Further Afield

Looking for an inspirational getaway? Then look no further than LGBT specialist, Further Afield.

We are often told that the gays love to travel. And yes we do, but while much of Europe is now ‘gay marriage’ a go go, we know that gay travel comes with some concerns especially when staying in hotels off the beaten track.

When we first met, we entered the world of romantic mini-breaks. Like Bridget Jones, we knew that they happened in the British countryside and featured log burning fires, long walks and romantic meals in quaint pubs. This was all many moons ago. Our relationship survived its journey into the British countryside and we have deleted the memory of the shuffling and uncomfortable owner of the boutique hotel whose discomfort with us was never communicated but clear for us to feel. And we prefer to remember the wonderful hotels, owned and run, by warm, friendly and caring people, gay or straight, with nothing but complete respect for us and our relationship.

Out of these experiences, we created Further Afield which is our collection of stylish gay owned and gay friendly hotels. We launched just over four years ago and now our collection includes over 250 hotels and gay friendly B&Bs in 22 countries including England, Italy, France, Scotland, Spain and the USA. They range from uber-contemporary hotels with state of the art design in city destinations including London, Paris and New York through to simple but romantic hill top boltholes for two in the hills of Spain and Italy.

So go on, take a tour round our collection the next time you want to travel and explore with confidence. And to celebrate the birth of gay marriage in England, Wales and Scotland, we are just about to create a new collection of places to get married and honeymoon, so look out for that too.
