A dreamy thatched former forester’s cottage for two, electricity-free, candlelit and set in woods overlooking its own meadow. In Hex Cottage, built in the Regency ‘cottage orné’ (or decorated cottage) style, an Esse wood-burning range in the kitchen provides all the hot water and heating, though there are open fires in the sitting room and bedroom. In the kitchen, think original bread ovens, brick floors and butler sinks. Swing open the door to discover your own herb garden, store for the all-important logs and wilderness beyond. In the bedroom, candles and a fairy-tale canopy above the king-size Hypnos bed set the scene.

Think sheepskin rugs, open fires and quirky antique furniture mixed with contemporary touches. In the en suite bathroom, it’s all about the freestanding roll-top bath, zinc-covered vanity and woodland views through leaded-light windows. Outside, enjoy BBQs on the private terrace, explore the estate on Pashley bicycles or hold your own tournament on the tennis court open year-round (located on the main estate a short drive or bicycle ride away). Try your hand at paddle boarding or rowing on the serpentine lake, learn more about the nature that calls Wilderness Reserve home with our estate ecologist or practice your shot with world-class clay instructors. Wilderness Reserve is nestled in 5,000 acres across three river valleys in the county boasting some of the cleanest air in England, yet just a short drive from Suffolk’s celebrated heritage coast. Here, discover one of England’s finest piers at Southwold, enjoy famous fish & chips in Aldeburgh or make your own gin at the Adnams Brewery. For the adventurous, take to the waves in a rib from Southwold with Coastal Challenger, or visit Go Ape, Suffolk’s biggest tree top adventure. In the beautiful fir trees of Thetford Forest discover your inner jungle explorer by climbing rope ladders, swinging through the trees and hurtling down zip wires.
