Following our success at Cornwall Tourism Awards last month (we were awarded Gold in the ‘Large Self Catering Establishment of the Year’ category), we’re delighted to reveal we’ve been selected as one of the finalists for the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2012.

Bosinver’s in the running for “Self Catering Holiday of the Year”, having beaten off intense competition from Somerset, Dorset, Bath, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bristol, the Isles of Scilly, Devon and Cornwall.

With 300 entries to choose from, no stone was left unturned in the short-listing process, which also involved visits by the judges and mystery shoppers to put the contenders through their paces.

Getting through to the final of the South West Tourism Awards means there’s a Gold, Silver or Bronze award with our name on it. We’ll have to wait till the Awards ceremony on Friday 8th February to find out which, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed!

What makes being chosen as one of the winners extra special is the fact that the Awards ceremony will be held in Cornwall for the first time – and right on our doorstep at the Eden Project.

A big thank you

Our success has been a team effort, and we couldn’t have done it without all of you! We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who’s helped us on our journey over the past 12 months, including taking part in our photoshoots and filming, giving us feedback during the development of our new website, writing reviews about holidays at Bosinver and recommending us to friends and family.

Onwards and upwards…

As a winner in the South West Tourism Awards, we’re also now eligible to represent the region in the “Self Catering Holiday Provider of the Year” category of the national VisitEngland awards, which will be announced at a ceremony in late May. The thought of representing Cornwall at this level makes us all feel extremely proud.

Wish us luck – and watch this space for more details!
