If you like the idea of running your own bed and breakfast Hastings typically has several available at any one time. This seaside resort in East Sussex is one of the most popular in southern England, offering the usual family diversions, as well as several historical sights. It’s also easy to reach from London, and enjoys better weather than many other British seaside resorts. Owning a bed and breakfast can be challenging, yet satisfying and you’ll need to enjoy working with people, and making sure their stay is as enjoyable as possible. Daily chores include cooking and serving breakfast, cleaning and preparing the rooms, advertising and marketing your B and B, and taking care of the associated paperwork. A background in hospitality is helpful, but not essential and if you’ve ever stayed in a B and B, you probably know what makes for a memorable stay.
