Hidelow House Cottages is Silver Winner in National Tourism "Access For All" Award 2010
In October 2009 we won 3 major regional tourism awards (referred to as the "Tourism Oscars")
at the Heart of England Excellence in Tourism Awards
Gold - 2009 "Access for All in Tourism" Award
Gold - 2009 "Sustainable Tourism" Award
Highly Commended - "Self-Catering" Award
We were subsequently put forward to the national Enjoy England Excellence in Tourism Awards, held at a glittering Gala night in Brighton on 23rd April 2010.
Where, against really stiff competition we won the
2010 Silver National "Access For All" in Tourism Award.
[Our competitors? - Imago at Burleigh Court won Gold; this is a conference hotel based at Loughborough University, which has 225 bedrooms, 24 meeting rooms and a leisure club. The Sage Newcastle Gateshead also won Silver; this is a performing arts, events and conference centre employing more than 425 full and part-time staff].
So ..... we may be small, but we think we did rather well, with the judges appreciating the unique service and facilities we offer our disabled guests at Hidelow.
