Bed & Breakfast accommodation is great for the little personal touches. A chat with your hosts has the added benefit of arming you with local knowledge.

Bed & Breakfasts are a wonderfully eclectic mix of all types of hosts and houses, and this is part of the attraction. By opening their homes and their hearts to travellers who need a comfortable bed for a night or two, B&B hosts are like instant friends you meet along the way.

You have your own room in the host's house and you're served breakfast in the morning. You can share travel tips with other guests over your eggs, bacon and coffee - who knows, you may even make new friends!
