Inside your Bethnal retreat

  • The most coveted  feature of Bethnal is the roll top bath set at the end of  the bed. Take a luxurious soak whilst enjoying views of the surrounding countryside through our unique post-box windows. And if you've had your fill of the countryside views you can also watch TV from the bath!

  • Arguably the most important part of your stay Bethnal features a super comfort king size bed complete with high thread count sheets. 

  • The bathroom has a double rainforest shower with complimentary Bath products. Towels, waffle robes and slippers are  also provided.

  • Underfloor heating and mood lighting make your retreat as cosy or cool as you like. 

  • The 43" Smart TV is set up to enjoy Netflix, BBC iPlayer or log into your Amazon Prime account. Perfectly placed to watch TV from the bed, sofa or roll top bath. Please note that Bethnal does NOT have a cinema projector screen.

  • Free superfast WiFi

  • Our vinyl record player can be paired with the Bluetooth speaker provided, to enjoy our eclectic range of music in your retreat or in the outdoor  hot tub bath.

  • Your self catering kitchen features fridge, freezer, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, oven & hob. Although we are self-catering accommodation, we offer our Bethnal & Bec staples pantry as standard and our unique Honesty Larder system. This system gives you access to a large selection of snacks, drinks, frozen meals, ice creams and locally made Gin & Vodka. Just pay for what you enjoy via our honesty system on your in-retreat ipad. 

  • A breakfast box will be provided for you to enjoy during your stay, select from our hand picked local selections at the point of booking.

  • Or you can add to your stay with our very popular pre-order Dine-In food from making your own pizza to delicious locally farmed gourmet burgers. Just browse the options and pre order at the time of booking.

  • Bethnal is dog-friendly so you're welcome to bring your dog along to the retreat. We have a thorough cleaning regime ensuring that the retreat is perfect for both those with and without dogs. 

  • Relax and unwind in your private outdoor Whirlpool bath whilst taking in beautiful views over the Hertfordshire countryside. Our outdoor baths are so much better than Hottubs ..... freshly drawn water to your desired temperature, no chlorine so enjoy your favourite bath salts or bath bubbles, and with lights and jets - the warm stays warm for an hour.

  • Slip into your waffle robes and slippers once you're done. 

  • Make use of the double day bed in the summer or winter. Perfect for soaking up some vitamin D in the summer or for getting cosy around the fire-pit in the winter.

  • Enjoy breakfast or dinner from your patio table.

  • Let your four-legged friend get in on the fun in the dog friendly fenced garden 

  • Park in our private undercover carport.
