Trenython Manor reaches finals in 2013/14 Cornwall Tourism Awards
For the 2nd year running, Trenython Manor, a CLC World resort in the UK, is one of the finalists in the annual Cornwall Tourism Awards ‘Wildlife Friendly Business’ category; in 2012 it was awarded a silver gong.
In a letter of notification, it was explained that along with the usual collecting of ‘evidence’: “More than ever before, judges were looking for a digital presence that inspired and informed visitors, with good management of online reputations and active use of social media.”
On behalf of Cornwall Tourism Awards, Robin Barker wrote: “To be amongst the winners, given the level of competition, is a very significant achievement indeed.” Trenython will learn if it is to be bronze, silver or the coveted gold at the awards ceremony scheduled for November 7th.
Trenython holds a number of awards for its environmental initiatives, led by resort manager Nick Waddington. The 26 acre site includes six acres of ancient woodland and wildlife is actively encouraged with specially constructed habitats. The resort is a Gold winner under the Green Tourism Business Scheme, and is recognised as a ‘Considerate Hotelier’.
Special promotions at the beautiful historic hotel and luxury lodge resort, which overlooks St Austell Bay, include Nature Break packages – and with each booking a seal is adopted with the Cornwall Seal Group and a donation made to Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s Tywardreath Marsh Nature Reserve.
“We are always looking for new ways to support the environment and the variety of wildlife we have in Britain, we find guests are very responsive to it and children in particular take a great interest,” said Mr Waddington.
