The great and the good of Cornwall’s tourism industry were honoured at the annual Cornwall Tourism Awards this week.
Holiday parks, campsites, hotels and self-catering businesses competed for honours at the glitzy awards bash at Newquay’s Headland Hotel on Thursday night (Nov 2).
Safari Cornwall, near Wadebridge, scooped the award for Glamping & Alternative Accommodation.
Elsewhere there was special mention for Mother Ivey’s Bay Holiday Park’s Patrick Langmaid who was honoured with an award for his outstanding contribution to tourism, highlighting his commitment to investment, accessibility, sustainability and staff rewards.
Speaking after the awards were presented, Mark Warnes, Hoseasons Property and Portfolio Director, said: “We want to congratulate every one of our award winners and finalists. This year the standard of entries was so high that everyone should be incredibly proud of the passion and dedication they put into their own business. It is this level of commitment to Cornwall that ensures visitors have the best experience and the area remains such a popular destination.”
