The Cotswolds Awards 2016

We’re excited to announce this year’s Cotswolds Awards Winners. From January to the 7th of September, we have received thousands of nominations for businesses and people in the Cotswolds who are all so great at what they do, that their customers felt they deserve an award – that makes them all winners, we think!

From the 7th of September to today, the 7th of November, every single business that was nominated, has been voted for by the public in The Cotswolds Awards, the only completely impartial and public awards in the Cotswolds.

These are all the winners in this year’s Cotswolds Awards. Congratulations to all!
