BGTW Talks Travel: Great British stays

There are few types of getaways more British than staying in a pub – boutique pubs with rooms, traditional inns, and affordable accommodation, all across the UK.

What does a stay in a pub look like now for couples, families, ramblers, dog owners, beer lovers and others? How does the personal touch in a smaller property combine with Covid-secure practices? What kind of experiences are available for your 2020 staycation?
