“Comfortable, clean and well equipped accommodation in a pleasant little town.”

person found this review helpful

When we arrived we found the lodge to be clean and well equipped, providing everything that we needed for our visit. We have lived in Tenerife for the past 30 years and were concerned about being cold in such a property during December, but we need not have worried as the central heating system worked very well and we found the accommodation to be cosy and warm.
It was very nice to see that a decorated Christmas tree had been put in the lounge to welcome us, which was an enjoyable bonus when our two young grandchildren came to visit and found a couple of early presents from Santa under the tree.
The property is located in a very pleasant little town, with supermarket and excellent restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance.
We will be staying again if this property is available for our future visits to see family in the area.

“Lovely lodge for a couple (or two) in a really nice location”

The lodge was really great to stay in, well furnished and attractive. The only thing we were lacking was a freezer, but apart from that all the cooking utensils and everything else was provided. Good wifi. Parking space. Comfy sofas and bed. A local tesco and pub, what else could you ask for! Highly recommend the chinese restaurant within walking distance (especially on thursdays and sundays as its a buffet on those days!). Frinton on sea (beachy) and Walton on the naze (more walky) 15 minute drives away, both lovely locations.

Stayed here for a bank holiday weekend and so glad we did. Lovely spacious lodge with superb decor and facilities kept to a very high standard. Easy walking distance of the village which had everything you would need for short or even long term stay. The owner obviously takes great pride in this lodge and you can tell... Highly recommended to anyone

Just got back from our stay at Acorn Lodge. The barn was spacious for 2 adults and 3 small children. Well equipped with everything you would need. Clean and beautifully decorated. The owner was lovely and accommodated our needs. Peaceful, quite and very secure.

Would recommend Harry's Restaurant and Bar for a top notch evening meal, which was a short walk from the barn.

Frinton beach was a short 10 minute car ride. With free parking all along the esplanade.

Will be staying again in the future, felt like a second home!

Thanks again!

Quite and restful location with everything you need for a holiday. Just a short walk we found Harry's Bar the food First Class and reasonable. A short drive away we settled on Frinton Beach for a pleasant bit of English sunshine. All in all a very pleasant weekend and cannot wait to do it all again.
