This was our second stay at Acorns, the first being in 2010. It's without doubt one of the nicest cottages we've stayed in. Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and furnished and situated in a wonderful location. It's very well equipped and feels like a real home from home. Mrs Grassi is charming, friendly and helpful and we leave feeling as if we've made a friend. We hope to stay there again next year when we've made our holiday plans for 2013.-
