Highlights of the Bed & Breakfast Courses Include…

This course is just for you…

Whilst there is a skeleton framework of information which we always cover, because our bed & breakfast courses are for one group at a time, we can make them bespoke to any specific requirements you have, enabling you to extract maximum value from your course.

Practical Focus

We will walk you through breakfast preparation and service. We discuss room preparation and servicing. We will offer tips to help you manage your time, your suppliers (e.g. Out of Eden), your B&B working day and other regular commitments so you run your business and it doesn’t end up running you.


Our bed & breakfast courses cover all aspects of marketing a B&B or guest house including how to set up your own website, working with the big online travel agents and working with social media. We also look at traditional offline marketing, together with quality assurance and how to obtain and manage reviews.

It’s your business…

We look at self-employed working, business planning, obaining finance (e.g. from Stewart Hindley – we have no affiliation), managing finances, record keeping, the legal framework and ‘The Pink Book’, always with a keen eye on making a profit and enjoying your new life.

B&B Know How
Bed & Breakfast Courses – Outline

Thinking of a change of job or a Lifestyle change? Dreaming of a different way of life and being your own boss? Our bed & breakfast courses are aimed at anyone thinking about running a B&B or Guest House, whether by taking on an existing business or starting from scratch.
Although a 2 day course, we do encourage participants to stay with us for the course, arriving by the evening of the day before, so that we can welcome you and have an informal discussion about the course and how it will pan out over the following 2 days….and set you a couple of simple exercises to get you thinking straight away!
