A seaside holiday location has picked up a nomination for a national tourism award.

Mill Farm Eco Barn, a site of luxury self-catering cottages in Winterton, has been given the nod by tourism body VisitEngland, as it announced the finalists for its Awards for Excellence competition.

The cottages, which are in converted barns, are one of four finalists for family-friendly accommodation, the category's only East Anglian finalist.

It will be up against Bosinver Farm Cottages in Trelowth near Cornwall, Darwin Forest Country Park in Matlock and the Olde House in Cornwall.

Sally Balcolmbe, VistiEngland chief executive, said: 'The awards shine a spotlight on an industry driven by the highest-calibre people and organisations, who deliver unforgettable experiences for visitors, raising the profile of England as a world-class destination and driving the economic benefits of tourism across the regions.'
