A new type of bed and breakfast is growing in popularity across the UK.
According to the Guardian, Bed&Fed is a scheme that offered spare rooms to people looking for somewhere to stay - although people wishing to take part in the scheme may still wish to invest in comfortable white bed linen and wholesale towels to offer their guests.
From just £30 a night, travellers can stay in the spare room of the host's house and dine on a continental breakfast followed by a simple home-cooked supper, the newspaper explains.
Unlike a stay at a hotel or traditional B&B, the scheme allows people more interaction with the owner of the accommodation, which could prove useful if they are looking for inside knowledge on the place they are visiting.
Founder of Bed&Fed Annabella Forbes said that it offers "home from home" comfort.
Business travellers may wish to stay in such accommodation, after Opinions Matters research commissioned by Quadriga revealed that 86 per cent of corporate travellers preferred to stay in a hotel or B&B before an early business meeting than at home.
