Herefordshire business Rural Concierge has won the Best Rural Tourism Business at the 2018 Midlands Rural Business Awards sponsored by Amazon.
2016 saw Rural Concierge as the overall winner of the Best Rural Tourism Business Award, as presented by the Rural Business Awards in partnership with CLA.
Over the past couple of years the business has grown from strength to strength and with Hereford City Council granting a three year Service Level agreement to manage Hereford Tourist Information, visitors to Hereford city are now able to find out what there is to enjoy in the county within Hereford Butter Market.
Established in 2013, Rural Concierge organises tours, trips and holidays, they are also the booking agents for local coach companies such as Yeomans and Whittles Holidays.
Liz Hill founder and Director of Rural Concierge said “I am absolutely over the moon to win this category for the region. It is real honour to receive national recognition. I always want to make the holiday experience as easy as possible for visitors travelling to rural areas and at Rural Concierge we cater not only for the local and national visitor, but we have a growing range of international clients too. We are so proud to be recognised for doing what we love”.
Liz recognised the need for a tourism based offering that supported local business and encouraged more visitors into the county, whilst also catering for local people wanting to explore and enjoy different experiences through day trips and holidays.
The Midlands Rural Business Awards event was held on Thursday 11th October at Eastwood Hall in Nottingham and the national finals will be held at Chateau Impney in Droitwich on 28th February 2019.
