Do you enjoy going on holiday but feel like a change from staying in the impersonal hotel chains? Why not consider a Bed and Breakfast? As the public become more discerning about the standard of accommodation that they demand, the hospitality industry has had to respond. Forget your old pre-conceived ideas of Bed and Breakfast style accommodation you might have and start considering the modern version which often include great locations, spacious and luxurious rooms, gracious hosts, fabulous breakfasts and the sort of peace that you would never experience in a large hotel.
You may be concerned about the idea of staying in somebody's home when all you want is some peace and quiet. Experienced hosts will sense very quickly as to whether you are a guest who wants to be left alone or whether you are happy to mix.
The B & B industry has been making radical changes over the past decade. As the public desire different styles of accommodation, the B & B market is responding by offering what people are look for whether that be luxury, privacy, a great location or just a change from the impersonal hotel experience.
There is such a variety in the style of accommodation various B & B's can offer. Whether you are looking for a honeymoon destination, a romantic get away, a family style holiday, a reunion or even a business conference, B & B's can cater for it all.

When did you last stay in a bed and breakfast? Perhaps you have fond memories of childhood weekends spent travelling to picturesque villages across the UK or more recent trips and excursions away from the city.
Staying in a B&B can be a rewarding experience offering homely surroundings and a relaxed atmosphere. They can be a welcome respite for weary travellers or for those taking short breaks. If you like the idea of really being at home with your business then running a B&B could be perfect for you.
A B&B is different from a hotel in that it will be a place that basically gives you a bed to sleep in and your breakfast. No gyms, no health spas and no concierge service. It is also different in that your home is at the centre of it.
“It’s different from other small businesses in that it’s domestically based and you’re living with the business,” explains Janet Beale, who runs The Bed & Breakfast Business course in Kendal, Cumbria for people wanting to start their own B&B. “The majority of our students live in their home. We address the issue of having your domestic privacy invaded, as the business becomes interwoven with daily life.”
