Everyone here at Mill House Cottages is beyond thrilled at having been shortlisted for the British Small Business Awards, in the Micro Business of the Year category! According to Small Business, the companies chosen for this shortlist have “demonstrated impressive revenues and an approach to their sector that sets them apart from their peers” – with so many great businesses considered for this prestigious award, we’re proud to be one of the chosen ones.
Of course, we’d love to win, but even qualifying for this award is a fantastic achievement. For the Micro Business of the Year award, which is sponsored by Vistaprint, we met its requirements of being a small company with a strong revenue growth and a service that stands out from the crowd.
After all, our focus on delivering high-quality self-catering cottages in the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Scotland and South of France, as well as our commitment to offer only the best customer service, has allowed us to be recognised as a leader in our sector.
The saying ‘variety is the spice of life’ might be a cliché, but it’s something we take seriously. We believe that by offering a diversity of services we can improve our customers’ experience and help them find the perfect accommodation for their needs. This means we also provide pet-friendly cottages that make it easy to bring your dog on holiday with you, as well as the opportunity to choose accommodation at a broad range of beautiful locations.
Another qualifying factor for the Micro Business of the Year category was being able to identify and take advantage of opportunities in our sector, which we absolutely thrive on. A great example of this is our latest project -luxury properties for sale at the Gateway To the Lake District. Set in a stunning lakeside location, this prestigious development is a great opportunity to buy your own holiday home or investment property.
In addition, in 2016 we also started working with other property owners to increase our portfolio, meaning we can now offer our guests an even wider range of beautiful cottages.
We’re eagerly awaiting the British Small Business Awards, which are taking place on October 20th at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London. Even if we don’t win, the most important thing is continuing to offer superior services to our customers and ensuring the best holiday experience.
We firmly believe that our commitment to our customers was the main factor in our nomination, so we’re dedicated to continuing offering high-quality luxury accommodations that help our guests have the perfect holiday. Of course, none of this would be possible without our amazing and dedicated Team.
