The power of passionDiscover the world of Red Carnation
Cairngorms, Highlands Scotland
We are inspired by our beautiful surroundings, deep in the Scottish Highlands. Each of our bedrooms showcase panoramic views of the spectacular landscape, while the verdant countryside is home to a wide variety of wildlife, from Golden Eagle and Osprey to Red Deer Stag and Pine Martin, as well as an abundance of wild flowers, plants and trees.
We are proud that Natalie grew up in the area and are both passionate about our village and Dorset. Natalie joined The Acorn as Assistant General Manager in the summer of 2010, while Richard began at The Acorn as a General Assistant in 2010. We are delighted to now lead this wonderful team together and are always happy to personally help our guests with any requests, before, during and after their stay or visit to our beautiful inn.
I have worked in the hospitality industry since a young age, in a variety of different roles. I began working at The Acorn Inn over two and a half years ago and I have now been promoted to the position of Assistant General Manager. It is privilege to work here, as I have been able to develop my skillset and progress within the company.
I am delighted to lead a wonderful team in the UK, taking care of our guests' reservations. Let us know whether you will be celebrating your honeymoon, birthday, or wedding. It would be our pleasure to oversee your bedroom allocation and put in a special request prior to your arrival. We can also organise any additional extras you may like such as chocolates, champagne and strawberries, which would be waiting for you upon arrival. We will ensure that your stay will be one you fondly remember.
My career began in Kenya, working in wonderful restaurants and hotels learning to master culinary arts before moving to the UK where I worked in a string of hotels and restaurants. I was delighted to join The Acorn Inn in 2015 as Sous Chef and was honoured to be appointed Executive Chef in 2017. My team and I love to work with the fantastic produce that Dorset has in abundance, and it would be my pleasure to help with any personal dining requests.
