Official Visit England Five Star award
Don’t be fooled by imitations. Visit England’s stringent assessors inspect the property from top to bottom and we can vouch for the thoroughness of the inspection – absolutely everything is scrutinised, from the weight of the cutlery (it has to be of a certain quality), whether DVDs are in the correct boxes, the quality of the bedding, whether all the crockery is of high standard and matches, through to cleanliness and decoration. It is a tough process to go through, but well worth it when you get that award…
VisitEngland Gold Award
These awards are given in recognition of exceptional quality within a property’s star rating, or for outperforming a star rating. Needless to say, we are exceptionally proud of our Gold !
Waitby School is a member of an initiative being delivered under a new arm of Nurture Lakeland called Nurture Eden. ‘Green Eden’ is based exclusively in East Cumbria and is supporting businesses in and around the Eden Valley to develop a wide-ranging programme of low impact, responsible tourism activity.
Waitby School is also proud to have been awarded a Silver award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS). This scheme is aimed at making tourism operations more sustainable while still delivering a high quality service. There are over 150 individual measures in various criteria that we were judged upon. We are particularly pleased to receive this award because it shows that five-star gold quality can co-exist with environmental responsibility and sustainability.
