UK Honeymoon Packages

There is no hurry to jet off, and with the romantic one bedroom, candlelit Hex Cottage in a quiet corner of 5,000 acres of Capability Brown landscape, there is the perfect spot for a mini-moon on the Wilderness Reserve estate.

The thatched former forester’s cottage sits in a quiet corner of the estate overlooking meadowland by the woods. Authentically electricity free and idyllically set, Hex Cottage has been described as an ‘English gingerbread house’ and is a step behind the pace of the real world. Stay cosy with sheepskin rugs, roll top baths, open fires and hypnos beds.

Reconnect over long meals by candlelight, with a large Esse stove warms the cottage and can be used to make big stews or light bites. An apple crate of homemade bread, milk, eggs and fruit will be waiting for you upon arrival so you can forget the shops and leave the real world behind. Explore the 5,000 acres of private parkland on Pashley bicycles or find gentle competition over a singles match on the tennis court open year round. 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. Couples massages can also be arranged on site, followed by a walk to find the Kim Wilkie swimming pool – and hot tub.

Flower petals can be strewn on the bed, and extra touches arranged just for your perfect honeymoon.

Go further afield and take a day trip to charming Walberswick for a pub lunch and seaside walk, or amble along the traditional pier at Southwold and enjoy fresh catches from the Sole Bay Fish Co. Think sheepskin rugs, duck down duvets, roll top baths and open fires to end your day. If you are ready to be spoiled arrange for our black book of local chefs to serve white label three course meals and breakfasts, or perhaps keep it low key with a homemade casserole for when you arrive.
