Bed and breakfast holidays. Tours & holidays in 2016 & 2017

There's just something tastier about having food cooked for you, especially after a good night's sleep which is why bed and breakfast holidays are such a tempting prospect. Rural settings always seem to add to the ambience around breakfast time with flag stoned floors and kitchens opening onto farmyards just giving you that lovely air of healthy relaxation prior to setting off to explore or just laze around, as the mood dictates.

Bali eco lodge bungalows in Indonesia
I hesitate to write this review for selfish reasons. Why? Because this holiday is so wonderful I'd rather keep it a secret! Situated on the southern slopes of Mt Batakaru in remotest Bali, this place is a pocket of paradise, far removed from the ravages of the 21st century. Having spent a week there I did not want to leave. (more)Daphne Donkin

A memorable vacation to a unique land. Our host was outstanding. He will cater to all flavors of veg, but we had no trouble getting him to feed us vegan or nearly-vegan cuisine. All delicious and filling. (more)Richard Stone
I would highly recommend that bed and breakfast to anyone who needs some time away from the crouds and from their lives. I felt like staying even longer as Phil (the host) made my stay a very pleasant one and kept giving me insider-tips where to hike out to or what to do. He was very helpful. (more)Hanna Leipold
From £28 - £60 per person per night
Walkers accommodation in the Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Memorable parts? The hospitality shown by the hosts Rebecca and Andy, who welcome you warmly into their home. The meals were fabulous and the packed lunches the best yet. Tips? Stay longer than we did, do more walking than we did, it will be worth it. Local benefits? Yes - we walked into Aviemore, and took the local steam train back, had a drink in the local pub, bought goodies from the local store and visited a nearby village tearoom. Overall rating? Excellent,... (more)Stephen Brown

Everything was memorable!

Como B&B accommodation, Italy
Memorable parts? The hikes around Lake Como and Cascina Rodiana itself. The house is amazing and the owners have put a lot of effort and energy in renovating it, thinking about environmental aspects and interesting little details (check out the window shutters) in doing that. I stayed in the old part of the house with a lovely spot of a big fireplace and a small window which was a perfect place to read. During nighttime, the high windows closed so that the room became completely dark and... (more)Kristina Mδnd
From €80 - €180 per room per night
Sussex shepherds hut B&B, South Downs, England
Memorable parts? The most memorable was the lack of excitement!! What we wanted was peace quiet and lovely countryside and we got it in buckets. Tips? Take all your strain and stresess and they will fully blow away by the fantastic place, the shepherds hut. Bring a healthy appetite. You are going to need it for the lovely pub lunches. On a practical side an ordnance survey map, walking shoes and a camera and all the clothes you would need for the British weather. Other than that,... (more)David Green
From £100 - £120 per accommodation per night
Rural Crete holiday villa, Greece
Memorable parts? The drive to Panokosmos, once we had left the main autoroute was exciting. The road wound up into the hills and the last 200 yards the road was narrow and hair- raising but what a fantastic place to reach - brilliant hill top home with the most fantastic views. Looking out over the mountains and valleys each morning never ceased to impress us. Panokosmos is a place to escape to - to relax in and just 'unhook' yourself from the daily madness that could well be your daily existence.... (more)flis hughes
From €100 - €230 per accommodation per night
