LIFESTYLE platform Muddy Stilettos has announced the local winners of its regional awards.

Each year, Muddy Stilettos sets out to find some of the best businesses in the country and highlights everything from bars to delis, and salons to yoga studios.  

Now it has announced who is the cream of the crop across Cornwall.

A spokesperson from the organisation said: “The cocktail glasses were overflowing as the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2024 romped to a close last week, having reached a mind-blowing 10-million people nationally over eight weeks and 515,000 votes cast.
