Electricity-free and nestled in secluded woodlands, Hex Cottage lets you escape the modern world.

Person approaching Hex Cottage

Lit by candles and open fires, Hex Cottage offers a rare opportunity to tune into the natural sounds of the countryside rather than the jarring humming and buzzes of daily life. There's a lavender meadow out back, herb garden and a freestanding bath overlooking the woodlands. On a weekend break you could explore the local area on a traditional Pashely bike (included as part of your stay), take to the waterways on a stand-up paddleboard and soak in some of the cleanest air in England. In the summer months fire up a BBQ on the terrace and watch the sunset, and when it's chilly, hunker down on fluffy sheepskin blankets in front of an open fire.

Tucked away in Sudbury is Cradle, a plant-based bakery, café and restaurant serving up quality meat-free dishes and nutty chocolate tarts. ‘After hour’ three-course meals are up for grabs at weekends too.

Visit a seal colony

Get up close and personal with both grey and common seals (and their fluffy white pups) off the coast of Norfolk or Suffolk. A handful of companies offer boat trips from Orford, Blakeney Point and Southwold.
