EXMOOR Character Cottages won Silver in the Resilience and Innovation category at the South West Excellence Awards Ceremony.

The glittering black-tie ceremony, that took place at Sandy Park, Exeter, on Thursday, April 7 brought together the finalists, their guests, and sponsors around the south-west to celebrate their success, and for the first time in two years, in person.

Lucy Green, owner of Exmoor Character Cottages was proud to be amongst more than 90 stand out businesses, and world-class attractions including The Minack Theatre in Penzance and Stonehenge in Wiltshire, who have all worked hard to attract visitors to the UK’s top tourist destination.

Lucy said: “We are all delighted to be part of the south-west excellence awards, it is such an honour for us as a small holiday accommodation business and to also be flying the flag for the fantastic region of Exmoor and the businesses that depend on tourism.

“We all know how important it is to attain and service a level of excellence that guests are looking for especially after the two years we have all experienced.

“We actively encourage reviews and feedback about our four cottages, as ultimately happy guests are testament to the continuing success of our business, so we want to encourage them to return.”

All the finalists at the south-west excellence awards have succeeded in their respective categories, with Exmoor Character Cottages receiving a Gold at the Bristol, Bath, and Somerset Tourism Awards in February.

It was a win that was especially welcome after one of the most challenging times in the hospitality and tourism industry that cheered the hearts of Lucy’s hard-working team, as well as her loyal guests who gave them a reason to keep going.
