The eviivo Awards, now in its seventh year, shone a light on the best B&Bs, guest houses, hotels, pubs, and other independent accommodation that the UK has to offer.

The winners were selected by a panel of industry experts, who judged each finalist across a number of different criteria. Each winner collected a grand prize of £1,000 to put towards their property.

From a medieval fortified castle built in the 1500s, to a housekeeper who goes above and beyond for her guests, and a host that offers guests the freshest vegetables from her garden, the 2022 eviivo Awards had an eclectic mix of winners offering special experiences for their visitors.

George Clode, travel writer at the Daily Telegraph commented: “It was a real pleasure – but a genuine challenge – to judge the entries for the eviivo Awards.

All of them really showcase the character, quality, and sheer diversity of independent accommodation available across the UK and Ireland.

Every finalist could’ve been a worthy winner and I’d certainly be happy to spend a night or two (or even better, three or four) at any of the properties! All would make for a comfortable, memorable stay.”
