Meet the trainer behind the course

Hello! I'm Karen Thorne

I'm the founder and owner of Bed and Breakfast Academy. I'm an experienced B&B owner, trainer, head cheerleader at the Yellow Duck Collection, dog wrangler, avid knitter, proud mother of Jess and wife to Rob - the one with the beard. 

I worked for British Airways for 16 years, where I was an IT manager, trainer, coach and facilitator.

When we decided to escape the rat race, move to the countryside and set up my own B&B in Shropshire in 2004, there  was very little support or information available for anyone starting a B&B. And I made an awful lot of expensive mistakes along the way.

I decided to combine my training skills with what I'd learned about running a B&B ( the hard way ... ouch ) to create a training course to help aspiring B&B owners like you create your best B&B life and to make sure you don't make the same expensive mistakes I'd made!

And Bed and Breakfast Academy was born in 2006.

It lovely to meet you!
