Gloucestershire company shortlisted for Rural Tourism award

A Gloucestershire company is in the running to be one of the best rural businesses in the country.

Wanderlust Camper Co from the Forest of Dean has been shortlisted for the Best Rural Tourism Business at the 2019/20 Rural Business Awards, held in partnership with retail giants Amazon.

They will now battle with fellow companies from the south west region for a place in the national final.

Founded in May 2017 and Annah and Andrew Todman, the Wanderlust Camper Co provides affordable campervan holidays.

Their vans have been described as Cath Kidston on wheels due to their unique, glamping-style décor.

Each campervan is uniquely styled and the exterior finished in a vintage Porsche duck egg blue and offers flexible accommodation for at least four people.

Annah Todman from Wanderlust Camper Co said: We are thrilled to be shortlisted as a finalist for the Best Rural Tourism Business category and looking forward to the regional finals in October.

"As a rural business is the heart of the countryside, the essence of our offering is here, where we are based - making campervanning in the countryside easy, accessible and fun."

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 Wanderlust Camper Co, and all the shortlisted businesses, and wish them luck ahead of the regional finals."

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 National Final next February.
