Hillview Hideaway is a superbly designed, luxury, one-bedroom holiday home, with a fabulous hot tub set in its own private patio. This peaceful retreat has a bright and spacious open-plan kitchen-dining-living area, a spa-like shower room and a beautiful mezzanine bedroom. It has every comfort and amenity guests need for a pampered, self-catering stay from the air-conditioning to the cosy robes. Hillview Hideaway is in the quiet Cotswold village of Gotherington, independent of and tucked away behind its parent property. It is an excellent base for visits to Cheltenham Racecourse, Prescott Hill Climb and Sudeley Castle, with fantastic walking from the doorstep and the village pub less than a mile away.
Full Description
Sitting behind the owner’s thatched cottage, off Gretton Road in the sleepy village of Gotherington, is Hillview Hideaway - a luxury retreat, ingeniously designed into a double garage. If at first you feel this is just a garage, just wait until you open the garden gate, where you will begin your adventure and discover it is so much more.

Step through the side door into a contemporary light and bright, open-plan living space with a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area - with a circular table and seating for two - a living area - with a large smart TV - and a luxurious shower room with a double-width walk-in shower. On the mezzanine floor, in the eaves of this delightful holiday retreat, is a beautifully appointed, double bedroom, with air conditioning for warm summer nights and five windows all with custom blinds, allowing light to shine in while ensuring a good night’s sleep.

Once you’re through the tall, wooden side gate, you’ll immediately notice the attention to detail that the owners have lavished on their holiday home, from the adorable wellie boot rack through to the manicured patio with its hot tub, seating area and BBQ. To the front is a dedicated parking space and a charging point for electric cars. It’s the perfect space to relax in after a long day exploring the Cotswold countryside and sights.

Ground Floor

Step through the side entrance into the stylish and immaculately presented open-plan living space where you’ll at once appreciate the attention to detail and the calming ambiance created by the soft white, natural colours and wood-effect flooring. To one side are hooks to hang your coats on the newel post and an umbrella stand with space for shoes. Look above and you’ll see a large, circular light tube bringing a lovely wash of natural light inside.

Living Area:
To the left of the entrance way is a cosy living area, with a two-seater chaise sofa, coffee table, reading light and foot stool positioned to snuggle up and comfortably watch the Smart TV.

The fully and very well-equipped kitchen has every appliance needed for a completely self-catered stay, including an oven, microwave, gas hob and extractor fan, a dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine and dryer. Plenty of white Corian worktops provide all the space needed to prepare your meals and drinks.
Under the stairs is a drinks fridge and cupboards for your own kitchen supplies, as well as a handy hanging wardrobe for your coats and jackets.

Dining Area:
At the centre of the open-plan living space is the dining area, with a circular table and two comfy chairs.

Shower Room:
The stylish shower room features a double width, walk-in shower, with an overhead rainfall shower head and hand-held shower. The wash basin has a custom-built vanity unit with a make-up mirror and a large over-sink mirror. Motion-sensor lights in the shower room, mean the main light and fan don’t have to be turned on during night-time visits to the toilet, ensuring the sleeping partner isn’t disturbed!

First Floor

A standard-width, carpeted staircase with a handrail and eye-catching glass panels leads up to:

This delightful bedroom has light pouring in through three Velux windows and two apex windows each with custom-made blinds, ensuring a good night’s sleep. The bedroom is furnished with a standard double bed with bedside tables, dimmer reading lights and a long, cushioned bench at the foot of the bed. The bedroom also has a dressing table with a mirror, lamp and stool, a luggage rack and a set of basket drawers on which guests will find the hot tub towels and bathrobes. At the top of the stairs is an air-conditioning unit to ensure guests are super comfortable even on the occasional hot summer night.


A tall, wooden gate opens from the dedicated parking area at the front of the property to a path that passes the entrance door to the side and leads to the patio. Here you will find the pristine hot tub and a seating area with two rattan-style armchairs, a drinks table and a large gas BBQ (tools and fuel provided). To the front of the property is a parking spot with an electric vehicle (EV) charging point.

  • It is our policy not to take bookings for single sex group celebrations, which includes Stag and Hen nights, or groups where the majority are under 25 years.
  • There is limited headroom in the bedroom to either side of the bed, which could make the bedroom uncomfortable for very tall guests.

We have just returned from our stay at hill view. It is a beautiful renovated property that appears to be a double garage from the outside. It is decorated to a high standard with everything you would need for your stay. It is in a great location in the welcoming village of Gotherington with amenities close by and driving distance to many of the beautiful villages in the Cotswolds. We would definitely recommend this property to others and I’m sure we will return in the future.
