• Awards and recognition

    We are extremely proud of our four cottages, swimming pool and spa. Here are the awards we are delighted to have been recognised in so far.


Should we enter? Do we have a year off? Two Silvers last year was fabulous! Eek, what do I do?? “Enter! You’ve got nothing to lose” was the reply from Gerry. So here we are. We entered and have been selected as finalists in both categories again. I’m so excited!  Once again, we have the judging process and then a lovely glitzy award ceremony to look forward to. A night out for all the team! I have to say I do like the West Midlands Tourism Awards. It’s professionally ran, follows great judging criteria and is very fair.  I won’t jump onto Awards that require upfront payment before being given the award – believe me there’s a lot of them out there. They are just not for me!

West Midlands Tourism Awards 2023 - Silver winner

There had been a break for a few years so we decided to give the West Midlands Tourism Awards another go in 2023.  This time we entered the Self Catering Accommodation of the Year and also the Accessible and Inclusive Tourism categories.  Both are tough classes and we were up against some stiff competition that are significantly bigger businesses than ours.  However, for us it’s an opportunity to review our own business by completing a pretty lengthy application form, then fingers crossed!  Thankfully the judges give written feedback which is always constructive and it’s great to have somebody independently review your business activities.

In 2023 the lovely Nicky Carriss and her team from Eaton Manor were the winners for the Self Catering Accommodation and we were runners up.  I have been a friend of Nicky’s for a long time, she gave me great advice when I was starting out and helped me join Premier Cottages when I opened in 2014.  We had a great night celebrating together, a great excuse to catch up too!

We also achieved runner-up for the Accessible and Inclusive Tourism Award.  Congratulations to St Mary’s Guildhall for winning this category. Barn Owl View our 5 Star Gold, M3A Accessibility Awarded property had only been open six months when we were judged; so we were really pleased to have come runners up.

Accessibility Awards

In 2022 we were awarded the Visit England National Accessible Scheme Award for Barn Owl View.  

It has achieved the highest level M3A, demonstrating it is typically suitable for a person who depends on the use if a wheelchair and requires assistance from a carer.  

In 2023 we were awarded Silver for West Midlands Accessible & Inclusive Tourism Award.

We are so proud to have achieved this accreditation and award.
