Don and Barbara have made this B&B an Oasis away from home. I've stayed here a good few times this past year with Covid and so many impossible things happening, yet they have stayed so welcoming and warm. The view, the rooms, the breakfast, the ambience and "Tammy" are truly "Simply the Best"

Acorn B&B is more than your regular B&B, it makes you feel at home yet on a getaway. The views are magestic, every morning you site beautiful birds and get the early morning sea breeze. The breakfast is delicious and served with love. Tammy(the Labrador) shows so mu h affection during your stay, you'd swear that you were family. The Wi-Fi is top of the range better than a hotel I stayed at the previous night. Don Atkinson (owner) was always ready with a smile and joke to put one at ease. Don is very professional, laid-back and easy to talk to.
