If you’re looking for that taste of home and a hearty breakfast to help start out your day right, bed and breakfasts in Cheltenham provide a terrific option. Friendly locals typically operate B&Bs in Cheltenham, opening up their homes to guests visiting the area. These are especially lovely retreats for the individual traveller, as you often get the opportunity to meet other guests over a relaxing breakfast.
True to their name, each bed and breakfast in the Cheltenham area serves up a hot cooked-to-order breakfast, such as the full English, which typically involves eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes and sometimes even black pudding. Many of the B&Bs source the ingredients from local vendors, use eggs from their own hens or grow their own fruit and vegetables. Other breakfast items typically include a breakfast buffet with fresh juices, coffee, tea, yoghurts and cereals. And, a few places even make their own bread and marmalade.
