Testimonials

Acorn has been an excellent partner to the Academy showing flexibility and sensitivity in all our dealings.

We selected them from a strong list of potential buyers for their straightforward and honest approach and we wish them much success in achieving their own ambitions for the Academy site.
Steve Morton
Director of Development, Exeter Deaf Acadamy
We were delighted when planning permission was successfully obtained last year; the fact that it was achieved on program reflects the considerable efforts by Acorn Trinity Square (Julian Hampson and Lucian Grant) put into the community engagement, consideration of our requirements and constraints, and the outstanding design.

Since then they have fully engaged with us and the contractors ensuring clear understanding between all parties. The team have also worked hard to avoid foreseeable problems and overcome the unforeseeable. As a charity taking on a project of this nature, it has been of real benefit working with such diligent and forward-looking developers who have assumed the risk of the project and allowed the charity to maintain and benefit from its investment property holdings.

Once complete, this development will invigorate Trinity Village and will bolster the sustainability and growth of the Trinity House Maritime Charity’s work in support of maritime benevolence, education and safety at sea.

Acorn is a delightful company to work with. Customer care is something which they strongly believe in and this is apparent in everything they do. The developments which they create are beautifully designed with the customer in mind at all times. It is really important to Acorn to recognise how the buyer wants to live in their home and from the flow of the property to the finish and luxury being created, this is apparent. There is always a willingness from them to work with the buyers every step of the way to create a dream home to be enjoyed and not just lived in. In addition, the Acorn team are a wonderful group of people who know how to have fun and support the local area. From Dragon Boat racing on the Bristol Floating Harbour to supporting local charities Acorn are a superb team who are always thinking of others ahead of themselves.

We’re extremely pleased to have worked with Acorn Property Group on a number of projects as their affordable housing partner. As a result of their collaborative approach, we have been able to deliver an increased number of affordable homes in the Bristol area where there is a significant shortage of affordable housing. It has been great to work with their professional and proactive team and we look forward to other opportunities to work together in the future.
John Kearney, Development Manager, Knightstone Housing
AWW has been working with Acorn for over a decade and we share their vision for aspirational design and attention to detail. Acorn has the knack of finding challenging sites and are able to drive the design team to produce excellent award-winning solutions.

AWW gained a planning consent at Loft House a Grade II listed building to covert the former orphanage, to residential use. The building dates back to 1857 and is part of a group of buildings designed for the missionary George Müller to house orphans. Purchased by Acorn soon after consent the apartments were re-looked at, some re-configured and mezzanines added to take advantage of the larger volumes and heights to create exciting and functional apartments.
Philip Bevan, Director and Architect, AWW
We’ve been working with Acorn on Brandon Yard since the early stages of the development process, which has been of great value as it helped us all to ensure that the design submitted for planning was buildable and efficient. From the outset, it was clear that everyone involved in the project wanted to create a truly collaborative working environment, to have fun and enjoy the process. Collaborative working is essential on complex projects of this nature; it promotes openness and a real willingness to overcome challenges without detracting from the quality of the product and its delivery.

Acorn clearly share our vision to create high-quality buildings and so this enables us to have a relationship that’s open and built on mutual trust. Construction on site is going really well and I believe that that's been helped by our strong working relationship. We are naturally delighted to be involved with this landmark scheme
Martyn Osborne, Managing Director, Speller Metcalfe
Lewisham Southwark College is pleased to have sold a parcel of adjoining land to Acorn and it’s been a surprising relief to have experienced such productive working relationships with Acorn.

Not only did Acorn pay a good price but they showed a flexible and collaborative approach as we managed our adjoining development projects. We have enjoyed a remarkable level of mutual trust to the benefit of both our organisations.

We are delighted to be one of the first to secure a waterfront apartment at the prestigious Acorn development of Brandon Yard. The excellent waterfront position in the centre of the Harbour, yet within walking distance to the City, is ideal. We are also very impressed with Acorn's excellent integration of heritage and modern design, and the high interior specifications. The location overlooking the SS Great Britain is also very special - 48 years ago I watched the SS Great Britain return to her dock opposite the development, and look forward to watching the 50-year celebrations from my own window!

We have renovated properties for many years and always looked for a sea view. When we saw Marine Place, we decided that it was everything we were looking for in our dream home thanks to its unique design, the amazing views and its perfect location. I don’t think we ever thought we would purchase a brand new property but it has been amazing. Waking up to that magnificent view and the lapping of the waves certainly make it one of the best decisions we have ever made - who needs to put up pictures when the beautiful scenery changes by the minute?
Dena Mann
The whole sales team have been very professional, friendly and relaxed and they have kept me fully informed throughout the process without excessive contact, which has been very much appreciated.

They have struck the right balance and been very helpful with any queries that I have had and quickly obtained the answers. It has been an enjoyable experience.
Dominic Morgan
An excellent and trouble free experience from start to finish! 
Ron Eccles
Our purchase of a house at Marine Place, Clevedon has been one of the best decisions we have made. Not only does it have magnificent, ever-changing views due to its fantastic position overlooking the Bristol Channel, but the house itself is stylish, filled with light, comfortable and energy efficient and provides us with plenty of space for family and friends to stay and enjoy the experience.

Acorn has been extremely helpful not only during the process of buying but also since we moved in, providing lots of information on the build and aftercare as needed.
Yvonne Perry
We chose The Gardens, Hope House as the setting is exceptional, the building design subdued and in keeping with the surroundings and at the same time aesthetically attractive. Being a small development appealed to us with the attraction of facilities offered by the main Hope House development.

Acorn has been very involving by updating with progress regularly. Attention to detail has been second to none from seeing detailed plans, viewing the model at Head Office and having on-site visits.
Nigel Mackintosh
We were looking for a stylish, easy to manage second home with extra large windows to maximise the view of the sea and when we saw Horizon on Rightmove, we thought it matched our needs perfectly.

We had a very good experience buying with Acorn, the team were very helpful and we’re just so pleased to have secured the apartment of our dreams – we love it!
Terry & Hilary Reily
The commercial space we purchased from Acorn provided us with a blank canvas to put our personal stamp on, creating a unique working environment for our businesses and employees.

Having the existing services such as on-site car park, lifts and serviced common areas in the centre of Bournemouth is ideal for our needs and has encouraged us to purchase an additional commercial floor for our future growth.

I'm delighted to have secured one of the properties at The Dunes in Perranporth as I have been keeping my eye on the project since I first heard about it and have been nothing but impressed with Acorn and their work.

Despite the properties being in such high demand; Acorn's sales team were extremely helpful during this process as they spent time showing me around the show home and answering all my questions. I'm now counting down the days until I can move in!
