Alyson and Simon Tuxworth, The Old Stables B&B, Shepton Mallett

"Taking Karen’s B&B Academy course was by far the single most important thing that we did when we embarked on our B&B journey.

We had read books and articles about B&B ownership but nothing came close to giving us the real insight more than this course did.

Karen covered things that we didn’t even know about – online travel agencies, channel managers, how to spend your marketing money effectively, the Pink Book to name but a few.

Karen doesn’t leave anything out and she definitely doesn’t sugar coat B&B ownership either."

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

"When we opened The School House we soon realised just how much we had learned on Karen’s course and it gave us the confidence to relax and enjoy our new adventure right from the start.

But Karen’s 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."



Mark and Debbie Smith, Ty Bae B&B

"It is truly one of the most extensive courses I have been on and her go to ‘take away bible’ has proved to be an invaluable ongoing reference document. To anyone considering running a Bed & Breakfast, I urge you to attend the course – even if it puts you off running one! As it was, armed with the additional knowledge from the course, we opened our Bed & Breakfast in April 2017 in Anglesey and haven’t looked back. Even now, we reference another source of information… Karen’s Facebook ‘B&B Academy Past Course Attendees’ in search of answers to questions. This is a group of serious B&B’ers who happily share their knowledge with everyone. This is a great course and rich in content… and I thoroughly recommend it."
