Lovely place to stay. Our hosts were vey accommodating and friendly. The guesthouse was super clean and comfortable and our hosts made every effort to accommodate every need. The guesthouse is just a stone's throw from the town centre and we easily found our way around. It is only 6 minutes from Ullswater and 26 miles from Gretna so a... More

We stayed there on our first night of the C2C challenge. We were a party of 11 and arrived late. Nick and Karen were very understanding and accommodating. They were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The bikes were locked away securely and the van parked safely at the back of the property. We had stayed at the Acorn... More

We stopped here whilst competing the c2c, and this place is right on the route. Room was very nice and clean, modern bathroom and had a huge TV. The bikes were locked away nice, safe and dry for us. My only issue was that we asked for breakfast before 8am and we were told it was not possible, but then... More

Stayed here on a C2C cycling trip, the owners were friendly and accommodating and went out of their way to help make it a relaxing and complication-free stay for me. They make a great breakfast too. Thanks again!

We arrived late, Nick welcomed us in and got our bikes put away, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely clean, comfortable rooms and an excellent breakfast. Highly recommended whether you're cycling or just visiting the area.

I booked here as part of my cycling adventure. I got delayed due to mechanical problems and did not arrive until the early hours. The Owner waited up and let me in with no problem, despite him needing to get and make all the breakfasts. Location. rooms, food and everything else about Acorn was superb. Book here with 100% confidence... More

Nick and Karen could not do enough for us. The rooms were perfect, the location is spot on, only 5 minutes from the centre of town but nice and quiet over night. Breakfast was excellent. Would recommend this place to everybody.

Stayed May 2014 with group of cyclists pedalling coast to coast. Very friendly hosts, nice clean accommodation, great breakfast. Ideally situated for the C2C route and 5 minutes walk to town centre. Highly recommended.

We stayed here whilst taking part in the Coast 2 Coast! Perfectly located on Route 7! The owners were really welcoming and our twin room was spacious and comfortable! I was really chuffed it had a bath for my freezing aching legs! Breakfast was nice with a good selection! Highly recommend this place especially for Coast 2 Coasters!
