VisitEngland awards honour South West with 18 nominations

Those soon to be enjoying a holiday in 5 star cottages in Cornwall will be glad to hear that they are visiting one of the top holiday destinations in the country according to VisitEngland, after it was announced that a record number of Westcountry businesses were named as finalists in the VisitEngland awards for 2013.

The tourism body announced that there were 67 finalists for the awards, with 18 of these coming from the Westcountry. The selection progress for the finalists was described as rigorous, and over 300 entries were considered for the awards. Six of the finalists are businesses in Cornwall, marking out the county as a leading holiday destination in the South West.

Cornwall has plenty to offer visitors from all walks of life, whether they are looking for beautiful scenery, a variety of coastal and inland walks, fine dining or lots of family-fun. All of this and more can be found in the Duchy, and many of its businesses are hoping for success at the VisitEngland awards in May.
