Telling your story - Being selected

We’d love to hear about you and your Special Place, so please get in touch. If it all looks promising we'll pay you a visit. 

After a successful inspection and once we’re all happy with your write-up and details, we’ll put you up on our website as soon as we can. You can now celebrate being ‘special’, and start using our name!

A company with a difference - a little about us

We've been seeking out and celebrating Special Places since 1994, with our hugely successfuly guidebooks and now our popular website, too.

So what makes us different? We inspect, select and, a little later, reinspect all of our places. Our guests rely on us to handpick the most Special Places in Britain, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal and Italy, and to do so with integrity.
