  • Glamping Provider, Silver, South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2016/17 
  • Glamping Provider, Gold, Bristol, Bath & Somerset Tourism Awards 2016
  • WHY DID YOU ENTER THE AWARDS?

    I find the whole process really helpful.  The preparation and completion of the entry form makes me sit down and take stock and review what we’ve achieved and it’s really good to take the time out to do that or you miss how much progress you’ve made.  Then the actual award nights are a great opportunity to network with like-minded people and hear what they’re doing.  The feedback from the judges was really useful – and of course, being able to shout loudly and proudly that we were winners was fantastic – great feeling and great for our guests to know.

    HOW DID YOU FIND THE PROCESS?

    It was really well organised and easy to follow what we needed to do.  It’s hard writing about yourself but you do have to showcase and make sure that you recognise what your strong and weak points are.

    THE REWARDS

    It makes all the hard work worthwhile – hospitality isn’t an easy industry so to actually be recognised as doing it well was fantastic.  It has given us confidence to move forward and move our business on, as well as recognition and profile in our local area and nationally.

    TOP TIPS FOR OTHER BUSINESSES

    Be yourself, do what they ask you to do, be clear and concise and try to enjoy it rather than worry about it.
