Whitby-based holiday cottage company Yorkshire Coastal Cottages has won an international award.

It beat numerous companies to be named Luxury Accommodation Specialist of the Year 2016 for the UK by the Luxury Travel Guide Global Awards, which attracted more than 55,000 entries

The judging panel, which included leaders from the hospitality and tourism industry, cited the “impressive volume and range of luxury properties” and said the company’s “unrivalled service and commitment to excellence” earned them the accolade.

The company represents nearly 100 holiday cottages along the coast and specialises in four and five star properties. Co-founding partner Susan Goss-Clements said: “It’s a great and impressive affirmation of all our hard work and dedication, and testament to the beautiful properties that we proudly represent.”
