Finalist nomination in prestigious AA category

Well well, I've just opened the post and am delighted to say that I have been nominated as a finalist in the upcoming AA awards. The ceremony will be held in London on Monday 16th May, but alas I will be on Everest.

So the long and short of it is:

'Dear Mr Mosedale

Congratulations! In the eighteenth year of this prestigious award we are delighted to confirm that you are one of only 25 proprietors who have been nominated by our inspectors from over 3,500 establishments in the AA Guest Accommodation scheme as a finalist in the 2011 AA Friendliest Landlady of the Year competition.'

Regardless of the fact that I am far from being a landlady ... the long and short of it is that Elm Tree Lodge has been nominated as being a friendly place to stay at and we are in the top 1% of AA Guest Accommodation establishments.

What is particularly great here is that when you don't even know you are being assessed and so haven't been jumping through hoops or been on ones best behaviour, but you get nominated, it's quite a compliment.

Must go and iron my dress.


  1. Congratulations Tim, you most certainly deserve it - you're a fantastic landlady! We had an amazing weekend, made even more so by your walk recommendations and lovely accommodation. Good luck on The Bige, we'll be following the blog as we're driving, but most of all, we look forward to seeing you in that dress!

    All the best,

    Lisa and Tony

  2. Hi Lisa and Tony,

    Many thanks for that. Have a great trip and we'll no doubt compare notes sometime in the future.

    See you again - Tim
