Cornwall Tourism Awards shortlist


The shortlist has been revealed for next month’s Cornwall Tourism Awards.

The list of finalists sees a number of past winners who have continued to show consistency in the quality of their offer, as well as many first-timers.

They will discover whether they have been successful or not at an awards dinner to take place at The Headland Hotel in Newquay on November 8.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Cornwall Wildlife Trust, the awards will be presented this year by Wildlife TV presenter Nick Baker, who will present the Gold, Silver and Bronze trophies to winners across the 16 categories, along with several ‘special’ awards.

James Staughton, MD of title sponsors St Austell Brewery, commented: “Cornwall’s hospitality and tourism businesses are among the best in the industry and deserve to be celebrated this year more than ever.

“We are delighted to be part of the 2012 Cornwall Tourism Awards and to help shine a light on those individuals and their teams who continue to make Cornwall the UK’s favourite holiday destination.”
