We are delighted to announce that Treseren has made the final for the Best New Business in the 2019/2020 Cornwall Tourism Awards.
The Cornwall Tourism Awards celebrate the wealth of amazing businesses across our county, and this year Cornwall Tourism reported a record number of entries that broke previous records with nearly 740 entries across the whole region in all the categories.
The application process was incredibly rigorous, with two judges visiting Treseren in September and looking in person at our offer for small, intimate weddings and boutique holidays.
We were judged on the quality of our venue and the service we provide for our guests, as well as our new developments this year with the additions such as the fire pit area and beautiful sail cloth over the terrace which has been the perfect spot for our weddings, with a number of couples opting to hold their summer ceremonies underneath it.
Cornwall Tourism also looked at how sustainable we are as a business. We are really proud of our links with local suppliers for both the food we provide for our breakfasts and welcome feasts and aim to reduce food miles. For example, the beautiful Cornish Plaice that was the centerpiece of Sam and Natalie’s welcome feast was delivered by Fish For Thought after landing in Newlyn the previous morning – it doesn’t get much fresher than that!
We also love that the toiletries we offer our guests are from local aromatherapist Mary’s Shed and beautiful stationary for our weddings from local company Scalet Paperie
We don’t know if we have won, but we have our fingers crossed for awards night. The Awards Ceremony is on 7th November at Truro Cathedral and as we were allocated 4 finalist tickets, Paul and I have invited two key members of our team who have been with us since the launch of Treseren. Joining us for the meal and ceremony at the Cathedral is Izzy, our Digital Marketing Manager and Marie, our Head Housekeeper. We can’t wait for our big night out together and will let everybody know how it goes. Watch this space!!
