Once again, Gwel an Mor, Cornwall’s leading 5 Star Holiday resort are celebrating an impressive week of award wins with special thanks this time going to their resident furry friends.
At the Cornwall Tourism Awards for 2012, Gwel an Mor’s Feadon Farm and their programme of animal experiences and conservation activities were given the highest honour, with Gold for the Wildlife Friendly Business Award. This new category for 2012 was introduced to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Cornwall Wildlife Trust. The same day Feadon Farm also achieved a Gold honour in recognition of their outstanding work in the David Bellamy Conservation Awards 2012/2013.
Run by the enthusiastic husband and wife team of Gary and Alyson Zammit, Feadon Farm, part of the Gwel an Mor resort, brings wildlife to life by inspiring and educating visitors with hands-on nature encounters focused on British wildlife. The farm is also home for an array of animals, who have mostly been rescued, and who now help to educate and engage all who visit.
At the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2012, Gwel an Mor also went onto receive the Gold award for Outstanding Customer Service for the second year in a row, proving their continued commitment and dedication to staying at the top of the Cornish tourism industry.
This multi-award winning holiday destination and VisitEngland’s current holder of “Most Outstanding Holiday Park 2012”, also scored an impressive Silver in the Holiday Park of the year Award at the Cornwall Tourism event.
Now in their eleventh year, the Cornwall Tourism Awards which are hosted by VisitCornwall have become a recognised barometer for quality and a celebration of the county’s tourism industry’s passion for excellence. As winners, Gwel an Mor will now go on to represent Cornwall in the regional South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2012/13 and potentially the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence in 2013.
Bill Haslam, owner of Gwel an Mor commented: “Once again, my team at Gwel an Mor have made me very proud and these awards are a great recognition for all their hard work, vision and commitment. As Cornwall’s premier self catering resort, we will continue to break the mould and provide a holiday experience like no other in this most beautiful part of the world”.
Finally, in their epic week of wins, Gwel an Mor won the Hoseason’s (the largest accommodation agency in the UK) 2012 Diamond Award for best Lodge Escape , for the exceptional quality and outstanding customer service, for the 6th year in a row!
Malcolm Bell, Head of VisitCornwall, the Cornwall Development tourism service, commented: “No stranger to award charts itself, Cornwall is a winning visitor destination so to be recognised in the Cornwall Tourism Awards and named among the best of the best is an incredible achievement. The level of passion and commitment to quality has been astounding, even more so in what has been a difficult year.”
