"We had a lovely recent stay here in BEC. From start to finish the experience was flawless, Chris and Vicky went out of their way to ensure we had what we needed and were able to cater to a specific request from us. We stayed two nights and cooked the first night then went to the local ‘The Bull’ the second night. Hot tub was lovely, my husband spent the entire time in there and then we wound down with the cinema screen in the room! Small touches were lovely like the free tipple of gin and whisky and you are surrounded by lots of greenery. We originally wanted to go on some walks but loved the room so much we stayed in! It’s a great romantic stay and we will certainly be back!"

"Just returned from a week staying in Bethnal with our two cockapoos.
It has been truly wonderful, an oasis to switch off, chill out & do what you want. The room has everything you need & more. Lots of places to visit and not far from Cambridge. Vicky & Chris are fantastic hosts who give a warm welcome.
We love it so much we have already booked to go back!!"

"Wish we had booked to stay for longer! The space is beautiful inside and out and we had the loveliest most relaxing time. Every detail has been perfectly thought out and make for a really unique experience. We can’t wait to come back! Thank you for having us x."

"We booked Bethnal&Bec for our wedding night and following night in July and we were so impressed with everything... the perfect getaway/hideaway so close to home! The little hamper of breakfast essentials meant we could have our first breakfast as man and wife in the privacy of our lodge and thank you for the thoughtful gift of complimentary prosecco! We would highly recommend B&B for a romantic getaway! We also visited a nearby pub, The Bull which is a 5 min walk away, for a delicious meal if you fancy getting out and about! We had a fantastic stay, thank you to Bethnal&Bec for making it special for us."

"Just spent a wonderful relaxing weekend in Bec, beautiful surroundings didn’t want to leave!
Spent the evening watching the sun go down with a glass of wine in the hotub fabulous!!
Spoiled ourselves with the food add ons, the local farm provides amazing steaks which the owners brought to our door, brilliant service. Can’t fault it, absolutely just what we needed to unwind can’t recommend it enough and we hope to get back soon. Thank you Chris and Vicki for your excellent customer service xx."

"Wow, just wow! Every, and I mean, every detail has been thought of here. From the personalised message at the car port and the birthday message you are made to feel very looked after by Vicky & Chris.
We stayed in Bethnal. I stood and gawped for the first 15 minutes...the decor is beautiful and the setting is so relaxing and picturesque.
Biggest list of staples I have ever seen, fridge, freezer and pantry stuffed full of artisan goodies.
Double rainforest shower, double bath that looks out to incredible views...candles...bath bombs.
Secluded hot tub made for two. Surreal being in the hot tub whilst it was snowing!
All state of the art technology...from mood lighting in the kitchen to the sensored nightlights in the bathroom everything has been thought of to make your stay...well, just so easy.
Bethnal caters for dogs too and was well stocked with bowls, treats and toys.
I have already recommended this glorious bolthole to many friends...my only regret is booking for just 1 night.
Oh well, Bec next time!"

"We arrived to a personalised message. When we came in the underfloor heating was on, the log fire was ready to be lit and the hot tub was warmed up and ready to get into. We had been provided with lots of staples like bread, milk, cheese , bacon etc. There were also foods and drinks that you could buy at a very reasonable price.
There was a twin bath and rain shower which were both lovely and dressing gowns were provided. A cinema screen and projector are available to use along with Netflix, I player and a range of dvds.
All in all we had a perfect weekend at Bec and can not wait to go back again!"
Jessika, December 2017
"Once we had watched the sunset from the hot tub, we had some tasty food from the pantry which is extremely reasonably priced, and snuggled in front of the log burner watching Netflix.
The complimentary food that is provided was very generous.
A beautiful view from the bath tub in the main room and the double shower was huge!
Over all the stay was so peaceful and relaxing and would highly recommend this beautiful get away."

"If you want to venture out into the country side, invigorating walks and subtle vistas await.
But you will not want to go much further than the hot tub or the apple orchard. This is a retreat. Shut the doors, put an LP on the record player and relax with the one you love. Cook breakfast or have a late, late lie in and maybe snack in bed with a box set. Take a luxuriant bath or simply relax by the log fire and stare at the stars.
If you need a break to de-stress, refocus or have quality time with your significant other then take a break at the Bethnal & Bec. Escape the rat race and wonder, like me, why you ever returned to reality!"

"Bethnal&Bec was the best break I have ever had. The retreat was perfect for me & my boys (2 dogs), the breakfast was amazing, netflix, cupboards full of everything you need...amazing shower...hot tub & perfect sunset walks. Bethnal&Bec relaxed, re-balanced & totally fulfilled all my expectations. Chris, Vicky & their team have thought of everything you could ever need to lock yourself away from the work. Highly recommend."

"We recently had a relaxing, romantic weekend away at Bethnal&Bec and it was everything we could have hoped for. A bottle of fizz was chilled & begging to be opened on our arrival along with a lovely welcome note.
There is a fully-stocked freezer of food & a fridge full of alcohol & soft drinks (it operates an honesty system), as well as plenty of interesting snacks.
The fresh breakfast goodies that are supplied free of charge were a welcome & generous touch.
We stayed in Bec & LOVED watching films in bed on the cinema screen, relaxing in the double bath with a garden view & really made the most of relaxing on a rainy day in the comfort of our spacious room.
There is also a hot tub & a lovely private garden overlooking the wild flower meadow & orchard.
It was obvious that a lot of thought & planning has gone into creating & decorating Bethnal&Bec. I would highly recommend it - you won't leave disappointed."

"We had the most amazing weekend break at Bethnal & Bec. The retreats are decorated in a style I would call ‘East London’ - for a city feel in a beautiful rural setting. Great facilities include well appointed kitchen, ambient lighting controlled by an iPad, controllable heating, very comfortable bed, lounge area and double shower. Loved the addition of the honesty bar and the record player, with an eclectic record collection. Perhaps the highlight of our stay was putting the music on, relaxing in the private hot tub and looking up at the stars when it was snowing. A really magical experience. We had a great time at Bethnal & Bec and would highly recommend!"

"I had the most fantastic experience at this place! The owners have literally thought of everything in order to make this an enjoyable stay; from the impeccable decor, he cosy wood fire, hot tub, the projector where you can watch netflix, free breakfast items, sundries, gin and whiskey, this place is a luxury retreat indeed. It was for my birthday, and the room was decorated with bunting, balloons and a cake! I wish I could live here! Hope to be going back very very soon! Thanks so much Bethnal and Bec!"

"We have just returned from an anniversary trip to Bec and cannot recommend it enough. If you are looking for genuine relaxation, I thoroughly recommend. It has a huge hot tub, a bath for two and a cinema screen that drops down so you can binge watch box sets to your heart's content!"
Alicia, December 2017
"We stayed in Bethnal and it was spacious but cosy, has absolutely everything you could possibly need and the complimentary treats were greatly received . You can tell a lot of love and attention has gone into creating this place and is worth every penny . I think I spent the first 30 minutes just looking round saying “wow they’ve thought of everything, look how cute this is”. Thank you so much for the amazing stay and starting off my birthday right. Plus, being able to watch Netflix in the bath whilst seeing the amazing view…that’s all I need to say. Thank you again x"

"This was a birthday treat for my other half...what can I say - we just didn't want to leave. Such a relaxing place, so many lovely things to mention. The log fire, the hot tub, the bath, the bathroom, the lighting...just all so amazing. Contact with the owners was fab. Already looking to book in the summer, just want to live there!!"
Holly, February 2019
"Cannot recommend enough staying at Bethnal, utter relaxation in luxury with every little detail covered. Awesome artisan products stocked in the larder, amazing decor, pizza oven, fire pit, hot tub and more! The dog even had a jar of treats waiting for him after he had a run around in the 1 acre paddock just through the gate of our private garden."
Natalie, October 2018
"The most wonderfully relaxing break! Every little detail has been thought about and the retreats have been kitted out to such a high standard. We pre ordered the pizza kit which was loads of fun making and cooking pizzas. We did this for a late lunch with some fizz when we arrived. We then had a lovely chilled afternoon and wandered down to the local pub "The Bull" for our evening meal which was delicious! The brekky supplies in the retreat were spot on - seriously good bacon! The design of the retreats (we stayed in Bec) is so cool and quirky yet so cosy and homely. It was so nice to get away and relax the minute we walked through the door - a perfect child free break! Thanks for having us Vicky and Chris."
Chloe, September 2018
"A perfect 1 night break. Ultimate relaxation. We had everything we needed - comfort, facilities, yummy food in the pantry, hot tub (!!) and the most calm/serene country views."
Katieeirwin, July 2018
"What a brilliant stay we had at Bethnal as a last minute visit with our puppy. We have highly recommended Chris’ accommodation to friends and family already and definitely planning our next visit. Brilliant place to bring a dog, lots of lovely pubs and coffee shops nearby. Very well thought out stylish cabin with the most incredible amenities. Can’t thank you enough for a lovely night stay. Just wish we could be back already!"
Millie, January 2018
"A truly stunning venue set in beautiful Hertfordshire countryside. Brilliant hosts. Highly recommend it. Relaxing break with country walks and country pubs."
Stuart, January 2018
"I would highly recommend this spot to anyone, Chris and Vicky have created not only an amazing space but an unbeatable experience! Located in a lovely village, with a top notch pub, this place offers a touch of contemporary chic luxury in a traditional and beautiful country setting. The perfect place for a romantic getaway or more, our apartment was cosy and self contained yet had everything we could dream of and more!"
