St Ives touring park wins big at Cornwall tourism awards

12b36fce-16e7-472a-9618-e6edb0d5ba45

Polmanter Touring Park in St Ives has won Gold for Camping and Caravanning Park of the Year at the Cornwall Tourism Awards.

Owners of the family-run site, Phillip and Becki Osborne, accepted the top accolade virtually, as organisers hosted an online Zoom event on February 25, with pre-delivered packages of food and drink to help the finalists celebrate their success.

Polmanter, which is also a member of the high-quality campsite group, Premier Parks, was commended for its range of five-star facilities and focus on customer service. They were also marked highly for ongoing investment in the site, which has included a shop and reception redevelopment, additions to the outdoor play equipment and refurbishment of its ‘Stable Bar’.

Becki, Co-owner of Polmanter Touring Park, said: “We’re over the moon to have won Gold! It’s a real honour to be recognised amongst some of the leading tourism businesses in Cornwall. As regular campers ourselves, we aim to deliver an outstanding holiday experience. We’re always looking for opportunities to make the site even better, so we’re thrilled to be acknowledged for this.”

“In over 50 years of running the park, we’ve never experienced anything like this past year. It really was a credit to our dedicated team and loyal customers who worked together to ensure that we could still welcome families safely to St Ives, and we look forward to doing so again when we are able to reopen.”

Polmanter will add this accolade to their collection, including Gold awards in both the Cornwall and South West Tourism Awards in 2018/19 and a Tripadvisor 2020 ‘Travellers’ Choice’ award. They will now go on to be considered by the judging panel for the regional South West Tourism Excellence Awards in March.

The touring park offers nearly 300 touring pitches and three self-catering properties. Its facilities include an outdoor heated swimming pool, bar and restaurant as well as indoor and outdoor children’s play areas.
