A family run holiday park in Sidmouth has started 2018 with more award success after winning gold in the South West Tourism Awards.

Oakdown Holiday Park took home the prestigious award for Best Holiday Park in the South West at a ceremony in Torquay last week.

The Franks family, who started the business in the 1970s, say that listening to their customers is what enables them to provide such high standards.

Owner Alastair Franks said: “Winning the Visit Devon award last year was just brilliant for us, but now to be awarded the gold at a regional level, really is the icing on the cake.

The team works incredibly hard to provide our visitors with outstanding facilities and customer service, but to be recognised for this by experts in the industry, gives our visitors, both returning and new, the extra confidence in us.”

The team are busy refurbishing ahead of the start of its new season.
