Speaking of her award, Angela Foster from High Barn Cottages said:
“We are thrilled to win this award and proud to be part of such a flourishing network.
“We put 90 per cent Yorkshire food in our complimentary hampers for our cottage guests including our own eggs, fruit and veg (when available) & apple juice, pasteurised for us by Tim Sellers at Carr House Farm.
“We do our very best with our hampers to promote local produce that our guests will remember long after they leave East Yorkshire.”
Chair of the EYLFN, Graham Ward was delighted with the results and said:
“The members had all worked hard on their nominations and made us a food and hospitality network to be proud of.”
