To celebrate several years of being together as a couple my hubby and I decided to take ourselves off to Lymn Regis for a Romantic break. We had stayed at Hedgehog Corner the B&B before but this time wnated something a little different so we opted for the Retreat.
We were delighted with the decission it was absolutley perfect. The Retreat is fitted with the best of equipment, all mod cons and comfort, and completely private. The rainfall shower with underfloor heating made me want to stay in the shower far too long, and gave me ideas for my own bathroom redesign (more work for hubby at home).
There is a private parking space for my car which is about 10 steps from the door, although if you ahve an electric car there is also a charging point in the car park to recharge the batteries.
Joy the owner, had provided a hamper of goodies for breakfast, tea, coffee milk etc as well as a fabulous home made loaf.
The pub is within walking distance and the Cobb is only a five minute drive away. We are both foodies and made the most of our stay by eating at Hix's Oyster House and River Cottage HQ. Taxi's to both are very reasonable and details of the local taxi company were provided in the information pack.
There is nothing I can think of that I wanted or needed that had not been taken care of, Joy is a local person and wealth of knowledge.
We will be going back to the Retreat an may even go in the winter and pray to be snowed in so we can not leave!
Thanks for making our anniversary so special.

This well appointed self contained accommodation was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Situated 5 mins from Lyme Regis it is ideal for exploring West Dorset and South Devon. We spent a wonderful weekend here in August and would thoroughly recommend it. Our host, Joy, was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning.

We stayed in The Retreat for 3 nights at the end of July and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a warm welcome from Joy and loved the super modern look of The Retreat, which has all mod cons in every department, great kitchen, ace shower, comfy bed and reclining sofa's!
The location is a few minutes north of Lyme Regis, and a few hundred yards from the main coast road, so perfectly placed to either hit the beach, or go off exploring. We booked a table at Hix and got a taxi in to Lyme Regis which cost us £10 with tip each way, so we could all have a glass of wine or two. We didnt get chance to try River Cottage HQ but I guess that just gives us the perfect excuse to return !
Overall I would say excellent value, excellent accommodation and perfect location - thanks Joy !
We had a three night stay in the separate Retreat cottage and were very impressed. Joy has thought of everything and has not only provided a space that is functional, well-equipped and immaculately clean, but has a bathroom with several nice features such as a heated mirror and rainforest showerhead! To set things off, we were also provided with a free mini-hamper, a private parking space and a peaceful and relaxed setting. If we visit the area again, we are very likely to return!
We were very fortunate to be the first people to stay in the fabulous new cottage at Hedgehog. Joy the owner has created a truly amazing place to stay with every mod con. The fittings and furnishings are both stylish and functional. A beautiful wall mounted fire, lime green accessories in the kitchen, a wonderful, large shower that works as it should, underfloor heating in the bathroom, a very comfortable king-size brass bed and much more. The garden is private and large for a 1 bed cottage. Joy provides a breakfast of locally sourced goodies including eggs, divine bread and a selection of Hedgehog Corner jams and marmelades.
We can recommend this cottage unreservedly - you will be lucky to stay there, as we were. Thank you Joy for your attention to detail and very warm welcome.
