Bed and breakfast

When you go into Bed and Breakfast it can be difficult to eat well. You may have nowhere to cook or to store food. You may have to eat from takeaways or in cafes. It is more expensive to buy food in small amounts. This information will help you work out how to eat well and keep the costs down.

Here are some ideas of what to take with you (if you can) to make it easier for you and your family to eat better.  The ideas have come from other people and families who have lived in B&B accommodation themselves.  

  • Tin opener
  • Sharp knife
  • Cutlery-knife, fork, spoon, teaspoon (one set for each member of the family)
  • Crockery – plate, bowl, mug, etc, (one for each member of the family)
  • Pan
  • Cheese Grater
  • Toaster
  • Airtight containers-tins
  • Tupperware
  • Pan with a lid
  • Electric kettle but one may be provided

With this equipment you could cook lots of the recipes provided on this site, each one has been kitchen tested with group, so enjoy.
