Snap your last pic for the gram and lock your phone away for a 3 day digital detox. (Don't worry you can always reach us)



Relax. Do nothing. Do something and then return to the world completely recharged


Time for a change

With a growing frustration of the inability to switch off, Hector spent 2 weeks at a silent retreat in the Himalayas.

Ben is far less zen. However, after realising he was clocking up 14 hours of screen time a day and seeing Hector return completely recharged, they thought…

How can we get busy city folk to unplug from their devices and recharge without flying halfway around the globe?


An ancient remedy

Humans have always escaped to nature as an antidote to hectic city life. The issue is that now so many of us just wouldn’t know where to start.

We’re glued to our phones, inundated with push notifications & respond to emails at all times of the day.

We’re on a mission to help you unplug from your devices so that you can recharge.


digital detox [noun]

[dij-i-tl dee-toks] - noun informal

a period during which a person stops using their phone & laptop in order to relieve stress incurred from being over-occupied by overuse of their digital devices


Yup, we really do. With a padlock. 

Yup. 72 hours. No distractions, no annoying emails, no Instagram scrolling. Doesn't that sound incredible?! If you really cannot cope without your phone. for 3 days, we'll let you smash the locked box open but do suggest you seek help.

You’ll have a map, a compass and an old school Nokia. We are just a short call away to help get you back safely. We haven’t lost a single guest... yet...

The cabin is stocked with things to do from books to board games and Polaroid cameras. We don’t think you’ll get bored, and if you do… well, is that so bad? Check out this amazing TedTalk on the power of boredom. We think 3 days is the perfect time to switch off and recharge - some of our guests didn't even want their phones back.

Of course – our 3 night experience is the longest you can book directly but if you need a longer detox then just get in touch and we’ll create you your own offgrid experience.

Very! It’s on private land, with access only to you as our guests, and our wonderful landowners have about 10,000 chickens to protect. So they’ve got you covered too.

Train or car are the conventional options. There’s a train station (Audley End) 3 miles away with a good taxi service. There’s also parking available, it’s about an hours drive north of London in a village called Duddenhoe End. We’ve even had one person cycle from Battersea(!!) but that’s not for the faint-hearted.
