We are over the moon to have been announced as a winner in the 2013 VisitEngland Awards for Excellence (the national tourism awards).

VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2013

For the second year running, we have been shortlisted as a finalist in the Self Catering Holiday Provider of the Year category of the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2013, and are therefore guaranteed to win either a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Highly Commended Award.

The award follows the launch of our new branding and fantastic new website, all of which was professionally designed by local business, Carl Jones Design (, based in Church Stretton.

The new website has had an immediate effect, leading to increased bookings, and has therefore allowed us to expand and take on more local staff.

We have always been strong advocates of supporting business in the community and primarily use Shropshire based suppliers and employ staff from the local area. Nichola Cariss (one of the owners) says, “We are delighted to have been selected as finalists for these awards for the second year running and we are proud that our collaboration with local people and businesses is the driving force behind our success.”

As a finalist we now go forward to the glittering Awards Ceremony being held on 20 May 2013 at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Club, Old Trafford, Manchester, where we will find out which award we’ve won.
