We really enjoy visiting Hideaway. Sue and Martin are supurb hosts and the rooms are really beautifully furnished. The room we prefer has a large terrace and a view of the bay. Having breakfast brought to the terrace at the time you elect is a joy. If the weather is inclement then you eat at the large kitchen table and...

Both rooms are spacious enough for two, the Bayview does offer more space to move around, for the clothes storage and amenities the available room is identical though. The...

What can I say - I think the fact that we have stayed here on previous occasions says it all. Sue & Martin are warm, friendly and helpful hosts and we are always sorry to say goodbye at the end of our trip.
