“They say perfect doesn’t exist..!”
Stay at Hedgehog Corner and you will find it!! The hot tub sold it to me. Well worth a visit, you will not be dissapointed!
Owner's reply: Delighted you enjoyed the hot tub! It was a pleasure to have you stay. Thank you for choosing The Retreat. Joy
“Amazing retreat, fantastic host and great location”
We spent two nights here when visiting River Cottage, the location couldn't be better with only a 5 minute drive to River Cottage HQ. Joy is a superb and welcoming host, the Retreat is beautifully maintained, extremely homely and it's tucked away location is private and quiet. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to use the hot tub but it looked absolutely fantastic perfect for a romantic evening. I cannot recommend this property highly enough.
Owner's reply: Wow thank you! Please visit again and stay a little bit longer to do some tubbing! I am so grateful for your kind words. Joy
We stayed with Joy when she was running her B&B a few years ago and although she is now letting apartments instead of doing B&B, we knew we could expect the same great service and quality. We were certainly not disappointed! The Retreat is all you could possibly want/expect and more. It is spotless, spacious, has a fully equipped kitchen with open plan living room, and separate bedroom. Joy leaves a fantastic breakfast basket for your stay which includes her amazing home made bread - not to be missed! The hot tub is absolutely lovely.... the weather was chilly, misty and softly raining but we ran to the hot tub and thoroughly enjoyed soaking away the chills! It is literally right outside of the door and completely secluded. The Retreat at Hedgehog Corner is only a few minutes drive away from Lyme Regis town centre, and perfect for visits to River Cottage. Our friends came with us and stayed in Acorns which they loved. All in all - thoroughly recommended!
Owner's reply: Thank you for such a fabulous review. It's wonderful that some of our past guests are revisiting - especially now there are hot tubs for each of the properties here at Hedgehog Corner. Hot Tubs are great fun - whatever the weather as our guests found. See you soon! Joy
Absolutely amazing stay from start to finish. The setting of the Retreat was stunning with the inside of the accommodation being just as beautiful. Joy made us feel very welcome and there were plenty of added touches during our stay, including the breakfast basket! The hot tub was a highlight of the trip and brightened up our winter get away. Would highly recommend this property and we can't wait to return.
Owner's reply: Thank you indeed for your kind words about your stay here in The Retreat. I'm so glad you enjoyed the rural setting - with the Hot Tub looking out over the fields with the occasional deer and bunny to be seen! Hot Tubs are perfect for the colder weather - first thing in the morning is a great way to kick start the day. I very much hope to see you again! Joy
“We couldn't have asked for anything better.”
My husband was attending a cookery course at River Cottage, The Retreat was ideally situated, not even a 5 minute drive away. The Retreat was wonderful, warm and welcoming after a 3 hour drive, with everything we needed and more ! The icing on the cake was the hot tub. Thank You Joy
Owner's reply: Delighted to hear your cookery course at River Cottage tied in nicely with your stay here. Also so pleased you enjoyed your own personal Hot Tub for a spot of star gazing. Hope to see you again soon, Joy
Make good use of the hot tub, it is very relaxing! Go to Lyme Regis and have a pork sandwich in the "Whole Hog" it will be the best pork sandwich you have ever had!
Owner's reply: Delighted our guests enjoyed the Hot Tub and local fabulous roast sandwich shop in nearby Lyme Regis - I have tasted one myself and they are delicious! Just on the main street at the bottom of the town near the clock car park! Check it out! Hope to see you next year! Joy
Our stay was simply wonderful; thank you Joy. We felt very special and thoroughly pampered. My highlight was floating in the hot tub at night with the lights and jets switched off, staring at the Milky Way for hours. My partner enjoyed the home-made bread and muesli, as well as all the locally-sourced produce that greeted us on arrival. We tried to think of something we needed that had not been provided - and failed. Very highly recommended but not when we want to return (obviously). Enjoy!
Owner's reply: Smashing! Delighted you too enjoyed the star gazing from your private, personal and secluded Hot Tub late at night. This has proved to be a real enhancement to our guests stay! See you again! Joy
Me and my partner stayed in this cottage for 2 nights and I honestly can't find the words to explain how perfect it was. It took us a while to get to the cottage due to traffic and weather conditions but when we arrived we were greeted by a lovely, welcoming smile from Joy the wonder who proceeded to show us around the cottage... Giving us information on the use of the hot tub, heating, and electrical appliances. This lady has literally thought of everything you could possibly need/want during your stay. The cottage is spacious and clean but very cosy and the hot tub is a perfect added bonus, so relaxing no matter the weather conditions. The only fault is that we couldn't stay longer, neither of us wanted to leave! Would love to stay again.
Owner's reply: Wow! Really pleased our guests enjoyed their stay and I hope they will visit again. See you in 2016 Joy
“Fabulous retreat that helps you relax in comfort”
We stayed here because of the reviews and i must say we was not disappointed, the place is lovely and clean with everything you need and more to make Your stay comfortable. The introduction of a hot tub is a master stroke by Joyce we loved it so relaxing especially at night when you put the multicolour lighting on. Joyce is a lovely lady who goes out of her way to help make your stay an enjoyable one, we will definatly be going back.
Owner's reply: Delighted our guests enjoyed the multi coloured lighting selection in the Hot Tub! Several guests enjoyed 'star gazing' too with shooting stars seen. Hope to see you again Joy
“5 Star accommodation”
What can we say about Hedgehog Corner .... other than .... fantastic , classy , peaceful , idyllic and secluded . Joy ( who owns Hedgehog Corner ) , you have been named well !! It was a total joy to have met you , an amazing , friendly , lovely lady . You have so obviously put a lot of thought , time and money into Hedgehog Corner . The high spec of absolutely everything in The Retreat didn't go amiss . We have stayed at many places but we can honestly say this was one of the very best . We will return and we most definitely would recommend your beautiful little haven to everyone , love Mark and Julie , Hertfordshire .
Owner's reply: Thank you for giving me such a great start to my day! Your words sum up what every accommodation provider hopes their guests will think after their holiday. I did appreciate your thoughtfulness with the taxi driver it was very kind indeed. Hope to see you both again and for longer next time! Joy
