“Peaceful break”
Reviewed 31 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Set in a peaceful village location, a lovely little hide away, only a few miles drive from Clacton-On-Sea, factory village etc. Owner Kim made us welcome, showed us around the hideaway then let us come and go as we please, will definitely visit again some time in the future.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 22 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Stayed at Acorn lodge for 4 nights mid October. It was comfortable, clean and a brilliant location for families and access to lots of brilliant pubs and restaurants. Seaside is only a 10 minute drive away and the owners were very helpful with advice on activities in the area and restaurants to eat. Will definitely be returning this Christmas

Thankyou for making our stay so wonderful.

Management Response
22 Oct 2017
We are sorry to hear your review. We do supply directions which have not been a problem for previous guests. We do state restricted access and that we drive our Range Rover through fine. We also state that the lodge is in the grounds of our house. We have not had any complaints regarding the comprehensively equipped kitchen, I'm afraid we have little control over spiders as we are in the country.

“Short break with the kids”
Reviewed 23 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The location is great for access to Walton and Frinton for the beach, great little place quitely tucked away. great instructions from Kim the owner on how to get there and no problem getting the keys.
I had many great memories as a child from this area as it is where i went on holiday with my family, so i thought it only right to let my kids experience it too.

They had an amazing time, it is like the land that time forgot down there, just beautiful beaches and when the sun is shining it couldnt be better.

“Fantastic Stay!”
Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Have just come back from a short break at Acorn lodge, it was a lovely clean and tidy holiday home with fantastic amenities it was in a lovely quiet setting, just a short distance from Walton and Clacton, lots of pubs nearby with great food! We would definitely stay here again! 10 out of 10! The only thing I would say was on trip advisor there was no road name or postcode, and we had a bit of difficulty finding it! The sat nav didn't register details! But it didn't spoil it, we know where it is for next time! Thank you Kim for letting us stay in your lovely holiday home!

“Lovely garden retreat in a beautiful village”
Reviewed 18 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Great location next to 4 pubs - all with food - and a Chinese takeaway which was very good, as well as a Tesco Metro.
House was very nice and comfortable but the fact that there were 3 velux windows and a another small window to the outside in the bedroom, all without blinds, made sleeping in summer difficult.
