Quality Tourism

Quality is what Ribble Valley has in abundance, but to achieve it requires constant investment, rebranding and new ideas. One such business continues to stay ahead of the game, and in the last year invested significantly in a stylish and tasteful redesign and has extended  to maintain it as one of the premier weddings venues in the north, if not the country.  To create even more exclusivity, a totally new entrance has been created with the wedding facilities extended internally as well as enhanced externally. The new facilities are matched by the outstanding customer service always on offer here.

The first winner of Quality Tourism Award goes to Mitton Hall owned by James Places.

Running a business in a very rural location can be a challenge and the need to continuously improve the service and enhance facilities is critical to success. One business has done this successfully over a number of years and maintained its positions as one of the premier hotels and wedding venues in the area. Once again this year this hotel has been extended and redesigned to make it even more attractive and inviting to guests. This year a new conservatory has increased capacity and special features making it unique, such as the two hand blown glass chandeliers, designer wallpaper and cast iron pillars. The bio-folding doors create an open vista onto the terrace, gardens and surrounding fells creating the perfect room with a view. The Quality Tourism Award goes to the stunning The Gibbon Bridge Hotel.
