For me Devon goes hand in hand with holidays, holiday parks and touring getaways. So it's no real surprise that a Devon park is firmly under the spotlight this award season. With well over half a million votes Devon's Beverley Holidays are the highlight of the British Travel Awards.

The verdict came in this winter at the 2017 British Travel Awards where he Paignton park went home with a bronze accolade following the nights results. The park beat thousands of other sites, who were eligible for nomination, to make the final line up of tourism superstars competing in the Best UK Family Holiday/Holiday Park operator category.

The family members, who own the park, stepped forward into the spotlight to receive their award at the winter wonderland gala night that was staged at London's Battersea Park. The event which is known as the "holiday Oscars" attracts hundreds of thousands of votes each year from holiday makers 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.

If you've been to any one of the three, or even all three, of the Beverley site you can see why they have won many accolades over the years. Well done guys keep up the good work.
