Adrian and I bought No. 2 Bentfield Causeway in 2014, the main residence is a 4-bedroom Victorian house which dates back to the 1830’s and was originally a Victorian Pub called ‘The White Bear’. The other side of our central courtyard (which accommodates up to 6 cars) we had what was then a run-down coach house and stables in desperate need of restoration.
From the moment we saw the property which is nestled within the beautiful conservation area of Bentfield End in Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex, we both shared a vision of renovating the outbuildings and creating our own Spa and luxurious apartment whilst balancing family life with our 4 children and Nelson our British Bull-dog.
We spent the following 18 months applying for planning permission and satisfying the requirements of the conservation department. The restoration itself wasn’t without its problems as we had to install pipework under the car-park area from our home to the outbuildings, which was all carried out during the wet and cold winter months. This often left us without water and heating in our own home and resulted in a confusing array of pipes which looked like a spaghetti junction. Not an easy time for me as by nature I’m a very clean and tidy person and I’ve never seen so much dust in my life! However, as a result of our detailed involvement in the restoration, we know every inch of the BB Spa from the underfloor heating in our Wet-room to the well-kept original beams and glass roof, to the oak flooring and hand built bespoke oak doors. It’s that attention to detail that I now bring to all the treatments that we provide here. When you come to BB Spa you will receive excellent service whilst embarking on the ultimate journey of relaxation and tranquility.
There’s a charm and uniqueness to the 18th Century Bentfield Beauty Spa, described by many of our clients as a calming and beautiful well-kept secret. With my knowledge, experience and expertise, we believe we have created an environment and service which will take you on an amazing & relaxing journey.
Thank you for taking the time to read ‘about us’, I look forward to meeting you.
