New Enterprise of the Year

Each year sees new tourism businesses opening in this area and some stand out for quality. One such new business offers an innovative combination of accommodation and food. The facilities provided to staying visitors by night are available to other visitors during the day thereby maximising the space in these well-appointed facilities. Located in Newton, the business is well placed to maximise cycle and walking opportunities along with wildlife study. In spite of suffering badly with their road being closed by the County Council shortly after launching, the owners, Matthew and Helena Lewis have worked tirelessly to sustain customers at this year’s New Enterprise of the Year Clerk Laithe Lodge.
