Getting Away From It All

If you fancy a self-catering cabin in wooded wilderness with no mobile signal, I have just the thing for you: Undercliff Studio.

Undercliff Studio

P and I just had a 3 day break in a studio cabin in the middle of the Undercliffs near Lyme Regis. Even I was surprised at how remote you can get; when I say ‘remote’, I mean ‘remote’!

We were in the middle of the wooded undercliff in the garden of Cliff Cottage, a pretty house right at the bottom of the Rousden Estate (a beautiful gothic-styled mansion), reached by a rather bumpy downward track. All we saw for days were wild deer, woodpeckers, buzzards, bunnies and birds galore. With no mobile signal and a less-than-reliable TV signal, we did nothing but read, sleep, chatter, laugh and make nice simple meals in the tiny kitchen area (which luckily had a pretty large fridge for everything I took to eat).

There is free WiFi so watch out for that if sensitive. They have to have something to make them less remote – the owners live there all the time! It is all pretty eco, though, apart from that. We drank fresh spring water via the tap and used solar powered energy when there was enough sun.

So, have a look if you fancy a real getaway/hideaway. Anyone know any others to go to?
