2015/2016 Bronze Award in Cornwall Tourism Awards for Self Catering. This year the small businesses such as ourselves were judged alongside the large self catering complexes with swimming pools, play areas etc. We were thus delighted to be awarded bronze against such high competition. http://www.cornwalltourismawards.org.uk/
2006-2016 Visit England 5 star Gold Award – highest level.
We are very proud to have been judged as 5 star Gold since we were first inspected for these awards. To maintain and hold this high level of award year after year is a tribute to our hard work and dedication to quality.
For this both cottages and the surrounding grounds are inspected annually by a quality assessor connected to Visit England. The gradings are 1 – 5 star with an additional Gold award for properties showing an exceptional level of quality, comfort and cleanliness and outstanding customer service.
2005-2016 Green tourism business scheme Gold award National tourism certification for all tourism businesses in the UK.
Since first applying for this award we have met the rigorous standards required in all aspects of sustainability and held the Gold award for the last 11 years. With only 1 in 20 self-catering businesses achieving Gold, this is an award we are exceptionally proud of.
Cornwall Today Awards 2014
Highly commended . Best small accommodation in Cornwall.
This was based on nominations by Cornwall Today readers and we progressed to the dizzy heights of the shortlist of the top four businesses in Cornwall and were awarded Highly Commended.
To have been awarded third in the whole of the South West (Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset) is a tremendous achievement. We also won the Gold award in this in 2009 and were a finalist in the National Awards that year.
For this award the 3 or 4 winners from the Cornwall awards in each of the small and large self catering category, together with entries from 6 other counties in the South West of England are then judged in a similar manner.
We are delighted to have been awarded the Gold again in this competition (we also won this in 2009). We couldn’t ask for a higher accolade!
This is a competition open to all self catering businesses who are quality assessed. There is an online entry form and when this stage is passed there is then a visit by a judge and the results of all this are then put before a board of judges.
