From humble beginnings back in the 1970s, with just a handful of cottages on our books, we are now a long established, independent agency with an enviable reputation for offering some of the most inspiring and unusual properties across southern England. We have witnessed many changes since those early days but have always remained faithful to our core values of only offering properties which we know personally in areas that we have come to know and love and are keen to share with our visitors.
By staying true to these guiding principles we are better equipped to help you find accommodation which meets your specific needs and preferences and ensure your holiday with us will be one to remember and cherish. That so many of our visitors book with us time and again is testament to this approach.
Based in Wiltshire between Salisbury and Shaftesbury in the beautiful Cranborne Chase pictured in the photo above, Hideaways offers a wide but very select choice of English country cottages across southern England from Cornwall to Kent with clusters of cottages in the Forest of Dean, Cotswolds and Welsh borders. From quirky follies, gate lodges and converted chapels to traditional thatched cottages, state-of-the-art barn conversions and smart town houses and apartments, Hideaways cottages are defined by their special qualities and unique character. In our current collection you’ll find large houses which are ideal for special family celebrations, romantic retreats perfect for honeymoons and luxury, family-friendly cottages close to the coast and in the depths of the countryside.
The Hideaways website – the third we have produced - has taken many months to research and build. Designed to make it as easy as possible for you to find and book the cottage you’re looking for, it combines informative, detailed descriptions and comprehensive photo galleries with clear pricing, up-to-date availability and a straightforward online booking and payment procedure.
All our properties are personally inspected and carefully assessed before we take them on so that we can be sure they will meet our high standards. We enjoy long-standing relationships with our owners and work closely with them to ensure property descriptions and photos are regularly updated. Any feedback you give us – positive or negative is discussed with them.
We are pleased to say that we receive consistently good feedback from our guests. 88% of the independent reviews posted on TripAdvisor about our properties have a 5 star rating.
We are always interested to hear from prospective owners. If you own, or are thinking of purchasing a property to let, we would be happy to discuss your requirements and give you more information about our services.Contact us for more information
