It’s been almost couple of weeks now since Dimpsey Glamping won Gold in the Glamping Business of the Year category of the Tourism Awards for Bath, Bristol and Somerset held in Bristol on the 19th October. But it’s been a whirlwind ever since and it’s taken a while to sink in!
Sponsored by Aztec Media, Dimpsey was one of three south west glamping businesses to have been shortlisted from 110 entries in the category.
We are over the moon to have won Gold for Dimpsey. We are one shepherd’s hut on a farm, but our glamping experience is all about reconnecting with each other in a luxurious hut that allows you to relax in nature and enjoy time away from it all. It’s a very boutique experience and we cater specifically for couples. We’ve added a hot tub and wood-fired oven this year, and we’ve seen occupancy hit almost 100%, which is wonderful. We’re so pleased that people love their stays with us! We’ll display our award proudly in the hut for new guests to see. It is a great achievement and we are so proud of our little hut!
Dimpsey will now be fast-tracked into the South West awards and possibly the VisitEngland awards later this year. The Tourism Awards were launched to help raise the profile of the area and recognise its top operators. The awards included 20 different categories, reflecting the diversity of the region’s tourism industry. Entrants went through a 3-stage judging process, taking into account websites, reviews, social media and a widespread programme of mystery visits by industry experts. All evidence was then presented to a judging panel.
We are truly blessed to be in this part of the world. Somerset is rich in tourism, and we are very proud that Dimspey is one of many representing the county in this area. There is so much to see and do here, and we always take great pride in showcasing our Somerset glamping business to the rest of the country.
Thank you to everyone who made this possible!
