryside & in a peaceful environment then this is the place!

  • "Wonderful cottage, so quiet with dark starry skies and so much to do without travelling far."

    Wi-fi was excellent and extras such as cling film, shower gel, condiments etc. were provided together with milk, eggs and biscuits which were much appreciated. Beds comfortable, lots of space and bathrooms excellent. Robert and Barbara were super friendly and helpful. We visited Oswestry (get a walking plan in town to get the most out of it), Ellesmere (and sculpture trail), Lake Vrnwy and Chirk Castle (NT) over the Easter weekend. We loved the cottage and would definitely choose it again for more Shropshire/Wales explorations combined with rest and relaxation in a fantastic setting.

  • "This was our 3rd visit to Acorn Cottages."

    Every time we have been greeted like family by the hosts (Robert and Barbara). The cleanliness was second to none, and the cottage was comfortable as always. Beautiful countryside location, great for stargazing at night (no light pollution). Thank you to the Cookseys for their hospitality as always. Plenty in the local area to do. Good local pubs (we highly recommended the Red Lion just down the road at Myddle). Supermarkets about 15-20 minutes away.

  • "Great little cottage!"

    Far exceeded our expectations and was far better than it looked online. Our only suggestion would be to reduce some of the furniture in the main room to make a bit more space! For a family of 5 that would have been ideal!

  • "I can really say we had a wonderful stay in acorn2 cottage."

    First time we've had a holiday like this and totally impressed with all the facilities and amenities. The cottage itself is extremely well equipped and presented to a very high standard. Being on a farm, I thought it might be a bit noisy at times but it was so quiet and peaceful. The hosts were very helpful on arrival with general information and were around if you needed anything. This is a place I would stay in again.

  • "Lovely and clean."

    Much larger cottage than expected and well equipped. Fridge space a little small, and no ice tray in freezer compartment. No instructions for cooker or TV. Could do with a radio in the cottage. No recycling bins.

  • "Fabulous spacious cottage."

    Well appointed and extremely clean and comfortable. Very peaceful, rural location but an excellent base to stay whilst exploring the many attractions in the local areas of Shropshire, Wales, Liverpool etc. Extremely friendly and helpful owners who could not do enough for you. Have not visited this area before and didn’t want anywhere crowded this year. Exceeded all our expectations. Really great accommodation in a beautiful area. Highly recommend!

    Our only comment would be that we'd rather have a dishwasher than a washing machine in the cottage, but that's just our personal preference.

  • "We absolutely love coming to Oakdene farm."

    The owners, Barbara and Robert go above and beyond to ensure a memorable and comfortable stay. This is our second visit this year. This time, Robert was incubating chicken eggs, which started hatching the day before we left. Our son was able to handle the chicks and observe them, which was an amazing experience. Barbara also invited us into her art studio to do some activities, which was great fun! We had a couple of minor issues, but Barbara and Robert helped to rectify them immediately. We cannot praise them enough for the excellent job that they do. A huge thanks to the Cookseys for yet another week of memories.

  • "This is a comfortable and well appointed cottage, tastefully furnished."

    Being all on the ground floor made access easy for my husband, who has limited mobility. Fixtures and fittings are modern, clean and in good condition. The owners live on-site and are very friendly and helpful. There is a pretty courtyard garden at the front and a large lawned area at the back, both shared with other cottages. The setting is peaceful and tranquil. The only downside is that - as stated in the description - the WiFi is very weak so we used a lot of 4G and couldn't stream anything. But we had a lovely time and would like to return in the future.

    Plenty of room to relax & such a bonus to have 2 bath/shower rooms ! Set on a picturesque farm up a country lane overlooking beautiful Shropshire countryside. Would highly recommend Acorn Cottage......the hosts welcoming and genuinely friendly! Nice touches ..bath & shower gel, pint of milk in fridge tea & coffee and even a packet of biscuits to welcome us after a long drive!
