Two businesses on the north Northumberland coast have made it to the final of a top national tourism awards scheme.
Seafield Caravan Park, in Seahouses, has been named as a finalist in the Holiday Park/Village of the Year category of the prestigious Visit England Awards for Excellence 2014, while St Cuthbert’s House is in the running in the Guest Accommodation category.
As finalists, they now go forward to the glittering ceremony, which is being held on Monday, May 12, at Cheltenham Racecourse in Gloucestershire, where they will find out which award they will receive. All finalists are guaranteed to receive either a gold, silver, bronze or highly commended award.
Carolyn Britton, of Seafield Caravan Park, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be announced as a finalist and it is a credit to all the hard work and dedication shown by all our staff and team involved at both Seafield Caravan Park and The Ocean Club. Fingers crossed for the final!”
St Cuthbert’s owner Jill Sutheran said: “There are some fantastic tourism businesses from around the whole country in the mix and to be named among the top five is just wonderful. It’s good for our business of course, but we’re also pleased to be talking about the Northumberland coast as a wonderful place to visit.”
