ACORN COTTAGE. by M. T and Tilly.

5 of 5
We stayed at this cottage from Sept 9th- 16th and had the most wonderful time. Upon arrival there was a cream tea waiting for us and a welcome pack for our dog courtesy of Alison. The cottage itself was beautifully clean and spacious. Alison also left us fresh milk, eggs from her own hens and apple juice. She is a truly lovely lady and host and nothing was too much trouble for her, that said, she did not intrude during our stay. She even left printed ideas of things to do and what was going on in the area. The sitting area was comfortable with a large tv and selection of dvd;s. The wet room was ideal and the kitchen provided for all your needs. Sadly. the weather was cloudy and wet but it did not stop our fun, we visited Brixham, Torquay, Dawlish, Oakhampton and the famous Widdecombe Fair which we thoughly enjoyed. The best thing at the end of the day was a lovely comfortable bed, so cosy ! The cottage has wifi but is slower than at home, we couldn't get a mobile signal. The tv was fine, no problems. Our Labrador enjoyed herself as well, the cottage is quite rural but some great walks and easy to find. There is a local pub which serves good food and drink if you fancy a break. The only downside was that we did not want to go home and cannot wait until we return next year. Alison is really the perfect host, so very friendly, what more can you ask for, it is worth a stay to experience some great days out or in, absolute perfection and a great time to be had by all.
