Carol Hyland with Strictly Dancing star Natalie Knibbs outside Beechwood Bed and Breakfast in Halland.

B&B owner charms celebrity guests

Bed and breakfast owner Carol Hyland was delighted to welcome celebrity guests to stay with her at the weekend and even more pleased when they gave her accommodation a five-star rating.

Carol runs Beechwood Bed and Breakfast at Halland, with her partner Ceri Stenner, and was surprised when Strictly Come Dancing Star Natalie, maiden name Lowe, arrived with her new husband James Knibbs on Friday night.


Yesterday the couple reviewed their stay giving five out of five, excellent, for location, cleanliness, facilities, services/staff.

They agreed they would recommend the property to other travellers saying: “Unbelievable stay, amazing service, impeccably clean bathroom and bedroom in cosy homey environment with an extremely comfortable bed.

Amazing food

“Amazing selection of food for breakfast, spoilt for choice. Hosts did not leave a stone unturned, lovely, warm, and very accommodating. Perfect night’s sleep. I would 1 million % stay again.”

Carol said the couple were lovely and their comments were the icing on the cake because she has recently been awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for the fifth year running.
