I felt like I had walked into a scene from "The Holiday" the cottage was to die for so peaceful and private the hot tub was a great feature! The warm homemade bread and strawberry jam was so tasty. The bath in the bedroom was so lovely. The sauna and fire was so romantic! I loved how it looked vintage...

It might seem a little pricey if you were interested in booking this venue but my advice would be it's so so worth it. You forget about the world around you and melt into the sheer bliss of this venue. I found this wonderful little place on Trip Advisor when I searched for outdoor hot tub. I thought a hotel...

This was our third visit to the Hideaway Experience, but our first in The Honeymooners. We had a fantastic time. Everything was perfect from the hot tub to the sauna. The wood burner was a real highlight this time - the other times we've visited have been in the summer. Already looking forward to our next visit. A&V

Years ago I remember reading about the Hideaway, and after dropping numerous hints to my fiance, I eventually booked it myself. Now there's no denying it, the Hideaway is expensive, and compared to some local competitors, you can find yourself sceptical about whether it's worth the money. Let me tell you now, it is. The Hideaway is in a different...

Just back from a night in the Romantics Hideaway and it was excellent! Sitting in the hot tub in the snow was absolutely sensational! The log burner was wonderful and the shower and sauna room were just brilliant. Great service and such wonderful views. We will be back!

Such a nice, quiet, peaceful place. I would prefer not to see anybody at all, it was a bit of too much information/instructuons on how to use everything inside the house. Beautiful interior, bathroom, bedroom, nice and clean. Beautiful view from the dining table! Very romantic. Food was fresh and all delivered to our room before arrival. It was a...

Years later I was whisked away for a surprise night away - But as soon as we turned off the dual carriageway I realised where we were going. He'd remembered!!! What was...

We arrived at the hideaway and immediately felt at home, the voicemail from the owner apologising for being unable to greet us and the door already being open with the surround sound radio on made the place feel welcoming and homely. We tucked into the complimentary sparkling wine, got the fire going and fired right into the hot tub under...

Thank you for your review on your recent stay at The Lovers' Hideaway. We are glad you returned to stay in the winter and experienced how lovely it is sitting in your hot tub in the snow and using your log burner to keep warm, it's a lovely atmosphere. It's great to hear that you felt the service was first...
