From secret beaches to remote restaurants, the Times reveal the greatest British spots off the beaten track. Included within the list of secluded retreats was Bryn Eglur disconnected from the modern world with a stay at this remote cottage that dates from 1755: there's no TV or wi-fi. What you do get is an almost perfect reproduction of a period property with wood-beamed ceilings, a grandfather clock, limed-washed walls an inglenook fireplace. There's another cottage near by but, there than that, seclusion is guaranteed.
