Blooming Park Cliffe takes award

49218547-04ac-4130-afa8-07e709cd4721
Green-fingered staff at Park Cliffe in Windermere, Cumbria, have helped the family-run business clinch a top award in the 2011 Cumbria in Bloom awards.

The park was named this autumn as the overall winner of the self-catering and visitor attraction category of the annual contest.

Park Cliffe, said the judges, had created a colourful, creative and superbly designed floral setting which is bound to enhance the pleasure of holidaymakers.

The park, located on the eastern shores of Windermere, has luxury holiday homes to hire and buy and also provides pitches for tents, touring caravans and motorhomes.

According to Susan Dickson, who owns the 25-acre park with her husband Derek, many guests make special visits to enjoy the annual kaleidoscope of colours.

"We are very lucky to have staff here who have worked for many years at Park Cliffe, and who take a real pride in tending our extensive flower beds and tubs," said Susan.
 
"They show great imagination in their choice of blooms and the way they are displayed, and have even made use of guests' abandoned barbecues for planters!"
 
Earlier this year, Park Cliffe was handed another big bouquet when it took the Holiday Park of the Year accolade in the 2011 Cumbria Tourism Awards.

Having beaten off competition from over 100 other Lakeland holiday parks, Park Cliffe will now go on to represent Cumbria in the national "Enjoy England Awards" early next year.
