Leading tourism businesses from across the south west were celebrating in style last night (Mar 24) as over 90 awards were presented at the 2022/23 South West Tourism Excellence Awards.

The annual event was the culmination of 12 months of entry, judging and feedback as nearly 300 winners, supporters and tourism leaders celebrated at Eden Project for the first time in ten years.

482 entries were submitted from across the region including Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Among the Cornish winners, Hendra Holiday Park scooped Gold in the Holiday Park of the Year category, while the Idle Rocks also took the top accolade in the Restaurant of the Year category.

Robin Barker, director of Services for Tourism, which manages the awards, said: “What a delight to be in the company of the region’s best, and at one of our most iconic venues.  The conversations and celebrations were a real joy – I wouldn’t have missed it for the world!”
