Holiday rentals specialists Owners Direct, is seeing an increase in the number of ‘boutique B&B’s’springing up on their site

When it comes to bed and breakfast accommodation the days of musty rooms, burnt toast and squeaky beds are a thing of the past and instead it is a luxury option favoured by discerning travellers who expect only the best when they are away.

Holiday rentals specialists Owners Direct, is seeing an increase in the number of ‘boutique B&B’s’springing up on their site and they are becoming a popular choice for holidaymakers of all ages looking for a last minute short break or a change from self-catering accommodation.

With flexible accommodation options, competitive prices, great facilities, luxury furnishings, prime locations and welcoming owners with insider knowledge, the B&B makes the perfect base for a quick trip, weekend away or annual holiday.

Angela Southall, Marketing Manager of Owners Direct, commented:“In addition to our wide range of self-catering properties, we have an impressive selection of B&B options on the site that are of excellent quality and have great reviews. Whilst traditionally the B&B has been at the heart of English tourism, increasingly we are seeing more properties popping up across Europe and owners are increasingly competitive with their offerings. From swimming pools and spas, five star cuisine, king-size beds and beautiful gardens, they now represent the cream of accommodation and are not to be sneered at.”

So here are just a few of the great bed and breakfast options currently available on the Owners Direct website:
