The detail

Lock away your phone and completely recharge with a digital detox at Rockells Cabin. Just over an hour away from London, Rockells Farm is perfectly located for busy city dwellers in need of a break from their screens. Upon arrival, your phone is put under lock and key for the duration of your stay to give you the chance to escape from endless notifications and reconnect with the world around you.

The cabin is located on a 400-acre farm with no other buildings in sight. Inside, it’s modern, spacious and simple, kitted out with everything you’ll need for a comfortable, relaxing stay without any digital distractions. The luxurious bed is set under the big window, stretching the entire width of the cabin and showing off those stunning countryside views. Sit up in bed with your morning coffee and see if you can spot some wild deer or rabbits roaming through the fields. There is also a kitchen complete with gas hobs, a fridge and utensils. Bathroom facilities include a rainfall shower and a Scandi Superloo.

On arrival, your phone really is locked away in a box with a padlock. Your Digital Free welcome box includes everything you’ll need to get started, such as a custom map to get you exploring the area and some postcards to send to friends and family. There’s also a Polaroid camera so you can still document your trip the old fashioned way. You’ll also find books, cassettes and games to keep you entertained with zero screen time.

While you’re at the cabin, you have the chance to truly disconnect and relax. There’s no pressure to do anything at all, you might just want to curl up with a book in front of the wood burner. Or you can grab your map and head outside to explore the forests and rolling hills of the local area. Maybe lace up your walking boots and head to one of the nearby pubs such as the Axe and Compass, for a cosy meal. If you have an EA Fishing licence, you can book a spot at the beautiful lake on the farm which is surrounded by weeping willows and stocked with carp and silverfish. The nearby market town of Saffron Walden with its pretty and colourful houses, rich history and independent shops and cafes is also well worth a visit.
