hoseasons 2016 awards

Last night the Hoseasons 2016 Awards Ceremony took place, and Darwin Escapes came out top again! Every year the Hoseasons Conference and Awards ceremony takes place, with UK holiday companies from all over the country donning their best black tie suits and sparkly dresses for the prestigious event…

Darwin Escapes has a history of success at the awards, with Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa winning Best in Britain 2014 and Piran Meadows taking the crown in 2015. And this year Beach Cove Coastal Retreat managed to take home the Best in Britain 2016 for Small Parks & Lodges Award! As well as Darwin Escapes managing to take home 7 other Diamond Hoseasons 2016 Awards!

There was a change at the Hoseasons 2016 Awards this year, instead of one category fits all they went with large park and small park categories, so here are the Darwin Escapes Winners…


2016 winner of family fun for cornwall is sandymouth holiday home park

2016 winner of relax & explore for large parks in cornwall is piran meadows resort & spa

2016 winner of relax & explore for small parks in devon, somerset & dorset is beach cove coastal retreat

2016 winner of relax & explore for large parks in devon, somerset & dorset is cheddar woods resort & spa

2016 winner of large parks in wales is new pines holiday home park

(this is the first year that New Pines has entered the competition, and what a fantastic result!)


2016 winner of lodge escapes for large parks in devon, somerset & dorset is bath mill lodge retreat

(another first time winner, Bath Mill only opened its doors in 2015!)


2016 winner of lodge escapes for large parks in the south of england is woodside bay lodge retreat

(the home of our quirky tree house accommodation, and another first time winner after opening its doors in 2016!)


best in britain for small parks & lodges 2016 winner is… beach cove coastal retreat!

Beach Cove Coastal Retreat first opened its doors in 2013, and stood out from the crowd straight away with the quirky beach huts, all painted in pastel colours. The park itself is outstanding and has fast gained the reputation of one of the most romantic places in the UK, with countless engagement proposals taking place there. The location is jaw droppingly stunning, sitting on the Cliffside overlooking Hele Bay and just a two minute walk away from the beautiful Devonshire beach and sea. Well Done to the whole team at Beach Cove for this fantastic achievement!


And a huge Well Done to the whole Darwin Escapes team across all of our UK holiday parks for helping us win 8 Diamond Hoseasons 2016 Awards! A massive achievement and very well deserved after everyone working so hard all year round!

Happy Hoseasons 2016 Awards Ladies & Gents!
