Foster Grant Sunglasses are giving away an off-the-grid weekend stay in Hex Cottage, Suffolk. With its thatched roof, rustic interior, and enchanting woodland setting, the cottage is like something out of a Disney princess movie- and it will certainly feel like it, too.

And with no electricity, you’ll spend your evenings snuggled in front of the fire by candlelight.
