“Superb Post Christmas Tranquility”

We arrived in the darkness, rain and winds on friday night. I got the keys from the little key holder with the code Charmaine had provided me with. (A nice little touch so you have peace from the very outset) However we had issued with the door when the wind caught it, however one call to Charmain had Jonathan arrive within a couple of mins and it was sorted. (thanks for that). Other than that we never saw them at all. OUr first impressions of the cabin were "WOW", a superbly decorated place, very snug and cosy. Just what we had hoped. Everything in there that you would really need. There is no oven just a hob and two microwaves. all the cutlery you would need, and crockery. We werent able to do any walking due to the weather unfrotunately but that was a good thing as it meant we could just kick back and enjoy the peace of the cabin. The bed was comfortable, the heating worked a treat, the shower nice and hot. Really for what we paid we had a great time there. Too cloudy for star spotting so we will be back in the warmer months to enjoy everything on offer arounf the cabing including a BBQ and a spiot of fishing in the loch. Perfect for a couple, but could accomodate two adults with one child comfortably. Loved it. Our sat nav ran out of juice just as we hit Dalry. The B7000 is not signposted anywhere so make sure you have yours charged. if you dont have one then its really the first real left on that road up through the village.

Found the cabin to be so peaceful and secluded, just what we needed after the Edinburgh fringe.
Would recommend this to anyone who needs to relax.
Will be coming back soon.

I took my husband for his 50th birthday.Lovely cabin, lovely area with beautiful scenery and areas to walk,cycle or just sit and relax.The cabin was lovely throughout and Charmain and Jonathon are lovely people who will assist you if help is needed, but will also leave you be so you can be left to relax.We saw many different species of birds including woodpecker and also hares,cows sheep.Loved it from beginning to end of our stay.Highly recommend.

“Gorgeous hideaway retreat nestled in beautiful countryside!”

Me and my Fiancé visited the Hideaway for two nights during April this year and we couldn't have been any happier. Due to late plans and traffic we didn't arrive until late at night but the owners were so accommodating, helpful, friendly and welcoming. The cabin itself was perfect. It was spacious, modern, had all the facilities we needed and was completely spotless. We felt right at home. The view through the patio doors at night and in the morning was breath taking. All in all we will definitely stay here again next time we are in Scotland and we would recommend The Hideaway to anyone we meet.
