“What Joy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have stayed with Joy several times over the last few years, but this is our first stay in 'Acorns'. This is the premier short-stay accommodation for miles around, superbly equipped as Joy has thought of everything you would need.

We brought some friends who stayed in 'The Retreat' next door and joined us for dinner at River Cottage HQ, a few miles away, but on the second night my wife cooked a meal for all of us using the facilities provided, and we were all able to gather in the conservatory of The Acorns and enjoy the food and drink as the sun set.

Our friends both commented on Joy's obvious love for the accommodations and how well it was prepared, and could not believe what they found when Joy showed them around.

We are already looking forward to our next visit, and recommend 'The Acorns' to any couple who like to pamper themselves for a few days, but like the flexibility of self-catering.

Thank you indeed for such loving words.

It is truly wonderful that our guests return and particularly special when they bring their friends to stay a minutes walk away in our Retreat Cottage for couples just across the grounds in it's own setting.

It was a great weekend with nothing but the sound of laughter tinkling through the summer air. Delighted our guests were able to enjoy the terrace and conservatory for dining.

The weather is still truly amazing and is going to be in the high 80's this week. Long may the sunshine continue and long may we continue to get such fabulous guests returning.

“Perfect location and facilities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We arrived to be greeted by Joy, who was very friendly and informative about the apartment, local restaurants, best car park locations and where to buy good local produce. She also gave us a very useful map of Lyme Regis, with all the shops listed, which we used for the duration of our stay. The apartment was immaculately presented with good quality fixtures and fittings. Everything was clearly labeled with clear instructions on how to use them. Joy left us a breakfast basket with home made muesli, bread and local produce. The fridge was stocked with eggs, milk, juice and butter.
The property is attached to the main house, but gives you the privacy that you need, with your own outdoor sitting area. There is one parking space right outside the front door for an average size car. Mine is quite large and found it a bit of a squeeze, but that was not an issue as there is ample parking on site, which I opted to use, so if you like a good parking space, as I do, you won't be disappointed.
The property is ideally situated near Axminster and Lyme Regis and is ideal for those attending a course or dining at River Cottage HQ. There is even a taxi pick up point right outside the front door, especially for River Cottage, which Joy must have arranged with a local company.
We only stayed for two nights, giving us a taster of the area, but would definitely re- book, as we intend to visit River Cottage HQ next time.

This is is a very professionally run establishment by Joy and her partner, who are clearly very passionate about giving a good experience to their guests. We didn't need to bother Joy whilst we were there, as there was everything we needed and more, but I get the impression that nothing would have been too much trouble if requested. Thanks for a great stay at Acorns...

Thank you so much for your review which just so lovely and more than I could have ever wished to read about our Apartment.

I'm just so glad the weather was fantastic and you were able to make use of two extra comfortable sun chairs on the Terrace which I purchased for this incredible weather.

Please be assured I thoroughly enjoy preparing Acorns for our visitors - it gives me great pleasure when guests have a happy holiday.

Delighted our guests had a relaxing break and found Acorns Apartment to be well equipped.

I have recently added 2 adjustable sun chairs for the terrace here at Acorns and our sister property, The Retreat Cottage, also for couples for short breaks with a breakfast basket and also listed here on the Holiday Lettings Directory.

Such glorious weather still - 20 degrees today and 22 degrees promised for tomorrow. It's been a wonderful June and splendid start to July. Long may it continue.

We are currently getting ready for Life Boat Week in Lyme Regis starting on the 19th when the Red Arrows fly past on Thursday 24th July. A cream tea to accompany watching the display is a must!

Thank you reviewers for for your kind words.

Thank you for these lovely words about our Acorns Apartment for Couples.

We accept a one night stay between bookings which will show up on our live on line booking system on our home web site - see link on this advert and I'm just so glad it fitted in with these guests plans.

Hope to see you both again when you next visit England's only natural World Heritage Site, The Jurassic Coast, here on our doorstep in Lyme Regis. And for more hot weather as you enjoyed too!

Best wishes,

Joy

“Such a Comfortable and Spacious Apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This was our second visit to Hedgehog Corner and hopefully will not be our last.
What can I say to add the well-deserved praises of the other reviewers? I loved the wonderfully comfy bed that ensured a good nights sleep, I loved having breakfast watching a young rabbit doing the same in the garden, I loved the big squashy settee in the spacious conservatory, which was perfect for relaxing after a busy day enjoying the surrounding countryside and I appreciated the extra gluten-free goodies in the breakfast basket. All in all a lovely break, we really couldn't have wished for more.

“A brilliant base for a weekend exploring Dorset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Just came back from a fantastic weekend at Hedgehog Corner staying at the 'Acorns' apartment. Joy was a whirlwind of enthusiasm and information from the start and was there to greet us the moment we arrived - and was happy to point out all the best places to eat and drink (which we later found out were great tips). I couldn't believe the place - so clean and modern but homely. Information was cleverly labelled around the pad, the bed was comfy, the shower really amazing (bath also looked good although didn't try out) and the kitchen really well designed. The conservatory was relaxing with a great view, and a lovely terrace. Joy explained that she had won lots of awards, including a green tourism award and it certainly shows - the grounds were alive with wildlife and everything was so well thought out. I really didn't want to leave, could have even happily lived there and would love to come back!
