We’re delighted to tell you we came home with another two awards from the 2015 Cornwall Tourism Awards which are now taking pride of place at Roundhouse Barns.
Every year the awards get bigger and better while the competition for the top gongs continues to move from strength to strength. This year we were shortlisted for best self-catering and best bed and breakfast – something we were especially proud of as it’s the first year we’ve been running our new B&B Suite.
We’d already found out we’d received a Highly Commended in the ‘Sustainable Tourism’ category, so the wait was now on to see which prize we’d scoop in the other two categories. We were up against some fantastic businesses in two of the strongest categories and went home with the bronze awards for both of them.
Of course we would have loved to have won gold again but the bronze awards themselves are a real testament to the quality of the luxury accommodation we provide in both our self-catering and B&B offering.
There were 172 entries this year so we’re very pleased with a third place! We’re also incredibly proud of the part we play within Cornwall’s tourism industry, delivering a great experience to our guests so they keep coming back to visit the county year on year.
Tourism is the lifeblood of the Cornish economy and as an industry we must all continue to deliver the highest of standards, the best experiences and get people excited about visiting this magical part of the world.
Our challenge is to come back next year and go for Gold again! A huge well done to all the businesses who made the shortlist once again and a big thank you to all involved for putting on such a wonderful event.
