If you have a very Special Place to stay, we would love you to think of joining us. Take a peek at our brochure and let us explain why you should.
Yours - in hope that we meet before long.
Alastair & Toby Sawday
Guests trust our choices. Our stamp of approval works brilliantly in your own marketing, too.
We’ll show off your photos alongside a well-written, sparkling description of your Special Place.
Books and Apps
We’ve sold over 1.4 million guidebooks, and more recently launched our Pubs iPhone app. Our guides are much loved and set us apart.
From time to time we arrange informal regional gatherings. They are a great opportunity to meet us and fellow Sawday’s members.

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!
Character, charm and authenticity
Good conversation, humour and a sense of fun
All sorts of buildings, from the crumbling but dignified to the modern and stylish
Open-minded, friendly owners who love welcoming guests
Free-range pets and children
Hardly any rules or regulations
Our guests are an uncommonly loyal audience who trust us to find them a place to stay. They visit our website over 2.7 million times per year.
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.
