Holiday lettings company Cornish Gems has been nominated for a British Travel Award, for the second year in a row.

Cornish Gems, which has a collection of 180 of luxury holiday homes on its books, is shortlisted in the Best UK Holiday Cottage Company category.

Last year Cornish Gems won gold, bringing home the trophy having been crowned the Best (Southern) UK Holiday Cottage Company.

Commenting on the nomination, Julianne Shelton, co-managing director at Cornish Gems, said: “We are immensely proud to have been nominated for the British Travel Awards again this year.

“A welcome piece of exciting, good news in what has been a very challenging year for the travel industry and certainly our most difficult to date, since we started trading over 13 years ago.

“Our team work incredibly hard to deliver the highest standards – never more so than this year – and we’re so thankful to our loyal customers, who’ve stuck with us as we’ve navigated the unchartered waters of the last few months together.”

Winners will be announced on December 14.
