The family owners of Waterrow Touring Park in Wiveliscombe scooped a top accolade in the 2016 Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards.
The park received the gold award in the camping and caravanning category of the competition in which hundreds of other contenders took part. Stepping up to receive the winning trophy at Bristol’s Cadbury Hilton hotel were Lynette and Jamie Cook who, with Jamie’s parents, are Waterrow’s owners.
The husband-and-wife team quit their successful careers in IT and customer services four years ago to take on the tranquil picture-postcard park on the fringes of Exmoor.
Since moving in, Lynette and Jamie have invested much time and energy into caring for the natural surroundings and introducing many new wildlife-friendly features. Lynette said: “One of the things we most value as caravanners is a welcoming and friendly atmosphere on the parks we visit, and that’s what we’ve tried to create here at Waterrow. “I know the awards placed a big emphasis on the quality of hospitality and customer care provided, so we are particularly pleased that this came across.”
