Shower room

General

  • Peaceful adults-only tent site, the nearest to River Cottage HQ
  • Under 10 minutes' drive from Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast
  • Hot showers, guest kitchen, fridge freezers and fast wifi

Burrow away at this popular but peaceful place for adults-only stays near the world-famed Jurassic Coast: Hedgehog Corner Exclusive Camping is in scenic and quiet countryside under 10 minutes’ drive from Lyme Regis. Foodies can rejoice too, as this is the closest Dorset site to River Cottage HQ, just over two miles away.

The site is firmly non-commercialised for solo travellers and couples only – there’s no clubhouse, bar or noisy entertainment – in a peaceful, rural and relaxed setting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty overlooking a wooded valley near the coast. Pitches are for tents only, in flat areas and cutaways set around a spacious field with parking either alongside or in the tarred car park. Each pitch comes with its own picnic bench.

The excellent amenities include clean showers/wetrooms with lots of hot water, heaters, liquid soap and soft toilet roll; the use of fridge freezers, washing-up facilities and drinking water taps are all included in the price. There's also free fast wifi across the site. Rubbish bins and a recycling box are provided: please bag up your rubbish.

Guests are asked to bring proper shoes, a torch and a reflective jacket, as there are no tarred paths on the field and no pavement between the site and River Cottage, the bus stop and the local pub. (The kitchen, shower and wetrooms are in a well-lit tarred area.)

Visitor information along with taxi numbers are in the kitchen; a post office with small shop is within walking distance.

One of the best campsites I have stayed at. 08/24/2018

    Our stay at the hedgehog corner, was one of peaceful tranquillity and ease. The site is located on the corner of a rural country road, set back from the road. The campsite owners are both very friendly and welcoming, providing expert local knowledge and recommendation for sights, places to eat and activities along with tips like when and where to park in busy locations like Lyme Regis. The Facilities at the site are well equipped with lit mirrors which have heated demisters; a welcome convenience for shaving or applying make up after a hot shower. The shower themselves are hot and extremely clean. I have never seen such clean showing facilities on the many sites I have been on. The camping field; a lush green expanse that with the only 10 Pitches permitted at one time which leaves ample space between campers. The quiet on this site is incredible, apart from the sounds of bird call it is a place of peace and quiet. The kitchen facilities are fitted with inside and outside sink areas, and fridge freezers for necessaries such as butter, milk and meat along with ice blocks for picnics. In Summary this is probably the most relaxed and well managed site that I have been to in a long while and will be keen to re-book for next year.

Wow, that is probably the best and most comprehensive review I have had in all the years I've hosted campers!

Delighted our campers enjoyed their stay and the newly installed fast wi fi that covers the whole site - to the top of the camp field even! and at the time of writing is included in the tariff, along with the use of a picnic bench, campers showers and fridge freezers. All included.

I hope our happy campers visit again next year and let's hope for another sunny summer with so many happy campers as clearly indicated by this year's reviews.... !! The weather plays a major part to the happiness of our campers and a long dry summer has been enjoyable for us all. Pip Pip!!

Delighted to get 10/10 for wi fi as I have just had faster broadband installed with a special signal to cover the entire camping field! And it's included in the tariff, no extra charge.

See you again next year.

    Quiet atmosphere and Space between other campers!

    Disliked: 

From the manager...

Delighted our campers enjoyed our spacious 10 tent couples only campsite here on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast just minutes from the coast at Lyme Regis.

We don't have any activities or entertainments - no chip van, disco or bar entertainments here - just peace and quiet, a campers kitchen with free use of fridge freezers and campers shower block with lots of hot water, warm air hand driers, soap, soft loo roll and demister swipe lit mirrors.

BUT I have JUST installed fibre optic wi fi at enormous cost all across the camp field which for such a small site is quite a first so everyone can look up the bus time table for the X51 and X31 to Lyme Regis on their smart phone.

The weather is still fantastic and it's been quite a summer.

    We have just returned after almost 2 weeks at Hedgehog Corner and what a fabulous time we have had in this glorious weather. The campsite is lovely never packed always lots of room between pitches and is lovely and peaceful. Great facilities provided lovely clean showers with plenty of hot water and the fridge freezers were a godsend given the hot weather. Joy is as her name suggests she is lovely and friendly and we thorougly enjoyed our morning chats by the shower room. We miss it already and cannot wait to return next year. Thank you Joy we had a wonderful time and the butcher and wife will definitely be back!!

    Peacefulness and tranquility. Suitably friendly, locally knowledgeable and helpful camp site manager.
    Great to have plenty of fridge and freezer space.
    Large pitches.
    Good clean and monitored washroom facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Lacking copies of local bus timetables as an alternative to driving and parking.
    Only having two commonly available sockets to charge modern phones needing their daily power refresh - or more courteous power hungry socket hogging campers!

From the manager...

Thank you for your review.

I usually order this year's new bus time tables but they tend to come mid season as the new timetable comes out at the end of May.

Fortunately high speed wi fi is due on the site in the next couple of weeks (fingers crossed) so campers will be able to look up the bus time tables on their i phones. The bus from the pub to Lyme Regis is the X51 for anyone doing prior research if they know they will use the bus before arriving here at the camp site.

The facility does have 2 spare sockets for phone charging. The building was put up long before mobile phones of course. I did have an extension in the campers kitchen but campers turned off the fridges instead (why?!) causing real problems so I moved it.

The weather has been fantastic for camping. The ground is hard though to future campers should bring a mallet.

Quiet and relaxed site, excellent facilities and location! 07/02/2018

  • Liked: 

    A lovely quiet and relaxed campsite. We camped for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The facilities were excellent and it was great to have the availability of fridge/freezer - more than enough space for everyones food (even when the site is at capacity!).

    There are plenty of level pitches for everyone. And there's ample room for everyone to spread out.

    Owners are polite and ensure guests are well informed about site rules etc.

    10 minute drive into Lyme Regis and the site is very close to a bus stop - an excellent location, there's so much to do!

    Disliked: 

    Sometimes the bathrooms could be crowded, especially at full capacity.

    The owners could make it more obvious that cash payment is required upon arrival, although this is stated in the confirmation email, it was clear that the owners were having issues receiving payments upon arrival. Therefore, we wondered if they could make it even more clear to guests before they arrive (a reminder email or something similar), especially as cash points are fairly far from the site.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review.

We are too small to have a card machine here (only 10 tents) which is why it's cash on arrival and stated on the Pitch Up confirmation and elsewhere on the advert too.

I had hoped Pitch Up made this clear to everyone when booking but it is their web site over which I have no control. However, I'm glad you've mentioned this again as for anyone who does book in and doesn't read their confirmation sheet properly then they can now be reminded to be prepared to pay cash on arrival - the benefit for campers of cash on arrival being that if they have to cancel there are no penalties.

These campers who came unprepared regarding paying the balance for their camping trip should consider themselves fortunate I let them pitch up on arrival and not send them straight off to the cash point. I allowed them to pitch up and come back after their day out the next day with an envelope I provided to make their payment in. Not many camp sites would be so kind I can assure you. They also were able to enjoy bringing a massive tent at no extra cost. I have now put in a tent size restriction of a normal size 6 man tent being the maximum size allowed here from now on.

Yes we did have an irritation with the bathrooms this last week as some campers were truly hogging the showers for up nearly an hour at the same time, each in both shower rooms at a time (fortunately not the spare toilet too). On one occasion and I had to go and knock to invite them to speed up - I have therefore put a cartoon in each shower room to remind campers that others might wish to use the facilities too!!

As much as there is a shower for 5 tents each some campers do hog them. This is of course a camp site and not a hotel so we would ask everyone to be considerate to others using the facilities. It is a good idea for campers to space themselves to use the shower block as yes when full with all 10 tents (phew!) it makes sense to avoid 8.30am if in a hurry when it may well be the popular time.

The weather was absolutely brilliant for these campers stay and everyone seems to be having a fabulous time here.

    Ideal location for exploring both Dorset and East Devon. Hedgehog corner is adult only with no pets or big groups. Perfect for couples wanting relaxation and no hassle. Lovely site, surrounded by trees and very quiet.
    Pitches were laid out well and all level, each provided with wooden picnic table. Clean and well looked after toilets, showers with hot water always available. Kitchen with plenty of fridge and freezer space. Joy the owner was very helpful with plenty of local knowledge. Good value.
    Will definitely be using again.

The Hedgehog Corner team highly recommends a visit to River Cottage HQ at Musbury’s Park Farm: book in for a cookery course or show up for one of the regular events. The River Cottage Kitchen & Deli is in Axminster town centre, five minutes’ drive or 15 minutes’ bus ride away.

Lyme Regis is a must too, for stunning views of Lyme Bay out to the Channel, and the Lyme Regis Museum built on the birthplace site of famed fossil collector and  palaeontologist Mary Anning (if you’ve ever had your tongue twisted by ‘She sells seashells on the sea shore’, this is the lady to whom it refers).

To dig into Jurassic Coast history for yourself, guided fossil tours run from the excellent Dinosaurland Fossil Museum in the town’s Coombe Street.
