Bed and Breakfasts

Staying in a bed & breakfast assures you a warm welcome and a homely atmosphere, in a small-scale establishment with individual character, a local feel, and - of course - a delicious breakfast provided. Beyond that, the bed and breakfast experience can take on many forms and guises - from luxury in the sun on Turkey's Aegean Coast to Yurts in Portugal, as well as plenty of charming, traditional properties across the UK, the rest of Europe and beyond, in both beautiful rural and dynamic urban locations.

We've discovered some green gems on our travels. On a trip to the South of France, George discovered a wonderful b&b in Avignon, whilst Anouk found that a bed and breakfast was the perfect bolthole for her Pembrokeshire Coast break. There are several b&bs featured on our list of top green places to stay in Britain, and you can find out which B&Bs made it into the list of the Enjoy England Awards for Excellence.

The Independent newspaper asked Greentraveller's Richard Hammond to recommend 10 bed and breakfasts for its guide to the 50 Best B&Bs in the UK, see which ones made it on to the list: Best Green B&Bs in the UK.
