Cornwall Tourism Awards 2022/23 WINNERS!
We are thrilled to announce that two Best of British Holiday Parks won the top accolades at the Cornwall Tourism Awards recently!
Truro Cathedral was the venue for the 21st annual award ceremony, celebrating all that Cornwall has to offer for holiday makers while feasting on Cornish food and drink. 65 awards were presented in a variety of categories and we’re delighted that Polmanter Touring Park and Hendra Holiday Park won on the night.
First, Polmanter Touring Park took Gold in the Camping And Caravanning Park Of The Year category. The team are rightly proud of their achievements and are thrilled to have taken the top honour.
Polmanter has been run by the Osborne family for over 50 years. Their considerable experience, combined with the family’s love of camping, means they know what makes touring and camping holidays extra special. And this is why they won the Gold Award!
The park offers five star facilities, which include a stunning spot on the coast with views over the Atlantic and the Cornish moors, a variety of pitches and services, an outdoor heated pool (open from May to September), tennis courts, dog friendly facilities, a regular shuttle bus to St Ives and a shop selling Cornish produce. So, if you’d like to visit St Ives and the West Cornish coastline, Polmanter is highly recommended!
Additionally, Hendra Holiday Park in Newquay won Holiday Park Of The Year, and Chris North from the team won the Unsung Hero Award!
And to put the icing on the cake, Hendra won the Winner of Winners Award! The evening ended with a standing ovation for the park, who were recognised for their multiple successes over 50 years of operation.
Hendra have had quite the month as they also won the South West In Bloom Award, which celebrated the hard work of the grounds team, who keep the park looking beautiful all season long!
For fun family holidays by the sea, Hendra is the perfect choice for your next getaway to Cornwall. Hendra is a Cornish word that means ‘home farm’, and very much has a homely feel, having been a family run park for over 50 years.
The park has a range of leisure facilities, is well positioned for trips to Newquay and along the whole Cornish coastline. And most importantly of all, it is five star rated and independently owned, as are all our holiday parks!
Everyone at the Best of British Group want to congratulate our colleagues at Polmanter and Hendra on their achievements and we wish them every success for the 2023 season. Both parks open toward the end of March/early April.
