Future Focus client wins Silver as Best New Business
Treseren, an ‘intimate country house venue’ located in St Newlyn East, has walked away with a silver award in the category for Best New Business at this week’s Cornwall Tourism Awards.
Emma and Paul Caddis bought and lovingly renovated Treseren transforming it onto a welcoming holiday retreat. Treseren opened its doors for the first time as a wedding venue this year.
Emma and Paul entered Treseren into the awards and described its ‘rigorous’ judging process, saying:
“Two judges visited Treseren in September and looked at our offer for small, intimate weddings and boutique holidays. We were judged on the quality of our venue and the service we provide for our guests, as well as this year’s new additions including our fire pit area and beautiful sail cloth over the terrace. The judges also considered how sustainable we are as a business.”
Helping them through their journey Treseren has received coaching on social media and online marketing, a small grant and access to brand and marketing workshops from Unlocking Potential through the Future Focus programme.
Paul, on describing the launch of their new business model in what is an established and busy market, said:
“We needed a convincing personality that we could grow online. The mentoring and help we received from Future Focus fine-tuned our approach and allowed us to deliver a brand to market that has been widely well received and is growing positively. As a reflection of this positive start we have been awarded a Best New Business award by Cornwall Tourism and have a growing online audience. We are very excited to see our business model moving forward and the next stage of growth for Treseren”
