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!
We stayed in Bec to celebrate our wedding anniversary for two nights across the early May Bank Holiday weekend.
I have to say, our great impression started before we even arrived. The fantastic confirmation email with all of the info you could want to know about Bethnal & Bec itself, as well a great list of recommendations in the surrounding areas helped set the scene for what was to come.
The thing that stands out the most about Chris & Vicky is how well they thought out every single element of the retreats. From the interior design (such a fantastic mix of gorgeous items which are both luxurious & functional), to the kitchen (which is stocked to perfection with store cupboard staples as well as treats, booze & meals), to the bathroom (cannot remember the last time I spent that long in a bath), to the garden space (outdoor dining, sun loungers & of course the hot tub).
We definitely lucked out with the weather but we also both commented that even if it had been raining or snowing we would have been more than happy to remain holed up inside Bec.
We barely moved from the moment we arrived on the Saturday afternoon to when we begrudgingly departed on Monday morning...which after a pretty full on year was exactly what we needed.
I honestly cannot say enough good things about this place. We cannot WAIT to get the chance to book in for another visit.
We know that you guys will just go from strength to strength...we will just need to make sure we plan far enough in advance as I can see you guys being fully booked before long.
