Tourism businesses in north Norfolk were among the winners when the region's top attractions and accommodation were honoured.

Bewilderwood, near Hoveton, was named best large attraction at the East of England Enjoy England awards for excellence.

And the Broad House Hotel in Wroxham is the best small hotel, while there was a double success for East Runton, where Incleborough House was the best bed and breakfast / guest house, and Stable Cottage best for self catering.

Simon Egan, co-founder of Bewilderwood, said: “Bewilderwood is a unique attraction which offers something very special to visitors.

“Since we opened in 2007 we have all worked very hard to bring our wild and magical wood to life and it's fantastic to receive recognition for our remarkably dedicated team. We are committed to making Bewilderwood an even more memorable experience in the years to come.”

Tourism is worth about £5.2 billion a year to the region's economy and employs 180,000 people.

The awards, presented by BBC Newsnight's Gavin Esler at a ceremony in Ickworth, near Bury St Edmunds, last Thursday celebrated the quality of the tourism industry in the eastern region.

The winners will now be entered into the national awards which will be held in April 2010.
