Dimpsey Glamping has struck gold again, winning the category of Glamping and Alternative Accommodation at the Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards held at Somerset County Cricket Club last night. Dimpsey also won the 2016 award.
After 6 months of assessing evidence and judging by a panel of experts, the winners were announced by Laura Rawlings from BBC Radio Bristol, who was joined on stage by Marcus Trescothick MBE.
The winners were all presented with individually crafted hand inscribed awards by Will Shakspeare, from Shakspeare Glass in Langport.
Somerset based organiser Nell Barrington said: “These awards showcase the best that Somerset, Bristol and Bath have to offer visitors; from food and drink to attractions, experiences, accommodation and new for this year, guided tours. I hope that as many as possible can go on to win in the South West and then VisitEngland Awards, to raise the profile of this magnificent area.”
Dimpsey Glamping is a high-end shepherd hut accommodation located on a farm at the foot of the Blackdown Hills in Chard. Dimpsey has been up and running since 2014 and boasts a hot tub, outdoor kitchen and luxury living space. Created by Blackdown Shepherd Huts, and nurtured by owners Emma and Andrew Warren, Dimpsey has gone from strength to strength as a luxury couple’s retreat, with year-round bookings.
Emma says: ‘To win gold is a real accolade and testament to the hard work we put in to make Dimpsey the very best glamping experience possible. We are small, but perfectly formed, and are always looking to improve what we do. I have a great team, and we love our guests – their experience and feedback is everything. Thank you to Booking.com who sponsored this award.’
