I have stayed in both the Acorn and the Oak and both properties are beautiful, very clean and very well maintained. Hope is also a lovely village and its a great location in which to explore the area. Chris and Tania are great hosts and are always there if you need anything. The freshly made scones served on arrival are amazing. I cant wait to come back for 2017 new year. I would recommend the cottages to anyone.

The house is spacious and very well equipped with everything you could need and more. Location is perfect for great walks on the doorstep and easy access to days out. Would definitely stay at Belmont again. Morgan has done a great job of providing a home away from home.

The two buildings worked perfectly for the two couples. Accommodation comfortable, cosy and very stylishly converted. Location perfect - on the edge of the village, nestling into the countryside, but only 2 minutes walk from the pub.
