Here's What Others Are Saying...

Catriona Haskell-Ward, Millburn Bed and Breakfast, Isle of Skye

Karen... thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge, for being there for that extra advice when needed, for setting up the ‘B&B Academy’ family FB group no one could have planned for what this year has thrown at us all but we definitely couldn’t have got/get through it with out you and everyone in this group..

Clare and Dave Wright, The School House B&B, Shropshire

When we opened we soon realised just how much we had learned on Karen’s course. But her teaching doesn’t stop at the classroom – the course opens up a whole network of liked-minded people to exchange views and ideas with, so we are always up-to-date with changes within the industry. We would highly recommend Karen’s course if you’re thinking of getting into this very enjoyable and rewarding business.

Hi I'm Karen

I've run my own B&B, Hopton House, for over 16 years and I've been running bed and breakfast training courses since 2006.

My aim with the courses is to support aspiring bed and breakfast owners to create a business you'll love owning, and which guests will love staying at.

Support doesn't stop after the course, as I manage a thriving Facebook community, providing ongoing support and answering your questions

I run a B&B Marketing Membership for B&B owners who want to market their B&B authentically and organically without the overwhelm!

After marketing, my passion is for cooking. I'm working on creating an online breakfast cookery course, which will help you create amazing breakfasts that your guests and family will love, without the stress!
