We're delighted to have won a Silver Award in the Holiday Village of the Year category at the prestigious VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2014 Ceremony!
The Silver Award is one of the highest accolades for Excellence in Tourism in England which VisitEngland can bestow. We were presented with our Silver Award at a glittering Awards Ceremony held on 12 May 2014 at The Jockey Club, Cheltenham Racecourse, Cheltenham.
Commenting on the Award James Berresford, VisitEngland’s Chief Executive said "We received hundreds of applications of an extremely high quality this year. Winning a Silver is therefore a considerable achievement and one of the highest accolades for excellence in tourism which VisitEngland can bestow. I warmly congratulate Gwel an Mor Resort.”
And we weren't alone - four other popular Cornish businesses were also up for awards. We joined Hell Bay Hotel, the Pandora Inn, Trebah Garden and Little White Alice in representing Cornwall at the national awards, who won Highly Commended, Highly Commended, Silver and Gold in their respective categories.
Bill Haslam, Owner of Gwel an Mor said: “We’re obviously delighted with taking home a Silver award. We actually believe that this is our 40th award since opening in 2006 and this is testament to our dedicated staff. What better way to spend the ceremony than with our fellow Cornish businesses - we applauded their success and celebrated ours, so it was a fantastic evening.”
