THE HIDEAWAY EXPERIENCE
& Fire Pit
LOCAL PRODUCE BREAKFAST
Hi, we are Ronnie and Josephine, the owners of Hawthorn Hideaway. We would love to welcome you to our magical Hawthorn Hideaway, a couples retreat with luxury accommodation including 2 lodges and 1 narrow boat. It sits in a 2-acre area including a woodland adjacent to our home and the scenic Chesterfield Canal. You are free to call if there is anything you need. Arrive through our gated and secure entrance, with car parking and bike storage provided for your use. The lodges and boat are only a short walk away. You have the use of your own personal garden trolley throughout your stay to transport your luggage up to your lodge, boat or your goodies to the BBQ cabin.
For exclusivity there are only 2 lodges and 1 narrowboat on site, Owl Lodge, Swan Lodge and Kingfisher, all individually designed, uniquely styled and well-spaced apart. The lodges are insulated and also have double glazed windows and patio doors letting the outside in. Enjoy the view of the woodland and listen to the birdsong from your private raised deck. Listen out for the owls at night or maybe a woodpecker pecking away in the day. If you are lucky, you might catch the blue flash of a kingfisher flying across the pond or canal. The narrowboat is also insulated with a large deck to the back and a smaller one to the front.
All are made specifically for two, with Owl Lodge and Kingfisher having a feature king size bed and Swan Lodge a feature super-king-sized bed...truly glamorous. Each has its own private hot tub, fire bowl BBQ, en suite facilities and a small, well-equipped kitchen, with a dishwasher. Enjoy being close to nature but with all the luxuries of a top-quality hotel. Everything is provided for your enjoyment and convenience. Just bring clothing, food and drink. Or if you don't fancy cooking, why not try one of our eco boxes.
Why not surprise your loved one with a celebration package of flowers, balloons or both, loving prepared and presented in your accommodation ready for your arrival. Our florist can discuss your requirements with you for your special occasion. Or book an afternoon tea for 2 delivered to your accommodation at a time that suits you.
Start off the day with your complimentary welcome breakfast hamper of delicious local produce. Cook this indoors with your gas cooker, oven and grill or outside using your fire bowl BBQ. Then burn off those calories with a hike or bike ride down the canal towpath.
On another day, why not relax with our woodland spa experience in your private hot tub and be rejuvenated by the wood burning sauna, while you take in the views of the duck pond beyond or enjoy the sensual aromatherapy of the steam cabin. Book a massage in the beautiful yurt to really feel pampered. Guests staying in Swan Lodge can at their leisure settle down in their glorious day bed that rotates to follow the sun. While in owl lodge you will have a unique log framed day bed. Kingfisher has a cosy wigwam day bed. Rest your eyes and drift into a peaceful sleep while listening to the birds high in the trees.
Fire up the BBQ cabin with a BBQ hamper of scrumptious local produce. Be seduced by a romantic indoor BBQ for 2, especially great during those wet, windy, snowy winters. It's particularly amazing in there at Christmas, so cosy and magical.
Relax by the canal, catch the canal boats slowly passing by, watch the swans, geese or ducks swim past and watch the beautiful sunsets with that special someone. Enjoy a spot of fishing in the canal but remember your rod license. Fishing is not available on site during closed season between 15th March and 15th June, for the protection of the wildlife, as our area on the Chesterfield Canal is a site of special scientific interest.
As evening draws near, why not light the fire bowl and toast marshmallows cuddled up to that special someone. At night relax in the cosiness of your lodge or boat with the warm and romantic glow of the wood burner but don't worry there is also central heating so you can sleep tight and forget about the fire going out. Talk and connect, watch a film or play a game but don't forget to listen out for those owls...Enjoy being in nature and features of glamping but in the ultimate luxury and comfort.
Or if you want to see the local area and try something new, why not fly a plane or helicopter, or see some amazing animals at the Uk's number 1 Walk-though Wildlife Adventure at Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
If you want to experience this romantic get-away and fancy a few days holiday, you are just a few clicks away.
A GUEST PERSPECTIVE
"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"
