HOLIDAY homeowner Anne Dauleu is celebrating after picking up an award for her property, Shepherds Cabin at Titterstone.

The holiday home took silver in the Best for Glamping category at the Sykes Gem Awards – a national travel awards programme run by UK holiday rental firm Sykes Holiday Cottages.

This quirky cabin, which has an undercover outdoor seating area, barbecue, hot tub and stunning views, beat off tough competition from other shortlisted glamping properties.

The judging panel were impressed by the style and facilities on offer, along with guest feedback on cleanliness, comfort and value for money.

After receiving planning permission in 2017, the build of Shepherds Cabin at Titterstone took Ms Dauleu almost a year to complete, working with a local builder and decorating the cabin herself.

Since becoming available to holidaymakers in September 2018, Ms Dauleu has reaped the rewards of a surge in staycations to Shropshire, and the property has been almost fully booked since opening its doors.

“I’ve put so much into making Shepherds Cabin at Titterstone a success, and constantly get great feedback from our visitors, but this award really does mean a lot,” she said.

The Sykes Gem Awards, in its third year, celebrates the best people and properties in the UK’s growing holiday cottage sector and were judged by a panel of industry experts.
