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.

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.

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.

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
Acorn clearly shares 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
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 met with the sales team and the on-site project manager and they were a delight to deal with. When they showed us some of the other Acorn sites in the southwest, the quality of the company’s product was obvious. We committed to a unit right away. It turns out we were the first to buy an apartment at Hope House.

I had high hopes for my new home. These hopes have been met and exceeded. The apartment is finished to a wonderful standard and is well-positioned to offer a bustling urban setting.
Location is a huge part of what makes it for me. The atmosphere on the harbourside is always lively and there is so much to do within walking distance.
I came across Loft House online and straight away felt it was exactly what I was looking for. A beautiful, Grade II listed building, with large sash windows and high ceilings but with a beautifully and thoughtfully designed interior. The location of Loft House is perfect for me too in a great area, near to St Andrews Park and the hustle and bustle of the Gloucester Road but less than 2 miles to the city centre. I genuinely can’t wait to move in later this year - and I am excited to buy new furniture to suit my stylish new property.
Thank you both so much for all your help with the purchase. We're all so happy in our new Otters Holt home!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
