Cosy up at the ultimate in comfort accommodation; a Wool BnB

If the darker evenings and the chillier mornings are sparking a need for cosiness and comfort in you, this Wool BnB might be exactly what you’re looking for.

The Wool BnB is now available to stay in until 31 October and promises to bring relaxation to a whole new level. Guests can wrap themselves in a wool duvet and sleep on a wool mattress. In the morning, you can pad along to the kitchen on a luxurious wool carpet to find a fully cooked English breakfast, although since this breakfast is made from wool, you might also want to bring your own supplies.

The house rules are simple; no synthetic materials are allowed and guests must leave their shoes off to experience maximum levels of comfort. As well as rest, there’s plenty of emphasis on play too as the listing stresses that wool pillow fights are encouraged.

The Wool BnB is in De Beauvoir town, a part of North London close to Islington and Shoreditch, so if you do ever feel the need to leave the wooly enclave of the house, you’ll find plenty in the area to explore.

The woolly accommodation has been created in celebration of UK Wool Week 2016 by the Campaign for Wool. It costs £200 per night to stay and all the funds raised will go to the campaign in order to raise awareness of the benefits and versatility of wool.
