Heligan Named Winner of Winners in Cornwall Tourism Awards
- 7th Nov 2014
Winning in both shortlisted categories, we have been awarded Gold in the ‘Garden & Country House of the Year’ and Silver in the ‘Wildlife Friendly Business’ category. The county’s prestigious Cornwall Tourism Awards, held on the evening of Thursday 6th November, saw the cream of Cornwall’s tourism industry attend the ceremony at The Headland Hotel in Newquay.
These awards follow an amazing year of awards including a European Garden Network award, a Countryfile Magazine award and a Cornwall Today Award. We’ve also been nominated for the Garden of the Year award in the Landlove Magazine awards and Most Inspiring Vegetable Garden in the Grow Your Own Magazine Awards. We'd love to win these awards too so would really appreciate your votes in both.
Head of Visit Cornwall, Malcolm Bell, says of The Lost Garden of Heligan’s win: "A magical place that thoroughly deserves its many awards. A fabulous garden whose many and varied attractions appeal to every generation. (The) WW1 commemorations struck the right balance between explaining the past and engaging the local community and visitors alike in a very thought-provoking and respectful manner."
