Have you ever just wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of life in a little off the grid cottage in the middle of the countryside?

Well, you can at Hex Cottage, the perfect electricity-free staycation spot fit for a witch or fairytale princess. The property is nestled in an 8,000-acre private estate just outside of Yoxford and Peasenhall in Suffolk.

It has a dreamy thatched roof, cosy interior, fragrant Lavender garden and housekeeping (performed by the delightful staff, not woodland creatures, mind you).

While an electricity-free mini-break might sound daunting, you have nothing to worry about because Hex Cottage has a wood burner that heats up water and provides light, and there are plenty of candles at the ready too.

And let's all be honest, endless emails, TikTok and the millions of different streaming services available take up a rather astonishing amount of our time. So why not disconnect for a while and have a little slice of the slow cottagecore life, there are still plenty of things to do.

Try reading by candlelight, biking through the winding roads, frolicking amongst trees or rowing a boat down the River Yox; without that lingering digital distraction, you will feel much more present and will undoubtedly create memories that will last a lifetime. Besides, you can also quite easily take a short excursion to a nearby village for a wander and a delicious pub lunch.

Dog owners can also rejoice as the cottage is dog-friendly, which is a real plus as it's always a little disheartening to have to part ways with your four-legged friend on holiday and it must be said that the expansive grounds around the cottage really lend themselves to a fantastic dog walk.
