Various colleges: Lot's of B&B accommodation available -sometimes

As a way of raising extra revenue, most of the colleges offer a bed & breakfast service out of term time.

On occasions they fill the place out with conference, but this is unusual.

The service is especially useful for single travellers as it avoids any problems with single room supplements.

Collingwood college is probably the smartest to stay in (with unheard of delights like en-suites) whilst the best situated has to be St Chad's college (my old place) on the Bailey.

The most historic is clearly the Castle (see seperate tip)

The picture actually shows my old room at college - I'm sure some people would pay extra for the priviledge !

The Bracken

The Bracken in Shincliffe is a small hotel in an old creaky house. There is a bar, and a restaurant, but the best thing is that it is just opposite the Seven Stars Inn (see restaurants above). Oh, I forgot the old labrador who likes to sniff each guest!!!!
Around £50 bed and breakfast.

(My dad used to stay here when he came to help me move in and out of college, but he hasn't donw that for a while, so this place may not exist anymore. The owner was talking about selling, so check with the tourist office first...)

Rooms are quite small, but I think all have private bathrooms. Some rooms have traffic noise from the busy road outside.
