Customer Reviews of Acorn Cottage, Kippen, nr Stirling - Sleeps 4
1st comment: Acorn Cottage was a very cosy cottage. The owners were very friendly and made us welcome. The fire was lit and the whole atmosphere was relaxing. The owners provided a welcome basket and freshly made muffins. This was a most enjoyable holiday. Feb 2012.
2nd comment: When we arrived at the cottage we were warmly welcomed by the owners, they were very pleasant and most helpful and courteous. The cottage was modern and contemporary and offered all the amenities that you require for a short break or a longer stay, the wood burning stove was excellent and offered a touch of atmosphere to the cottage ,the property was spotlessly clean and well presented with modern furniture and fully equipped fitted kitchen. The nice touch of a welcome basket complete with home baked muffins and a fantastic bottle of red wine and not to mention the gorgeous preserves, left a warm homely glow to our stay. I would recommend this cottage to family and friends and hopefully have time to return later this year. The owners should feel very proud of all they have achieved with the cottage. Well-done Dave and Pam Lawless. Jan 2012.

4th comment: We had a warm & generous welcome in person from the owners. The house is very comfortable & modern. A lovely touch is patio table & chairs both back & front of the house to catch the elusive sun in Scotland. The location of the property is ideal too. Sept 2011.
