Once we stepped into the honeymooners hideaway we knew that we had picked the right place to spend our honeymoon. The highlight was dipping into the hot tub late at night enjoying a bottle of bubbly. We added a massage to our stay and it relaxed us even more. Top marks the hideaway has everything you could need and the... More

This is the most fantastic place for a couples retreat. There are 3 different cottages to choose from for your luxury break. We chose the Romantic Cottage, this is a traditional old style cottage with a 5 star interior. It has everything that you could wish for from a well stocked kitchen to a fantastic secluded hot tub on your... More

We stayed here for a mini-moon after our wedding in July 2014 - we knew we would be exhausted after the wedding and wanted a few days of total relaxation before our Honeymoon in September. We could not have dreamed for a better stay than the in The Honeymooners - it was absolutely perfect. Secluded, immaculate, luxurious and the perfect... More

I only stayed for one night alone on a business trip but it was exceptional. I stayed at The Honeymooners. The facilities were first class and an absolute delight. I relaxed in the bath looking out over the Scottish countryside in the moonlight. I did think I would do some work that evening, but no, it was so relaxing and... More

The hideaway is absolutely fantastic. We stayed in the romantics hideaway which has a lovely cosy atmosphere. The hideaway is kitted out with everything you need and the extras such as the sauna and hot tub which were well used! Would highly recommended this for a night away or a relaxing mini break!

The Hideaway Experience is brilliant. We stayed in the traditional cottage "The Romantics" and had a great weekend. The house is very well appointed, with log burner, flat screen tv, great kitchen, sauna, double bath, and a hot tub on the deck. Very secluded, although close to the main farm buildings, and the views of the surrounding countryside are great.... More

Spent one night here with my husband and wish it had been longer. Excellent accomodation, we both enjoy the luxury of 5 star but hate the presumptuousness of many 5 star hotels. This suited us perfectly. Left to enjoy luxurious surrounding but knowing that if we needed anything all we needed to do was contact Ross or Caroline. We really... More
