From our visitors' book

We’ve had so many lovely guests staying at Acorn Cottage since we opened our doors in 2012 that we can’t put all their comments here, so this is just a sample!  Unfortunately we've had to remove our visitors' book under our AA Covid Confident status.

The cottage far exceeded our expectations. Such a lovely cottage in an amazing setting within easy reach of so many places to visit. Thank you for the eggs, biscuits and milk and your very warm welcome. We will definitely be back.

R & L and M the dog 10 to 13 December 2014

What's to say that hasn't already been said by previous visitors.  Great place, great location ... it's the little extras like the welcome card, the eggs, cake and milk on arrival that make this place extra special.  We've had 2 fantastic walks; along the skyline ridge from Win Hill to Mam Tor dropping down to Castleton and around Carsington Water. We would recommend two of the pubs in Ashover "The Old Poets Corner" and "The Crispin" - both are dog friendly, serve good food and beer and have a nice atmosphere. Ashover is about a 25 minute walk away from the cottage, take a torch to be seen.
V & C and I the dog 30 November to 2 December 2014

Lovely cottage.  Two great nights stay.  Fantastic base to explore from.  Chatsworth house and Kedleston Hall and Gardens.  This was our first visit to "The Peaks".

D&T 25 January - 1 February 2014

Such an amazing home from home - we found it the best cottage yet too! Also so handy for the classic Edale-Mam Tor-Lathkill walk, hire and ride of bikes on the Monsal Trail (at Hassop Station), bouldering at Cratcliffe and (on Jo and Veronica's recommendation) the extraordinary rocks of Curbar Edge.  Obviously, doing all that demanded some serious food: a proper Bakewell Pudding from Bloomers in Bakewell for starters.  But for the true gastronomic heaven go no further than Oaks Lane Farm: Jo and Veronica's eggs, sausages , honey and marmalade are all exceptional.  A real treat to meet the hens, pigs and sheep too.  Have a wonderful holiday: we certainly did.
E & L, Brighton 18 - 25 January 2014

Best cottage so far and we have used a good few.  Dog friendly and many extras.  Thank you.

Such an idyllic place (from turning into your drive).
