“Perfect Weekend Away”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I have just returned from a weekend away with my wife and have had to write my first review on Trip Advisor as I was so pleased with our accommodation. The Retreat was a 5* gem of a place and exceeded my expectations. Every modern convenience has been thought of and the whole place was sparklingly clean and well-equipped with everything you could need for a break away. We especially appreciated the breakfast hamper with freshly baked bread. Thank you for the extra loaves Joy - delicious! If you are visiting the East Devon area, then you are in for a superb treat if you book the Retreat. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

It's wonderful to read such fantastic comments - and just delighted you enjoyed the bread - especially as it was such a special occasion for you.

Very much hope to see you again - and readers - our new Apartment here at Hedgehog Corner with slipper bath is available from December onwards for couples seeking peace and relaxation.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to do such lovely lines.

“We wouldn't change a thing”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Firstly, thank you to Joy for making us feel so welcome in her home and for enabling us to enjoy two wonderful days at the Retreat! From the moment of booking up until our departure, we were kept well-informed and given details of local events and handy information which saved us lots of time. The accommodation is just as lovely as the pictures show: bright, airy and immaculately clean! The rain shower was fab, the bed super comfy and the reclining sofa a nice treat. Every time there was something we needed we opened a cupboard and it was simply there. The attention to detail is fantastic, with lots of modern features, and we are sure lots of future reviews will say the same thing. The location is great too, only a couple of minutes taxi ride from The River Cottage HQ and a short drive from the lovely restaurants of Lyme Regis and Axminster. Although we had the privacy of a self-catering unit and our own private parking space, it was also very handy being in the grounds of Hedgehog Corner B&B, with Joy and staff on hand when required. The breakfast hamper was exactly what we needed, with the best homemade bread, fresh eggs, butter, jams, juice and cereals etc. We had booked the Retreat to celebrate my 40th birthday, and I am so glad that we did as it was just perfect!!!

Thank you so much for such lovely words about our new Retreat Cottage for Couples.

I am pleased you enjoyed the Breakfast Basket and our home made bread. Being foodies I did appreciate your kind words about it.

So glad you enjoyed such stunning weather - the Jurassic Coastline at its best!

I look forward to welcoming you again.

“The Retreat Cottage - a treat it was........”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Sunday 26th August - for one night only
I booked a one night get away for my Daughter and I to spend some quality time together with facepacks, DVD's, Vino and relaxation. The Retreat Cottage is a self contained apartment. Very well equipped with everything Joseph Joseph that you can imagine! Sofa's that stretch out to almost laying down point, a massive walk in shower, towels, blankets, picnic box, and everything a well equipped apartment needs. Definitely coming back for a visit in winter time to try a romantic break this time......... I can imagine it to be very snug.

“Luxury, Romance and Comfort at the Retreat”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in May 2013

To celebrate several years of being together as a couple my hubby and I decided to take ourselves off to Lymn Regis for a Romantic break. We had stayed at Hedgehog Corner the B&B before but this time wnated something a little different so we opted for the Retreat.
We were delighted with the decission it was absolutley perfect. The Retreat is fitted with the best of equipment, all mod cons and comfort, and completely private. The rainfall shower with underfloor heating made me want to stay in the shower far too long, and gave me ideas for my own bathroom redesign (more work for hubby at home).
There is a private parking space for my car which is about 10 steps from the door, although if you ahve an electric car there is also a charging point in the car park to recharge the batteries.
Joy the owner, had provided a hamper of goodies for breakfast, tea, coffee milk etc as well as a fabulous home made loaf.
The pub is within walking distance and the Cobb is only a five minute drive away. We are both foodies and made the most of our stay by eating at Hix's Oyster House and River Cottage HQ. Taxi's to both are very reasonable and details of the local taxi company were provided in the information pack.
There is nothing I can think of that I wanted or needed that had not been taken care of, Joy is a local person and wealth of knowledge.
We will be going back to the Retreat an may even go in the winter and pray to be snowed in so we can not leave!
Thanks for making our anniversary so special.

This well appointed self contained accommodation was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Situated 5 mins from Lyme Regis it is ideal for exploring West Dorset and South Devon. We spent a wonderful weekend here in August and would thoroughly recommend it. Our host, Joy, was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning.

It is very kind of you to write such lovely lines about our new Retreat Cottage with its own garden which is perfect for couples to enjoy time out together.

Glad you found the location convenient for the coast at Lyme Regis and of course we are so near River Cottage too.

Thank you for your lovely words and hope to see you again one day.

“Perfect base to explore the area!”

person found this review helpful

We stayed in The Retreat for 3 nights at the end of July and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a warm welcome from Joy and loved the super modern look of The Retreat, which has all mod cons in every department, great kitchen, ace shower, comfy bed and reclining sofa's!

The location is a few minutes north of Lyme Regis, and a few hundred yards from the main coast road, so perfectly placed to either hit the beach, or go off exploring. We booked a table at Hix and got a taxi in to Lyme Regis which cost us £10 with tip each way, so we could all have a glass of wine or two. We didnt get chance to try River Cottage HQ but I guess that just gives us the perfect excuse to return !

Overall I would say excellent value, excellent accommodation and perfect location - thanks Joy !

We had a three night stay in the separate Retreat cottage and were very impressed. Joy has thought of everything and has not only provided a space that is functional, well-equipped and immaculately clean, but has a bathroom with several nice features such as a heated mirror and rainforest showerhead! To set things off, we were also provided with a free mini-hamper, a private parking space and a peaceful and relaxed setting. If we visit the area again, we are very likely to return!
