“This is the first time we have been selected as Finalist in this prestigious annual award and it is thanks to the many local people, our business partners and the coach companies and group travel operators that bring their guests to the World of James Herriot and Herriot Country. Whilst this is not yet the final result, to be shortlisted alongside the other prestigious businesses is a great honour and a welcome boost”. comments The World of James Herriot’s managing director and chairman of the Herriot Country Tourism Group, Ian Ashton.

The attraction is actively seeking coach business and works in partnership with other Herriot Country Tourism members as part of Welcome to Yorkshire’s Herriot Country.
