“Great location, great facilities, great welcome - highly recommended 4*”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2016

Easy to find and in a great location, I can highly recommend Acorns Garden Apartment at Hedgehog Corner if you;re looking for a luxurious, relaxing place to stay. Joy's welcome is warm and sincere and she takes great care to ensure that you feel comfortable. Everything was spotlessly clean - especially the hot tub which was always crystal clear. The food at the local pub is great - the decor not so good (but then that's just my opinion!) We will definitely return as some point in the near future

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your great review - it's very good of you to mention the crystal clear Hot Tub water - vitally important for all our guests to know this and that I take exceptional care with each property's own personal and private Hot Tub. Hope to see you both again! Joy

“A perfect hideaway !”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2016

Acorns is a warm cosy comfortable place to stay with a touch of luxury, Joy has covered every thing! Plenty of information , a text to say Acorns was ready early, a warm greeting and shown where every thing is and how it all works, the hot tub an added bonus! A perfect location for River Cottage HQ, Lyme Regis and many other attractive places to visit. The Hunters Lodge pub serves delicious food, booking recommend. We will return!

Owner's reply: I am delighted our recent guests enjoyed their stay in Acorns Garden Apartment with it's own private Hot Tub and Breakfast Basket with plenty for the duration of your stay however long or short! On occasion if I get your property ready before 3pm I will text you to let you know, so please keep your mobile handy on your day of arrival. It was a pleasure to have you stay and thank you for leaving Acorns so tidy after your visit. Hope to see you again one day! Joy

“Beautifully relaxing stay”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2016

We stayed in Acorns at Hedgehog Corner over the New Year period to celebrate New Year's Eve at close by River Cottage HQ, my husband's birthday and our second wedding anniversary. We were met and introduced to our accommodation by the gregarious and welcoming Joy before being left to enjoy the thoroughly high spec apartment. Of course the highlights were the breakfast basket, including homemade bread and muesli made by our host Joy, and the decadent hot tub! Thoughtful touches throughout make this a really special place to stay. Would definitely recommend and choose to visit again.

Owner's reply: Delighted our guests enjoyed such a triple set of celebratory occasions here at Acorns Garden Apartment with Hot Tub and Breakfast Basket. A night time dip in the Hot Tub illuminated by the lights inside is certainly something to be enjoyed - star gazing can sometimes be an added extra on a clear night. Thank you for choosing my accommodation and it's great to read your comments. Joy

“Can't get better”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2015

This is truly the best accommodation we have stayed at, including b & b and hotels. We arrived early after a long journey and Joy had the property ready for us to start our 10 night stay. Joy greeted us with a smile and showed us around this beautiful and secluded accommodation. I must say she has thought of everything that u may need on your holiday. The breakfast basket was marvellous and filled with lots of goodies. Being there 10 nights gave us the opportunity to try most of what was on offer from the slipper bath, walk in shower, oven etc etc. We also used the washer/dryer and even got the hang of it after a few goes. There are 3 t.v which all work . The room sizes and just perfect and the conservatory very large and bright. We used the tub 8 out of the 10 nights we were there and throughly enjoyed it. When the lights are out and the sky is clear u can see all of the stars. We even seen some shooting stars. (Made a few wishes) Nothing was too much trouble for Joy if u needed, but she was never intrusive, we were left to our own devises but she was always there if u had any questions. There is loads of information on what and where to go and the wifi worked great. We will definitely be back. Thanks Joy x

Owner's reply: Thank you for your delightful review pointing out that the Hot Tub is great for watching stars at night - and yes I'm sure you did see shooting stars - we are so lucky with no light pollution around here. See you again soon! Many thanks for choosing to stay in Acorns Garden Apartment with Breakfast Basket and Hot Tub. Joy

“Amazing, peaceful, relaxing, everything you could possibly need all wrapped up in a beautiful, romantic retreat”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2015

Joy was fabulous from start to finish. She was very accommodating with my wishes to surprise my partner for our anniversary by making it extra special. We had email communication over several weeks before our trip to make sure everything would be perfect... which is was more than! The property was gorgeous and in a fabulous setting, especially with the hot tub hidden to the side of the property. We were able to relax with a glass of champagne in the hot tub looking up at the stars thanks to Joy's great planning of having special acrylic glasses that are shatter proof... she really has thought of everything.... from yellow hiviz vests to walk to the pub, to picnic hampers to all sorts! It was near to Lyme Regis which was great for us to easily go for dinner in the evening and was easy to find ... in fact we had spent several days, before our stay at Acorns, travelling around the south coast and Lyme Regis and had spotted the sign on our way in so we knew exactly where to go! Helpful Tip - It is also worth, if trip advisor etc says this accommodation is free for one night but doesn't let you book, going straight to Joy's website as these other sites tend to not let you book for any less than 2 or 3 nights. Go and stay for yourselves and see how tranquil this place is :)

Owner's reply: Thank you for your generous words. I am delighted it all went so well for such a special anniversary. Yes, this guest is absolutely correct, if there are any one nights available between bookings they are bookable on my home web site where you can also see a film of the Hot Tub and property and other sister property with same facilities including a private Hot Tub too. Thank you for being such special guests and hope to see you again one day soon! Joy

“Absolutely amazing!”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2015

Joy was there with a friendly and warm welcome, she gave us a detailed tour of the cottage. It was spotless and had everything it stated on the advert. Unlike other places I have visited, everything was labelled i.e how the shower works, where the hair dryer is etc, makes life sooo much more easier and just what you need when you are there to relax! The various outside lights with sensors make life much more easier too and the hot tub is fab! It was perfect, couldn't have asked for a better place or better host! Would visit again.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for giving of your time to write a review about Acorns Garden Apartment with Hot Tub. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, had reasonable weather and enjoyed the tub and it's mood lighting in the evenings. It throws out some good colours at night! Best wishes and hope to see you both again. Joy

“superb accomodation”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2015

Acorns is wonderful for a short break and has everything you need for your stay. The apartment has plenty of space, a large conservatory, fantastic kitchen and bathroom and the hot tub is just great for relaxing and taking in the surrounding garden. Joy the owner is very welcoming and provides all the information you need and also a wonderful breakfast hamper with milk and eggs and even a home baked loaf. This was our second visit to Joys properties and on both occasions the stay was brilliant .

Owner's reply: And it was brilliant welcoming you back again! Here's to your next visit! Joy

“Immaculate accomodation”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2015

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

Owner's reply: 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”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2015

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!!!

Owner's reply: 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”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2015

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.

Owner's reply: 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
