Awards for Fornside Farm Cottages
VisitEngland 4 Star Self-catering
All the national assessing bodies (VisitEngland*, VisitScotland, Visit Wales and the AA) now assess hotels and guest accommodation (including B&Bs) to the same criteria and award one to five stars. The star ratings reflect the overall quality of the experience. When choosing your accommodation look for the Quality Rose, the official marque of the Enjoy England national tourist board rating scheme.
FairBooking aims to provide the best deal for the customer, the business and the destination. By making a booking with a FairBooking property or through a FairBooking website you are guaranteed the best rates on-line and the revenue stays within the local economy. In addition, FairBooking businesses donate for every direct booking they receive to an approved good cause that supports environmental and community schemes.
