“It is an absolute thrill to announce that having entered the Rural Business Awards (RBA – in partnership with CLA & Amazon) Tourism category, we (Ceridwen Centre Ltd) have made it through to the category final alongside four other UK based businesses, with the overall winners set to be announced on the 5th of October ’17 at the Denbies Wine Estate, Surrey.
The award celebrates businesses that attract visitors to our rural lands. Promoting everything that is wonderful about country life. As an eco-minded holiday, course, retreat, event and wedding venue on a 40-acre organic farm in West Wales, attracting more than 2000 people a year to Wales, we entered the awards because we’re wholly committed to being and working where we are and we want to grow a sustainable business for future generations of our family and for the local community. We’re trying to do this with the lightest possible footprint we can. Being recognised for an award like this which is rooted in rural values would mean a great deal to us, and would both boost our profile and would be a reward and a stimulus to our fabulous, enthusiastic team.
We are also particularly elated to learn that the judges thought that Ceridwen was an interesting, unique idea with “brilliant green credentials”. A sure sign that our business is moving in the right direction.”
