Recreation trails give way sign, give way to cyclists, walkers and horse riders

Hawthorn Hideaway leads directly onto Brickyard Lane which is on a quiet public bridleway used by cyclists, walkers and horse riders, all whom should be given priority over cars. It leads to a small bridge over which the canal towpath is reached. The chance to enjoy miles of quiet countryside, right on your door step. 

Beautiful Sunsets

"Would recommend the added extras, ordered afternoon tea which was gorgeous. We also had the BBQ pack and skippered trip out, this was absolutely fantastic, it took the pressure off trying to manage ourselves so no arguing while having the fun of taking the boat out. It all made for a lovely weekend."

Swan Lodge with a luxurious gold gilt super king size bed

"We had a lovely 3 night stay at the Swan Lodge and wish we could have stayed for longer. The location was idyllic, the service was 5 star, nothing was too much trouble for Josephine, such a lovely lady. The bed was like sleeping in a giant marshmallow and the hot tub was perfect for unwinding. My husband and I booked the couples massage and me being short, I felt like I’d grown a couple of inches afterwards, it was soooo relaxing. But the highlight of our stay had to be the chickens, running up to greet us in the mornings was just mesmerising, the perfect medicine to switch off from all the stresses of life. Hawthorn Hideaway is a hidden gem!"

"Hawthorne Hideaway A lovely bolt hole with lots of scrumptious treats and activities. We booked a duo massage (sublime), afternoon tea (generous variety and even included a bunch of daffodils!), sauna (fabulous) and BBQ hut with hamper (high quality and so lavish, we had the chops and enough vegetables for dinner the following night). All highly recommended. We enjoyed walks along the canal and in the ground’s illuminated woodland. An evening glass of fizz by the water’s edge & hot tub bubbles under the stars. Our lodge (we stayed in The Swan) was cosy and had plenty of quality fittings; comfy bed, log burner, super shower and the kitchen was fitted with all the basics. The breakfast hamper provided enough for at least two breakfasts (we enhanced with extra teabags). There are too many positives to list and it’s probably nice to leave a few surprises for future guests to discover for themselves. A big thank you to Sarah, the site team and local suppliers, but especially to Josephine for your warmth and hospitality and being on hand for us when needed. We will return for another adventure soon. Kind regards, Angela and Paul"
