New tourism business leading the way in Worcestershire

Rowley Farm Holidays has been recognised as the best tourism business in Worcestershire at the Visit Worcestershire Tourism Awards 2021/22.  The awards, held on Friday 11th March at Stanbrook Abbey, celebrated tourism businesses from across the county.

After winning the New Tourism Business category and being highly commended in the Self Catering category, Rowley Farm Holidays were delighted to go on to win the prestigious Winner of Winners Award at the end of the evening.

The judges praised the well thought out interiors designs and memorable key features of the properties. In particular the judges loved the helping hand that the owner, Clare John, gave to each of the guests to ensure they felt welcome during their stay.

Set within 50 acres of farmland in Holt Heath, Worcestershire, Rowley Farm Holidays provide a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Guests can relax in the luxury self-catering cottages within a farmland setting and enjoy a seductive slice of country life.

On winning the awards, Clare John commented  ‘After such a challenging couple of years for the tourism industry, it was wonderful to come together and champion our outstanding county. We are truly honoured to be recognised as a leading figure in the tourism industry for Worcestershire.’

Clare and family moved to Rowley Farm in September 2016. Keen to provide her girls with the farming lifestyle that she had been brought up with, the initial plan was to create a small holding.  After the family had moved in they looked at the beautiful but redundant red bricked buildings on their farm and took up the challenge of converting them into boutique holiday lets.

Aways passionate about championing local businesses, Clare ensured where possible everything was sourced locally. This passion for supporting local continues has become a key part of the Rowley Farm ethos. Clare is constantly recommending local Worcestershire products, services and attractions to all of the guests that stay.
