What do you win?

Winning businesses, and the individual winner of the Sheila Hensman Unsung Hero award, will be presented with a handcrafted award and certificate at the awards finale.

Eligible winners of certain categories will automatically feed up to the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2021, for the chance to gain national recognition. (VisitEngland categories are confirmed on an annual basis and some categories, including Wedding Venue of the Year, Outstanding Contribution to Excellence, and our new category, the Makers and Producers Award are run at a Cumbria level only.)

We were thrilled to win a Cumbria Tourism award, which we believe is a fabulous showcase for the tourism sector in our amazing county.

Applying for the award gave us that additional motivation to keep us looking to improve on the service and product we offer, whilst recognising the hard work and dedication of our team here at Castlerigg Hall’.

Camping, Glamping & Holiday Park of the Year 2019

We’ve been here at Waterhead Bay for almost 40 years, and in that time we’ve witnessed so much growth and development in the tourism sector of the Cumbrian economy.

The Cumbria Tourism Awards celebrate the best that our county has to offer and give us all a platform to showcase what we do best, so to be involved in something so prestigious was very exciting!
