Stay With Us

Acorn Lodge - Harrogate's Hidden Gem

Acorn Lodge is owned by Phil, Ali and Lola (the actual boss!). We bought the guest house in 2004 after Phil was made redundant from his IT Customer Service Manager’s job with NCR. Ali was Head of Psychology at a local school and also does a bit of Life Coaching, runs writing retreats with her writing tutor and is writing a novel.

We have fully refurbished Acorn Lodge, and also built our own accommodation in the old Coach House at the rear of the building. Whilst maintaining many original features of this beautiful Edwardian house, we provide comfortable and stylish rooms and a guest lounge and dining room. Our rooms have extra little touches like whirlpool baths in some, large fluffy bath sheets, quality linen, tea and coffee.  Our location is perfectly placed for walking into town or the conference centre, in a lovely quiet, tree-lined residential street.

We are delighted that we have been in the Tripadvisor Hall of Fame twice – that’s 10 years of rave reviews from our guests! We were shortlisted for a Hidden Gem award to be one of the top 6 accommodation providers and are in the Top Ten places to stay in Yorkshire with Trivago.  We are also in the Lonely Planet recommendations which is high praise indeed!

When we get a chance, we love to sample the delights of the many local restaurants and cafes, getting out in the stunning countryside on our doorstep, travelling whenever we can and skiing. We enjoy spending time on our allotment, growing our own veg and flowers.

We look forward to welcoming guests old and new to our home here in Harrogate.
