As it says a romantic hide away with all the essentials you need to unwind, turn on the music pop the cork on the champagne and jump in the hot tub already pre prepared for your arrival and relax with the stunning views, then when it gets a bit cooler jump in the sauna, I would recommend this for anyone...

A break from the kids? This place is for couples who need some time together. Super cottages with everything you could ask for: hot tub, sauna, sky tv, wood burning stove, four poster bed, double showers, double bath and more.

Had a wonderful two night stay at the honeymooners with my beautiful wife. The purpose of booking this instead of any other break was to be able to get away from the distractions of holidays (kids, shopping malls, crowded beaches, busy restaurants, oh and did I mention kids!?). We got exactly what we wanted. Arrived about an hour after scheduled... More

We stayed in the Honeymooners for 3 nights over our anniversary last November. It was a fantastic getaway for a few nights. Barring an initial visit on arrival (that we missed due to the time we arrived), and a daily check of the hot tub (early enough that we never saw anyone), you are left completely to your own devices,...

Just back from a two night stay at the honeymooners and feel like we've been away for a week. Amazing views, peace and quiet and luxury. The only thing we needed to worry about was whether to go into the hot tub or sauna or to light a roaring fire in the double sided log burner. The spa room was... More

Just returned home from a two night stay here at the Romantics and I am already planning our return! From candle lit dinners to walks around the countryside, this place is a haven of peace and quiet. We were not disturbed the entire time once we were greeted very politely and with a loaf of freshly baked bread which was... More

We have been meaning to get back and stay here as it's been a few years since our last visit and as expected it didn't disappoint. We were in the Old Romantics this time and it was every bit as lovely as the Lovers Hideaway which was our home on our last visit. The cottage is very high spec and... More

We have just returned from our second visit to the Hideaway Experience. The peace of this idyllic rural retreat makes it the most wonderful way to "get away from it all" and relax in privacy. The cottages are equipped with the highest standards of luxury in furnishings and fittings and designed with many extra details to enhance comfort: fresh homemade... More
