A Chester travel company is up for a top travel award for the third time running.

Sykes Cottages, which has relocated from Hoole to Chester city centre, has been shortlisted, for a British Travel Award.

Chief executive Miles Hill said: “We are delighted to be in the running for Best Large UK Holiday Cottage Booking Company for the third year running.

“2015 has been a fantastic year for us already. We secured a new investment partner at the beginning of the year, have been identified as one of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain, and we’ve now completed our move into our new 10,000 square feet office at Richard House on Lower Bridge Street.”
