We stayed here for 4 nights last week and I wish we had been staying longer. Kate is very welcoming and left us a lovely drizzle cake as a welcoming present. The house is perfect for a few days away with everything you need. The views are amazing from upstairs. It is a bit out of Fort William but if you have a car it's no problem. We took a taxi into Fort William one night to have a meal and it was under £15, we used Speeders or Speedy Cabs, very nice driver. We went to Glencoe, stunning and did the steam train to Mallaig, lovely day out. We also went up the cable car on the Nevis range and explored the area. Would highly recommend this property if you want a quiet, relaxing time.
We have recently had a fantastic week away in Acorn cottage which is surrounded by some stunning scenery. The pictures do not do justice to the quality of Acorn cottage. Kate could not have been more friendly or helpful during our stay. We will be booking to go back in the near future.
We stayed for a week and had a great time. The cottage is in a good location and convenient for all the places we wanted to visit in the Highlands.
It was such a welcoming place to return to after a days adventures! The accommodation provided everything that we needed and was so clean and beautifully decorated.
We have two young boys who also enjoyed the cottage and all the area has to offer from steam train journeys, Nessie hunting on Loch Ness, cable cars to Ben Nevis and visiting the Isle of Skye.
Kate was a very helpful host who was there if we needed anything. We would definitely recommend Acorn Cottage :)
Despite the rainy weather, we really enjoyed staying there with my wife and a 20 months baby. Interior is very pretty and everything is tidy like bland new. Kate is always really kind and friendly so does her husband Malcolm. Although price may look a bit higher than the others around, it's definitely worth it and actually it is a ideal cottage where once I'd love too have someday, very pretty surrounded by beautiful woods with a nice view of the Ben Nevis.
There are so many things to see and go around within 1-3 hours distance and we loved everything such as Glen Coe, Jacobite Steam Train, Oban, Isle of Skye, lakes, castles etc... Really hope to visit with nice weather. Oh, and don't forget Kate's beautiful lemon cake which can be one of your purposes to stay there:-)
A very nice holiday accommodation, pleasingly decorated and feeling very much a home from home. Facilities are exactly what one would expect from high quality self-catering - a well-fitted kitchen; bath and shower; lots of storage space in the bedrooms; wi-fi, television and dvd. Parking is ample and the garden is a pleasant bonus. Acorn Cottage is tucked away on a quiet lane a few miles out of Fort William and is well situated for a family wishing to explore the Great Glen and Inner Hebrides.
This cottage is perfect for a holiday in the Scotland highlands and very good value for money. Great accommodation, Kate was very welcoming (including a home baked cake as an arrival gift!), you're only a few minutes drive from the main road and Fort William but it felt secluded and peaceful. You can walk to the caledonian canal in a few minutes and it's about a 2 mile walk to Neptune's Staircase. From there you can walk into Fort William (about a further 3 miles) or catch a train from Banavie station.
We were very lucky to get a tour of the new 1 bedroom cottage (Little Oaks) while we were staying in Acorn Cottage - it's brand new and has been furnished to a really high standard (as has Acorn Cottage). It would be perfect if there's just two of you.
We would definitely return to either Acorn Cottage or Little Oaks.
