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.

"I loved the farmhouse’s homely atmosphere, and the fact that guests all dine together at 7pm. The quality of Nanette’s cooking also far exceeds what you might expect at a B&B."

""This is the ultimate 'relax and unwind' destination. Miles away from even the hint of a busy road, the green fields seem to stretch on forever in all directions. The accommodation may feature some truly luxurious interiors, but it is also the warm, homely atmosphere (and delicious home-cooked food) that no doubt keeps guests coming back to Roundhouse Barns.""

"It is not surprising that Brynhonddu won the 'Best B&B in Wales' award as voted by overseas guests - this is an ideal accommodation for those looking to immerse themselves in Welsh history and culture. As Keith put it, there is "no one reason to come here", and the information he and Carol make available means it’s very easy to get out and enjoy the Brecon Beacons."
"This Grade II-listed building is perfect for couples and/or walkers wanting a relaxing, luxurious break in a green-conscious environment. With Wordsworth’s lakes as the backdrop, the relaxing, peaceful and well-decorated cottage should recharge your batteries."
