Awards Season

Sharrow Bay has enjoyed a Summer of National and Regional Award Nominations - this is our story so far.

Paula and Frank - long serving members of the Sharrow Bay Team were only just pipped at the post for the 'Outstanding Contribution to Excellence' at The Cumbria Tourism 2017 Awards. With more than 60 years of dedicated service and unstinting, unceasing perfectionism between them; the care they have put into ensuring every guest was cosseted and cared for - and served on spotless silver and glassware - we thought they'd be hard to beat. Sometimes the behind the scenes everyday work that contributes to the overall experience is under-appreciated, and we thought the fact they'd done so, with as much care for the millionth time as for the first deserved recognition. We still think they're winners.

The Food Awards England nominated us for the second year in a row, in their Best Hotel Restaurant Category. As this is voted for by guests it really was an honour - thank you.

Oliver, our manager, was included in Boutique Hotelier's Unsung Heroes of 2017 list; and then further shortlisted for Best Hotel Manager in their Annual Awards, in a very strong list.

And still pending... voting has only just closed, Sharrow Bay is on Condé Nast Johansens Awards Shortlist for The Best Waterside Hotel 2017.

Thank you to all our guests who have nominated us for awards, and thank you to our team who work so hard to deliver a great experience at Sharrow Bay.
