A romantic little hideaway, the Lakeside Cabin is surrounded by five acres of gardens and forest in Cornwall

With the aim of championing the UK staycation, co-founders of Kip Hideaways Liz Simpson and Sarah de Vere-Drummond, set up their business to offer what they call “small rentals with soul”. 

Together they have unearthed beautiful and unique retreats in stunning countryside and off-grid locations across the UK, and curated a choice much-loved boutique stays. These are not only great value but they also offer a truly memorable staycation, for couples, friends, and families alike.

The gorgeously restored Blacksmith’s Barn is situated near the North York Moors

Adventures are sure to be had at any of the boutique stays, with an offering that spans cosy huts and retreats in the treetops through to idyllic cottages and interesting architect-designed cabins. 

With captivating views across the North York Moors, the generously restored Blacksmith’s Barn (pictured above) is perfect for a group weekend break, sleeping four to six people. High wooden beam ceilings bring character and a spacious feel to the open-plan kitchen and living area, with comfortable bedrooms and a hot tub awaiting guests in need of total relaxation. 

For architecture lovers, there are many hideaways to choose from that will satisfy that taste for something with equal amounts of interesting detail and not-to-be-missed vantage points. Take a trip to the Apex cabins in Yorkshire if you fancy a spot of stargazing, or book a stay at the contemporary, off-grid Lewisian croft cabin on the Outer Hebrides’ Isle of Lewis for a restorative stay in nature.
