Cotswolds Tourism 2014 Award Winners




In conjunction with Cotswold Life, Cotswolds Tourism have been busy with the tourism awards putting local hotels, B&Bs, visitor attractions and other tourism businesses in the spotlight as the fourth annual Cotswold Tourism Awards are announced.

 

The 2014 Awards highlight the successes and achievements of Cotswold tourism businesses throughout the last year in 15 categories: Bed and Breakfast/Guest Accommodation of the Year, Self-Catering Holiday Provider of the Year, Small Hotel of the Year, Large Hotel of the Year, Holiday Park/Holiday Village of the Year, Small Visitor Attraction of the Year, Large Visitor Attraction of the Year, Taste of England Award, Tourism Pub of the Year, Tourism Experience of the Year, Tourism Event of the Year, VIC Provider of the Year, Access for All Tourism Award, Sustainable Tourism Award and the final award sponsored by Cotswold Life is the Business Tourism Award.

For the second year running the awards are in alignment with the VisitEngland National Awards, using the same categories and application forms.  The gold and silver winners for each category will automatically go through to the VisitEngland National awards and will be in for a chance of picking up an award nationally.

Sarah Tyler of Cotswolds Tourism and GFirst LEP said: “This year we have seen a record number of applicants across all categories and the competition has been steep – it was a shame we couldn’t recognise everyone.  The judges had a difficult job but feel they have rewarded our biggest achievers and highlight what is great about our area”
