This property sleeps a maximum of 8 adults and 4 children in 3 double bedrooms and 1 family mezzanine floor - please see 'Layout' for further information.

If you are looking for a luxurious retreat that is ideal for family gatherings or a long awaited reunion with old friends, then The Hideaway is for you. Situated 14 miles from Banchory in Aberdeenshire, The Hideaway is a converted steading that has the perfect balance of old and new. The high ceilings with exposed wooden beams and the old wooden doors provide a brilliant contrast against the sleek fittings and furnishings. The shiny black kitchen has been kitted out with all of the modern appliances, and is strikingly beautiful against the rich, chocolate-coloured flooring. This is a property for socialising and celebrating – from the cocktail making facilities to the hot tub outside the courtyard, The Hideaway has everything you need to have a fantastic time without needing to leave the house. Each of the bedrooms have been stylishly decorated, two of which have ensuite bathrooms. The top floor of the steading has been made into a large sleeping area with two double beds, which is sure to be loved by kids and teenagers alike who will be delighted to have their own space. The property boasts wonderful countryside views, making it the perfect setting for your self catering holiday in Aberdeenshire.

There is plenty to do in Aberdeenshire during your stay at The Hideaway. For the adventurous type, take a leisurely bike ride on the numerous country roads and trails, or go for a ski down the Lecht. For those who enjoy some historical sightseeing, you are right on the edge of Scotland’s Castle Trail, so it’s a great place to start your tour across Aberdeenshire where there are more castles per acre than anywhere else in the country. The River Dee is fantastic for fishing and golfers have numerous courses in the area to enjoy. Banchory and Ballater are also lovely towns to visit, and Aberdeen itself has plenty of shops, restaurants and bars to explore. Make sure you visit the Harbour, which has an arcade and amusement park that will keep the children entertained. Being just 25 miles away from Aberdeen, you are well placed for enjoying a slice of city life before heading back to the peacefulness of The Hideaway.

    The Hideaway reviews
    Property was more than expected for a wheelchair user. Bathrooms were big and we brought our own shower chair and handle which converted it into a a fully accessible shower. The location was very good and central to activities and areas to explore. The house had under floor heating which kept us warm. The house itself was actually divided into two areas and so was a family next door. Also there was a main house just outside and above us. We did not mind, but for anyone thinking they are in an isolated area free of other people and houses this is not the "hideaway" you may imagine. Also, we had a lot of trouble trying to work out how the fancy technology of the hob worked. We had to constantly turn it off and on. So, for spaciousness and accessibility we give it a big thumbs up, for value for our money it would have been well worth it if we had use of the spa, which we thought was included, and if it had been a separate property "tucked away". So a thumbs down for value for what you paid for.
