We are absolutely delighted to announce that The Old Granary has been shortlisted in two categories for the Lincolnshire Tourism Awards 2020.
The awards are split into 12 accolades, and we are finalists in the following categories:
- Self-Catering Accommodation
- New Tourism Business
What are the Lincolnshire Tourism Awards?
The Lincolnshire Tourism Excellence Awards showcase the best of Lincolnshire’s £1.5 billion tourism industry. From beautiful hotels to popular attractions and places of interest, they are an impressive display of everything we love about the area.
Split into 12 categories, the ceremony celebrates those leading the way in sustainability, tourism and attracting visitors to Lincolnshire from outside the local area.
In the words of Lincolnshire Live (who run the awards in conjunction with Lincolnshire Echo and VisitLincoln), the ceremony highlights “the people who shine a spotlight on everything our great county has to offer.”
Each individual award recognises and rewards independent businesses that stand out from the crowd, which is why we are so proud to be considered.
New Tourism Business Award 2020
Sponsored by DoubleTree by Hilton, the ‘New Tourism Business’ award “recognises high performing new tourism businesses, demonstrating excellent understanding of their market, exceeding expectations of their customers with clear plans for future development.”
Our barn actually stems way back to the 1800s, but the renovation of turning it into self-catered accommodation was completed as recently as September 2018.
To be recognised as one of the county’s best New Tourism Businesses so soon after opening is something we are extremely thrilled about!
Self Catering Accommodation Award 2020
The ‘Self Catering Accommodation’ category acknowledges accommodations that “provide truly memorable guest experiences and demonstrate excellence across every aspect of the business”.
Everything about our self-catered accommodation has been delicately chosen and carefully crafted with our visitors in mind, so to be nominated for an award that celebrates self-catering excellence is great.
When is the Lincolnshire Tourism Awards 2020 Ceremony?
The ceremony takes place on the 3rd March 2020, where the winners of each award will be announced. From there, the winners of some categories will automatically be entered into the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2020.
We’re extremely proud to be considered amongst so many wonderful local businesses and to be part of an enterprise that promotes the magnificence of Lincolnshire. We would like to thank everyone who has made our first year of opening such an enjoyable experience for both me and Clare.
To our suppliers, our friends and family, and especially our guests, we are so grateful to you for helping us get The Old Granary to where it is today. We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you!
