Archant Tourism Awards 2018

Each year we are proud to sponsor the area's Tourism Awards, and celebrate the fabulous tourism offering of our county.  For the first time, this year saw Norfolk and Suffolk combine to celebrate a joint tourism awards, and we were delighted to sponsor the Best Self-Catering Award.

Shortlisting the many excellent entries was a difficult task... and judging the three finalists was an even tougher remit!  The Limes in Norfolk, and The Windmill and The Suffolk Escape in Suffolk, are all amazing in their own way - offering visitors extremely high standards of holiday accommodation in beautiful locations.

What wasn't so difficult was enjoying ourselves at the fabulous awards evening, held in St Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St Edmunds.  Under ornate vaulted ceilings, more than 200 leading tourism people gathered to celebrate the outstanding efforts of all the finalists, as well as present the worthy winners with their trophies.  Our winners were Sarah and Daniel from The Suffolk Escape for their eco-friendly, modern and super-stylish barn conversion.  What a property!

Cheers to all the finalists and winners - what a worthy bunch they are!

I enjoy walking along Norfolk's beaches with my family and dog, theatre trips, dancing, laughing and knocking up a scrumptious feast for friends using local produce finished with a tipple of Norfolk Saffron's King Harry orange and saffron liqueur!
