Devon park treads red carpet in “holiday Oscars”
Well over half a million votes were cast – and it’s now revealed that Devon’s Beverley Holidays is officially one of the top three destinations for park holidays in Britain.
The verdict of UK families was announced at the 2017 British Travel Awards this winter when the Paignton park scooped a bronze accolade in the contest.
It beat thousands of other eligible parks to take a place in the final line-up of tourism super-stars competing in the “Best UK Family Holiday/Holiday Park Operator” category.
Members of family-owned Beverley stepped into the spotlight to receive their award at a high-profile winter wonderland gala night staged at London’s Battersea Park.
Known as the “holiday Oscars”, the British Travel Awards attract hundreds of thousands of votes each year from people who provide feedback on their experiences.
Director and third generation Beverley Holidays owner Nicola Furneaux said: “We are all incredibly proud to have taken a top place in this competition.
“Knowing that this prestigious award has been voted for by our guests makes it especially touching, and we owe a huge thank-you to everyone who helped us walk the red carpet.
“Next year sees our holiday park celebrate its diamond anniversary as we move into our sixtieth year of welcoming guests to the English Riviera.
“This award is confirmation that our commitment to providing the best possible holiday experience for families is as strong now as it was six decades ago,” added Nicola.
British Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton, said: “The British Travel Awards is the largest consumer voted awards programme in the world.
“This year over seven hundred thousand votes were cast by the travelling public to determine the winners – and to win is truly an accolade of excellence.”
Beverley Holidays comprises three holiday parks offering boutique holiday caravans, luxury lodges, camping and touring, coupled with a wealth of leisure and entertainment facilities.
