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.

"Cosy and relaxing"

Ideal for short break or holiday, close to River Cottage and the Jurassic Coast.
The breakfast basket was superb every taste catered for.

Thank you for your time in writing such lovely lines about our Acorns Apartment.

I am very grateful to you for choosing to stay here and delighted you enjoyed your visit.

"WIsh I could have stayed longer"

I booked up this accomodation principally as my wife and I were attending a 50th birthday w/e in Lyme Regis and we wanted to be able to dip in and out of various activities which were laid on that w/e.
The Acorns appealed as it was circa 3 miles out of town and was a high standard of accomodation. Unfortunately we only spend a minimal amount of time enjoying the place as we ended up participating in a few more events to do with the birthday bash than we expected!

We loved the home baked bread and other goodies in the welcome hamper upon arrival.

The fit and finish of The Acorns was first class and super clean & warm + the open broadband was appreciated.

We would very much like to go back just to relax next time

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review - especially in the light of your "packed" stay this last weekend.

I am glad you felt comfortable in Acorns Apartment and that it suited your needs being so close to Lyme Regis.

Thank you for being such delightful and cheery guests.

"Three nights relaxing break"

The accommodation is just perfect and the owner very friendly and helpful. We arrived a bit late and our Waitrose delivery was early and Joy sorted it all out for us. There are so many little touches … More

Thank you so much for this delightful review.

I am so glad you found our close proximity to River Cottage HQ helpful - as you say a taxi from here is only £15 return which is very reasonable and we encourage guests to book taxis in advance to avoid disappointment.

So glad your birthday went off well.

Best wishes and many thanks!

"Beautiful cottage, in a lovely location. Perfect for River Cottage too."

My boyfriend and I booked to go to River Cottage and stayed at Acorns Cottage, very conveniently located nearby. The cottage was beautiful and very spacious for two people. The fireplace gave the cottage a very cosy feel in the evenings, and it was lovely to be able to enjoy the breakfast basket goodies in the conservatory in the mornings. Joy was very attentive, giving us a guided tour of the cottage on arrival before leaving us to enjoy the tranquillity of the area for the rest of our stay. Overall the cottage exceeded our expectations and provided the perfect setting for a relaxing anniversary weekend. 10/10 - we would love to return!

So pleased Acorns Apartment was enjoyed by you both. It was wonderful you could see the rabbits bouncing about from the Conservatory. Some guests have seen deer in the next door field - we even had two deer walk up our drive and peer in the windows once when two regular visitors from Australia were here.

The fire is very warming in winter and with two sources of heat in the Apartment our guests are kept very toasty!

Hope to see you again in Acorns Apartment again one day!

"Could not fault, wonderful getaway!!!"

We stayed at Acorns in January as a very last minute trip away for our birthdays. I say last minute, we literally booked the night before leaving and got a response the same night saying all was confi… More

Thank you so much for your review.

I am delighted that your birthday break went so well!

Very much hope to see you again in the future.

"Joy had thought of everything."

We enjoyed a wonderful 2 night stay at Acorns at the end of October, celebrating my birthday. Joy warmly welcomed us and showed us around the generous, beautifully appointed and cosy warm accommodation; she had thought of everything we could possibly need. We appreciated all the contents of breakfast basket, which set us up well for a bracing 5 mile circular walk around the edge of Lyme Regis, as recommended in one of the guide books in the drawer. We managed to book supper at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Canteen in Axbridge for our second evening and our meal certainly lived up to expectations and was delicious.
Joy kindly and promptly posted back to me some possessions I had inadvertently left behind and without charge. All in all a great place to stay, where they definitely "go the extra mile" and we would love to return to sample some more of the delights of Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast.

Thank you so much for such generous comments about Acorns and the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coastal area. River Cottage is a must visit dining stop and I am so glad you fitted a meal in!

Hope to see you both again one day.

"Fantastic MiniMoon!"

We stayed at Hedgehog Cottage in the Acorns self-catering apartment as our mini-moon after getting married a few days earlier. Joy was very helpful in welcoming us and the accommodation was of a really high standard. We would recommend it to anyone on a weekend/ long weekend away as a mini moon or anniversary. It was completely perfect!

This is fantastic news - especially when we have the honour of welcoming a newly married couple on their first Mr & Mrs minimoon straight after the wedding before the main honeymoon later on.

Just delighted this was the perfect pit stop and I know you enjoyed such great outings to River Cottage and The Hix Oyster and Fish House all nearby.

I hope to welcome you again one day.

"Fantastic place to stay"

Acorns at Hedgehog Corner was a fantastic place to stay. The apartment and amenities were superb, and Joy has thought of everything you may need during your stay, and more. The location is great whether you are planning on staying local or venturing further afield, as we did, visiting Dorset, Devon and Somerset. It is only a few minutes drive to River Cottage HQ and 10 minutes drive to Lyme Regis seafront.
Thank you for your warm welcome, Joy and of course, your understanding about the mishap with the thermostat cover.
We will definitely be back.

Thank you for your lovely words and I'm glad you enjoyed your visit.

You were great guests! Hope to see you again!

"Fantastic accommodation"

Had a fantastic weekend break. Accommodation spotless and Joy provided us with walking suggestions which we undertook over the weekend. Joy made us feel at home as soon as we had arrived and a special mention regarding the breakfast basket which was a great idea and set us up nicely for the day.
The weather helped make it a special weekend so thank you again Joy for the warm welcome, lovely accommodation and weather (well 2 out of 3 Joy, not sure you can influence the weather as well....).


Thank you for taking the time to write such lovely lines.

The weather this September was fantastic and it's still holding dry here at the start of October.

I am so pleased our guests enjoyed the breakfast basket and refreshments provided for every stay - ample for the duration of how ever long you visit.

Many thanks.
