Speaking to Roseland Online, Andrea said “We are totally astounded to have won such amazing recognition in our first two and half years of Pebble House being open. The Cornwall Tourism Awards were the first awards that we have ever entered, so to win Gold in those and now go on to win Gold regionally and reach the national finals is a huge honour. We owe our thanks to our suppliers as the quality of their products adds to our high standards already offered and also our fabulous guests who keep returning, some as many as seven times in under three years”

Also celebrating a bronze award in both the Cornwall and South West Awards are Roundhouse Barn Holidays at St Just-in-Roseland.  Mark - Roundhouse Barns reduxMark Sadler (left) was quick to take to Twitter to share their win and to say how delighted they were too.
