The perfect place to stay for visiting River Cottage or Lyme Regis.

Minutes from the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis and close to the South West Coastal Path.

Set in An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty here on the Devon Dorset border in the middle of the Jurassic World Heritage Coast which stretches for 95 miles recording 180 million years in time.

"Acorns" apartment at Hedgehog Corner is just a 5 minute drive to Lyme Regis an historic seaside town famous for its fossils with a sandy beach as well. Excellent walking inland and along the Coastal Path.

To the west are the seaside towns of Seaton, Beer, Branscombe, Exmouth & Sidmouth and travelling to the east along the South Dorset coast we have the nearby Chesil Beach, Abbotsbury, Portland with its new Olympic Marina and Weymouth. Inland Exmoor and Dartmoor can be visited in a day trip. For those who enjoy visiting National Trust locations and castles there is nearby Montecute Hous, Forde Abbey, Sherborne and Powderham Castles.

Lyme Regis

Lots to see and do. The perfect place to stay for visiting River Cottage or Lyme Regis.

On our doorstep is the sea side town of Lyme Regis is famous for fossil hunting. Experts take out fossil hunting walks from Lyme Regis and nearby Charmouth. Pretty beach huts on the historic Monmouth Beach at Lyme and an area of sandy beach by the historic Cobb. You can while away the hours in the old town of Lyme with its Mill and enchanting back streets full of fascinating shops from the Micro Brewery and Cheesemonger to the art Galleries. Lyme Regis is the perfect place for a family holiday. The area is a foodies paradise with Mark Hix's Oyster and Fish House also in Lyme Regis and just 3 minutes drive away and TV chef Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's River Cottage for meals and events is just 3 minutes drive from Goodlands. At nearby Burton Bradstock a glorious beach with well known The Hive Beach Cafe.

Lots to see and do for children several nearby seaside towns, the Dinosaur Museum, Beer Caves, Pecorama, Cricket St. Thomas Wildlife Park, Sidmouth Donkey Sanctury and Seaton Tram are just an example of the nearby local attractions. Plenty of holiday information at the property. Joy, your Host who greets you personally on arrival, is a true local and font of information.

A congenial climate all year round and a great place for visiting with plenty to see and do all year around.

"A true delight as always - fantastic. You can't go wrong!"

This is our 3rd time staying at hedgehog corner, but the 1st staying in the new Acorns apartment. I was a little concerned on booking that we would no longer get to enjoy Joy's lovely breakfasts … More

Thank you so much for such a stunning review of our new Acorns Apartment.

I am so glad that our guests had such good service from the local taxi man Terry - who gives personal service and waits for guests should the meal take a bit longer than expected. Terry takes care of you and his number is on our web site.

I am particularly pleased that the return fare was reasonable - we are one of the nearest accommodations to River Cottage HQ.

Delighted that our return guests enjoyed their stay - we certainly had couple of laughs together!

Here's to your next visit!

"Relaxing retreat with some many extra touches you wont want to leave!"

Fantastic - look forward to seeing you again - and of course if DO decide to bring the children we have Goodlands along the road a huge three bedroom bungalow with 6 acres of fields which is senior and child friendly - bring the whole family!

It was lovely to meet you and so glad you enjoyed your meal and course at nearby River Cottage that is literally within walking distance from us here.

We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful accommodation. The location is ideal for Lyme Regis but especially close for River Cottage. Everything was prepared and presented superbly. The furnishings an… More

Thank you so much for writing a line about our new accommodation Acorns Apartment here at Hedgehog Corner.

I'm so glad you found us convenient for River Cottage being just 1.6 miles away - only 33 minutes to walk in good weather! Still, I gather from our chat when you departed that you enjoyed being in the warmth of the conservatory in the early evening catching up with work using our wi fi.

Do come again - there is so much happening here in summer - Carnivals, Fetes, Regattas, Walking Tours, Fossil Hunting, Music Festivals - River Cottage Food Fairs - it's all happening!

"Home from home"

The Acorns is clean, cosy and very tastefully furnished set in the most peaceful of settings and the bed one of the most comfortable I have slept in. All home comforts are offered with delightfully fluffy towels, bathrobes, slippers and toiletries provided.
Joy and Gareth are the most welcoming of hosts who went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible offering excellent advice and recommendations of the local area.
The breakfast made with local produce was delicious, a real treat. I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay in this home from home.

Thank you - delighted that my home made and locally sourced produce in the Breakfast Basket went down so well!

I am pleased that our Breakfast Basket can be as much or as little as you require before setting off for River Cottage where you will be surrounded by food in a foodie paradise!

Hope to see you again!

Thank you for your kind words about our new accommodation Acorns.

We decided to take a short break to Lyme Regis and visit the famous River Cottage as part of our trip. We were absolutely delighted with this gorgeous and huge apartment. There is also a conservatory… More

The first review for Acorns - and how thrilled I am that this couple enjoyed their visit!

Lyme Regis is special at any time of year - the Christmas Lights really are fantastic and watching the sea launch itself against the Cobb Wall is a sight to behold!

Lovely and snug in Acorns though - and so glad the feature fire was enjoyed.

Best wishes and hope you visit us again,
