Find a little romance
With your very own meadow out front and a woodland to the rear, Hex Cottage in Sibton is a thatched former forester’s cottage in deepest Suffolk, perfect for couples seeking off-grid rejuvenation with all the romance of storm lanterns and sheepskin rugs underfoot. The wood-fired range in the kitchen heats the cottage and provides piping-hot water. Couples will love the fairy-tale canopy bed, and for extra warmth on chilly evenings, you can light the log fire. Explore the estate on foot or by bike, plus there’s a private tennis court and clay pigeon shooting if you fancy. The heritage coastal towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold are just a short drive away. And don’t miss the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival from 3-5 November.
