Historic country house hotel, Langrish House, near Petersfield, Champneys Forest Mere Spa, Liphook - both in East Hampshire - and the Hawk Conservancy near Andover in the Test Valley, are all celebrating their shortlisting for the coveted Beautiful South Awards 2018/19.  Langrish House is a finalist in the Small/Boutique Hotel category, Champneys is a finalist in the Spa, Pampering and Wellbeing Experience of the Year category and The Hawk Conservancy is up for an Award in the Small Attraction of the Year category.

After six months of deliberation and 121 entries from exceptional tourism businesses across the South and South East, Tourism South East proudly announced this year's crop of finalists in the Award scheme.

The three Hampshire finalists will attend the prestigious awards ceremony to be held at the Grand Hotel in Brighton on the 5th December when they will learn whether they have won Gold, Silver or Bronze.

Nigel Smith, CEO of Tourism South East, said "The Beautiful South Awards are a reminder of the amazing wealth of fantastic tourism businesses and experiences that the South East of England has to offer. The standard just gets better and better which is a reflection of the investment taking place in the industry and the professionalism of the people who work in this important sector…….'

The expert independent judges look for evidence not just of ‘good' but of ‘excellent', hence to be a finalist is a very significant achievement indeed. All finalists will be invited onto the stage at the awards ceremony to collect their Gold, Silver or Bronze trophy, so no-one leaves empty handed!

All 3 finalists expressed delight that all the hard work of staff and the high level of service they offer for their visitors had been recognised and were looking forward to attending the awards ceremony on 5th December when the winners will be announced.
