Want to make a bit of extra money (when it suits you)?Created by Charlotte in Saving for you
Just when one thought that guest accommodation in the UK couldn’t be more varied, unhealthy a little website called Bed&Fed was born. Bed&Fed, buy pills | puts the icing on the cake in terms of friendly, affordable accommodation. The website offers an ever-increasing network of budget-beating ‘home from home’ guest rooms across the UK, where guests can enjoy a kitchen supper, a comfy night’s sleep and a simple breakfast, all from £35 per person per night. Additionally, Bed&Fed is a fantastic way for people to make some extra income as Hosts, and as such is absolutely ideal for any grannies who don’t want to run a full-time business but want to make some money now and then, in a fun and sociable way.
A brand new Host Christine this week commented, “I love the Bed&Fed concept. We’ve been looking at doing B&B through the ‘normal’ channels but concluded that out lack of en-suite facilities and our wish not to stick guests away in a dining room when we have a lovely farmhouse kitchen ruled us out from Tourist Board certification.” Nicky, who has been a member of Bed&Fed for some time now said, “there are just so many reasons why I joined the Bed&Fed network. It’s a great way to make some extra money, it’s flexible because I can say when I am not available, it’s the easiest way to host as I am making supper anyway, oh, and you don’t have to do a dreaded cooked breakfast which can often be so wasteful and makes for so much washing up!”.
The reviews given by guests for this type of homemade hospitality have been consistently fantastic. But what kind of guest can you expect? A comment left on Bed&Fed’s Facebook page is a great indicator: “We had a lovely B&F guest to stay last night. Very chatty and fun – and he brought a lovely bottle of wine with him. He was very complimentary about the comfortable bed, our home, the supper and loved playing with our dog. Perfect guest.”
Bed&Fed has survived its first year of business when 99% of start-ups are laid to rest. Why? Perhaps Bed&Fed’s success comes from its personal approach to business, expelling corporate methods in favour of friendliness and interaction with its database of Hosts. Belonging to the Bed&Fed Community is fun: a cookbook of ‘Bed&Fed Recipes’ is in the pipeline, the ‘ChiefChick’ (Annabella herself) blogs and tweets, the website has animated videos and a even a catchy jingle. In short – it has spirit.
If you enjoy cooking and company you might like to know that Bed&Fed is now recruiting new Hosts – you pay £70 – will receive 15 months for the price of 12, as well as a £40 wine voucher from NakedWines and other special treats. PLEASE QUOTE GRANNYNET WHEN REGISTERING. To do so, click here.
