This week saw the culmination of the second annual Cotswold Tourism Awards, launched to highlight the successes and achievements of Cotswold tourism businesses in an array of categories, with just under 30 awards being dished out.
Judging for the awards was said to be carried out by a confidential, impartial panel selected for their expertise in relevant areas.

These awards reward our achievers and help us to highlight the best of what’s on offer here.’
