We stayed at little acorn while we had a new kitchen fitted and had a lovely time. It's a real home from home with every need catered for. The beautiful surroundings made it even more special. I would recommend it and would definitely be back
We had a lovely few days staying at Little Acorn. A very peaceful location with great views out across the fields. The cottage is really well equipped and the fresh eggs left for us by the owner were wonderful. Would definitely stay again.
Cosy and peaceful
We enjoyed a few days in the Sussex countryside after Christmas and Little Acorn was the perfect place to relax. The courtyard was great for our dog and the cottage had everything we needed to self-cater. It was in a really good location so we never had to drive too far to reach the sea. A lovely stay. Thanks.
Lovely quiet break
Little Acorn was exactly as shown on web page. Clean & comfortable - became our home from home for the week. Beautiful quiet location ( apart from the cockerals!) and ideally situated for visiting coastal or inland attractions around East Sussex and beyond. Very friendly and helpful owners on site.
