From charming guesthouses to sprawling mansions and budget hotels, there is no shortage of holiday accommodation in Hampshire.
For those with an entrepreneurial spirit, this may seem like the perfect time to delve into the hotel market after the last year saw an increase in the number of people vacationing at home.
Host Unusual, a website that offers quirky vacation rentals, revealed in August that UK vacation searches for 2022 were up 74% from the previous year.
