A gem of a B & B in lovely Combe Martin. Spacious and tastefully decorated room with excellent breakfasts. Steve was a very warm and friendly host and made me feel very welcome. Excellent location being only a short walk to the main street. Highly recommended.

Good value - most excellent hosts - and fab breakfast nosh! If you wish to stay perfectly adequate surroundings; Acorns is for you. A most welcoming couple - Steve had to do most tasks with Denise having recently had an operation so even more commendable. His breakfast skills are not bad at all!

Had a fabulous week at Acorns which made this summer holiday perfect. My husband, son and I stayed in the family room which was en-suite and just right for our needs. After all it is only for sleeping in, TV had a DVD player and the wi-fi was free. Very lucky to find a place that has free parking too... More

You enter via the back door, not the prettiest, and certainly not past a pretty garden as some one commented, have a look at my pics of the entry!!!Parking was really awkward up a verrrry steep very narrow lane, then away from the hotel. The lounge/bar/ sitting room was... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the guest house and had a lovely time. The guest house is very well situated, just overlooking the beach at Combe Martin. The free parking is accessed up a very steep slope behind the accomodation, so once parked the car was safe. The room we were allocated (room 1) was small, almost too small... More
