Beverley Holidays and sister site Whitehill Country Park in Paignton are cracking open the champagne following a hat trick of tourism honours at the Devon Tourism Awards 2015.

The family-run holiday parks overcame tough competition from a record 174 entries to win three prestigious awards at the glittering ceremony in Plymouth in November.

The celebrations started early on in the night when Beverley Holidays took the first much-coveted gold of the evening in the Holiday Park & Holiday Village category.

Shortly after, Whitehill Country Park took to the stage to collect a silver award for Dog Friendly Accommodation, followed by a bronze in the Camping & Caravanning category.

Held in association with tourism body Visit Devon, the sixth annual Devon Tourism Awards were attended by many leading figures from the region’s top tourism businesses.

Marketing director of Beverley Holidays and Whitehill Park, Claire Jeavons, said: “We are absolutely thrilled with our award hat trick which is the result of a great deal of hard work and dedication from the Beverley and Whitehill teams.

“We are honoured to be recognised in such a prestigious competition, and our gold, silver and bronze accolades are proof that the investments we have made in our accommodation and facilities mean we are delivering the best holiday experience possible.”

Victoria Hatfield, chair of Visit Devon, said: “The quality of the visitor offering that Devon delivers increases year on year, and this is testament to the dedication, commitment and investment from the businesses nominated in the Devon Tourism Awards.”
