ONLY one Isle of Wight business has made it on to the shortlist for this year’s Beautiful South Awards.
Nettlecombe Farm, Whitwell, which provides self catering cottages, has been nominated in the self-catering and serviced apartments section of the tourism awards, set to be presented at a ceremony in West Sussex in November.
Last year, the Isle of Wight Steam Railway scooped silver in its category, while Goodleaf tree climbing company and Brookside Cottage, Shorwell, were highly commended.
This year, more than 130 entries have been submitted to the awards scheme from organisations across the south. The awards range from large attraction of the year to outstanding customer service.
A presentation ceremony and awards dinner is due to be held in East Grinstead on November 27.
