New Year, New Career ?

The Christmas decorations are up, the lights are on, presents wrapped......are your thoughts turning to the New Year ?

Are you thinking about running a B&B or guest house ?

Our bespoke B&B courses are tailored to your requirements to enable you to get the most out of it. We do not do group classroom training, so our time will be entirely yours for the duration of the 2 day course. We do like our course participants to stay with us in our B&B if possible so that you can wholly immerse yourself in all things B&B - but we also understand that time and your availability and our availability in our rooms may conspire to prevent that, but don't worry, we have successfully run previous courses where participants have stayed in alternative accommodation.

Whilst we tailor course to your particular needs, there are some topics that we will always cover including setting up or buying your B&B, marketing your B&B and the day to day running of your B&B.

We also ensure we keep our courses up to date. For example in 2018, there have been major changes to data protection laws (usually known by the acronym GDPR) and changes to the regulations around package holidays - for a B&B this includes things like picking up guests from the local train station or arranging activities such as a round of golf - it may not seem like it, but 'package' covers more that just an all inclusive holiday in the sun !

Subject to availability we can run courses any time during the year except the Christmas and New Year period.

As always, please call to discuss your requirements
