Brook Meadow is up against Landal Sandybrook in Derbyshire and Secret Meadows in Suffolk, for the title of Camping, Glamping and Holiday Park of the Year. Situated in Sibbertoft, Brook Meadow is a working farm which gives guests the opportunity to enjoy a lakeside break.

There are three luxurious lodges, each with a veranda from where you can enjoy the view across the lake. All lodges sleep four people with an optional extra of a sofa bed in Woodpecker and Skylark for a further two people.

There’s a cabin, which sleeps up to four, plus two safari glamping lodge tents and a new Airstream. The site also has pitches for caravanning and camping.

Cropston’s Horseshoe Cottage Farm is in the final of the B&B and Guest House of the Year category of the awards, alongside two Devon-based businesses – Brightham House Boutique Bed and Breakfast, and The 25 Boutique B&B.

According to the Horseshoe Cottage Farm website, it aims to provide ‘environmentally friendly, luxury accommodation, along with a warm welcome that includes tea and homemade cake by the fire side or in the pretty cottage garden.’

The beautiful B&B has been sympathetically restored, but retains many traditional features of the 200 year-old stone farmhouse and barns.

There are 15 core categories of the awards, which also include ‘Accessible and Inclusive Tourism Award’, ‘Pub of the Year’ and ‘Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable Tourism Award’. In addition to the 15 core categories, special awards are also being presented, including an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Tourism Award,’ a ‘Travel Content Award’ and a ‘Tourism Superstar Award’.

Talking about the two Leicestershire businesses which have reached the final, Martin Peters, CEO of Leicestershire Promotions, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to see two of our regional winners on the national short-list. Regardless of the outcome, this already recognises them as being in the top tier of England’s tourism businesses.”

The winners of the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence will be announced on June 8. The finals are being held at The Library of Birmingham
