Sawday stays, Europe & UK

sawday1

Sawdays feel more like friends. Many people have used their books over the years for trips to France, using the details to book, then the book to find their way there. Now all the same reviews and details are online.

'More than just a bed for the night,' says founder Alistair Sawday. 'We believe in what we do, passionately and honestly. We love all things local and independent, and seek out quirkiness and creativity. We reject the bland, the corporate and the impersonal. We select only the most special places and owners.' All properties are inspected and selected

'We are making new discoveries all the time,' he goes on. 'New places and new owners, wonderful people we'd love you to meet. Our choices are ours alone, and of course feedback from our guests is hugely important. We've met every owner, seen every bedroom and bathroom and, on our lucky days, eaten the food.'

The lists include B&B & self-catering properties, hotels and inns, tree-houses, cabins and yurts, and more

Many properties are what Sawday calls 'local champions'. When you stay in a special place, you'll know exactly where your breakfast egg came from, and which farmer reared your bacon. You'll enjoy home-made imaginative meals produced with flair and care.

Staying in these places helps to keep independent artisan producers afloat, as the owners support these local champions. Helping to sustain rural economies is one of the most rewarding aspects of Sawday's work, they say.
