exclusive business benefits

The Weekend Wishlist is the UK’s first dedicated weekend getaways collection championing brilliant weekend stays and experiences; helping small businesses connect with people looking for things to do on a weekend or a short break.

Our collection is fully searchable by region and/or category and makes it simple for our female audience to find the very best, trusted business to visit on a weekend away in the UK. It also provides the ultimate platform for us to shout about amazing escapes all over the British Isles and enable you to reach a huge audience of highly-motivated weekend warriors and staycationers. Building your brand faster than you may be able to do single-handedly.

However, not every business makes it into the Weekend Wishlist Collection. People trust this site and our judgement; they rely on us to give quality recommendations. As such, we only let specially-selected businesses that we truly rate join the Collection. So if you’re genuinely a business you think we’d love, apply now – and tell us why you deserve a slot.

“I am one VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER. I cannot stop smiling. Friends and customers are messaging me to tell how incredible my business is looking now. I originally contacted Claire to find out if I could join Weekend Candy and then discovered the branding services she offers. I also commissioned a Weekend Candy stay and competition. The results and payback have been immediate. Within 48 hours of Claire posting her stay on Instagram, I had three bookings. Working with Claire has been the best business decision I have made.”

Claire Robinson Founder of Weekend Candy

I can’t wait to add you to the team! 

What do you look for in a small hospitality business?

We love small, independent businesses who are passionate about the value they add to people’s lives. So we look for start-ups (who’ve been trading for more than 6 months), growing small businesses and more established brands that will inspire our readers. We want people to be excited to try your business on a weekend because it has character and quirk, it’s unique and different, it’s trendy and innovative. If we’re excited to try you, we’re pretty sure our readers will be too.

How do I get approved?

All applications are vetted by Weekend Candy’s Founder and Editor, Claire Robinson, and measured against our own criteria. All of our team pride themselves on only working with heart-centred, independent suppliers who provide high quality products and services that our audience can trust.

Is this the right investment for my business?

We understand how every penny counts when you run a small business. And whilst we can’t guarantee bookings – because we are not an OTA, we do promise that you will be seen by people who want new weekend inspiration. So if it’s website traffic growth you want, this is an affordable way of stimulating the process. Plus, we promote every listing to the best of our ability at all times – to make you really stand out.

Why do you charge a yearly fee?

Simply because we need to cover our professional time creating your bespoke content and then sharing it across our channels throughout the year. If we did it all for free, a huge chunk of our day would disappear and Weekend Candy would become unprofitable. A recurring fee is the best way to make sure you get the exposure you want.

What happens next?

If you’re approved, we’ll email you with the information we need to get your listing live. Once we have all the information, we’ll schedule in your portfolio page to be written. We’ll then create the assets to promote your brand and book in a date for an in-person visit, if you’ve decided to choose our content creation package.
