    Online booking sites – like Booking.com, AirBnB, Trivago – all sound such a great idea in theory, don’t they? Cut out the middle man, bag yourself a bargain ­– but the trouble is, theory often doesn’t translate into practice and your dream deal ends up being a costly nightmare.

    Today is the hottest day of the year so far, a toasty 24 degrees which has got me thinking about summer holidays.  Have you got your summer holiday booked yet?

    Visit the moorland town of Moretonhampstead and the White Hart hotel is hard to miss, standing large and imposing at the town’s centre. It is an old posting inn dating back to 1639 and you get an instant feeling of history and permanence that is somehow very comforting. Add all the modern day luxuries it now offers and the place has a very welcoming feel indeed.
