Combermere Abbey cottages are among the winners of Marketing Cheshire's Annual Awards 2012, having won the category, 'Self Catering Holiday Provider of the Year'.
Sarah Callander Beckett, Combermere Abbey's owner, was thrilled to receive this accolade at a glittering black tie event held on Friday 23rd November at the European HQ of M&S Bank in Chester.
She exclaimed: "We are absolutely thrilled to win this prestigious regional award and go on to represent Cheshire at the national Awards next year.
"This is testimony to two decades of my work on the estate and the loyalty, support and hard work of a fabulous team around me!"
Combermere Abbey cottages were judged alongside other excellent self catering providers in Cheshire, and were particularly noted for their great attention to detail, awareness of their target market, good use of branding and strong green ethics.
The cottages will now go straight through to represent Cheshire in the national Visit England Awards for Excellence 2013.
The cottages benefited from extensive work last year and the development of three further cottages, making a total of ten. The cottages are popular with wedding guests at the Abbey estate, as well as leisure guests visiting the Cheshire and Shropshire region.
