A FORMER farm which has been converted into the ultimate holiday site in Somerset has been nominated in three categories at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards.

The Middlewick, in Glastonbury, is a finalist in the following categories:

  • Cafe/Tearoom of the Year
  • Dog Friendly Business of the Year
  • Ethical, Responsible, and Sustainable Tourism Award

The farm site has been situated at the bottom of Glastonbury Tor since 1656, where it worked as a farm until the 1980s before being converted to holiday accomodation.

The site now boasts holiday cottages, wooden cabins, glamping pods, a farm shop, café, spa and swimming pool, yoga building, and an events space.

The lengthy judging process is comprised of an entry form and already present online reviews, followed by a surprise visit and inspection from a South West Tourism Excellence Awards panel member.

The Middlewick stood out to the judges so much so that it is the only Somerset business to be named a finalist in three categories.

The winners will be revealed in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards ceremony on Thursday, March 14.
