Chicken Hotel

It's a hotel - but with a major difference. Instead of booking in guests in human form, Cornwall's newest hotel only takes chickens. The aptly-named Chicken Hotel recently opened for business at Boskenwyn, Helston. The venture was set up to give chicken owners a place to check-in their birds while away from home.

David Roberts, a maths teacher who keeps his own chickens as a hobby, runs the hotel. He said: With more people looking to escape the rat race and move out in the country with a little bit of land, keeping chickens is becoming more and more popular.
