Our Guiding Principles
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.
Cottages of Distinction
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 townhouses 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.
