Marlborough House Named Best Vegetarian Bed and Breakfast for Catering to Health-Conscious, Animal-Friendly Guests

Bath – In recognition of the B&B’s outstanding commitment to providing guests with comfortable, cosy accommodations and healthy, humane meals, Bath-based Marlborough House Bed and Breakfast has been named the Best Vegetarian Bed and Breakfast in PETA Europe’s second annual Proggy Awards. Marlborough House will receive a framed award and will be featured on “Proggy” stands for “progress”, and the Proggy Awards recognise animal-friendly achievements in commerce and culture.

At Marlborough House, an all-vegetarian B&B, visitors can relax in one of six sumptuously decorated rooms, stroll through Royal Victoria Park, walk to the centre of historic Bath and explore other nearby historical sites like Stonehenge, Wells, Glastonbury, Lacock, Castle Combe, Cheddar Gorge and Longleat, the spectacular home of the Marquis of Bath. Guests should come with their appetites; all meals are guaranteed to be hearty, humane and absolutely delicious. Featuring vegan and vegetarian food made with a variety of organic produce, the menu includes grilled tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, vegan sausages and fresh fruit salad.

“Today’s travellers are attracted to healthy, humane and ethical food, and Marlborough House is meeting that demand enthusiastically”, says PETA Europe’s Sarah Dickinson. “Bath is a favourite tourist destination, and Marlborough House is just one more reason to visit this beautiful and historic region.”

More than 25 Proggy Awards have been given out this year, and the winners include a tour operator, a city council, and independent producers and marketers of vegan foods and cruelty-free personal care products.
