Rural Business Awards – press release

MarGins Holidays – Press Release




A local company is in the running to be named one of the best rural businesses in the UK after being shortlisted for a regional Rural Business Award.


MARGINS WALKING AND GLAMPING HOLIDAYS from NORTH NORFOLK has been shortlisted in the BEST RURAL TOURISM BUSINESS at the 2019/20 Rural Business Awards, held in partnership with Amazon. The local company will battle it out against fellow rural businesses, entrepreneurs and enterprises from across the region for a place at the national final.


MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays launched in 2017, enabling guests to immerse themselves in walking and experiencing all that the beautiful Norfolk Coast Path National Trail has to offer, while their fully equipped safari tent ‘magically’ moves each day, along with their luggage. With a breakfast hamper full of delicious Norfolk produce to start each day, MarGins Holidays are a true Norfolk experience.

A recent guest quoted; “We’ve had an amazing adventure thanks to you [MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays] and one we will remember and recount to friends and family for many years to come”.

This unique and exclusive business is owned and run by Gin Wilson-North with the help of Mark, her husband and beloved pooch, Brylie.


The Rural Business Awards 2019/20, in partnership with Amazon, will mark the Awards’ fifth year of celebrating the success of businesses across the UK’s rural economy – a segment which employs in excess of 3.4 million people in over 750,000 businesses in England alone. The Awards are organised by rural businesses for rural businesses with the aim of celebrating the achievements of rural businesses and developing a strong network for rural business owners.


Speaking after being shortlisted for an award, Gin Wilson-North said: “I’m absolutely delighted, and rather overwhelmed, to be shortlisted alongside so many prestigious businesses for the Best Rural Tourism Business for the East. I still have to pinch myself sometimes that my little idea for a new business is now in its 3rdseason and I just love that we enable our guests to experience such amazing adventures, making wonderful memories on our holidays”


Director and Co-Founder of The Rural Business Awards, Anna Price, said:“The 2019/20 Awards have seen record numbers of entries and it’s encouraging to see so many rural businesses express a desire to celebrate their successes on a regional and national scale. We are passionate about creating a nurturing environment where rural businesses can develop, and this starts by showcasing the great work they do. On behalf of everyone at the Rural Business Awards, we want to say well done to MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays and all the shortlisted businesses,and wish them luck ahead of the regional finals.”


The Rural Business Awards is the brainchild of Leicestershire businesswomen Anna Price and Jemma Clifford, who wanted to showcase the wealth of entrepreneurial talent in rural areas of Britain.


The Awards are organised by rural business for rural business, with winners in the 12categories – ranging from Best Rural Start-up and BestRural Diversification Project; through to Best Rural Professional Services Business and Rural Digital, Communications or Media Business – decided by an independent panel of judges drawn from the rural business sector, rural public sector agencies, and rural charitable organisations.


The Rural Business Awards is hosting a series of regional finals in the North, East, Midlands, South East, South West, Wales and Northern Ireland, throughout October and November 2019, ahead of the NationalFinal next February.
