The Most Unusual B&Bs in the UK


When you think of a B&B, you will most likely see frilly curtains, garish bedding and clashing wallpaper. However, there are plenty of wonderful and unusual bed and breakfasts dotted across the country for you to fall in love with.

St Curgis Church


You can guarantee you’ve never stayed in accommodation quite like St Curigs Church in Betws-y-Coed, Conwy. The B&B was converted from a 19th-century church, but has maintained the beautiful architecture, which is complemented by marble pillars and stained glass windows.

Inside the converted B&B you will find a cosy family home, which offers a four-poster room and a communal breakfast area. It’s worth a stay simply for the views of Snowdonia’s mountains. 



Old Lock Up Guest House

The Old Lock Up Guest House, located in Wirksworth, Derbyshire, was built in 1842 and originally served as a magistrate’s house, before it was used as a police station for 100 years. Many of the cells within the police station housed local criminals in the 1800s. The building now serves as a bed and breakfast, offering various guest rooms, including: the Magistrates Room and Solicitors Room.


The Magna Carta

We’re pretty sure the Magna Carta in Windsor will float your boat. This amazing B&B is located in an converted Dutch ship, and offers 4 comfortable en-suite cabins. In addition to amazing rooms, the B&B offers underfloor heating, a saloon, a hot tub and sun decks.

Duchray Castle


Forget what you know about B&Bs, because Duchray Castle will smash every misconception. This beautiful castle is located in the heart of Glasgow, Scotland, and was constructed five centuries ago. The interior also won’t disappoint, as the grandest bedroom offers a cosy log burner, whilst you can enjoy a bath or shower in the modern bathrooms.
