Cotehele, the National Trust property near Saltash, has been given a Silver award at the prestigious Cornwall Tourism Awards 2012. In the 'Large Visitor Attraction of the Year' category, Cotehele was took second place in recognition of the popular visitor attraction's excellent standard throughout.

Cotehele has become a year round visitor attraction and last year saw over 130,000 people come through the gates. This is now the second year in a row that it has been picked out by the judging panel.

Charmian Saunders, Cotehele Visitor Services & Volunteer Manager, says: "We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised with this silver award. I was honoured to be at the Headland Hotel to receive this award on behalf of Cotehele in recognition of the amount of hard work the staff and volunteers put in to make Cotehele such a wonderful visitor attraction in Cornwall. Congratulations to the other winners as well. It is humbling to be in the same ring with such high calibre establishments."

The category had some stiff competition with The National Maritime Museum in Falmouth taking the gold award and Tate St Ives winning the bronze.

Joan Symons, Cornwall Council Portfolio Holder for Tourism, Culture and Leisure, added: "To be recognised as being among the best tourism businesses in the UK's favourite visitor destination is a significant achievement, especially in such difficult times. Each and every one of the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners should be extremely proud of themselves and I hope that the Award titles drive the businesses forward to an even more successful 2013."
