We are very proud and delighted to announce that after only our second year, Lancombe Country Cottages & Lodges is one of the finalists in the Self Catering category in the 2015 Dorset Tourism Awards.
We will find out whether we have been awarded either a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Special award at the Dorset Tourism Awards ceremony on Thursday 15th October at the Tank Museum in Bovington.
The awards celebrate excellence in tourism across the South West with linked schemes in Cornwall, Devon and Dorset, aiming to promote and reward businesses and individuals in the tourism industry, whatever their sector and size.
Awards spokesperson Robin Barker is delighted to see the success of the awards: “The Awards have hit new heights this year, breaking previous records again following the region’s success in May’s national awards, when we were England’s top region. It is especially good to see businesses showing year-on-year improvements and numerous first time entrants.”
We are especially proud as there was an increase of 10% in this year’s entries, so we are excited that we have been selected as finalists.
The judging took account of our entry form, along with a combination of web searches, review sites, emails, telephone calls and visits, plus all available additional evidence.
For the finalists, the panel was looking for all elements of the business to be excellent, with some of them outstanding. So to get to this stage, it is a very significant achievement.
We will of course keep you updated on how we did, so fingers crossed!
