The team at Thornton Hall Country Park were thrilled to WIN the 'Best in Leisure & Tourism' Award for the 2nd year!Thornton Hall Country Park were delighted to have made the finals for the first time at the 2018 Red Rose Awards for the 'Best Leisure & Tourism Business'.

Mike Dilger and his team from BBC's The One Show were filming in the North of England for a ‘Snow Special’ about the 'Beast from The East’ and how the harsh weather was affecting businesses.
They approached us (Thornton Hall Country Park) and we were delighted to help out! We are open 7 days a week and all our animals need our attention - even more so in severe weather conditions.
Farmer Benny (Peter Benson) our Lifestock Manager did a fantastic job in front of the camera and the whole team couldn’t wait to tune in and watch 'The One Show' later on.
