Over 100 brand new B&B's are included in our new guide to wonderful Bed & Breakfast places across Britain. There's something for everyone here, from young families to young lovers, peace-seekers, walkers, cyclists, surfers and art and history buffs. Stay in a handsome townhouse or a quirky castle, a little terraced cottage or a university college, some are lavish, others simple. We look for character, authenticity and owners who love people and go the extra mile. Every place is inspected and selected by our roving team. We're trusted for our honest and lively reviews. Each entry is special in its own way. One may have fabulous architecture and inspirational views, another amusing hosts and delightful interiors; some have it all. Breakfasts will always be delicious: maybe eggs and bacon from down the road, soft fruits from the garden, homemade breads and jams, compotes and sausages. For this new edition we have included over 100 new B&Bs - many run by a new generation of owners bringing new ideas to the traditional B&B, many passionate about growing and rearing their own food, some offering creative courses in gardening and cookery too!
Prices range from GBP65 to GBP200 a night offering a wide variety of places to stay. Honest write-ups take the slog out of finding the right place for you, providing you with a trusted guide to the genuinely special places in Britain, be it somewhere perfect to take the dog, a child-friendly city bolthole or a gorgeous hideaway for two.
