Toast 2020 with Brunch at Hencote

With the new decade on the horizon what better way to spend the first day of 2020 than with family and friends here at Hencote.

We’ll be open New Year’s Day and we’re putting on a special brunch for all our guests and diners.

The brunch will run from 10 am – 12:30 pm and is £25 pp. We’ll have a variety of tea, freshly ground coffee and fruit juice available as well as a choice of a glass of our award-winning Evolution sparkling wine, or to cure the hangover, our very own Bloody Mary.

You can then choose from a delicious selection of dishes including; eggs benedict with crispy bacon and homemade hollandaise sauce or sliced avocado, poached egg, wilted spinach, chilli flakes and toasted brioche.

Whatever you choose our New Year’s Day brunch will be the perfect pick-me-up.

Luxury glamping shortlisted for tourism award

We’ve got some great news. We have been shortlisted for Camping, Glamping, Holiday Park of the Year at the inaugural West Midlands Tourism Awards.

2019 has been a fantastic year for everyone at Hencote. We’ve celebrated the first birthday of The View Restaurant, Bar & Balcony and successfully released a number of estate wines – with more to come in 2020.

Not only that, but we’ve won a bronze medal at the International Wine Challenge for our Evolution sparkling wine.

Venues from Birmingham to Bewdley and Stratford-upon-Avon to Solihull will contest categories including B&B / Guest House of the Year; Business Events Venue of the Year; and Large Visitor Attraction of the Year.

The 15 successful attractions and hospitality businesses will be revealed at a special ceremony on 26th February 2020. This will be held at the University of Birmingham’s Great Hall.

Regional winners

Regional winners will automatically feed up to the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence, which takes place in June.

Supported by the West Midlands Growth Company, the aim is to attract visitors and events to the region. The awards will celebrate the venues that have helped to bring a record 131 million visitors to the area in 2018. This is a 2.6% increase on the previous year.

The West Midlands’ tourism industry is now worth £12.6 billion. This is a rise of 6.7%, with the sector supporting more than 135,000 jobs.

It’s a fantastic way to end the year and we’re extremely proud of what we have achieved so far. The luxury glamping village has proved very popular with our guests who are looking for that unique luxury experience.

We’re going to be up against other worthy finalists so it will be exciting to see if we can come out on top. If you would like to know more about our luxury accommodation then you can get in touch with the Hencote team at [email protected]
