I live in the States near Chicago and all I know about British English is through watching british TV shows - a lot!
It seems that a common expression there about someone that is a recluse is something like - "He keeps himself to himself."
Police investigator: "Did you know the murdered woman next door?"
You: "No, sir, not well at all. She always kept herself to herself!"
This construction is not common in our side of the pond.
