B&Bs and Independent/Family Run

Hello- I am interested in learning how you find B&Bs and independent hotels (besides AirBnb). Looking in Bath, Cotswolds, and London area. TIA for any reviews:)

Just google ‘B&B Cotswolds’ - you can easily tell which are the small, independent places, many of them in the owners’ houses . Actual B&Bs in London are likely to be out in the suburbs so there I’d look for a hotel.

Rick Steves guidebooks generally recommend that type of lodging. That's the first place I look.

I use booking.com. It lets you narrow lodging by type (e.g, B&B's), and you get reviews written by people who actually stayed at the establishment.

For something different have a look at the rental cottages offered by the National Trust, especially in the Cotswolds. nationaltrust.org.uk
