When researching for our awards over the years we were shocked at how many awards existed for super luxurious, five star properties but how few honoured the budget end of the spectrum. 

Every year thousands of budget conscious guests rely on good quality, well priced, clean and comfortable accommodation and we felt that needed to be recognised. So we created the Budget with a Twist award. 

This is an award celebrating those properties that offer rooms at an average daily rate of under £50, whilst still providing clean, comfortable accommodation, and something more interesting and quirky than a soulless budget-chain hotel. Providing a very necessary and often overlooked service, to a great standard in terms of service and cleanliness, at a reasonable price.

Thank you for all your entries, we have been blown away with the number and the quality of submissions that we received this year. It has made selecting a winner especially difficult for our judges! But they got there in the end. And the winner is...

Broomhills Farm River Eco Pods
- Cumbria
Set in ancient Cumbrian woodland beside the River Lyne, the wooden ecopods are described by the owners as being like ‘camping without the tent’.

The pods provide a family friendly holiday, close to nature, at a fraction of the usual cost. The quirky accommodation at this property is proving a hit, as highlighted by reviews on its website. Judges were impressed by the unusual nature of the accommodation and the experience
