Independently great

JUST over a year after being turned down for a romantic guide, a city B&B has been listed as one of the best 50 in the country.

Julia Cox was told in February last year that despite having luxury facilities, her boutique B&B at South Lodge in Wavendon would not be in a list made by hotel booking agency Mr&Mrs Smith.

But Julia has had the last laugh after her business was named in The Independent’s 50 best B&Bs.

She said: “We are not unique in being in the national news, nor are we unique in holding five star accreditation.

“But I believe we are unique in our contemporary design solution to help create the right accommodation space.

“It is absolutely critical to be able to work out who your customer is and then provide what they want.”
