We’re a small team. That’s intentional.
We know every detail of every Hideaway, and plan every unique stay as if it were our own. Whether you’re gathering ideas or adding some finishing touches, we’d love to help.

Co-founder and owner
As well as working on new Hideaway Experience locations behind the scenes, Caroline will look after your every need if you’re here at the weekend.
Hosting is in Caroline’s DNA. She grew up on a Perthshire farm with a tourism business attached, and loved meeting all the guests. Since then, she’s travelled the world collecting experiences from luxury stays and unique destinations – and has combined them to create the ultimate couples’ break: The Hideaway Experience.
She’s also self-proclaimed foodie – Caroline can tell you where to find the best Angus produce. And if you ask her nicely, she’ll even let you in on the secret of making the perfect Scottish gin and tonic.
Dundee Hideaways Manager
Stephanie will look after you from the minute you enquire to the day you go home – and afterwards too. She loves meeting new guests and making their stays extra special, so if you’d like to add something unique, let her know. She’s arranged almost everything you can imagine – and hasn’t been fazed yet!
She’s also our resident Dundee expert; few know the city better. Restaurant recommendations. The best cocktail bars. Somewhere to sample our local beers. She knows it all. Think of her as your personal city insider – keeping you ahead of the guidebooks.
Stephanie joined us part time while studying for her business degree at Abertay University. We liked her so much we offered her a graduate trainee position – she’s been with us ever since.
Co-founder and owner
As well as co-founding the Hideaway Experience, Ross is a full-time farmer of beef (Aberdeen Angus), lamb and malting barley. He runs Balkello Farm: home of our Dundee Hideaways, and land that’s been in his family for generations.
While you’re here, you might spot Ross working in the fields – if you do, be sure to say hello. He’s always happy to chat, especially about farming, local produce or things to do in the area. He was born and bred in the county of Angus and knows all the best places to visit.
He also enjoys Scottish craft beer and Scotch whisky – so if you’re looking for any tips, just ask.
