A Brigstock B&B has been named as the fifth best in the world, according to TripAdvisor.

The Swallows Rest received 264 “excellent” reviews out of 264, cementing its place in the top 10 internationally.

Owner Sam Read said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received this globally-recognised accolade and would like to thank all of our guests who have so kindly completed reviews.

“Our philosophy has always been ‘we don’t do ordinary’ so it is wonderful for this to be recognised.”

Five of the top 10 B&Bs in the world were found in England.

A spokesman for Visit England said: “It is fantastic news that five of England’s B&Bs are rated by travellers in the top 10 globally.

“This continues the upward trend we’ve seen in recent years demonstrating that our tourism, accommodation and service is not only exceeding customer expectations but up there competing with the world’s very best.”
