Acorns Guest House
Ranked #4 of 15 Combe Martin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We had initially gone for the camping option at Somersault Festival but given the weather forecast looked a bit shifty (and we were travelling with our 3 month year old son) we opted to book a b&b instead and we were in for a treat. The property is located in a stunning village right by the sea with breathtaking coastal walks just minutes away. The room was great with a comfy bed and nice additions like hot drinks and toiletries included as standard. Most importantly, the hosts Denise and Steve were delightful people who made every effort to ensure we had a good stay including waiting up for us for our arrival when we were delayed to helping us lift our bags into the car when we left.

Thanks again for a brill stay and see you soon!

A great stay for two nights. Lovely clean room, all facilities including wifi. Great breakfast cooked by Steve, even cooked sausages for my Staffie !! Great to find accommodation that would accommodate my dog. Thanks Steve and Denise. See you again soon.

Our visit started with easy parking and warm welcome. Quick check-in with all info given.. We stayed just one night in Room 5 at the back of the house so very quiet, room was just what we needed, small but nice and spotlessly clean. Some fixtures & fittings are bit dated but we didn't expect to stay in 5* boutique hotel so it was fine as we expected. We had our small dog with us and nothing was too much trouble. We have been very well looked after during breakfast which was very tasty, nice choice and quick service. Thank you again for a lovely stay!

A good stay for one night due to attending a funeral. Room was excellant with all the facilities including wi-fi. The breakfast was excellant with a special, smoked salmon & scrambled eggs. Cooked by Steve, eggs where just the way I like them!
Denise and Steve are really good hosts, friendly and helpful, they care that guests enjoy their stay, we will stay again!

This was our second time at Acorns - and it was just as great as the first! Steve and Denise really care for their guests, the premises and the overall function of their establishment. It is rare that we experience such a friendship toward the owners of a guest house that we frequent....but these guys just have that "special something". Personally I would not want to run a Guest House. However - if I was after someone/body to do it for me...I would give Steve and Denise a call. We will visit again for sure.

Thank you for your kind comments, it was nice to meet you again and glad you enjoyed your stay.
We were surprised you knocked the score down from your visit in September, Room 7 and bathroom was totally refurbished a few months ago to a high standard. We strive to improve our Guests experience, thanks again.
