A sleek and sumptuous 19th century barn conversion, set on a private organic farm surrounded by Somerset countryside.
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Bedroom: 1
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

Perfectly nestled on the private, family-owned Fords Croft Farm, you’ll find The Hideaway secluded amongst acre after acre of soothing fields and enchanting woodland.

Not only are you completely surrounded by gorgeous green views, but the farm is also home to ‘Castle Hill’, the subject of a Time Team excavation that resulted in the exciting discovery of a 13th century castle!  

Feel free to take in those magnificent views from the very top of the hill, where you’ll feel as though time has come to a complete standstill (you will also be able to book a slot on arrival for The Hillside Hot Tub, to which The Hideaway has access during your stay – sounds like a real treat to us!).

Part of a unique collection of romantic cottages on the organic farm, The Hideaway is an aptly-named 19th century barn conversion for two, complete with idyllic south-facing views.

Lovingly styled and sumptuously furnished, you’ll note many well-preserved original features throughout, together with high-end additions that include an indulgent roll-top bath and a toasty woodburner.

The open-plan living room is styled for complete comfort and relaxation, with plenty of space and light. Greet the sunrise by heading through the glass doors, and out to the expansive patio with your steaming mug of coffee.  

There’s a well-equipped kitchen and dining area too, ideal for cosy romantic suppers.

More information

Reminiscent of a five-star hotel suite, the kingsize bedroom and opulent bathroom are steeped in luxury. You’ll find the downy bed irresistibly dressed in Egyptian cotton, while the bathroom features a walk-in shower along with the aforementioned roll-top bath…and of course, plenty of fluffy white towels to wrap yourselves in.

While it’s tempting to hole yourselves up completely in The Hideaway, there’s plenty to see and do in the surrounding area if you feel like venturing out.  

You could start by taking the footpath that leads you from the cottage, straight to an award-winning gastropub in nearby Hinton St. George! Another leads you to the antique shop-filled market town of Crewkerne, or if you feel like travelling slightly further afield, you can jump in the car and reach the awe-inspiring World Heritage Jurassic Coast within half an hour.

You can indulge in a spot of adrenaline-fuelled activity too, from archery and horseriding, to golf and polo…and you’ll even have the opportunity to take an electric bike tour of the local area.

There’s a luxury spa close by too, along with the famed River Cottage, which offers cookery courses and memorable dining experiences.

Why not plan your holiday activities as you stargaze around the crackling evening firepit, well-deserved glass of wine in hand?

(Of course, with the local village shop willing to deliver all the supplies you’ll need during your stay, you may want to simply hide yourselves blissfully away from the world – and there’s no harm in that, is there?)

Things to note

No children or pets permitted. No smoking.
