    “We had an amazing week at Acorn Cottage.”

    The cottage had everything we needed and was very well thought out. The owners were lovely and very welcoming. The kids loved 'Farmer Ray' who gave them a tour of the farm and answered all their questions. It's a brilliant location for exploring both Devon and Cornwall, or for doing nothing! This is by far the best holiday cottage we've stayed in and we hope to return soon.
