Congratulations to all our 2018 winners!

More than 400 guests representing the very best of our £2.9 billion tourism industry came together on the 20th June to honour everything special about Cumbrian Tourism. Winners in the main 18 categories were presented with their awards at Cartmel Racecourse, with event host Alan ‘Deadly’ Dedicoat – best-known as the National Lottery’s ‘Voice of the Balls’ – presiding over the annual ‘Oscars’ of the county’s tourism sector.

With 18 categories covering everything from accommodation to visitor attractions, tourism pubs to sustainability our awards really do showcase the very best of our £2.9 billion visitor economy – and what better way to celebrate the Lake District’s new UNESCO World Heritage Status than with the brand new Adventure and Culture & Heritage Experience of the Year awards!

It has been an incredible year for us, since we first opened our doors last August. It is also a very exciting time to be part of the Lake District and Ullswater. It is an exceptional part of the country highlighted even more with its UNESCO World Heritage status. We’re honoured to be recognised as the winner of the New Tourism Business award – a great accolade and a true testament to our hard-working team – thank you to everyone involved for their ongoing support. Here is to many more exciting years ahead. Will Ashworth, Managing Director, Another Place, The Lake

We are delighted that two of our self-catering properties were finalists for this award. We put Bristowe Hill in Keswick forward because it offers something truly special for guests. Meticulously refurbished by owner Keith Graham, this Lakeland mansion offers Edwardian elegance with a contemporary twist and a luxurious feel. Sue Jackson, Partner of Heart of the Lakes
