Following our success at the prestigious Dorset Tourism Awards in February 2022, we were thrilled to be invited to attend the South West Tourism Awards which was held in Exeter this week.


Leading tourism businesses from all across the region, to include Cornwall in the west, Gloucestershire in the north, reaching out as far as the Scilly Islands as well as our little of corner of Dorset faced competition from all of the winners from the individual county awards.

Within a very strong category that included GOLD winners from each region all offering a diverse range of learning experiences, we are delighted to share the news that our independent, AGA approved cookery school achieved a SILVER award and ‘runners up’ across the whole of the South West of England region.

Lisa says, ‘Without the continued support of our amazing team, loyal suppliers and of course YOU are incredible guests and clients, none of this would have been possible.  Thank you, as always for your encouragement and support, especially during these last two challenging years’.

Jo Ecroyd, Customer Service Director of South West Water headline sponsors, congratulated all of the finalists at the beginning of the evening, her genuine warmth was evident when she spoke so warmly of our region, Jo says, ‘The South West is home to 860 miles of beautiful coastline and wonderful beaches which are major draws for the millions of visitors to our region each year.   In 2021, for the first time ever, 100% of our classified coastal bathing waters passed stringent standards, meaning our regions beaches can proudly take their place as amongst the best in Europe.  We are delighted to support the South West Tourism Awards which shine a spotlight on the best tourism businesses right across the region. The resilience and adaptability of the tourism industry over the last couple of years is inspirational.’
