A bed and breakfast in the north-west has picked up a tourism award, it is reported.
According to the Manchester Evening News, guests staying at Cherry Clough Farmhouse in Denshaw can snuggle down into some wholesale bedding and catch up on their sleep in either a cow shed or barn.
Both buildings were converted into smart holiday accommodation by the farm's owners David and Netti Hall when they decided to open their home as a B&B.
They have now been rewarded for their efforts with the small hotel/B&B of the year prize at the Manchester Tourism awards.
Ms Hall said: "Four years ago the B&B was a tumble-down shed which lay empty, now it's a wonderful business. What makes our place so special is the beautiful views. It gives us a huge advantage over other places."
The Blackpool Gazette recently reported that the nearby Number One South Beach was named best B&B of the year at the recent Lancashire and Blackpool Tourism Awards.
