This property is part of our English Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Acorn Cottage is an idyllic property ideal for country lovers, on the edge of a nature reserve, with Bovey Tracey and Dartmoor close by.

Situated on the edge of the Dartmoor Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve and within 24 acres of tranquil meadowland, Little Dunley Cottages have been carefully restored and finished to a very high standard. Pristine and tastefully furnished they enjoy pleasant views overlooking the lakes and surrounding countryside. Each of the properties has its own private outdoor secluded seating area and are ideal for family gatherings, celebrating a birthday or anniversary or for those who wish to escape and unwind on a holiday in a truly magical place. Guests can enjoy carp fishing within the grounds, as well as an indoor heated swimming pool, all-weather hard tennis court and games room.
Just a few miles off the Devon Expressway, the holiday cottages are well situated for all attractions such as sandy beaches at Teignmouth, Dawlish and Sidmouth, and tourist attractions. A haven for birdwatchers, and walkers will enjoy the many stunning walks in the area. Pretty Bovey Tracey, one mile, with its numerous shops, pubs and cafes, is known as the ‘Gateway to Dartmoor’, which has one of the best known national parks, offers stunning scenery to ride, walk and fish in. There are a variety of golf clubs nearby. The locality offers a hugely varied range of walks, through woodland, along the coast or nearby on Dartmoor. Dartmoor has so much to offer from its heather-clad tors to dramatic landscapes, Dartmoor ponies, to quaint villages offering Devon cream teas.

For a family day out take a trip to Crealy, or spend a day in Exeter, visit the magnificent cathedral, shops, take a look around the quay where there are little caves turned into shops, or walk the canal path and find the hidden pubs only reached by foot. Torquay offers boat trips from the harbour over to Brixham, or visit Living Coasts where penguins wander freely. Further afield visit the Eden Project or Plymouth to take in the Barbican and the Hoe, or visit the huge aquarium, another great day out. Agatha Christie’s house at Greenway is a must for fans of crime novels. There are many National Trust properties all close to Little Dunley, also visit Dart Valley Steam Train, or Buckfastleigh and see the otters. There are many sandy beaches nearby, or spend a day at Lyme Regis fossil hunting. The Jurassic Coast is spectacular and it is well worth taking a walk on the coastal path. Shop 1 mile.

    On arrival surrounds were beautiful, got to acorn cottage no welcome of staff, had to ring to see were we could get keys from. Cottage itself was ok, dishwasher was still full from previous guests! Windows were so dirty with cobwebs and generally not well mantained. Toothpaste splated up to bathroom sink! Overall i think this cottage isnt upto the standard that you would expect for the money we paid! Wine was a nice gesture on arrival though.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We greatly appreciate any and all feed back received and thank you for bringing these points to our attention. We have implemented a new check list system to our cleaners so nothing is missed in future. As for the cobwebs/dirty windows; due to Acorn being under a lot of trees we do get lots of tree sap/spiders on and around the windows, but we have now had all the trees cut back away from the property and the windows have been thoroughly cleaned. We glad you liked your wine on arrival and thank you again for your feed back.

    Booked three cotages for a family holiday. The location was good, it was quiet but with easy access to coast and moor. Sadly the complex was let down by a general lack of maintenance. The pool was murky although the water was checked and was safe. The area around the pool was dirty with mould in the showers, around the pool and on the blinds. The pool could only be used until 7pm. The games room needs updating. The carpets in two of the cottages needed cleaning.

    An almost perfect stay at Acorn Cottage. The location was great as we were attending a wedding in Chudleigh; only 10 mins away. As well as being nearby to pubs and local amenities. The cottage itself was lovely and big, and provided near enough everything we needed. We did however need an iron and later found out it was located in the games room; this wasn’t noted anywhere. Also, the wifi was not working for any of us, this may be because the router is not in the property? But aside from this, we had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay (I slept like a baby, nice beds), we would recommend it and definitely return. Also the owner (who we did not actually see), was indeed very helpful over the phone!
