The Lovers' Hideaway

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

The Lovers' Hideaway is designed for love and romance!

Located on its own in a private area of our farm, The Lover's 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 Lovers' Hideaway has high quality furnishings and boutique style interiors, extra big bed with 100% Egyptian Cotton sheets, a range of quirky technology, fully equipped kitchen, 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 Lovers' 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 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, bubbly 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 can arrange for a* taxi to collect guests from the airport or train station and to also drop guests off in town to enjoy a night out on the tiles!

*A complimentary taxi transfer from/to Dundee train station and airport is available for guests guest staying 3 nights or more.
