We’re thrilled to announce some fantastic news here at Laik: we’ve made it to the final of the Cumbria Tourism Awards 2023, in not one, but two separate categories!
The Cumbria Tourism Awards is a prestigious event that celebrates the best in tourism businesses across the region. It’s an honour to be considered among such esteemed company, and we’re overjoyed to share this exciting news with our customers and supporters.
New Tourism Business Award
Firstly, we’re in the running for the New Tourism Business Award. This award, sponsored by Thomson Hayton Winkley, recognises high-performing new tourism businesses. It’s for those who demonstrate an excellent understanding of their market and consistently exceed customer expectations, while also having clear plans for future development.
We’re humbled to be recognised alongside other great local businesses, such as Lanty Slee’s Saloon Bar in Elterwater and Golf Lake District.
Self-Catering Accommodation of the Year
Our second nomination is for our beautiful Loughrigg Cottage in the category of Self-Catering Accommodation of the Year, sponsored by The Cumberland. This accolade recognises self-catering accommodation businesses that offer exceptional quality holidays, helping to create memorable experiences for all their guests.
Loughrigg Cottage in Ambleside is in good company with other notable finalists like Cragg Cottage, Torver; Waterbird Boathouse at Hill of Oaks, Windermere; and Mill Pool Barn, Torver.
