Heels up… we’re partnering with Muddy Stilletos


Over the next few months we’re very excited to announce that we’re going to be helping our friends at Muddy Stilettoes by supporting the Kent ‘leg’ of their awards for great local businesses.

Every year Muddy readers vote for their favourite places to go, eat out, take their families, their most loved personal trainers, gardeners, shops and small businesses that really make a difference to the places they live and work. As we know Kent so well, we were keen to get involved and make sure we have our fingers on the ever- changing pulse of Kent life. Then we can help our owners and guests know the most popular and talked about places that make Kent a great place to come and stay.

Anyone can nominate businesses in any of the 27 categories. By the end of May a shortlist in each category will be drawn up and by mid-June winners will be announced. For the first time this year there is a national final event in September where the regional winners will meet.

The Muddy Stilettoes Awards are the biggest small business awards in the UK and last year attracted over 53,000 votes.

We can’t wait to see the shortlists by the end of the month but in the meantime want to encourage everyone to get nominating their favourite businesses local to them as part of the Muddy Stilettoes Kent Awards 2022. Look out for the logo (below) on social media and when you’re out and about to show whether your local shop or service is taking part.

Ali Agnew, editor, Muddy Stilettoes Kent said…”I’m so thrilled to have Bloom Stays onboard as our sponsor for the Muddy Awards in Kent this year. I have used their holiday homes myself on more than one occasion. Rowena, Nicky and the team are the absolute epitome of everything we love – a business that curates local gems, goes that extra mile – and above all brings a little bit of fun into your life.”

The awards finals will be held at a (for now) secret Bloom Stays location – a fabulous setting for some very special awards. We can’t wait to share it all with you!

Good Luck all!
