Mr Cooper also highly-commended Mr Holtby of Greenlands Road for his small back garden and awarded his ‘judge’s overall choice of all entries’ to Hungate Holiday Cottages.
Jerry and Barbara Watts, managers of the holiday cottages, said they were delighted to have won the awards.
“Guests at Hungate Cottages are always telling us how wonderful they think the gardens are, and this confirms it,” they said.
