our awards

The Dandelion Hideaway enjoys an intimate, exclusive atmosphere and is an idyllic place for an escape. We are immensely proud of the gorgeous, truly luxury, glamping experience we’ve created here at the farm over the years, ….and here are some of the Awards we’ve won.

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 2017.

Regionally, we are consistent winners too at the Leicestershire Excellence in Tourism Awards (Self Catering) in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. In 2015, we were presented with the VisitEngland ROSE award in Recognition Of Service Excellence. This award from VisitEngland is given only to a handful of properties nationally that are deemed to go the extra mile. A dazzling achievement.

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, 2017 and 2018. In 2018 we were further recognised with the TripAdvisor ‘Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame’. The ‘Hall of Fame’ was created to honour those businesses that have earned a Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years.

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