North Walsham, Holt and Hindringham national friendliest B&B finalists attend London awards ceremony
A trio of landladies will be returning empty-handed to their north Norfolk B&Bs after missing out on a national trophy this lunchtime.
The three: Jenny Harmer, from Chimneys, Norwich Road, North Walsham; Allison Manders, of the Old Telephone Exhamge, New Street, Holt; and Wendy Dolton, from Field House, Hindringham, were among an elite 25 finalists for the Automobile Association's (AA) new Friendliest Bed and Breakfast of the Year award.
They were wined and dined at a ceremony held in London's Royal Horseguards Hotel where the award was won by Lorraine Allanson, of Rains Farm, Allerston, North Yorkshire.
The finalists were chosen by AA inspectors from more than 3,000 on its list of bed and breakfast providers.
Simon Numphud, AA Hotel Services Manager, said, 'The AA Bed and Breakfast Awards are a key opportunity for us to recognise the dedication and hard work of our B&B owners across the country. In a year such as this with so many patriotic events taking place the Great British B&B is a true national treasure.'
