A pocket-sized guide for anyone who has ever thought of renting out their spare rooms for a little extra cash
In 1980, Amy Willcock moved from the USA to the UK with her parents to enter the world of the B&B. The project that started as a retirement amusement for her parents grew into a thriving business of three B&Bs and a hotel. When Amy married Jeremy Willcock she stayed in the business and they now own the Michelin-starred George on the Isle of Wight, a pub and two other hotels. Amy runs lifestyle and Aga workshops, and writes for Aga Links and The Shooting Gazette. She is the author of three bestselling books- Aga Cooking, Amy Willcock'sAga Baking and Amy Willcock's Aga Know-How.
"With the general rush from city to country idyll, more and more people are thinking about setting up B&Bs. But having a big house with a couple of spare rooms is not a guarantee of success. This rather good book could change that...In an easy to read Q&A format, she deals with various thorny issues such as star ratings and tipping, and goes into incredible detail on everything from how to make a bed to how to fry and egg on an Aga...Her book is well worth reading before you make the leap." * Observer Travel *
