At Further Afield we believe in inclusivity and we’re here to champion those who offer a warm welcome to every traveller. If a property is on our site, it means you’re guaranteed a wonderful reception and relaxing stay.

You’ll also be guaranteed a great deal by booking direct, as Further Afield do not charge commission.


We’re proud to bring you trail blazers, early pioneers and those who just do things differently, in their own style.  They may be the first to explore new neighbourhoods, break design and hospitality moulds or simply breathe new life into a tired resort.  All are hand-picked for their style, quality and a relaxing atmosphere.


Our aim is to expand the collection, however we carefully consider the quality and style of every property which appears on the site.  We know you don’t have time to trawl through websites looking for the buried treasure, so we do all the hard work for you and only profile those properties we think you’ll like.

We’ve visited many and others have come to our attention through close friends and colleagues Further Afield travellers whose judgement we trust.

It’s not about ticking boxes.  We do have some clear criteria for quality and service but, more importantly, it is about personality and spirit – places and people that can help rejuvenate tired bodies and souls.

If you know somewhere that you think should be part of the Further Afield collection then let us know and we’ll check them out
