Lakeland Photographic Holidays were crowned the winners of the Tourism Experience category in the Cumbria Tourism Awards 2012 at a ceremony last night.
Lakeland Photographic Holidays business owners John and Gail Gravett, are the only photographic based business to ever be entered into the Cumbria Tourism Awards.
When the judges visited their Photographic Holiday business, they were impressed with their weekly survey which showed that 100% of guests who stayed would recommend them to a friend.
The judges said: "Lakeland Photographic Holidays have maximised the potential of all inclusive special interest holidays in the Lake District and the numbers of repeat visitors are testament to this. They provide accompanied visits and tailored workshops to develop the skills of keen amateur photographers, helping them to capture the magic of Lakeland on camera and thereby continuing to promote Cumbria's wonderful landscape. Carefully selected menus and well prepared, locally sourced food also enhance the guest experience."
Lakeland Photographic Holidays offer a unique touch to their photographic business by offering full board accommodation and photographic tuition. John, recognised as a regular writer for ePHOTOzine and one of the top photographic tutors in the UK, brings a range of workshops and courses related to photography in an area that offers scenic, holiday brochure looking views.
There is still availability for some of the 2012 workshops and the 2013 calendar will be online in August 2012. For more information about Lakeland Photographic Holidays and the courses they run, visit their website: Lakeland Photographic Holidays
