THREE Tynedale accommodation providers have received a prestigious Rose Award from Visit England.

Each year there are only 100 recipients of a Rose award, which recognises the providers across England who provide visitors with the warmest of welcomes. 

They celebrate the establishments where the owners, management and employees, irrespective of their star rating, style or type of accommodation, provide outstanding experiences for their customers.
