A Devon campsite has been named the best in the UK at a prestigious awards ceremony.

The multi-award-winning Cofton Holidays, a member of the Premier Parks network of the 100 best sites in the UK, won Best Caravan/Campsite at the iTravel Staycation Awards 2020/21.

Cofton is no stranger to the awards, having been shortlisted twice at the 2019 awards; the last time they were held. 

This year, the Premier Park did it again, being shortlisted in the dog-friendly accommodation category as well as best campsite, in which it triumphed for its camping and caravanning facilities.

The panel of 23 judges praised Cofton for its strong leadership in the category, its extensive offering for campers and motorhomes, impressive facilities and its lockdown rewilding project.  

Helen Scott, Director at Cofton Holidays, said, “2020 was a torrid time for the travel and tourism sector, but like so many we focused on the future. Throughout lockdown we concentrated all our efforts on making improvements to the park, particularly on the camping side of the business, so that when guests returned, they could look forward to outstanding facilities.

"That’s why we invested over £200k to bring 48 new super pitches on board for RVs and campervans. We also enhanced our beautiful landscape, rewilding large swathes of the park, introducing new shrubbery, creating wildlife corridors and enhancing biodiversity across the site for insects, birds, bats, butterflies, bees and small mammals."

Facilities include a heated indoor pool with a splash pad area and hydrotherapy loungers, a gym, restaurant, pub, steam room, sauna, fitness studio, soft play area, playground, sports wall, outdoor pools and much more.
