Luxury lodge for couples with classy hotel-style accommodation in rural Teesdale on the North Yorkshire/County Durham border

Based on their six-acre Hillcrest Park site. on the North Yorkshire/County Durham border, Kate and Ed Nichols already offer a small selection of luxurious cottage and lodges. However, they have gone the whole luxurious hog with their new Hideaway, which offers all the amenities and style of a fancy hotel suite – just one that's plonked in the middle of glorious countryside, with no one else around to bother you.

Set apart from the rest of their accommodation, Hillcrest Hideaway is a big, roomy, centrally heated space, with picture windows overlooking delightful Teesdale. There's a super-king-size bed, sofa and smart kitchenette and breakfast bar, while the classy en-suite has a double-ended bath, walk-in twin shower and his-and-her sinks. Decor is cool and contemporary, with not even a hint of outdoorsy glampiness – you're more likely to host a drinks reception here than grill a marshmallow. You could cook – and it's all set up for dining a deux – but there's an arrangement with local caterers if you'd rather order in. Then all you have to do is fire up the Nespresso machine and grab the bottle from the wine fridge. Outdoors, it's all about the elevated deck, the landscaped seating area with outdoor gas fire, and a tree-built lookout point that makes the most of those sweeping rural views.

There's a nice restaurant in Winston and a lovely pub in Caldwell – both only a mile or so away, but more the sort of places you'd drive to for a lovely evening out. Activities in this neck of the woods do tend towards the walking and cycling end of the spectrum – no surprise given Teesdale's location in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You can pick up the Teesdale Way walking trail, just down the road, and England's highest waterfall, High Force, is close by too – at least you have a lovely hotel room to go back to afterwards if you end up getting wet! For something more sedate, the Bowes Museum just outside Barnard Castle ticks all the boxes – a French-style chateau with a renowned art collection and a genteel cafe. Then back to the Hideway for prosecco and nibbles under the stars.



Available all year.


Week-long stays from £700. Short breaks from £475.
