We have won a Silver Award in the Tourism Experience of the Year category at the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2016 Ceremony.
Celebrating excellence across the industry, the ceremony - held for the first time this year during English Tourism Week - announced 16 winners including Best Tourism Experience, Best Visitor Attraction and Best Large Hotel and this year’s new edition, the Best Dog Friendly Business.
The Silver Award is one of the highest accolades for Excellence in Tourism in England which VisitEngland can bestow. River Cottage HQ was presented with a Silver Award at a glittering Awards Ceremony which was held on 8 March 2016 at The Winter Gardens, Blackpool.
Commenting on the Award, Sally Balcombe, CEO of VisitBritain and VisitEngland said "We received hundreds of applications of an extremely high quality this year. Winning a Silver is therefore a considerable achievement and one of the highest accolades for excellence in tourism which VisitEngland can bestow. I warmly congratulate River Cottage HQ."
Lucy Lomas, River Cottage Business Director, said: "This is fantastic news and a great tribute to the hard work of our talented and committed team. We are delighted to have received this accolade."
