Had the most perfect couple of days staying in the Bethnal lodge. The whole experience was fantastic from start to finish. Before arriving we received emails from the owners Vicky and Chris with all the information we needed for our stay, plus a list of the extras we could add to make our stay as perfect as possible. We arrived to find a gorgeous afternoon tea and bubbly on ice awaiting us, and a card explaining it was a gift from our family. This was a perfect start to what was to be a perfect couple of days. Vicky and Chris have thought of everything, from basic home comforts to quirky extras like the honesty pantry, record player and atmospheric lighting. It was like a little Aladdin’s cave of goodies. We spent hours chilling in the hot tub overlooking the orchard/countryside, relaxing on the sun loungers and building fires in the fire pit, all in complete peace and quiet and privacy. When not enjoying the outside space we snuggled up inside watching television and listening to records. The bathroom was just as well designed as the rest of the lodge with a huge walk in shower comprising of two rainforest showers. Not wanting to miss out on the opportunity to try out everything, we simply had to fit in a soak in the huge bath tub located in the main room with views out over the countryside and the television. We were gutted when our stay came to an end, we could have stayed much longer and will definitely be returning/recommending it to others. Wonderful rural retreat, perfect location, perfect hosts. Thank you so much for making our stay one we will never forget. More...

I surprised my husband to a weekend at bethnal&bec for our first wedding anniversary. I couldn’t have picked a more perfect destination, every little detail thought of and a quirky twist effortlessly pulled off throughout. Communication was fantastic via email and phone with a friendly laid back ‘we believe in lay ins’ approach. Felt right at home. Will definitely visit again and be recommending to friends and family ♥️ More...

Omg where do we start! From the minute we arrived everything was simply perfect. We stayed in the Bec lodge and we were not disappointed. This place is absolutely stunning and Chris and Vicky have thought of every single little detail it is all just so amazing! In the room we had been left a hamper of treats for us and the dog as part of our initial booking, prosecco on ice, beers snacks, dog treats and fresh steaks (which we enjoyed with breakfast the next morning!) It was such a personal touch with a handwritten welcome card too! From the decor, to the stocked pantry, the pre heated hot tub, breakfast essentials, Netflix and cinema screen and the blissful silence out in the courtyard (I could literally go on forever!) Everything is insanely beautiful, absolutely spot on. The only downside was having to leave!! Thank you so much Chris and Vicky you have created an absolute slice of heaven and we cannot wait to return! More...

Just home from the most amazing mini break to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Pure luxury, with lots of thought/detail put into making your stay as comfortable as possible. You don’t need to go out, as there are well stocked cupboards with items included. But other items you can purchase. The hot tub was lovely with peaceful views and sunsets. The cinema screen with Netflix was great for watching films. Or listen to vinyl records, which again a lovey touch. Luxury linens, towels, robes, slippers and throws, what’s not to like. We went to the local pub The Bull, food excellent. We also took a lovely walk to the windmill, through the fields via a footpath near the church. You can actually see the retreats from the field, and about 2 miles. Excellent communication with Marlen the PA, who always responded to queries quickly. Thanks Vicky & Chris for creating such unique retreats. We look forward to returning in the future More...

Perfect place to relax and unwind. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the decor was fantastic and the little touches were so unique. The surrounding woodlands provided a perfect view. We really felt relaxed and comfortable and wished we could have stayed for longer. Definitely will be returning for another trip !! More...

My wife and I loved every second of our wonderful two day minimoon staying in Bethnal. The weather might have been against us but nothing could detract from how amazing this place is. Storm Gareth was not stopping us getting in the hot tub!! We had an incredibly relaxing stay and I can't speak highly enough of what Vicky and Chris have achieved here. Don't waste time thinking about booking, just book it and find out for yourself! We'll definitely be back ❤ More...

If you’re looking for that well needed break and want to get away from it all then this is the place to go! Stunning views & real luxury treat for both us. There are so many lovely places to visit locally but we didn’t want to leave the room. Fully stocked fridge and freezer, hot tub, log burner (added coziness) and just so peaceful. Would highly recommend! More...

Me and my husband had an amazing stay at Bethnal & Bec. They have thought of every little thing, from the additional extras such as the popcorn machine or Marshmallows to toast on the fire and bath bombs in the bathroom. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the sun set, the hot tub (of course) and the cinema screen TV. We will definitely be staying here again!! Thank you so much for an amazing romantic night away.

Billy and I stayed at Bethnal and Bec in Feb 2019. I can honestly say it was one of the best nights 'off' we've had in ages... everything was thought of, pantry, minibar, giant TV with EVERYTHING you need on it..... and the way the rooms were decorated was just gorgeous. We had lovely burgers waiting for us to cook when we got there!! and the hot tub.. the HOT TUB.. it looks out over the beautiful countryside and you just feel so relaxed when you're there xx definitely recommend for a luxury stay xx More...

If you want tranquil setting with excellent accommodation and just to finish it off outstanding customers services with complimentary beautiful country walks this is definitely the place to stay in Hertfordshire. Freezer full of great foods to purchase, welcome pack with plenty to offer for all tastes, full equipt kitchen. Amazing cinema viewing if Netflix, there is just too much to mention in the accommodation. Lots to offer in the village and all main shopping just a short drive away. I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely place. More...

We had a lovely recent stay here in the BEC room. From start to finish the experience was flawless, Chris and Vicky went out of there way to ensure we had what we needed and were able to cater to a specific request from us (chocolate cake and strawberries to be left in the room). The room was extremely clean and has everything you need whether you are staying in or going out. 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 wined 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 ! Zara and Matthew More...

B&B was the best break i have had. The retreat was perfect for me and my boys (2 dogs), the breakfast was amazing, netflix, cupboards full of everything you need.. gin bar.. amaxing shower.. hot tub and perfect sunset walks. B&B relaxed, re-balanced and totally fulfilled all my expectations. Chris, Vicky and there team have thought of everything you could ever need to lock yourself away from the world #highlyrecommended More...

Perfect getaway for some relaxing down time! There is nothing Vicky and Chris haven't thought of, and I cannot recommend Bethnal&Bec highly enough - we've already booked to go back again!!

My husband and I stayed here over Christmas and we had an amazing time! It is such a nice place to spend quality time together as a couple. The facilities were great, especially the log burner, hot tub, the amazing bathroom, the projector screen and the well stocked pantry - we enjoyed the drams of whisky and gin! Lovely place in the countryside - they really have thought of everything! We will definitely visit again! More...

Just returned from a week staying in Bethnal with our two cockapoos Cara and Niamh. It has been truly wonderful, an oasis to switch off, chill out and do what you want. The room has everything you need and more. Lots of places to visit and not far from Cambridge definitely use the park and ride). Vicky and Chris are fantastic hosts that give a warm welcome and are there when you need them. There are some great country pubs local and definitely in a 15 mile radius that are dog friendly - The Sword Inn Hand, The Fox and Duck and The Cowper Arms are the ones we visited whilst we were out and about We love it so much we’ve already booked to go back!!

We stayed here a few weeks ago and it was the best place I've been too. The decor was incredible and every little thing was thought of. There were even personal touches on arrival. We stayed in the room with the projector which was pretty cool to watch a film on. You are able to have a fire burning outside as you watch the sun set and of course the hot tub is the best part!!! If you want a stress free night away then I Deffo reccomend.. Plus I think it's great to support small Businesses.. We can't wait to book our next stay xxxxx More...

Amazing cute little cottage house style with beautiful views of the country side. Their food and drink selection was great (we loved their mac and cheese) and we loved decor of the place. (Bathroom of dreams!) Totally recommended for a night away or two... (or three or four ) Chris and Vicky made me feel very welcome and I am looking forward to come back one day. More...

We stayed at Bethnal&Bec for my birthday and had an amazing time! It was a truly magical little hideaway which had lovely, thoughtful touches. Loved the high tech aspects with the lighting and heating, as well as the more rustic feel having the wood burner and roll top bath in the room. We did the pizza package which was loads of fun and very tasty. The walks in the local area are beautiful and Chris and Vicky recommended loads of great walks, things to do and pubs/restaurants nearby. There’s a fab array of snacks and drinks stocked in your room and yummy frozen meals to delve into in the freezer (we had a Thai red prawn curry and it was ). Overall one of the most lovely places I’ve ever stayed and I can’t wait to go back. Highly recommend!! X More...

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. The brekky supplies 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 :-) More...

One night away is just what the doctor ordered for us parenty type folks. In a world where we are all so connected we are becoming more disconnected to those closest to us. Soooo, Mascara-less i resembled an exhausted naked mole rat and Book of Dad ageing like a sexy version of Pablo Escobar in his later years, we were ready.... We have never needed a night away more. Vicky & Chris have considered every attention to detail in when putting together their luxury rural retreat offering @bethnalandbec .. There is an honesty bar and pantry, deliciously curated snacks and beverages, we pre-ordered a steak dinner which we knocked up after a rural walk taking in the picturesque Cromer Windmill -it was gorgeous, there's a hot tub, netflix, @avedauk products in the bathroom.. if you wanted a massage or have specific diet requirements that too can be catered for..They care and it really shows..We stayed in Bethnal, it was refined and sexy. Just how I like my rural retreats.... We were welcomed with a warm note and a chilled bottle of bubbles...they know us so well..After a restful sleep on a cloud of dreams we indulged in a cooked breakfast included in the cost and a rain shower for two (not at the same time, that would be silly).. four legged friends are most definitely welcome but leave the kids at home guys ok..?!

We stayed in Bethnal - such a fab place, I cannot recommend enough. I was fully chilled within an hour of arriving, we had everything we needed without having to go anywhere for 4 days. The dogs loved the field & we couldn’t get enough of watching sunsets from the hot tub, sitting by the fire pit & catching up on Netflix. Lots of wine & delicious local food were enjoyed & how can I not mention that beautiful bathtub! It’s not a question of if we come back, just when......❤️ More...

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. More...

Absolutely fell in love with this place. What a gem. We came for our minimoon and it was just so relaxing. Chris and Vicky were most accommodating and made every effort to ensure we had the perfect stay. There were so many personal touches and we felt so special from the minute we arrived. The pantry was easy to follow and the staple pantry on offer provided everything we needed - you could stay in the retreat for days on end without leaving!!! We stayed in Bec with the cinema screen which was awesome. There was Netflix too which meant we had films galore to choose from. The outside hot tub was so relaxing, we managed to use this both during the day and night, Chris and Vicky had this warmed up for us and ready on arrival. We added the pimp my pizza extra which was so fun. The dough was already prepared with all the toppings ready. We had fun rolling the dough, making the pizza from scratch and cooking in the stone oven outside. From the pantry, we tried the curry and samosas. HIGHLY recommended. The samosas were the best we’ve ever tasted, I just wish we lived closer so we could stock our freezers!!! Chris and Vicky include information for days out and local eateries too, so we knew where to go and what to do! We visited Hitchin and Letchworth. We recommend tapas for lunch at Los Reyes Tapas and coffee at Coffee 21- both were brilliant, we can see why they have been recommended!!! I could carry on writing an essay but i’m going to stop now. All in all, we could not have asked for a better minimoon and we are looking forward to coming to stay again - next time we’ll try Bethnal. Thank you again so so much Chris and Vicky. See you next time! x More...

We had a great few days at Bethnal and Bec for my boyfriends 30th birthday. Chris and Vicky were fantastic hosts and had thought of everything!

Didn’t want to drag ourselves away from this beautiful hideaway. We loved all the added food and drink luxuries and although not free, we were saved from having to find a shop and all were home made and of excellent quality. Even the dog treats! Home cinema, magazines, DVD’s, hot tub, lots of choice of drinks and snacks. All tucked away in this pretty little corner of England. Our dogs enjoyed the paddock with the owners’ dog as the weather was too hot to walk them far. Thank you to Bluebell for her fresh eggs! Can’t wait to come back � More...

Me and my partner visited Bec for a couple of nights recently and we both had a fantastic time. Vicky and Chris were brilliant hosts who were there if we needed them but also gave us privacy. The home cinema was awesome and so was the double bath and rainforest shower. The location is perfect, I loved how there was a list of recommendations on where to eat/explore near by. Such a relaxing and beautiful little break - we will certainly be returning. Thanks again Vicky and Chris! More...

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 More...

I booked a surprise 2 night stay for my husband’s 40th at Bec, and what a weekend we had! From the moment I booked until the day we arrived, communication from Chris and Vicky was absolutely spot on. We struck gold with the bank holiday weather - this is a gorgeous place to be in the sunshine - but we both agreed that it would be just as nice even if the weather isn’t on your side. There’s so much to love - from the quirky and luxurious decor and the hot tub, to the extremely well stocked pantry and the breakfast. Not forgetting the chickens and the fantastic local pub just a short walk away! We haven’t had a childfree night away for over 3 years so this was some long overdue time away to just enjoy our own company. We had simply the best time. We hope to be back! More...

Just got back from two nights in Bethnal and this is without a doubt, my favourite place. I almost don’t want to leave a review because I don’t want it to become so popular that I can’t rebook � The bathroom is out of this world with a huge double walk in shower, the rolltop bath with the letterbox window which gives the perfect views of the sky and sunset (as well as a brilliant view of Netflix) with lights around, the super comfy sofa and little table, the kitchen with little touches of home are brilliant. Even though we brought food and drink, there is such an amazing pantry, we ended up buying some stuff anyway! The hot tub is lovely, and the garden area is such a little sun trap with loungers and chairs. I honestly cannot wait to rebook, such a lovely setting and never felt so relaxed in my life. The balloons and the card they gave my partner was just super sweet as well! Thanks again Vicky & Chris! More...

We have just returned from a 2 night stay for my partners 40th birthday and it was perfect! We stayed in Bec and the lodge is amazing with perfect views across the countryside. We just wanted to relax and chill out and we couldn't have asked for anywhere better. They are well stocked with everything you could need and the mod cons like the projector screen tv and hot tub means you don't have to go out unless you want to. Everything was well communicated before we arrived and any questions I had were answered quickly and the personal touch's really made a difference. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking of booking a stay Thank you again More...

Everything about this place is amazing and we can’t wait to go back! There’s so much to keep you entertained while you unwind and chill out! Record player, cinema screen with netflix and more, hot tub, huge double bath, loads of food!!! Their own hens eggs that were supplied were yummy, as well as the bacon and sausages provided by the farm! The fact they provide all the stable food for free and so much more means you hardly need to bring anything taking the stress out of planning your trip, just pack some clothes that’s all you need! The location is perfect, you’re surrounded by fields makings a great view from the hot tub! Chris was so helpful and the personalised birthday message and card when we arrived was such a lovely touch! Can’t wait to comeback! More...

We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary with our Labrador in the Bethnal retreat. We weren’t disappointed, greeted by a lovely sign in the car port and card in the room. The amenities and place were excellent. We were emailed a walk route which lead us to a farm shop and welcoming pub. The hot tub was great, watched the sunset with a glass of bubbly. We also took advantage of the local beauty therapist (details provided by Chris & Vicky). So to summarise we had an amazing relaxing stay, so we would highly recommend the venue and the hosts. Thank you Chris & Vicky xx More...

Just got back from a night stay at the Bethnal, as you can see doggies felt right at home! what a wonderful little gem to have so close to home, it was the perfect birthday surprise and to top it all off we were able to bring the kids �, in fairness we actually didn't need to bring anything with us, everything was thought of! The hot tub was great, we came on a beautiful sunny day and had some drinks in the hot tub when we arrived, what else could you ask for? The only thing I would say is for us, if we were to come back, the enclosure for the dogs would have to be a bit higher as they could have easily Jumped over the fence and had chicken for breakfast, so we had to keep them on leads all the time, which was a shame, the enclosure is secure but if you have bigger dogs they could jump through the gap. All in all a perfect retreat for a much needed break, thanks Vicky and Chris! More...

25 March 2018

Just amazing !! Stayed for 2 nights in Bec and had such a lovely time, such a welcoming and warm place to spend some quality time as a couple. Such a range of fresh products and the pantry list your provided to use is great, loved that they provide a sample of whisky and Gin to drink as well and any Additional goodies you require are provided at a reasonable and affordable charge like ice cream and crisp etc. The beds are so comfy and we slept so well so nice to wake up with the sunny view over the countryside. Hot tub was such a luxurious feature and we spent majority of our time in there, so nice to be outside in the cold air but submerged in the 40 degree water!! There are so many other features that the retreat provides and I would recommended Bethnal and Bec to anyone wishing for a break away from busy life. Thank you so much Vicky and Chris for providing such a beautiful place to stay! More...

My birthday trip away was made so special by Chris and Vicky and their beautiful venue. I even got a personal happy birthday sign, goodie bag and card on arrival. Including a bottle of prosecco and free meals! The room was so comfy and all the mod cons you need from a Bluetooth record player, to a water proof wireless speaker, from smart tv with Spotify, to hot tub! Everything was amazing including the two person bath, beautiful views and two rainfall showers. We are feeling well rested and very blessed after our visit. I just want to be back there! Excellent job guys! More...

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/gourmet 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 the 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 � More...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Bethnal & Bec for a weekend, and to say it was perfect in every way would be a massive understatement. The day we were checking in was very cold and the pipes to the accommodation froze. They done everything they could during the day to sort them and by the time we arrived, they had been fixed. They don’t d offer us alternative times to stay and complimentary goods. The location is absolutely stunning, and the accommodation is amazing. We took our 3 dogs, who absolutely loved it to. The local pubs are great, and most allow dogs. We would recommend Bethnal & Bec to anyone and will definitely be going back again. David & Carly More...

My Wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. Originally I booked 2 nights but we loved it so much that we booked an extra night when we were there. Everything you need is there. You literally don't need to leave (unless you want to). We ventured out a couple of times to two local pubs. One within walking distance. It was nice to get out but even better to get back to the retreat. This place is perfect if you need time to wind down. We stayed in Bec, with a cinema projector screen, twin bath tubs, fireplace (which I loved lighting), huge hot tub, underfloor heating, record player and cooking facilities. I've probably missed stuff out. We had a technical issue and within minutes the owner came to our rescue and sorted the problem out. They knew our personal circumstances and even gave us a complimentary bottle of wine which was lovely. We would definitely recommend this place. It really is luxury at its finest, not just your standard relaxing getaway. Don't hesitate to book. More...

Me and my fiancé stayed in Bethnal in-between Christmas and new year and it was the most relaxing and romantic couple of nights away. It snowed while we were away and the view over the fields as the sun set while in the hot tub was priceless. Chris went above and beyond for us to make our stay special , we requested the pizza oven which is a must , before hand chris asked if we would like a pizza pack which we did , due to the snow and Christmas Chris wasn’t able to get any dough from the local shops so they made it by hand for us so we weren’t disappointed. We took our dog who loved running around in the fields and going to the local pubs. I found it hard to find somewhere luxurious where we could take the dog so when I came across bethnal and bec we were very excited and this place exceeded all expectations. If your thinking about booking it stop thinking and just do it , I promise you won’t regret it. More...

What a lovely, unique, wonderful place. Thank you very much Vicky and Chris for a lovely birthday get away. It was pure relaxation and they have truly thought of everything.

We stayed at Bec this past weekend for our anniversary and what a lovely weekend it was. It was an impulse booking and one that we do not regret. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful, replied quickly to messages and dealt with any queries we had in a timely fashion. 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! More...

Me and my partner stayed here in Bethnal and we was not disappointed ! It is set in a beautiful village and the views from the retreat are stunning. We was welcomed with the hot tub ready to go and a few free glasses of whiskey and gin to enjoy ! 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, especially enjoyed the duck eggs � 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 � More...

A excellent experience and a great place to be. My fiancé surprised me with a wonderful weekend for our 3rd anniversary. The place was spotless, very spacious and cosy. There was lots of food to choose from and the hotel owner is very helpful and will guide you through your stay. Hot tub was amazing! We loved it and spent most of the time in it � Also on my first proposal � we were surprisingly impressed to see that, at our door step a lovely and tasty champagne was waiting for us to celebrate � This is a beautiful place to spend as a couple and not only. We will definitely be back! Thank you for everything! Adelina and Tariq xxx More...

We spent an intimate weekend in Bethnal & Bec and would recommend it to couples looking for a discreet romantic getaway. The hosts are a gorgeous and very helpful couple who were always on hand to assist but they also knew when to disappear. The rooms are tasteful, comfortable and have everything you will need. You can park up walk in an hide yourself away from the world for a few days. If you want to venture out into the country side, this part of the world is truly what we all have in mind when think of England's green & pleasant land. Its William Blake's Jerusalem with good pubs, invigorating walks and subtle vistas. 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! More...

Stayed here for two nights in October , oh my- Beautiful place !!! Amazing communication from the very beginning , incredibly helpful and polite owners. The attention to detail is stunning and the personalised message on arrival defiantly set mine and my partners stay off to a great one . Remembering that I mentioned it was my birthday and offered a late check out and a lovely birthday message 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 Emma and Mike x More...

We have just returned from an anniversary trip to Bec and cannot recommend it enough. We were on the cusp of booking a couple of nights in an amazing hotel in the Cotswolds when I was recommended to look here and so glad we did, not least because it was better value for three nights here than two in the Cotswolds. If you're 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! Bec is really eclectically styled, so very different from your standard pine lodge. They've thought of everything, right down to the artisan pantry with food and drink options at reasonable prices. The staples that are included without charge are great too (including the gin!). We can't fault any of it and the communication with the owners was brilliant - it's the sort of place you really want to go back to! If you actually get out of your dressing gown, there's a pub 5 minutes walk away and a massage therapist next door; both of which we visited and would recommend too. In short, we had a brilliant weekend away - some much needed R&R from two small children and a great way to celebrate a special occasion! Go there, go there now! More...

Stayed in Bec for valentines and had the most wonderful time. The setting is a perfect getaway for a couple, double bath, waterfall shower, cinema screen, hot tub, trendy decor and the view! Absolutely everything has been thought of, the pantry, the cold drinks, different tiples, equipped kitchen/bathroom. It was the perfect mini break for some luxury and relaxing! Can't wait to go back again, I didn't want to leave! Thank you so much Vicky and Chris. More...

I didn't stay here, but was booked to take some photos. I can honestly say that the places & hosts were lovely. The location is nice, quiet and overlooks huge fields. I saw the adorable "welcome hamper" you receive upon arrival. The interior design is stunning. A cross between modern and vintage. Very rustic looking as well. Dog friendly too! Would highly recommend as although I wasn't a guest, I really really wanted to be! � More...

My fiancee and I along with our two dogs stayed recently during the soft opening. Had a really pleasant few days away. With a detailed email set of directions and plenty of info on what we would have to use and how to use it all, we found the place very easily and had no troubles settling in on arrival. The covered parking in the courtyard with individual welcome sign was a nice personal touch, and with the amount of games, entertainment, gadgets and fully stocked kitchen, pantry and drinks cabinet our lodge was a very homely feeling place. Theres plenty of quirky and eclectic decor and features to make it interesting and a nice place to stay in. We were really impressed by the variety of food, drink and kitchen supplies included in our stay at no extra cost. It meant plenty of options on what we could cook ourselves or if didnt fancy cooking still had the wide selection of tasty sounding choices from the locally pre made meals in the freezer. (Or some treats from the pantry cabinet!) With all that to choose from and plenty of things to do, either time in the hot tub, board games or watching netflix or a dvd, we had no need to leave our little chill-out pad during our stay other than to take in some of the views walking the dogs on the paths leading off the secluded paddock out back. We wouldnt hesitate to stay again sometime. Perhaps to try out next door instead! More...

My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic stay at Bethnal and Bec this weekend. They’ve thought of everything. Loved the jacuzzi, the views, the log burner, the cinema screen, the record player, the comfy bed....and all the basic provisions they included which enabled us to make a delicious fry up in the morning to help my hangover ;-) More...

Wonderful to be part of the Bethnal&Bec journey - the boutique villa had it all. From the moment the accommodation was booked, Chris and Vic were attentive to the finer details - ensuring that upon arrival, everything was tailored to our needs; from the fresh sea bass to the yoga mat. Locally sourced produce adorned the fridge (fresh Thai sauces, burratini, dairy free pesto amongst them) and cabinet (plant based health foods, artisan chocolate and avocado oils etc.), accompanied by a super selection of wines to savour the evening's pink sunset with. The sophisticated grey tones in Bec's walls and floors are sprinkled with minimalist vintage, and modern pieces alike - the decor has clearly been balanced in thought - the perfect blend of comfort and aesthetic. The different aspects of the room enabled a relaxed viewing of Blade Runner (the SMART TV is loaded) on the 2-piece sofa, to a long soak in the double bath tub...the induction hob and 'pick your mood' kitchen lighting system make cooking a delightful experience. The double doors opened out to an incredible view where we enjoyed a yoga session, hot tub muscle recovery (space for 4!) and just beyond, winding paths taking you into wooded area and long rural walks to explore the area. @Yvette & I look forward to a longer stay next visit...I'm sure the experience will be further enhanced :) More...

So friggen good that we extended our stay for an extra night! You've got everything you need; lovely locally sourced food and booze, a jacuzzi, awesome sunsets, country walks and pubs, and a bloody great projection screen that pops down for a good old veg session. Loved it. We'll be back!
