National B&B Week 2019

18th-24th March 2019


Whether you’re a boutique B&B, seafront guest house, or cosy inn, we want all independent hosts and hoteliers to join us to celebrate National B&B Week!

What is National B&B Week?

Did you know that there are over 20,000 B&Bs in the UK, and that they generate over £2 billion annually to the UK economy? We think that’s something worth celebrating!

That’s why in 2018 we created the UK’s first National B&B Day. Thanks to the efforts of all the fantastic B&Bs and industry partners who made it such a great success, we’re going bigger for 2019! From 18th-24th March we will be flying the flag for B&Bs across the UK for an entire week, to raise awareness of and recognise the hard work of independent hosts and hoteliers and their incredible contribution to the hospitality industry.

Our goals are to:

  1. Get as many holidaymakers as possible staying in B&Bs over National B&B Week
  2. To raise the profile of the independent accommodation sector.

We want everyone to know about B&Bs and how they are the perfect place to stay. We’re working with a major PR agency, and will build excitement with a range of promotional activities throughout the week to show the world what an amazing industry this is. We’re also working with partners and sponsors to encourage visitors to stay in a B&B so that they can enjoy and celebrate this truly authentic and traditional holiday experience.


“Our B&B’s are world-class.   Four of TripAdvisor’s top five B&Bs in the world are in Britain and this is something that we want to capitalise on. Britain is open for business and National B&B Week is a great opportunity for us to showcase this dynamic sector. I hope we can encourage even more people to support British tourism and experience the superb places on offer all across the nation.”

Minister for Arts, Heritage, and Tourism

Why National B&B Week needs you!

We will be inviting all independent hosts and hoteliers to take part in National B&B Week. All you need to do is give prospective holidaymakers a great deal for coming to stay with you during National B&B Week. 

It could be a discount on their stay, a very special breakfast, a free bottle of champagne or sparkling wine in the room or free tickets to a local attraction. Whatever it is, we want to tell everyone about it, encourage everyone in the UK to celebrate National B&B Week with you and to show potential guests that independent accommodation is better!
