our awards

The Dandelion Hideaway enjoys an intimate, exclusive atmosphere an idyllic place for an escape. We are the only glamping destination to have been shortlisted and won the prestigious, national VisitEngland Excellence Awards (Self Catering Accommodation) in 2014, 2015, 2016 and now 2017.

Regionally, we are consistent winners too at the Leicestershire Excellence in Tourism Awards (Self Catering) in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. A dazzling achievement.

In 2015, we were presented with the VisitEngland ROSE award in Recognition Of Service Excellence. This new award from VisitEngland is given only to a handful of properties nationally that are deemed to go the extra mile.

The Trip Advisor story is the icing on the cake, having achieved the Certificate of Excellence every year since opening; 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

And more recently, in 2017, we achieved a significant milestone for us; winning the most prestigious award from VisitEngland. In April, we received the highest accolade possible, awarded the winner of ‘Glamping Provider of the Year’, officially the best glamping destination in England.
