We can help you find genuine gay friendly hotels, accommodation and B&Bs. We like exploring and discovering, often off the beaten track, and finding the right place to stay with personality and a warm welcome can be a challenge. The internet provides a wealth of choice but often fails to distinguish real quality and character from the rest, and the phrase ‘gay friendly accommodation’ is often overused and meaningless.
When we use the term gay friendly, we simply mean that each of our hand-picked properties, in addition to their quality, location & service, provide the same welcome to their gay guests as they do to all others. We also believe that ‘inclusivity’ works both ways and so none of our properties are exclusively gay.
We launched in January 2010 with just over 30 properties in the UK and we now feature over 130 properties in eight countries. Our collection is growing and expanding all the time but we tightly control the quality of the places that appear on the site which come to us through our own visits or from trusted sources.
As we have grown we have forged relationships with reviewers in different parts of the UK and in other countries who act as our eyes and ears.
The Further Afield office is based on a small five acre farm near the town of Hay On Wye on the English Welsh border. This is where the Further Afield core team meet on a regular basis.
