The Acorn Inn

Our charming 16th century coaching inn transports you to the pages of a Thomas Hardy novel. Featured in Tess of the d’Urbervilles, our atmospheric inn boasts old beams, oak panelling, roaring fires and an original skittle alley.

The beautiful rural setting is complemented by our warm, attentive service and fine local cuisine.
