Why holidaying in Suffolk is very Inn Style
Suffolk-based travel tech company Inn Style proud to champion
the county to help win a BBC Countryfile Magazine Award 2018
Everyone who enjoys Suffolk’s charms is being encouraged to vote online to help secure recognition for Suffolk as a top holiday destination in one of the UK’s top tourism award competitions. Few organisations understand the beauty of Suffolk as a holiday destination better than Inn Style. Based in Adastral Park in Martlesham, Suffolk, this leading travel-technology organisation has been championing
our beautiful county since they formed in 2013 and are now proud to get behind Suffolk in the upcoming BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2018.
As one of the five finalists in the Holiday Destination of the Year category, Suffolk enjoys mighty rivers, glorious seascapes and 50 miles of intoxicating coastline. Its beauty is unquestionable and presents a variety of places to explore, whether visiting with friends, family or on your own. Inn Style are at the forefront of supporting the county’s nomination with the #BackSuffolk social media campaign to create awareness of the awards and encourage those that love Suffolk to vote by 5 th March. These national awards recognise the best of the British countryside, from mighty landmarks and outstanding nature reserves, to superb national parks and fine rural pubs. They celebrate many well-loved places across the UK so it is a huge achievement for Suffolk to make it on to the shortlist of the holiday destination category with such stiff competition from other regions.
Tourism in Suffolk provides a much-needed source of revenue for the county as a whole, as well as for individual businesses providing services for the tourist sector. Figures revealed in the latest Economic Impact of Tourism report show the county’s town Ipswich saw a 2.5% surge in tourism last year, with more than 3.5 million people taking trips to Suffolk’s county town alone. Bursting with huge skies, nature reserves and medieval towns and villages, there is gallons of rustic charm in Suffolk which spreads throughout the entire county, not least Framlingham Castle. Since Suffolk’s own Ed Sheeran’s phenomenal 2017 hit single Castle On The Hill, Framlingham has seen a huge increase in the number of visitors together with a 25% growth in enquiries for Suffolk holiday lets in the town.
The county also draws in artists and writers for its creative inspiration and the bounty of great produce and restaurants make it a special spot for
foodies, nature lovers and beach-goers alike. Adrian Melrose, CEO of Inn Style says, “ We work with hotels and accommodation owners all over the world but have close relationships with those here in Suffolk. For some time they have been telling us they are seeing a year on year increase in bookings and an ever-growing demand for holiday accommodation in Suffolk. We hear stories of how guests visiting from outside the county adore being here and return repeatedly to enjoy our glorious county all year round. Those guests are all wanting to book online and we are delighted that our technology helps accommodation owners achieve that. Suffolk caters for all ages, budgets and interests, there is no question that those looking for a staycation in the UK will not be disappointed by holidaying in Suffolk”.
BBC Countryfile Magazine judge, Phoebe Smith says, “ The quieter side of East Anglia has bird reserves, nature reserves, beautiful little villages and
the people are incredibly friendly, with honesty boxes where you can get fruit. It’s wonderfully welcoming .” To get behind Suffolk and vote for it in the Holiday Destination of the Year category, go to the BBC Countryfile website and follow the link.
