Fancy unplugging and enjoying a relaxing break, grown-up style? Pack a suitcase and head to Bethnal & Bec's adults-only studio retreats in the idyllic countryside location of Cottered in Herts.
Each beautiful and quirkily styled retreat is entirely self-contained, with its own garden and hot tub and fully kitted out with plenty of luxe touches for a pampering stay. Think king size beds, rainforest showers and double baths, to log burners and Smart TVs – so all you’ll have to concentrate on is chilling out. Hey, why not book yourself an in-room treatment with one of the recommended beauty therapists to help with that?
While there are plenty of things to see and do nearby, from country rambles and cultural sites and local pubs, the rooms also include Netflix, a stash of board games, vinyl record players and cinema screens to keep you occupied, so you won’t even need to leave the room!
Hungry? There’s an honesty pantry stuffed with tasty fresh and frozen foods so you can cook up a delicious dinner à deux, or if you’re feeling particularly lazy (and why shouldn’t you?) you can order off the dine-in menu or even book a private chef to come and do the hard work for you all in the comfort of your own room. You’ll even get a customised breakfast hamper loaded with goodies for the morning.
If you get bored of just relaxing in your private hot tub (perish the thought), why not sign up for one of the curated experiences Bethnal&Bec offers in partnership with excellent local businesses? These range from pasta-making and an introduction to sourdough to DIY floristry, learning to forage and shaking up your own cocktails. Perfect for mixing it up for a birthday or anniversary. You can even book a private chef to whip up your own three-course meal – does it get any better?
