Conveniently located in a quiet ‘no-through’ road, this detached holiday home offers the highest standards of furnishings and equipment. The rooms have been carefully co-ordinated and styled, and there are many additions such as a centrally operated stereo with speakers in all rooms, and a 6ft bed in the master bedroom. The enclosed lawned garden is a perfect place for enjoying a drink on a warm summer’s evening as the sun goes down. The Acorns is located on the edge of Wootton Bridge with walks to Woodside beach. There is a millpond at Wootton Creek; historically there was a mill which was used to grind flour. The creek is a haven for wildlife, as is the pond which is a Special Area of Conservation. Firestone Copse, adjacent to the pond, offers scenic walks and is Forestry Commission woodland – you may be lucky enough to see the famous red squirrels!
