Award-winning Wisbech businesses The Secret Garden Touring Park and Mile Tree Brewery are celebrating the arrival of their brown signs.
Brown tourist signs direct visitors to the area to local attractions and tourist facilities.
Owners Neil and Lesley Pollington said: “We would like to say a big thank-you to Wisbech Tourism and Cambridgeshire Highways for this incredible gift.
“We cannot believe how popular it has become and how it has developed in this short time.
“It’s very exciting working on-site with the other business - Mile Tree Brewery, Fenland Bushcraft and Bramblebee Farm.

“He’s the Bear Grills of Fenland,” said Neil. “His survival courses are very popular with young families and this is another great asset to The Secret Garden experience.”
During 2016 the bush craft aspect of the site will be extended to incorporate mid-week corporate teambuilding courses, as well as the development of glamping pitches.
The park’s third food and craft fair, which showcases the products of the brewery, Bramblebee Farm and the work of Fenland Bush Craft, will take place on June 25.
Other guests include The English Spirit Distillery from Newmarket, who will present their famous toffee vodka; George Brammer of Stanford Cheese and Wine showcasing their truffle brie and Laddies Ice Cream of Holbech along with many specialist food and craft stalls.
“Lesley and I are always interested in new local food and craft product, and local businesses that can work with us for the wider benefit of local tourism,” Neil added.
“This special area of England has so much to offer visitors.”
