It's a perennial problem if there isn't room to tuck it away out of sight somewhere. As Salino says - hiding it with a screen is possibly the best option if you don't want to buy another type of line. Erect a simple screen even with hazel sticks/bamboo if you don't want to do trellis and grow something temporarily on it to disguise your smalls and help hide it. Either that, make the rest of your plot so attractive you don't see it.
I've also done a similar thing to Dove in the past - a large hook on the house wall and one across the garden onto the pergola. I just coiled the line up when I brought the washing in and tucked it out of sight behind the planting at the house wall.
I had a wobbly rotary line when I moved here so I concreted the spike into a standard builder's bucket then dug a hole and put it in and covered the top with the surrounding gravel. I can now move it to another location as I'm redesigning the garden anyway.
