After this year’s annual inspection by Visit England, we were delighted to find that we had been awarded the prestigious self catering Gold Award in addition to our 5 star rating. Visit England’s unique Gold and Silver awards are given in recognition of exceptional quality within a property’s star rating. The inspector awards marks in key areas such as management efficiency, cleanliness, public areas, exterior, bathroom, kitchen and bedrooms.
For a 5 star property to achieve Gold Award status, it has to have an overall score of 91% or above, plus a minimum of 80% in each of the key areas.
We have achieved 100% for cleanliness in each of our five inspections and to quote the inspector: “An excellent standard of housekeeping is evident throughout the property with obvious attention having been paid to detail for which the proprietor is to be commended.”
We are always trying to find ways to enhance our guests’ stay at Candlelight Cottage and to get recognition in the form of a Gold Award is the best Christmas present we could have.
