About the property

Detached Lake House with 4 bedrooms, 4 bath, peaceful location, beautiful views and walks from door

Hideaway was one of the original wooden holiday chalets built on the banks of Rudyard Lake and has recently been rebuilt to provide a modern, efficient and comfortable retreat, retaining it's ability to blend into it's secluded and beautiful woodland surroundings.

Reacliffe road forms part of the Staffordshire way which is a popular walking area. Hideaway is within walking distance to Rudyard Lake visitor centre with its tearoom, pleasure boat and small passenger steam train. Many attractions within the Staffordshire Moorlands are close, including Alton Towers and the Peak District.

The house is built over three levels. There is off road parking for three cars, adjacent to Reacliffe road, where the property is entered by the front door which leads into the second floor hallway. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a cloakroom on this level.

Stairs then lead down to the first floor where there is a large open plan kitchen/living room with log burner, a further bedroom and bathroom. The large wrap around balcony is accessed from this level.

A second set of stairs lead down to the ground level. Here there is a games room with a second kitchen area, forth bedroom and bathroom.

From this level, French doors lead out onto the garden area where there is direct access to the jetty into the lake. Guests can enjoy using the lake for fishing (rod licence needed), boating, canoeing or just watching others sailing. The outdoor area also has an under balcony covered area where there is a large dining table, BBQ and Hot tub for 6 persons.

Hideaway has been decorated to a high standard that has been influenced by the natural beauty of its surroundings. Every bedroom and living area enjoys views of the lake.

For your entertainment, there are TVs in every bedroom, a TV in the games room and a Smart TV in the Living area. There are 4 DVD players in the property. In the games room there is a pool table and Hi-Fi. Wi Fi is available throughout the house.

As the property is within a sensitive area, all cleaning products are eco friendly and these are all provided and all included in the rental price. The property is equipped with everything to provide a luxury holiday whether staying for a week or short break.

Please note that short breaks are strictly either Friday to Monday or Monday to Friday, both at the same cost.

Full week stays are strictly Friday to Friday.

Due to the quiet location, the property is not suitable for groups who would like loud house parties, e.g. stag and hen parties.

Beautifully presented house with great facilities in a stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortably accommodates up to four couples, the owners have thought of pretty much everything for a lovely stay. The lake is beautiful and safe for kayaking and boating, with some stunning sunrises and sunsets over the water. Will definitely be going again when we can.

A delightful short break which suited four generations of our family

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove down the lakeside road to Hideaway, we knew that we were in for a treat. Jayne warmly welcomed us and gave us a tour around the property. It is beautifully positioned on Rudyard Lake, with wonderful views which the house takes advantage of. The accommodation was perfect for us, from my elderly mum to my two grandsons aged two years and three weeks! All of the rooms are delightful, warm and comfortable. We really enjoyed using the boats and warmed up in the hot tub afterwards. The decor has been very tastefully thought out and the design of all the rooms very well planned. We enjoyed a walk around the lake despite the changeable weather. Thank you for the welcome goodies which all went down very well. We will all cherish many happy memories of our stay at Hideaway. Thanks a lot!!

We had a bbq, we used the hot tub, we went fishing, we went out on the canoes. Watched films, read books, lit the log burner. Honestly it was the best weekend.

Superb house, perfectly equipped in a tranquil setting!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hideaway as a family and group of friends for the second time! Despite the weather we had a fantastic weekend. The luxury house is very well equipped, a real home from home, with every detail covered. There is lots to do at the house, beautiful scenery with lots of walks, a boat to cruise the lake or use the kayaks if you're feeling more energetic, or simply relax in front of the log burner and enjoy the lovely surroundings! Jayne, the owner, is most helpful, if a problem should arise. I would definitely recommend a stay at Hideaway, we hope to return soon!

Should be allowed to give more than 5stars!

  • 5 of 5

From the welcome pack of cake wine milk etc to the use of the kayaks and battery boat from the quality furnishings to the 5star hotel finish...this house has it all....and the views..virtually every room has a full HD quality view of Rudyard Lake.

You will NOT be disappointed. This house can easily hold 4 couples making it around £53 ea couple per absolute snip.

We had a fantastic week.
