Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Perfect getaway!
We have just returned from the most relaxing break at "Acorns". What a gem! Joy is a great host with the reassurance of knowing she is nearby should you need her, with lots of little touches throughout the property to make it all the more comfortable. We were lucky enough to hear Owls and Woodpeckers from the hot tub, and see wild deer in the field at the back - which really made our weekend. We will be looking to book again for next years break!

Hedgehog Corner
A wonderful weekend spent in this excellent self catering accommodation a short distance from Lyme Regis. A very clean and comfortable apartment with the added bonus of a fabulous hot tub. Joy has thought of everything including flip flops, robes and slippers. We will totally recommend this to our friends and family.

The Acorns with Hot Tub 10/10
Just returned from a 2 night stay at The Acorns Hedgehog Corner. Wonderful accommodation with plenty of room and spotless interior. The Hot Tub is a lovely addition very relaxing. Joy (the owner) is so friendly and helpful and to top it all Joy has thought of everything for your stay such lovely touches which make you feel so welcome. Joy is also very knowledgeable and informative of the area. We enjoyed our stay so much we will definitely return in the future. The Hunters Lodge Inn just up the road is a must for eating out, delicious food. Joy does supply a torch and hi vis jackets if you wish to walk to the pub as road has no footpaths and vehicles do speed. We decided to take the car. There are taxis also.

Wonderful weekend of rest and relaxation
We adored staying at Hedgehog Corner. The booking had been rescheduled due to COVID and was handled with the utmost professionalism. Joy has literally thought of everything and was on hand to get us settled into this delightful and modern cottage. Having the hot tub available day and night was wonderful and allowed me and my fiancé to get some much needed chill time. Lots to see and do in the local area and some fantastic restaurants that we were able to sample despite restrictions.. Highly recommend for couples and would love to come back

A wonderful place to stay in Lyme Regis
We booked this a year ago to spend our Ruby Wedding Anniversary but had to wait 12 months due to Covid. Well it was definitely worth the wait, Joy is a super host and welcomed us on arrival. The apartment is spacious and has a large conservatory, it is very well appointed and spotlessly clean from top to bottom. The hot tub is great, we sat in the tub sipping Champagne one evening and it was a lovely clear night and the stars were out. We would highly recommend Hedgehog corner and I am sure we will be back.

Thank you very much indeed for taking the time to write such a nice line. Not many guests do reviews these days, even though we are welcoming guests all the time here in both properties each with a hot tub. I am therefore particularly grateful for a review to reassure future readers that hot tubs are great fun year round and more so in colder months! Thank you for staying and I look forward to seeing you again one day! Joy

Romantic weekend away.
Gorgeous weekend away at Hedgehog Corner near Lyme Regis to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Joy the owner was such a welcoming lovely lovely lady. Everything was immaculately clean. We had all we needed for a romantic stay away plus more. The hot tub and privacy was the perfect way to end the day. Lyme Regis is barely 10 mins drive away and the micro climate down there was great. Definitely going back next year.

Amazing place - a must stay!
Perfect location being so close to Lyme Regis. The apartment itself is amazing - very spacious, finished to a high standard and of course the wonderful hot tub! We were made to feel so welcome and the lightbox with our names gave it that extra special touch. Very reasonably priced. Couldn't recommend it enough!
