  • "We enjoyed our stay at the Hideaway."

    Welcome pack was lovely Cakes excellent and cider very good we are now confirmed cider drinkers! The garden was great for our dogs . Buddy our Jack Russell did manage to get up the side of the shed.we kept him out afterwards using the ornamental wheelbarrow planter! We covered the sofa with covers we use at home for ours.our dogs are very much sofa surfers. Unfortunately we found it a squeeze. Bed was comfortable and shower great.Towels and gowns provided! Good to have the air conditioning on hand though we didn't use it. The hot tub was great after a very hot afternoon in Bath of all places. We recommend it to anyone with small to medium size dogs as long as they aren't sofa surfers like ours. Very well situated for Somerset and North Devon coast.Cheddar Wells and Glastonbury too! We would like to return in the future!

    The Property has everything you need for a relaxed, self contained stay. There was a wonderful welcome pack with cakes and fresh bread very kind and the apple juice was lovely! Patch had a bone, towel and blanket waiting that was a lovely touch! The hot tub was perfect, took us a little while to get the hang of it but we thoroughly enjoyed it and the fluffy robes were perfect after we dried off... love the touch of the hanger in the tree

    The outdoor solar light wasn't working, but Jane kindly dropped us off some new ones thank you! The only recommendation would be a drying rack for our clothes and towels, as we had alot of wet items from using the hot tub and all the rain, apart from that everything we needed, many thanks

  • "Cottage was not as clean as it should have bern."

    Garden had dogs poo in it from previous people. The garden had no light as the light was broken so a hazzard as ot was pitch black. The hot tub cover and area was full of rotten apples from the tree and had not been cleared. The lounge doors leading to the garden and exit was in a poor state and you had to really push to open and same to close it, the door had dropped but had not been put right. Areas in the cottage had not been cleaned and was dirty. We left early and not staying the full time we had paid for. And did Sykes care? Not at all and had the cheek to give us a £25 voucher to use in the future. Like we would ever use Sykes again!!

    Hi. I was very upset when Sykes called to say why you had left. You didn’t speak to me to give me a chance to sort anything out. The garden has solar lights which have been fine all summer but now are obviously no good because of darker night. So I’ve now put in more lights thank you for telling me. I’ve never had complaints of cleaning in there before I’ll speak to the cleaner. the place is new so the doors have obviously dropped so I’ll get them sorted. I had the gardener booked in to put some shingle down in the garden the weekend after you left where its starting to get muddy so have got her to cut back the apple tree. I could have got that done while you were staying if you had asked. If things go wrong I always do my best to sort them out when people tell me so I was very sad that I didn’t have that chance with you and I’m so sorry you were not happy. Property Owner

  • "Cozy little cottage adjoining the owners' farmhouse and hidden away from other cottages in the pretty courtyard of converted barns on this 400 year old farm."

    The owners have thought of everything, a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, powerful shower, fresh bread, cakes, cider, apple juice, farm fresh milk and best of all the wood fired hot tub (the pond as we renamed it). There is nothing quite like relaxing in a steamy tub looking up at the stars. Great location for exploring Somerset too. Just a short drive to Brean or Burnham on Sea with their huge beaches and typical British seaside fun. A short drive inland to the Mendip Hills, Somerset Levels and dreamy Glastonbury. Lots of lovely small towns and villages to explore. Farm shops and cider farms at regular intervals with their delicious produce and to top it off some of the most welcoming and friendly people we have ever met on our travels. We will return soon. For a delicious breakfast very nearby Ollie's Cafe on Bristol Road in Brent Knoll is well worth a visit.

  • "This was our first visit to The Hideaway and it is possibly the best holiday property we've ever booked."

    It certainly is hidden away and is very quiet & private located within a small but beautiful period walled garden. We had 2 dogs who absolutely loved it, plus the garden is completely enclosed & safe which removes our usual worries. The cottage is located within the owner's farm & property and is a brilliant & lovely setting for a peaceful break. Jane's dog became my friend and was always quietly waiting for my next appearance with a treat! It is a fantastic place to stay and we will be back again sometime next year. Thoroughly recommended.

    When we arrived the cottage was spotless and had a nice welcome basket of goodies for us and our two dogs. The bed and bedding are very comfortable, with all new fixtures and fittings throughout. The Hideaways garden is very secure meaning you can let the dogs roam outside without worrying that they will escape. A welcome addition is the Hot Tub to relax after a busy day exploring the area. Nicely situated for the local beaches with Cheddar Gorge only 20 minutes away. Jane who is very friendly lives on site, so any problems she is there for you.

    Everything you needed was there including Dressing gowns, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid... everything, including a wonderful Welcome pack of Bread, butter, jam, bottle of Cider, bottle apple juice & cakes. Property was clean & tidy. We enjoyed the Hot Tub, but next time we go we would take our own wood from a local source as we had to buy from a garage & that seem very expensive as a bag per use of the Hot tub. The whole set up was lovely, well worth booking & very private. Enclosed garden for the dog was also great.

Resting in the quaint Somerset village of Lympsham, just a short drive east of Brean, lies this delightful, one-bedroom holiday annex, The Hideaway.

With a tastefully-presented, open-plan living space, a lush, lawned garden with private hot tub, and superb proximity to the nearby Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming property welcomes a couple for a relaxing, self-catered retreat not far from the Somerset coast.

After you've unpacked, make yourself comfortable in your lovely new home-from-home, by setting up shop in the fully-equipped kitchen where you'll find with sleek granite worktops and all the appliances required to rustle up a delicious, romantic dinner for two.

Savour your dinner at the breakfast bar, or even alfresco on the outdoor patio seating as you soak in your calming new surroundings.

When you're ready, take a dip in the bubbling warm waters of the outdoor hot tub, where you can sit back and gaze up as the starry night sky begins to appear overhead.

When sleep finally calls, refresh with a long, rejuvenating shower before you settle down for a well-earned slumber in the plush king-size bed.

If you can tear yourself away from your tranquil home, head out and explore what your local area has to offer.

Head into Lympsham, where you can stock up on supplies at the Lympsham Village Shop, before you continue up north to The Hobbs Boat for a hearty, sit-down pub lunch.

For a full day out, make the brief car trip west to the coastal town of Brean, where you can find an array of exciting things to do.

Snap photos for your albums at the Wreck of the SS Nornen and the Unity Farm Statue, get up close and personal with small animals at the Animal Farm Adventure Park, and then finish off with an adrenaline-fuelled evening spent at the thrilling Brean Theme Park.
