Woohoo! We just won GOLD at the NE Tourism Awards 2011, in the Sustainable Tourism category. Fantastic!
We were up against some very strong competetion in this category (I'm talking about the 'compost toilets' kind of strong) and so we were absolutely delighted to win the top prize. We are passionate about local food (and beers) and conducting our business in a way which doesn't cost the earth, so this is a prize we'll treasure. But you don't need to wear a 'hair shirt' in order to make your stay a responsible one.
