Following the announcement that Coronation Street’s Rovers Return has made ‘The Rovers’ Annexe’ available for a once-in-a-lifetime stay only on Airbnb – here are some of the other pubs that are listed on Airbnb.
From Old Cross Saws inn and The Whistling Badger to the Bay Horse Inn, there are pubs scattered all over the UK that are taking advantage of listing their spare room. And as restrictions continue to lift, it seems now is certainly the time; in the UK, nearby travel has made up 82% of nights booked in the UK in 2021 as Brits embrace domestic staycations.*

The pub industry has been one of those hit the hardest during the pandemic. In response, resourceful publicans quickly adapted with many offering takeaway food and drinks. Some pub owners, including Hosts, Hilda Wright and Francesca Board, discovered the benefits of renting out their rooms on Airbnb after such a difficult year for the hospitality industry.
We are so happy to be welcoming guests back to the beautiful Northumberland National Park. It’s been a tough year but we are grateful for the additional income that we are starting to generate through the Airbnb platform and would encourage other pub owners across the UK to open up their doors to the many Brits searching for staycations on Airbnb this summer.

Airbnb is so easy to manage, I am able to do it all from my phone which is great because of how busy we’ve been. With the uncertainty caused by the pandemic potential guests have had a lot of questions, but we were able to communicate with guests, organise and reorganise bookings without any stress, it really has saved us!
