The Foaling Box

The Foaling Box is the newest addition to Bethnal & Bec Luxury Stays. It's the biggest of our adults only retreats and packed with sustainable luxury features that will make you never want to leave. We think it's the perfect spot for a luxury UK mini moon or baby moon.

The Foaling Box Build ...


Work on The Foaling Box finally commenced in June 2021... some 3 months behind our anticipated schedule.

We are proud to say that The Foaling Box has been 90% furnished with recycled pieces, or with furniture destined for landfill.

Despite hurdle after hurdel, we powered towards the finish line & welcomed our first excited guests on 1st October 2021, exactly 4 years after we opened our original retreats.
