The Hideaway is tucked away peacefully at the rear of the lawned grounds of the owner’s home which is steeped in history and which in the 1830s included a wheelwrights post office and bakery. The Hideaway is a single-storey wooden lodge and makes an ideal retreat for couples. Also within the grounds is Walnut Tree Cottage ref 30424 and The Old Post Office 30425 providing an ideal opportunity for couples or guests wishing to holiday together whilst retaining their own space.

    Ideal for what we wanted a base to work from, weather was really good and you could sit out in privacy til whatever time . Owners were most helpful sharing local knowledge.

    It is a small wooden building at the far end of the owners land. The owners were friendly and helpful. It lacks wifi but the owner pointed out that it's distance from the house makes it not a practical proposition and they allowed us to come near to their house and log into their wifi to update things like whatsapp, emails, the weather app, BBC news etc which worked fine for us. Inside with fairly small windows and surrounded by trees and bushes it was a bit dark but that was not a problem for us. The TV is a decent sized flat screen and worked well but there was no DVD player connected to it. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen well equipped with all that we needed. There was a comfortable settee, (which could open out into a bed for a second couple) and the table had four chairs and the cutlery and crockery was for four although being so small we found it fine for the two of us but it might have felt cramped for four. The name describes it well tucked away in a large lawned garden with lots of trees around. We would happily return to this property again.

    Lovely place, perfect for a couple and small baby. Great location and very welcoming hosts. Thank you!

    The Hideaway is really lovely. Great location for New Forest walks as well as a variety of attractions such as horse riding. We loved the beautiful garden we could use and are very grateful that the hosts let us use their kids swings and climbing frames. The hosts were very hospitable and welcoming. Overall a fantastic and very relaxing stay! If I was to be picky, the pillows could be a little fluffier. The mattresses and pillows are covered with special protectors which can make a bit of a noise and regular bed sheets move on them as they are a bit slippery. I'd suggest that mattresses are covered additionally with fitted bed sheets and pillows with additional zipped covers.

    My parents had an amazing week and felt welcomed. Food hamper was lovely to start the holiday. My parents are already planning to return to this wonderful, peaceful and relaxing hideaway. Fantastic



    out of 10

    The Hideaway was cosy and in nice location. However, as there was thatching happening on other buildings on the site you couldn't park very close to the building and I am on crutches so struggled a bit with that. We were told in advance work would be going on but I did not know until the day before that it would restrict the parking. The breakfasts provided were very small and basic for a b&b. Two of us were there for 4 mornings (needed 8 breakfasts between us) we were given 4 small individual servings of cereal and 4 small eggs and a loaf of bread and one pint of milk between us for the whole duration of our stay. I am gluten free and this wasn't catered for. I would recommend the location and the property but I'd advise bringing additional food and milk for breakfasts.
