Colton House has won a Bronze Award in the Sustainable Tourism category at the prestigious National VisitEngland Awards at Bath on 23rd April 2018. After winning three Highly Commended awards (2014, 2015, 2016) in this category we move up this year to a Bronze.
Commenting on the Award, Sally Balcombe, CEO of VisitBritain and VisitEngland said:
“The standard of the hundreds of applications we received this year was extremely high and that’s why Colton House’s accolade is a testament to their excellent work.
“These awards shine a spotlight on our fantastic tourism industry, with the winners showcasing the quality, innovation and excellence on offer throughout England and I warmly congratulate them on their impressive contribution to the tourism industry.”
The judges comments included ” Colton House makes good progress building on an excellent foundation, rather than seeing the historic property as an insurmountable challenge Ron and Gay have worked had to maximise resource efficiency and use it as a showcase for local history and culture and act as champions for sustainability”.
