On a sunny January day, just look what the Peak District has to offer! Baslow and Curbar Edges are just 20 mins from Acorn Cottage, our 2-bedroom holiday cottage on our farm. What better way to breathe in the sky and recharge your batteries?

Janet Mackenzie Dodds we soooo agree with you about the music but this was our first time and we couldn't find a way to make the advert without music! As you're the first person to comment on our first ad, we'd love to offer you a 10% discount for a stay at Acorn Cottage if you'd care to message us direct. We guarantee no annoying music at Acorn Cottage, just bird song and the odd cow mooing. Quiet and rural, near Chatsworth House and the Peak District. Why not come and see for yourself! Veronica and Jo 🤫

Why do these type of ads have mind blasting squirrel music playing in the background?????????? It drives me mad & so I don’t finish looking at the ads! Yes, I know I could mute the music, but it’s SOOOOOOOO unnecessary & IRRITATING!!!!

Happy Christmas. Hope to be back soon!

Merry Christmas to your both x

We always like to give our incoming Acorn Cottage guests a little treat as they walk in the door for the first time. Sometimes it's home-made biscuits or the lovely warm smell of a freshly baked loaf on the table that greets them. But how about this: a dish of home-made chocolate & marshmallow swizzlers to swirl into hot milk* and create a luxurious hot chocolate! What a way to start your holiday on a bleak winter afternoon......mmmmmmm

*Yes, we supply the milk too 😉
