Foreign Fields

beds abroad


If your taste for unusual places to stay is not confined to Britain, we have a few suggestions to make about exotic buildings in exotic locations. Freudians will find plenty of lighthouses and caves to fulfill their fantasies, the rest of you can cool off in a giant igloo or the county jail. We have slept in a few, but most we have not, so make sure you get the establishment's own brochure before you set off to sleep in, and on a block of ice way north of the Arctic Circle. It might be sensible to check with your intended igloo provider, to ensure that global warming hasn't resulted in a catastrophic case of ice cave droop! All entries offer B&B not S/C unless stated otherwise.

We are always interested in other peoples bed hopping experiences, especially where these take place in steamy climes and locations. Here are just a few hot ideas and some cool ones, from the spicier parts of the World:-
