“Gorgeous escape for New Year”

A little gem of a cottage with little touches that make it extra special.
We were left fresh eggs preserves milk and cookies.
The cottage is cosy yet spacious and close to loads of interesting places to visit.
We did not want to travel far but wanted a place to enjoy New Year's Eve with friends.
Ashover has 3 pubs to visit and is a lovely 45 min walk with our dog.
There is a pub at the end of the lane just a short 10 min walk where we were made very welcome for an early New Year's Eve drink. More than anything we enjoyed the log fire and the doorstep walks with the dog who loved the enclosed garden.
Veronica and Jo have thought of everything.
Well worth the visit.

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed October 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My cousin and I have stayed at Acord Cottage twice now. Last September, and now this year too. We meet up there as we live in opposite sides of the country. It is quiet and peaceful, and Veronica and Jo are the nicest people and nothing is too much trouble. There is always a cake and some fresh eggs waiting for us on our arrival. Easy parking too! I have never stayed anywhere else that is as clean as this cottage. Plenty of space also. Takes a bit of finding, so use your sat nav! But well worth the effort. Would thoroughly recommend it.

“A real gem”
Reviewed May 9, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The cottage was very clean,warm and cosy but at the same time spacious. The cottage is on the owners small holding and it was amazing seeing all the animals especially the piglets. The location is was very peaceful and relaxing and it was lovely being able to sit out in the garden for breakfast waiting for the robin to visit.
The cottage has everything you need and a nice welcome pack which included "blue" eggs and honey. Lots of little extras.
Jo and Veronica are friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble.
We will visit again.

We have jus returned from a fabulous stay at acorn cottage ... Cannot praise it enough. We loved every minute. Walking in to the lights on and a cosy warm place all ready for Us as we was arriving late. It's the little things that impress. Even more impressive was the scrumptious lemon drizzle cake and eggs from the resident Hens. Well equipped cottage for dining even fully stocked Cleaning provisions. Bin liners. Even foil and cling film. The doggies are thought of too with towels And dog bed/ water bowls. Even poop bags and the offer to borrow leafs etc if forgotten your own. Cannot praise this place enough. Cannot wait to return. Thanks Jo & Veronica

“Cosy retreat.”
Reviewed December 16, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We have just returned from our second visit to Acorn Cottage & have already booked for next year. The owners Jo & Veronica have thought of everything possible to make your stay a memorable one. The added little touches like complimentary milk, tea/coffee cake, & eggs on your arrival are great. The cottage its self is a cosy barn conversion, it’s very well equipped & stands in a lovely quiet location. Dogs are welcome & there are plenty of walks in the nearby countryside & woodlands to tire them out. We would defiantly recommend this cottage & the number of visitors returning each year speaks volumes.

“FABULOUS!”
Reviewed October 10, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I can describe Acorn Cottage, Jo & Veronica in one word . . . FABULOUS! Everything far exceeded my expectations. The only negative I have is that my husband & I did not stay here for the 14 weeks we were in Derbyshire in 2013 because we didn't know about the cottage. Now I know, but it looks like it might be quite difficult booking for several months as everyone who stays here will always book again. Thank you Jo & Veronica for offering such an idyllic setting & cottage. Out of all the self catering I've stayed at in England, Scotland & Wales, this is by far the BEST. Cheers!
