Join a VisitEngland Welcome Scheme

About the schemes

VisitEngland-rated accommodation can choose to highlight their specialities by joining a Welcome Scheme.

The welcome schemes allow you to show that your accommodation business is well suited to and equipped for guests with particular requirements by highlighting that you provide certain facilities and services.

The welcome schemes include:

  • Walkers Welcome
  • Cyclists Welcome
  • Families Welcome
  • Welcome Pets
  • One Step Ahead

Whether they require a litter tray for their cat, a drying room for muddy boots, lockable storage for bikes, or a cot and a highchair, guests will see the scheme logo and book in confidence that their particular needs will be met.

How to apply

When you apply for your quality star rating, you can select the welcome schemes as an additional assessment check on your application form.
