My 79-year-old Mum and I had an absolutely super week (in late April to early May), with the first glorious weather of the year being an added bonus. The Hideaway is a tucked-away-yet-close-to-everything delight - and the current photos just don't do it justice!

Both of us are seasoned visitors to self-catering accommodation across the UK - and The Hideaway is now right at the top of our lists. Homely, stylish, clearly loved and cared for, it was ideal for the pair of us.

Unlike some other reviewers, we ventured out and about each day of our stay (often with a picnic comprising bread from the great Charmouth bakery). Visiting Sidmouth via the coast road with stops at Seaton and Beer (great fresh scallops and mackerel bought from the fishmongers on the jetty for cooking 'at home') was a highlight - as was a day at one of our favourite gardens, Ford Abbey, near Chard. The sub-tropical gardens at Abbotsbury were as superb as ever (particularly on the only day when it was slightly damp); and 'real market town' Bridport and the nearby West Quay are charming too. Lyme Regis was beautiful and buzzing. Brunch at The Hive Cafe just above the beach in Burton Bradstock was a real foodie treat.

Our only (very, very minor) suggestions on departure were with respect to the lack of a cafetiere and a chopping board in the kitchen. I know these have already been taken on board by the owner.

A lovely house, in a lovely place, in a lovely part of the country...

“A Stylish & Contemporary Property, In A Location Which Is Hard To Beat.”

We’ve just returned from a wonderful few days at The Hideaway in Charmouth, and although I’ve not posted a review on TripAdvisor for quite some time, I felt on this occasion I had to.

It was a relatively late booking and the communication with the owner (phone, email and post) could not have been better. The directions to the property were clear and the information and description provided totally accurate.

‘The Hideaway’ is ideally named, because although the single story detached house is just 20 or so meters from the quite road leading from the village down to the beach, it’s entirely out of sight of passing traffic. The house is clad in timber to give it a really relaxed beach house feel from the outside, and parking, a garage, and secluded part walled enclosed garden meant it was ideal for the four of us (2 children under 5).

Although the situation and location is wonderful, it’s not until you enter the property that you really appreciate the quality of this holiday rental. The owners have clearly lavished much time, money and love improving and furnishing the house, it’s a wonderfully relaxing place to spend a break.

Everything within the property fits perfectly with the relaxed but stylish design of a contemporary beach house. The decoration, fixtures and appliances all felt brand new – and extras like wifi, a BT Vision box and plasma TV meant that the cooler April evenings were spent in complete comfort.

We’d never been to Dorset before, but travelled no further than 15 miles from the property over the entire 5 days we were there, finding more than enough to entertain us locally. Lyme Regis (just 3 miles away) is a relatively fashionable seaside resort offering a family friendly beach with fine sands towards the harbour. We enjoyed an evening meal in Axminster (5 miles) at the River Cottage Canteen (book in advance), a really good Indian takeaway from Cinnamons (again Axminster) and afternoon tea at The Downhouse Farm Garden Cafe outside Bridport. There are numerous other beaches nearby, including of course Charmouth which is just 300 meters down the road from the house. Here there’s a cafe, fossil centre and access to the coastal path, and was somewhere the kids love to walk to in the early evening after days out.

I would not hesitate to recommend The Hideaway to other couples or families, the property is undeniably peaceful, attractive and superbly equipped, and the location on the beautiful Dorset coast, ideal.
