The Little House

While there is a TV at this pretty stable conversion in Kent, there is no internet. And who needs it in this gorgeous neck of the woods? Book into one of the many popular gastropubs and explore the Farmer’s Market.


That view. I mean, wow. This Welsh stable overlooks the mountains and the lake of Trawsfynydd and is close to the castles and beaches of Harlech and Criccieth. No need for tech

The Lodge

The grounds are so beautiful, you’re going to want to Instagram your view immediately. But you can’t as there is no internet at the Lodge. Close to Woody Bay on the North Devon Coast, the Lodge is set in the grounds of a historic Manor House and has its own private swimming pool. Walk through the manicured grounds to a beach and ogle the craggy coastline.
