Bolthole

By Deane Barker tags: slang, real-estate

This refers to either:

  1. A means of quick escape (a “hole” through which a human or animal can “bolt”)
  2. A hidden refuge

I’m not sure if the correct spelling has a hyphen. I’ve seen it both ways.

Why I Looked It Up

In The Traitor, they referred to a small London apartment owned by a gangster as a “bolthole.”
