Luxury adults-only retreats with stand-out interiors, private hot tubs and glorious views out over the Hertfordshire countryside.
Bethnal & Bec are two adults-only retreats nestled in rural Hertfordshire, perfect for a beautifully grown-up get away. With artistic interiors, sumptuous bathrooms and private patios - that come complete with the all-important hot-tub - it’s a sublime place to base yourself for some exquisite down time. And with everything from beauty treatments to a well-stocked artisan honesty pantry (which includes all kinds of goodies from local gin to buttermilk sea salt fudge), there’s all you need for some perfect pampering.
Both retreats have open-plan sleeping/living/kitchen areas with stunning views out over the surrounding countryside. With polished concrete floors, vibrant textiles and colourful artwork, both retreats ooze style. Beautiful sofas are ideally positioned to take in the view or flat screen Smart televisions (that come fully loaded with Netflix and a great selection of DVD’s). Bec also comes with an additional projector screen so you can watch your favourite movies from the comfort of your own bed. A woodburner, drinks cabinet and a fine selection of board games make for some wonderfully cosy nights in. And for music lovers, there’s a vintage record player that connects through the bluetooth speaker both inside and out - perfect for enjoying from the hot tub.
The kitchens are both sleek with stylish strip lighting. Small but perfectly formed, there’s all you need to cook up a full English breakfast or romantic supper. The helpful owners even provide a well stocked breakfast hamper - with fresh bread, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, baked beans and local bacon (vegetarian and vegan options are also available). And store cupboard staples such as rice, pasta, flour, condiments, cornflakes, tea, coffee are also included. There’s the option to indulge yourself further from the honesty artisan pantry that offers up everything from locally made gin and vodka to frozen ready-meals, olives, nuts, chocolate and ice-cream (to name but a few). If you’re feeling that you’d rather skip on the cooking altogether, then the owners also offer a dine-in menu or can arrange a private chef.
The bedroom areas are equally stylish with beautiful lighting, crisp white linen and statement textiles. Bethnal retreat offers up a roll top bath at the end of the bed that is fit for a queen - and with a post-box window, you can soak up the views directly from the bath.
The bathrooms are both gorgeous with Bethnal having a large double walk-in rainforest shower and Bec with its own large bath (complete with a post-box window) and walk-in shower. And each comes with Aromatherapy Associates products, towels, waffle robes and slippers.
Outside, both retreats have their own private patio, dining table, sun loungers, fire pit and hot tub. And with the most stunning view, it’s a great space to relax - from enjoying a morning cup of coffee to late-night star gazing.
The rural location means you can enjoy romantic walks or bike rides directly from the door. For relaxation, the owners can arrange beauty treatments with everything from a massage to private yoga lessons in the orchard. And with a plethora of cosy pubs and restaurants, you won’t be stuck for places to eat out. If you feel like venturing a little further then Cambridge is a 30 minute drive away and London is just 25 minutes by train.
