Director, Chris Peck says “The B&B weekend accommodation is becoming increasingly popular over the long weekend periods.  Because of work and family commitments these days, most people can’t afford to be away for a week at a time.  Most people are opting for shorter holidays. The bed and breakfast holiday option is the perfect remedy.”  Peck warns, “It is worth getting in quick because B&Bs are likely to be snapped up over the long weekend.”
