Could hotel supplies transform farm into guest house?

Could hotel supplies transform farm into guest house?

Britons who believe their home is spacious and attractive enough to share with others may wish to consider transforming it into a guest house, particularly if they live in a farmhouse that benefits from stunning views.

The Guardian's Patrick Barkham writes that a historic farm building in Wales has recently been restored and opened to the public as a guest house after it inspired its original owner to sample the good life.

Thomas Firbank purchased the property in the Dyffryn Mymbyr valley in 1931 and wrote a book detailing his experience of running the sheep farm. The house is now cared for by the Natural Trust.

"For all the freedoms of Snowdonia - and the shops and tea rooms of Betws-y-Coed, six miles down the road - it is tempting to confine yourself to the farmhouse," Mr Barkham says.

People who own a farm with outbuildings could consider kitting them out in new furniture, linen and wholesale bedding and renting the space to guests during the summer months.

They could also provide a bed and breakfast deal, which may see them boosting their own income, while sharing their home and surroundings with visitors.
