Not far from anywhere ,there are plenty of little villages in easy reach to explore. The host couldn't do enough , and it's the only cottage of many I have stayed in , where I have been encouraged to leave the linen in situ !! Reviewed by Jane5.0★Sep 2022 "The Hideaway was a little gem, what a great find." Our hosts Guy & Tinnaya we’re lovely people and very helpful, nothing was too much bother.

The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom small but had everything needed. Our hosts were friendly but unobtrusive, we were made to feel welcome. This is a lovely area for a break as there are so many places nearby. On street carparking was no hassle and we discovered the red phone box book exchange close by, my husband must have read 3 novels in down time. Thank you, we hope to return soon Reviewed by Sandra4.7★Aug 2022 "Lovely cosy cottage, very clean and very well equipped." Excellent location for exploring this beautiful part of the country.

Wonderfully welcoming owners; it is my second visit and hopefully not my last Reviewed by Lyn5.0★Dec 2021 "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Hideaway." It was spotlessly clean, cosy, comfortable and nicely placed for local walks. The garden was a lovely place to relax and enjoy after a day out. Eckington was within easy reach of all the places we wanted to visit and we're happy we chose The Hideaway and Eckington for our holiday.

It is in a quite location, the owner has made the property its own private garden which is very sunny all day. There is plenty of information on the area with many footpaths and local walks. Would recommend the property. Reviewed by John5.0★May 2021 "Fabulous retreat in the quiet and friendly village of Eckington." Hosts (Guy and Nattaya) are very welcoming and on hand if needed (but don't intrude at all). Lovely garden, with a newly-created, little fenced area for guests to use (though Guy and Nattaya were kind enough to show us round the main garden and encourage us to use that, too). The cottage was immaculate, and has everything needed for a relaxing, fully-equipped holiday. The listing warned that wi-fi can be patchy; but, with very few occasional and brief blips, we experienced no problems. Trains pass by the end of the garden, but are only noticeable because, otherwise, the only sounds are bird songs! Parking is on local roads -- but we easily found a spot (with Guy's helpful suggestion) just 20 yards or so away, which we had no problem using when we returned each evening from our excursions. This is a fabulous location for days out in the Cotswolds, or simply for hiding away from the world for a chilled, pleasant holiday. Needless to say, we shall be returning. Very highly recommended. Reviewed by David5.0★May 2021 "Our hosts were very nice and very helpful and we had a great time." Disappointed to see that you are charging £2750 for seven nights in a chalet in Mundesley where we live. It's kind of tainted our view of Sykes.

The Hideaway was exceptionally clean and well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Our hosts were very welcoming and left us to our own devices, but were available if needed. There are two public houses at Eckington, both serving excellent food, (dined out 3 times!) just a 5 minute walk away. A village shop for papers and everything else, again a very short walk away. There is a train line running at the back of the property, but did not interfere with the delight of the property. I would not hesitate to visit the Hideaway again as we had a lovely holiday!

Although you clearly state parking is on the road, there are double yellow lines on both sides of the road outside the main house, however we did manage to find somewhere to park all week.
