Cumbria – In recognition of its outstanding commitment to providing guests with comfortable, cosy accommodations and healthy, humane meals, Cumbria-based Fox Hall Bed and Breakfast has earned a PETA Europe Proggy Award for the Best Vegetarian Bed and Breakfast. Fox Hall has been presented with a glossy certificate and is featured on PETA Europe’s website PETA Europe’s annual Proggy Awards (“Proggy” stands for “progress”) recognise animal-friendly achievements in commerce and culture.

Fox Hall Bed and Breakfast is run by a vegan family whose members go out of their way to provide guests with delicious food in a beautiful Cumbrian location. The names of the different guest rooms – Lavender, Sunflower, Snowdrop and Bluebell – set the scene for a relaxing vegetarian holiday. Just a few examples of the tempting, animal-friendly selections on the breakfast menu include tofu, onions, mushrooms and dill on toast and home-made lemon and sultana pancakes.

“Today’s travellers are attracted to healthy, humane food, and Fox Hall is meeting that demand enthusiastically”, says PETA Europe’s Alexia Weeks. “Cumbria is a beautiful tourist destination, and Fox Hall is just one more reason to visit this breath-taking region.”

Almost 20 Proggy Awards have been given out this year. The other winners include a chocolate company, high-street fashion chains, and independent producers and marketers of vegan foods and cruelty-free personal-care products.
