Ever thought opting out of the rat race, quitting your job moving to the countryside and getting your own bed & breakfast, well if you have you are not on your, in fact over half of women polled put this down as there dream job.
The research released by the Dorset Cereals B&B Awards reveals this is a dream shared by women nationwide, with over half (57%) admitting that they would like to run a B&B in a British holiday destination. This number rises in London, where over two thirds (64%) of women admit to hankering after just this.
Furthermore, the research reveals that over a third (37%) of British women believe that running a B&B would be easier than their current or last job, particularly among those under 25s (53% were in in agreement).
The research was commissioned by the Dorset Cereals B&B Awards, which were established in 2015 to celebrate wonderful and unique places to stay at in the UK. The awards honour Britain's breadth and variety of B&Bs - from beautiful and quirky to rustically charming or magically modern. Venues are nominated and voted for by the public, and each month one fantastic B&B out of hundreds will receive a special monthly prize. All shortlisted B&Bs are entered to be in with the ultimate accolade in the Dorset Cereal grand final later this year.
Following Brexit, holidaying abroad costs on average £300 more per family than it did before Britain voted to leave the EU. As the pound fell in value and families have been forced to spend more on accommodation, flights and food many have opted for a 'staycation' this with an increased number of visitors from overseas choosing Britain as their holiday destination due to favourable exchange rates. Just last week, Teresa May announced a £40 million fund for tourism project, as she encourages Brits to take a 'staycation'.
