Cornwall set to win big at the British Travel Awards
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
Cornwall looks set to clean up at this year's British Travel Awards, vying for awards in a number of different categories.
Devon and Cornwall face off against Northumberland and Pembrokeshire in the Best UK Holiday County category, which Cornwall will be quietly confident about winning.
Cornwall has won this award for six consecutive years, and are very much in the running to take it for a seventh year. This would continue an excellent record for Cornwall, as no other region has managed to win the award for more than two years in row.
With coastal views, moorland and a deep Celtic heritage, there really is no other place like Cornwall in the world, which is probably why it has been so successful over the years!
In other categories, the National Maritime Museum in Cornwall has been nominated for the Best UK Heritage Attraction, and both the Eden Project and the South West Coastal Path National Trail have been nominated for the Best UK Leisure Attractions category; both of which are only a short distance from our Fowey hotel.
The Eden Project is aiming to continue their winning streak, and clinch the award for record-breaking fifth consecutive year. Meanwhile, this is the first time the South West Coastal Path has been nominated for the award, which attracts eight million visitors to the South West every year, bringing with them £439 million for local economies
The winners will be chosen via a public vote, which can be cast until the 30th September, with the victors being announced at the award ceremony in London on the 25th November. Why not cast your vote for Cornwall at http://britishtravelawards.com/vote_form.php and keep the winning ways going?
