Visit England Awards

Visit England Awards


Hi Everyone, our first blog on this website.  

Just over a week ago we were in Newcastle attending the Visit England Excellence Awards.  We were delighted to have been shortlisted as one of the top 6 small hotels in the UK for 2015.  
It was time to dust down the Black Tie or for the ladies, pop out and buy a new frock. The format for the evening was a drinks reception with a few canapes and some very delicious cheese tasting. Following on from this was a formal dinner and then the presentation and award ceremony.  We heard from James Beresford, the Chief Executive of Visit England, then from Lady Cobham and the highlight was performance from Laura Wright, the British soprano who is known best for her performances at Twickenham.

Then came the Awards....
Cumbria and the Lake District was well represented in 4 categories and the awards would either be Gold, Silver, Bronze or Highly Commended.

We were delighted to have been awarded a Hightly Commended at the end of a fantasic evening, and just attending was a privilege.

Thanks for reading and we will be adding blogs regularly with information about the Hotel, the Lake District and Cumbria.

Best wishes

Caroline and Jonathan
