Why we love Hawthorn Hideaway for a weekend
Four little words: sauna, massage, bubbles, and back-to-nature bliss (ok, seven little words). Yes ladies, hens and mini-mooners, when you want boutique accommodation, on-site luxury experiences, and a natural wonderland of woods and water to explore, Hawthorn Hideaway in Nottinghamshire fits the bill.
You’ll find Hawthorn Hideaway living up to its name hidden away in two acres of Nottinghamshire woodland, bordering Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Created by husband and wife team, Josephine and Ronnie, this secluded site features 3 unique retreats generously spaced apart from each other, with only trees, birds and wildlife sharing the space.
There are 2 lodges and 1 narrowboat which are perfect for you and your BFFS to takeover for a short break or weekend. All you have to do is fight it out over which one you stay in. May the odds ever be in your favour.
Swan Lodge Is as attractive as it sounds with a super-king gilt scrollwork ‘bling’ bed to fall into on an evening, a cream leather Chesterfield sofa to snuggle up on, and a wood-burning stove to warm your cockles by (if they need warming). There’s also a large walk-in shower, quality eco toiletries, complimentary fluffy bathrobes and towels, and a fully-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher. Outside Swan Lodge there’s a private garden space with a large rotating day bed to swan about on (oh, hello) and a fire bowl and BBQ set for al fresco feasting. And – best of all – a raised deck with a hot tub to kick back in with the girls and a whole lot of sweet nothing to worry about. Sleeps 2.
Owl Lodge. Just like its sister lodge, this glamping beauty comes with all the trimmings you need to stay smiling for a long weekend, including a hot tub on the deck outside, a king-size carved mahogany bed inside (with an extra deep mattress and luxury bedding), a large red leather Chesterfield sofa and a wood burning stove. The kitchen is fully pimped with a dishwasher, the large walk-in shower comes complete with soft bathrobes and towels, and the outdoor garden boasts a wooden day bed to take your chill-out time to the max. Sleeps 2.
Kingfisher. Bobbing happily on the Chesterfield Canal, at the edge of Hawthorn Hideaway is Kingfisher – a 57ft narrowboat. It sleeps 2 and is supremely handsome inside: hey, if you don’t smuggle the electric blue velvet sofa home, we will. There are real wood floors throughout, a king-sized bed, and, similarly to Owl and Swan Lodge, there’s a fully-quipped kitchen with dishwasher, gorgeous shower ensuite, as well as a smart TV and log burner.
Kingfisher also has a large deck at the back of the boat to catch a sunset or sunrise and its own private fenced-off garden with hot tub and day bed. Best of all, if you want to pootle off along the waterway during your Nottinghamshire short break – by captaining the boat yourself or opting to have a skipper to do it for you – you can. Simply opt for the ‘cruising option’ when you book. Sleeps 2.
Your hosts Josephine and Ronnie know how to make a romantic stay or a girls’ weekend away at Hawthorn Hideaway extra special. As well as a complimentary breakfast hamper (stuffed with locally-sourced bacon, eggs and sausages), there are a range of other foodie treats, hampers and experiences on-site, that can be pre-arranged for you. Including:
BBQ Cabin. Want some flame-grilled fun with the girls? The indoor BBQ hut at Hawthorn Hideaway is available to book in two-hourly slots and BBQ hampers can also be purchased.
Sauna Cabin. Fancy steaming away the years alongside the birds and the bees? Hell yeah. Then book a sauna cabin session in the Hawthorn Hideaway woodland sauna.
Spa Yurt. Love a full body massage before a sauna session? Don’t we all. Then head into the stunning Spa Yurt at Hawthorn Hideaway where you can enjoy a massage of your choice. Glow girl.
Afternoon Tea. Ready to chow down with your bezzie mates on some fine nosh? They’ll delivered Afternoon Tea fresh to your cabin or narrowboat in a wicker basket. Easily pimped with flowers, balloons handmade chocolates and a splash of something fizzy. Hic.
