Devon Tourism Awards 2016

In 2015, Hele Valley Holiday Park was nominated and ultimately took away the Bronze award in the Holiday Park & Holiday Village of the year category at the Devon Tourism Awards. Earlier this year we were amazed to hear that we were shortlisted for the third year in a row, this time not just for one award, but two!

The nominations were in both the Camping & Caravanning Park of the Year category, as well as the Holiday Park & Village of the Year category.

We were invited along with Devon’s top businesses to attend the 7th annual Devon Tourism Awards held on Thursday 10th November in the Great Hall of the University of Exeter. Hosted by Judi Spiers and with special guest Jo Pavey, throughout the evening the awards were presented to winners in categories as diverse as Spa & Wellbeing, Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs and Attractions.

Ilfracombe was noticeably put on the map with several outstanding local businesses showing their hard work and playing a big part in contributing to Devon’s tourism. Congratulations to other fellow-Ilfracombe award winning businesses such as Hele Bay’s Beach Cove, Ilfracombe Sea Safari, Nelly May’s Parlour and also a highly commended close neighbour of ours – Hele Corn Mill.

After a nail-biting evening and the awards had finally been announced, we are thrilled to reveal that Hele Valley Holiday Park is the proud owner of two Silver Awards! 

We are now officially Devon’s Silver Camping & Caravanning Park of the Year along with being Devon’s Silver Holiday Park & Village of the Year.

Chairman of the Awards Panel, David Fursdon, says: “I know how important the tourist industry is to Devon. The wonderful reputation that this very special County enjoys in this area depends on maintaining the highest standards and this year's winners across a wide range of categories illustrate just that and personify one word; "Excellence".”

Awards organiser Robin Barker was delighted by this year’s awards: “This year’s winners exemplify so much of what is great about Devon. Innovation, outstanding service and superb experiences. Many congratulations to everyone involved.”
