    The Honeymooners' Hideaway is not only for Honeymooners but many of our guests are enjoying a honeymoon or mini moon. Complete privacy and 5 star facilities are essential for that perfect start to married life, or indeed anytime in a relationship.

    5 star Hideaway for couples only offering peace, privacy, wide open spaces and all the luxury of a boutique hotel suite. The Honeymooners' Hideaway offers the best elements of a 5 star hotel and self-catering cottage combined - with great service.

    The Honeymooners' Hideaway is designed for love and romance!

    Located on its own in a private area of our farm, The Honeymooners' Hideaway commands beautiful views of the open countryside and has been designed as an eco Hideaway with the spec that you must be able to lie naked in the hot tub without a soul seeing!

    The Honeymooners' Hideaway has high quality furnishings and boutique style interiors, extra big bed with 100% Egyptian Cotton sheets, a range of quirky technology, fully equipped kitchens, personal cocktail bar, a roaring open fire in your bedroom and lounge. Cuddle up in bed or lie out on the leather settee in the lounge in front of the same wood burning stove. Relax in your own private decked area with barbeque, a hammock and amazing views.

    In the Honeymooners' Hideway you can enjoy your own sauna, outdoor hot tub, double shower, double roll top bath... which you don't have to share with other guests but which you can share together. Our Spanish masseuse provides fantastic holistic massages in the comfort of your bedroom. The dedicated spa room has direct access on to the deck where there is a cold plunge shower, ideal for when you have spent too long in the sauna!

    We believe in offering our guests as much help as they want to enjoy in-house and local experiences, either before or during their stay. We offer a range of experiences for guests to enjoy, both in The Hideaways or in the local area. Rose petals on the bed, champagne in the fridge, preparing for a marriage proposal, booking a sports car, a hot air balloon ride, request is any problem for us to arrange.

    We will collect guests from the airport or train station and also drop guests off in town to enjoy a night out on the tiles!

    Road Directions

    By car from Dundee and the South –
    Heading east towards Aberdeen along the Kingsway ring road which circles Dundee, take
    the left exit into Strathmartine road at the roundabout after you see Tescos on your right.
    Keep on this road, after one mile take the second exit at the roundabout, then head out of
    Dundee, again taking the second exit at another roundabout next to a new housing
    development. Drive straight through a little village called Bridgefoot, then keep on this road,
    up the hill, round the bend and continue on through double corners. Further along this road
    you will come to a farm road end with a sign for Balkello and The Hideaway Experience.
    Turn in here. Drive up the road past three cottages and keep going - the Hideaways are
    straight past the farmhouse on your left, on the other side of the farm buildings. The Lover's Hideaway is the furthest Hideaway from the farm, head straight on along the track.

    By car from Aberdeen and the North East -
    heading south past Forfar towards Dundee on the A90 dual carriageway, take the turn off to
    the right for Tealing and Auchterhouse. Travel through the small village of Tealing. Keep
    straight on this road for another two to three miles. Balkello Farm road end is on your right
    hand side. You will see a sign for Balkello and The Hideaway. Come up the road past three
    cottages and keep going - the Hideaway is straight past the farmhouse on your left, on the
    other side of the farm buildings.

    By car or bike from Inverness and north Perthshire –
    a more scenic route than the dual carriageway and suitable for cyclists. Heading south, turn
    off left at the lovely village of Dunkeld. Drive over the bridge and before you come into the
    main village turn right following the signs for Caputh and Coupar Angus. (Dunkeld is a great
    place to stop for lunch and about an hour maximum from The Hideaway). Keep on this road
    driving through the village of Caputh (where Caroline was brought up), Spitalfield and
    Meikleour. At Meikleour turn left for Coupar Angus. Keep on this road, you will come to a
    crossroads. Drive straight ahead. Keep on this windy and sometimes narrow road for
    another three miles. It will come to an end at a T junction. Turn right heading for Coupar
    Angus. You will drive over a bridge and up a hill into the town of Coupar Angus. At the mini
    roundabout turn left and keep on this road for about 5 miles until you come to the village of
    Meigle. In Meigle take a right turn for Dundee (a Spar shop on your right). Keep on this road
    out of the village of Meigle, on through the village of Newtyle. After around 3 miles you will
    pass Auchterhouse Country Sports on your left. Take the next main road on your left for
    Kirkton of Auchterhouse. Drive up the hill towards Kirkton of Auchterhouse village. Take a
    right for Tealing in the village, keep on this road for around 2 miles until the road comes to an
    end at a T junction. Take a right for Strathmartine, the Hideaway Experience is signposted on
    your right about 200 metres from the T junction. Come up the road past three cottages and
    keep going - the Hideaway is straight past the farmhouse on your left, on the other side of
    the farm buildings.

    By bike from Dundee Train Station or the Fife Coastal Path –
    if you are cycling from Fife, head west when you come off the Tay Road bridge. When you
    come out of the train station you want to walk over the road with your bike then head West
    as well along Riverside Drive. You will pass a large Tescos on your right. Keep cycling past
    the airport on your left for around 3 miles. You will come to a large roundabout. Go straight
    over this roundabout heading towards taking the exit after the main route south option. This
    is a windy country road and there is a bit of a hill but quieter than the main ring road round
    Dundee. Keep on this road up the hill, at the top of the hill you will take a left for Fowlis, then
    immediately take a right for Muirhead. There should be a school on your right as you go up
    another small hill. At the junction at the top turn right. Keep on this road, you come into the
    village of Muirhead. Passing the police station on your left you come to a junction. Turn right
    towards Dundee and cycle through this village of Muirhead and Birkhill. There should be
    houses on your left and a village hall followed by a garage on your right. Keep on along this
    road and out of the village. Take the next left out of the village, you will cycle through a wood
    with a grave yard on your left. Keep on this road straight down the hill. When the road comes
    to an end at a T junction, take a right. Keep on this road along a narrow and winding road.
    After 2 miles the road comes to an end at another T junction. You should see a sign for
    Tealing. Take a left here, follow the road around a bend to your right and keep on this road.
    Take a left at the next T junction, again for Tealing. Cycle straight on up the hill after going
    round a couple of bad bends. You will see a sign for The Hideaway Experience and Balkello
