Plum Tree Cottage, in north Norfolk has won the award for best self-catering accommodation in the 2010 EDP Tourism in Norfolk Awards. It is one of two self-catering properties converted from traditional Norfolk barns on East View Farm, Ashmanhaugh, owned by John and Jane Pond.

“We’re delighted to have won this award,” said Jane. “When we converted these barns we took great care to retain the oak-beamed character of the original buildings, while providing the very latest in comfort. I think the judges liked the fact that in Nutmeg and Plum Tree Cottages we have been able to create an attractive holiday escape here in the heart of the north Norfolk countryside.”

Peter Waters, editor of the Eastern Daily Press, said: “The EDP Tourism in Norfolk Awards highlight the unique offering of our county: the wonderful coastline and countryside allied with superb accommodation and hospitality venues, great restaurants and pubs, and our brilliant visitor attractions, museums and historical sights.
