Best Rural Tourism Business Award Finalist

We are delighted to announce we’ve been named one of the best rural businesses in the UK after being shortlisted for a regional Rural Business Award!

We’ve been shortlisted in the Best Rural Tourism Business at the 2019/20 Rural Business Awards, held in partnership with Amazon. We’ll be battling it out against fellow rural businesses, entrepreneurs and enterprises from across the region for a place at the national final. We feel hugely proud to be alongside some outstanding businesses.

The Rural Business Awards 2019/20, in partnership with Amazon, will mark the Awards’ fifth year of celebrating the success of businesses across the UK’s rural economy – a segment which employs in excess of 3.4 million people in over 750,000 businesses in England alone. The Awards are organised by rural business for rural business with the aim of celebrating the achievements of rural businesses and developing a strong network for rural business owners.

Director and Co-Founder of The Rural Business Awards, Anna Price, said: “The 2019/20 Awards have seen record numbers of entries and it’s encouraging to see so many rural businesses express a desire to celebrate their successes on a regional and national scale. We are passionate about creating a nurturing environment where rural businesses can develop, and this starts by showcasing the great work they do. On behalf of everyone at the Rural Business Awards, we want to say well done to The Suffolk Escape, and all the shortlisted businesses, and wish them luck ahead of the regional finals.”

The Rural Business Awards is hosting a series of regional finals in the North, East, Midlands, South East, South West, Wales and Northern Ireland, throughout October and November 2019, ahead of the National Final next February, where the businesses are being reviewed by an independent panel of judges drawn from the rural business sector, rural public sector agencies, and rural charitable organisations.

Keep your fingers crossed!
