All Round Success for Cornwall’s Top Tourism Businesses
In front of an audience of over 300 people, ranging from restaurateurs and hoteliers to industry leaders and tourism associations, the luxury five star, self-catering and B&B holiday provider, overcame competition from fourteen other category winners to claim the evening’s top prize.
The overall title made it a hat-trick of awards for Roundhouse Barn Holidays, adding to the gold award for Small Self-Catering Establishment of the Year and silver award for B&B/Guest Accommodation that it picked up earlier in the evening.
Guest speaker, Ben Fogle, who is well-known for having previously presented BBC’s Animal Park, Countryfile and Crufts and for staring in BBC2’s On Thin Ice, added to the evening’s celebrations with an entertaining pre-dinner talk in which he shared tales of his visits to Cornwall and described his love for the county.
The Cornwall Tourism Awards gold, silver and bronze winners will now go on to represent the county in the South West Regional Awards and ultimately the National Excellence Awards.
