Fantastic for walking, cycling or just plain lazing around, Hideaway's interior design makes for a luxurious romantic getaway with all the comforts of home. Stone walls, beams and the roaring fire lets you know you are somewhere special, whilst great local produce and quality restaurants make sure you'll never be short of great meals and good company.
Soak up the summer evenings or gaze at the clear, pollution free night skies in the traditional cottage garden. Dine or relax in the spacious, stylish Garden Room, complete with its wood burning stove and Bose sound system. Enjoy the wood-burning stoves and Bose systems in both the cottage and garden room, a Nespresso machine with complimentary pods, internet enabled TV and high-speed broadband together with a welcome hamper containing local homemade goodies.
With walks straight from the door, from a stroll to the Black Swan Pub for diner, a visit to the mysterious Druid’s Temple or the 1.4 miles to Masham, with its large medieval market square, surrounded by beautiful Georgian architecture, pubs, fine dining restaurants, quirky shops and galleries, twice weekly markets and two breweries, you will never be stuck for things to do.
The nearby Swinton Estate offers everything from luxury Spa days, clay pigeon shooting, fishing, falconry and cookery school to traditional afternoon teas and contemporary dining in the Terrace Restaurant. Whilst the Black Sheep and Theakston breweries offer tours and the Masham Spirit distillery invites you to make your very own blend of gin.
With Wensleydale, Coverdale, Nidderdale and Swaledale on your doorstep, stunning scenery, clear running rivers and beautiful vistas are guaranteed. Couple that with the bustling market towns of Leyburn, Hawes and Reeth as well as pretty villages like Middleham, East and West Witton, with their amazing Inns, shops and history, you’ll be stuck for choice in this beautiful county. If you fancy venturing a bit further, North Yorkshire has so much to offer. From a Fat Rascal at Betty’s in Northallerton, to the elegant town of Harrogate and historic City of York, to the rugged beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, where you will find Helmsley and the Dalby Forest.
There is no doubt, you could be busy every day during a trip to North Yorkshire but if snuggling down with a good book, a bit of luxury and a roaring fire are your thing, Hideaway is the place for you.
