Maybe, but you'd have steep competition from the hotels who are all suffering in the recession and having to reduce their prices apparently. But maybe there is room in the market if you can offer something different ??? I guess its a matter of working out what your outgoings and costs would be and how you would attract your guests.

how do you no that thay do well with there bed and breakfast( any help !:D
Cos they're personal friends of mine.

However, unlike many opportunists who've never had any experience in the hospitalty industry, they've had a lifetimes's experience of running and owning country pubs/hotels in Britain.

So they came to the table with the cards already stacked......plus they work very, very hard at making it a success.

If you want to do smth like a B&B, as Jo says, you'll have to do loads of paperwork, apart from adapting or building a property. Obviously that takes money, but I think Jo and I are thinking of the time element too.
And before you open, after you open, and all the time you're open you'll need to do LOADS of advertising, not just have a web page; magazines, newspapers etc etc. I've seen so many business go under since I've been here (long before the present crisis) and I never saw any advertising for probably 90% of them.
