Double award winners at Stratford Butterfly Farm!
Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm is celebrating after scooping two recent awards especially in such difficult and challenging times. The popular attraction has been awarded the Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice Award 2020 and been awarded 1st place in Stratford in Bloom within the Tourism Properties category.
Although the Butterfly Farm was the only entrant in the tourism category due to it being the only attraction with gardens open in Stratford, the judges unanimously agreed the Farm deserved 1st place due to its stunning display of colourful wildflowers. The lavender which lined the entrance pathway was also particularly impressive this year. The wildflower garden was prepared during lockdown and bloomed in perfect timing when the Farm re-opened on 4 July. The annual Stratford in Bloom presentation evening took place online on 9 October to celebrate local gardening achievements. The Butterfly Farm received an engraved trophy and certificate.
Each year, Tripadvisor, the world’s largest travel website, pulls together all the reviews and ratings that travellers share from across the globe — and uses that information to spotlight the best. Traveller’s Choice (formerly Certificate of Excellence) recognises businesses that earn consistently great user reviews and winners are ranked among the top 10% of businesses on Tripadvisor. Upon reopening the Butterfly Farm has safely welcomed hundreds of visitors to see the stunning displays of tropical butterflies and received glowing reviews.
Jane Kendrick, Marketing Manager at Stratford Butterfly Farm said “The team are absolutely delighted to have won these two awards and have something to celebrate. We opened our wildflower garden back in 2010 and it’s an incredibly special haven in which butterflies can live. The team are immensely proud of the positive feedback The Farm has received and would like to thank everyone that has taken the time to leave a review on Tripadvisor. This accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business, especially in these unprecedented times”.
