Hex Cottage is our first ‘Lost Collection’ country retreat, a beautiful thatched forester’s cottage set within its own meadow and surrounding woodland. The cottage comes without electricity so our guests can experience undisturbed peace and a real sense of bygone times. However, the Esse wood-fired range cooker in the kitchen & dining area expertly heats the cottage and provides endless piping-hot water.
