Dorset Cereals is making it easier than ever to enjoy a foodie escape around the UK with its unique selection of B&Bs and their remarkable food offerings, as showcased in the Dorset Cereals B&B Awards 2016.
The UK is spoilt for choice when it comes to food – from gourmet pubs to traditional tearooms, and plenty of delicious home-grown produce; there’s no better time to explore what’s on offer and unwind on a gourmet retreat.
From homemade preserves and freshly baked bread to a hearty full English, these B&Bs cater for everyone from the discerning diner to wannabe foodie blogger. With many providing the option of afternoon tea and delicious dining, you won’t even need to limit yourself to breakfast.
Each B&B offers a unique and memorable experience, and all have recently been shortlisted for the Dorset Cereals B&B Awards 2016. The awards aim to celebrate everything that makes British B&Bs special. Categories include Best Overall, A Dog’s Best Friend, Quirky Character, Friendliest Host and, of course, Breakfast Like No Other.

1) Enjoy a feast at The Wellington Arms
The Wellington Arms is a beautiful award-winning pub and bed & breakfast based on the Hampshire/Berkshire border. Previously voted no.2 in ‘Best Places to Eat in the Countryside’*, visitors can relax in the knowledge that they are guaranteed to enjoy a truly scrumptious meal courtesy of chef Jason King, who is listed as ‘Best Pub Chef’ in the Good Food Guide. The Wellington Arms also boasts four gorgeous rooms, perfect for unwinding in after a long, muddy walk (or after enjoying one of their famous, hearty meals!).
2) Fill yourself up on the Big Breakfast at Hay Barton
Hay Barton’s motto is Big Beds, Big Baths and Big Breakfast, and they have the awards to prove it. Offering homemade and locally produced dishes, from Cornish Orchards apple juice to sausages and bacon from the Kernow Sausage Company, the breakfasts are worth waking up for. With freshly baked cakes available for afternoon tea each day, Hay Barton is a treat in more way than one. Guests are able to burn off those extra (delicious) calories with a walk along Cornwall’s iconic sandy beaches, or over a game of tennis at the B&B.
3) Marvel at the veggie spread at Yewfield Guest House
If you’d rather steer clear of meat dishes, Yewfield Guest House is the bed and breakfast retreat for you. This vegetarian B&B also offers self-catering accommodation for those who are able to resist the remarkable breakfast spread, or are simply inspired by the local fresh produce. A dinner at Zeffirellis shouldn’t be missed, with live jazz music or a film screening available to accompany the award winning pizza and pasta.
4) Enjoy breakfast in bed at The Reading Rooms
For a truly luxurious weekend, look no further than The Reading Rooms in Margate. Offering a room-service breakfast, feast upon an indulgent spread without having to leave the comfort and cosiness of your bed. With a range of tasty choices from eggs to fresh jams and pastries to name but a few, the only problem is being spoilt for choice.
