Lovely campsite, great facilities, lots of fridge and freezer space. Each site is nice and big and great to have your own space. The picnic benches for each tent are a great bonus saves you taking a table. An unusual but welcome bonus to have your own barbecue space for each site as well. Only a short distance from the fantastic Hix Oyster & Fish House. Also a great pub located just around the corner.
Another happy few days at Hedgehog with glorious weather. Joy was on top form sharing some of this years stories of fellow campers, both good and amusing.
We love this place, it offers everything we look for in camp site and more! Adults only, good clean showers with plenty of hot water and 3 fridge freezers! So never a problem finding a home for the wine and food. Once you get used to the odd car driving past on the A35 some 400M away there is nothing to disturb the peace and quite of this place. With Lyme Regis and the Jurassic coast only a few minutes away by car, Hedgehog is perfectly located.
Reassuringly expensive and with only 10 pitches available. Keep it to yourself and don't tell anybody how lovely this place is, otherwise we'll never be able to get in! (wink!)
Site is pretty sloping although flatter at the top. There are flat bits that have been cut out but most of these seemed to be a bit rutted due to rabbits digging so we just camped on the sloping bit which was fine. Nice to have a picnic bench for each tent.
Just one shower each for men and ladies but never had to queue. Plenty of hot water, and a plug if you bring your own hair drier.
Campers kitchen with sink and 3 fridge freezers which was great as the weather was very hot.
The owner was rather dramatic when we said we would be using our bikes to get about. She basically said don't bother it's too hilly, it's too busy and you'll be killed! We did bother and it is very hilly which we knew and the road down to Lyme Regis was very busy, but there are plenty of quieter back lanes (still as hilly) but luckily we made it out alive.
Lovely pub about 10 mins walk up the hill (the busy road), but worth the visit as food is lovely.
Pretty expensive site £25 a night for 2 adults although no cost for anything else.
Management response: We actually care about our campers here and it's a shame this reviewer didn't recognise this fact in the first instance rather than make it a point of mockery. Far better, when asked, that I am utterly honest with my description regards cycling around here and keep cycling campers safe, particularly those who are new to the area. Campers are then well prepared if they do decide to bike.
The tariff here reflects the peacefulness with no children, groups, pets, caravans or motor homes.
We have spacious tent only pitches, restricted numbers of solos & couples, easy use of facilities, picnic bench, fridge freezers,clean facilities, lashings of hot water and an owner who is a font of local knowledge being born & brought up here
We stayed at Hedgehog Corner on the first May bank holiday weekend of 2013. The site it lovely, one of the nicest I've experienced.
We did not have a stipulated arrival/departure time which meant we were able to arrive at 10am on the Saturday with no problems. The field for camping is huge for the number of pitches the site is licensed to accommodate, certainly no danger of feeling crowded.
The ladies bathroom facilities consists of one toilet, sink and shower in a combined unit; which is also mirrored for the gentlemen. Alongside this there is one unisex toilet and sink. Owing to the small nature of the site this is sufficient (although there is the inevitable wait for a shower at peak times). The showers had plenty of hot water and were tastefully tiled. They were spotlessly clean whenever I visited. I'd recommend you take some shower shoes.
The owner has gone out of her way to add finishing touches that really makes this site lovely. Simple things such as telling guests where the biggest and cheapest car park is in Lyme Regis is, and proving fridge/freezers free of charge.
Have stayed at hedgehog corner several times and will return as soon as we can. We love the location. It is so convenient for visiting gorgeous Lyme Regis and so many other great places in the area.
We especially love the fact that the owner, Joy, is a real 'foodie' like us. There is a great manual in the kitchen and shower building with handy information such as bus timetables, info on the cheapest local car park and recommended places of interest, but the best of all are all the eating out recommendations made by Joy. We have yet to work our way through the full list but so far all have been spot on.
Having the use of a freezer is great for refreezing ice blocks and also having a fridge means there is room for some bigger bits if necessary. There are two washing up sinks with hot water, one inside and one outside.
The wet rooms are great for those who have smaller tents and need a private WC and shower all in one cosy room, with real doors (unlike a lot of camping facilities where shower curtains stick to you whilst the queue of campers laugh!) There are two wet rooms and one unisex WC with sink and mirror.
Though the site is on a slope, which gives lovely views of an evergreen forest, all the pitches are 'cut out' of the slope so are perfectly flat, and all accommodate a good sized tent. Ours is a 4 berth mid family sized tent, even though there are only two of us. There are also wooden table/bench sets at each pitch which are perfect for spending the evening looking at the beautiful sunsets, then sitting out watching the stars.
A great site if you want peace and quiet in a lovely setting away from noisy children and big groups of loud campers.
