Further Afield

Further Afield

Hand-picked gay friendly places to stay

Further Afield is an independent collection of boutique hotels, B&Bs and holiday homes, bursting with individual personality and style. Importantly, all of our property owners welcome everyone: straight or gay.

Further Afield is based in the UK and was launched in 2010 at the same time as the furore around gay couples being turned away from B&B’s in the UK.  Four years later the UK celebrated the passing of gay marriage in England, Wales and Scotland. But we know that many gay and lesbian travellers worry about the welcome they will receive at their holiday accommodation, especially when travelling off the beaten track.

We are proud to champion trail blazers, early pioneers and those who just do things differently, in their own style. They may be the first to explore new neighbourhoods, break design and hospitality moulds or simply breathe new life into a tired resort. Above all, we are passionate about style, quality and a relaxing atmosphere. We handpick places for the comfort and quality they offer. All of them are friendly, open and welcoming.

Why use Further Afield:

  • No extra fees for you because you book directly with the owners. You will pay the best rates that appear on the hotels website and very often we also receive exclusive deals and freebies, which you can benefit from.
  • Carefully selected and researched by us for you. We turn away many more than we take on. Tightly controlling the quality is key for us and so to are transparent descriptions, especially about location and the owners themselves.
  • Over 50% of our collection is gay owned but all our places welcome everyone; and none of our places are exclusively gay.
  • We have eyes and ears all over the world, so we often hear first about that fab new place first. Don’t forget to sign up for our newsletters of new finds and then you will be in the know too.

So just another company making money from anyone. Not restricting its business and being exclusively LGBT - and they do not deal with gay venues but only mixed venues, so not offering anything to those who own and run LGBT venues...

This does not supporte LGBT business's...
