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 is contactable at Reception and is a true local and font of information.

"Immaculate accomodation"

When we arrived we were welcomed by Joy who gave us a tour of the property. The accommodation was beautifully presented and immaculately clean, with every home from home essential you could imagine. The attention to detail was second to none, which made the stay more enjoyable. This is one of the best short stays that we have had since exploring Dorset. Thank you for making our trip so memorable. Ian & Sue Jolley

It was a pleasure to have such guests visit. Delighted the weather was kind for your visit and I look forward to welcoming you both again! Happy days! Joy

"Lovely holiday in wonderful cottage"

Acorns is a wonderful place to stay with excellent facilities provided by hostess Joy who was so helpful from the moment we booked until we left.The Hot Tub recently installed was great to return to after long coastal walks to rest weary limbs and relax just bliss. Cannot wait to return!!!

I am delighted that you found the Hot Tub relaxing after a day exploring our wonderful area here on the Jurassic Coast set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Thank you for taking the time to write such lovely lines about Acorns. Hope to see you again one day. Joy

"Idyllic retreat"

We had an absolutely amazing stay at the Acorns. The location was perfect with Lyme Regis beach just 10 mins away. Hedgehog corner is a very pretty cottage with an absolutely lovely garden. Acorns itself is very spacious with a big conservatory and 2 separate patios. Joy was one of the most generous hosts I have come across. She was very kind and had paid lot of attention to every detail to ensure that we were comfortable. The breakfast basket was sumptuous with lots of absolutely tasty local goodies. Last but not the least, the hot tub was an absolute icing on the cake. With special lighting and extra jets, it was very relaxing after a busy day of sightseeing. All in all, a perfect stay and highly recommended.

Thank you for our first review of Acorns Garden Apartment with it's Hot Tub, the new arrival! I am most grateful for you taking the time to tell me and other readers how much you enjoyed Acorns Garden Apartment and I know you particularly enjoyed the large Conservatory. I hope to meet you both again. Joy

"Couldn't ask for more"

We really couldn't find anything to fault. Joy, the owner, seems to have thought of everything. All beautifully appointed and the hot tub was the perfect finishing touch All we can say is that we're looking for an excuse to go back.

Thank you so much for mentioning how much you enjoyed our new facility, The Cedar Hot Tub! It's been quite an event for me having two Hot Tubs recently arrive here. There is one for each of our accommodations for couples - so our guests may enjoy a relaxing time in their own Hot Tub in private seclusion, not overlooked and with a view of bluebells in the copse. I'm just so glad you enjoyed your stay - it was a pleasure having you visit - so please hurry back! Joy

Thank you to some of our first guests who have enjoyed our new facility, the Private Hot Tub, not overlooked, with one at each of our two properties here for couples - with guests enjoying them in all weathers. Delighted these guests enjoyed their break away. Hope to see you again! Joy

"A Treasure on the Jurassic Coast"

What a pleasure it was to stay at Hedgehog Corner. It is rare to find such an organised place, with every need anticipated. All equipment is top class, all very clean, excellent food and beverages provided. Bread is made on premises, fine quality coffee (brewed or instant), and homemade muesli. There were 3 televisions! When we arrived, I thought the owner very competent; by the time we left I thought she could run an army.

Thank you so much to our visitors from Australia! Knowing the exceptionally high standards of accommodation in Australia I feel duly complimented, so thank you. And hope to see you on a return visit! Joy

"Relaxing getaway in a gorgeous cottage"

Joy was an absolutely amazing host- she was extremely warm, welcoming and friendly. The amenities in this cottage were beautiful and seemed brand new. She had even made up a delicious breakfast basket with lots of homemade goodies. My boyfriend and I not only enjoyed the cottage, but it was located within a 5 minute drive to Lyme Regis which was lovely. It was such a relaxing getaway, and we would love to come back, especially once the hot tube gets installed (from 17th May)!

Thank you so much for letting me know you enjoyed your visit. I am pleased to report the Hot Tubs are now installed and ready for our guests. I am thrilled with their pretty LED lights which are amazing at night - I very much hope you will both be back to try one of the totally private tubs out! Joy

"What a little gem"

Beautiful setting, well stocked retreat with all the mod cons you could need. The Breakfast basket was lovely and the little extras such as Easter eggs & hot-cross buns were a lovely surprise. Joy certainly thinks of everything...... We had a fantastic time and certainly will be back

I really do appreciate our guests being kind enough to write a review of Acorns Garden Apartment and it is particularly cheering to read such a happy review. The weather today is brilliant sunshine and blue skies - Lyme Regis is looking lovely and we look forward to welcoming you again. Thank you for having chosen Acorns for your Easter break. Joy

"Cosy and relaxing"

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. Joy

"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. Joy
