We’ve found the U.K.’s most romantic rural retreat

By  |  0 Comments

Sometimes we need a night away with our loved one – away from the kids and daily grind, to reconnect and revitalise.

Fashion Forensics has found the perfect getaway of Bethnal & Bec, a luxury, adult-only rural retreat located in the village of Cottered in Hertfordshire.

The property consists of two dog-friendly self-catering units (one called Bethnal and the other Bec), custom-built and beautifully designed, with incredible attention to detail.

The rooms are very secluded with a private garden area boasting stunning countryside view and a private hot-tub, perfect for relaxing in with a glass of bubbles. Each have a fully stocked kitchen, pantry and wine cellar. If you don’t want to cook, just grab one of the pre-made locally sourced meals from the freezer, pop in the oven and relax.

The focus there is definitely on doing just that, the rooms have underfloor heating, Google Nest control, iPad with environment control, Netflix loaded TVs and luxurious ensuite bathroom with a rainforest shower. They even have a doggie pantry with luxury health treats for your pampered pouch, locally made organic bath bombs and a cool retro vinyl record player with wide choice of music to choose from.

The two properties are slightly different, Bethnal boasts an in-room rolltop bath and Bec has a flip-down cinema screen, so you can choose one to suit your preferences.

The retreats are located by extensive footpath and bridleway networks, so guests can explore the beautiful local villages, enjoy the nearby country pubs and take in the spectacular countryside landscapes.

Owners Chris and Vicky Saynor relocated from London (Bethnal Green and Tooting Bec), with their four children. They personally designed each element of both retreats with items sourced locally wherever possible and are planning on building an additional unit within the next year, we can’t wait to stay.
