Hideaways – Your Home Away From Home in the UK

Everyone needs some time away from the bustling city.  And whether you live in the UK or are travelling through the country, you could be thinking about a little getaway.  That’s where Hideaways comes in.  Spanning 12 counties, Hideaways has an extensive collection of country cottages, farmhouses, apartments and homes set in rural and coastal areas within driving distances from London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and Surrey.

Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway, a week long R&R, or a month-long stay, it’s all very flexible. The property’s rental availabilities are clearly stated, allowing for easy planning and booking. Hideaways provides you with a variety of English country cottages that will blow you away.

What’s your style?

Hideaways-2Hideaways breaks it down for its vacationers what type holiday style you are looking for, whether is pet friendly cottages, cottages for a large group, for those who like fishing, or accessible cottages for those with mobility difficulties, etc. All of these hidden retreats have their own unique charm. Some of them reminds me of places I might stay if I was living in the Shire for all the LOTR fans, Foley’s cottage, and I kid you not, there is also one named the Hobbit House. What if you want something a little more fancy? Well they’ve got them too!  They have in stock some luxurious summer homes that will give you the wow factor too, check out The Lodge at Bashley, or the Undercastle cottage.

Reconnect with the outdoors

Hideaways-1The bells and whistles you get are not only from the cottages but the area and nature that surrounds it. Embrace the great outdoors, breath the crisp air, feel the light wind on your face, smell the sweet flowers in the garden. Perhaps, try fishing your dinner (but do prepare a backup in case you’ve caught nothing at the end of your fishing line). However, if you must be on your computer or phone, there are also wifi in most of these properties.


Spending quality time with your family and friends

Hideaways-3I think the most enjoyable thing about cottages is that it allows you to focus on yourself and your companions. Cook food together and get your hands dirty, find the big dipper constellation in the starry nights and know which way points north, and most importantly, have some wine and laugh a little! Life is good.

  1. I am always so jealous that being in Europe, you have such a plethora of options and “getaways” at your finger tips. I drive 8 hours in one direction, I am still in my own province (Canada).

  2. We’ll keep these English cottages in mind! They look great :-).
