In this hyper-quick society of ours, where work pressure looms and stress is loaded on by the bucket full, sometimes a detox from the commotion is needed. The lure of our phones, tablets and computers can be too strong to resist, so how about a remote, wifi-free holiday? We have found five brilliant properties where you can step away from the internet, spend time with your loved ones and get back outside into the fresh air.
Beautiful Sibton Cottage
If you really want an ‘off-the-grid’ holiday, then this beautiful cottage in Suffolk is just the place. Not only is there no wifi, but there is not even any electricity. Fear not, you’ll still have a warm and comfortable stay as the wood-fired range cooker provides plenty of warmth and hot water. With a roll-top bath, king-size bed and set within 4,500 acres of parkland; this is an idyllic spot for a relaxing getaway.
Attractive South Lakeland Cottage
This gorgeous stone cottage can be found in the quiet hamlet of Dowbiggin. There is no wifi here, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be well catered for. While you’re enjoying a break from the screens you can also enjoy the warmth of a wood-burning stove and a selection of books and games. There is also cosy underfloor heating, a lovely lawned garden and parking for two cars. Dive into your very own scenic hideaway and enjoy all the walks and wonders of Cumbria.
Delightful Pwllheli Cottage
This rural cottage in Gwynedd really is off the beaten track. Surrounded by stunning Welsh scenery there is no wifi here to distract you. Enjoy walks out in the fresh air and cosy evening beside the wood burner. There is a large garden, numerous local cycle paths to explore and Snowdonia National Park is only a 20-minute drive away. This is a beautiful spot to find some peace and quiet.
Splendid West Devon Cottage
This sheperd’s hut in Devon is the perfect retreat for two. There is no wifi and the property is surrounded by woodland. It is the perfect place to put the screens down and get back to nature. There is a woodburning stove for cosy evenings in, and outside there is decking with furniture, a fire pit and a pond. While you’re here, enjoy long walks in the fresh air and all that Devon has to offer.
Lovely Sutherland & Caithness Cottage
For a truly remote holiday, this Scottish cottage is just the place. The nearest corner shop is 15 miles away, and the last six miles to the cottage take you along forest roads. There is no wifi either so you can enjoy a break from all the screen time and enjoy your wild and wonderful surroundings. Choose from walking, mountain biking, fishing, and wildlife spotting. This is a magical place where you can enjoy the freash air and relax.
