EyeMOUTH Holiday Park has ended the season on a high after being among the winners at an annual holiday parks awards ceremony.

The Berwickshire tourist spot, popular with groups from all over the UK, was awarded the Best in Scotland award in the Family Fun category at the sixth annual Hoseasons gala awards dinner.

The award ceremony, which took place at Shorefield Country Park, Milford-on-Sea, Hampshire, on November 9, showcased the achievements of Hoseasons 470 lodges and holiday parks throughout the UK. The event also served to highlight the growing success of lodge and park holidays in 2011.

Celebrating the Family Fun award win, Park Resorts, owners of Eyemouth Holiday Park, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won the Family Fun award.

“This award recognises the effort and hard work put in by every member of the team, all of whom are responsible for ensuring our customers have a great holiday experience.

“This award proves the hard work has paid off and we aim to continue to deliver great UK holidays in 2012.”

“The Hoseasons Group is the largest self catering holiday company in the UK, so winning one of these awards means Eyemouth is one of the UK’s most popular and successful locations in our portfolio,” said Geoff Cowley, Managing Director of The Hoseasons Group.

“Like many holiday companies the business has built on the strong success of UK holidays in 2011, and we look forward to helping locations continue to develop and grow in 2012.”

The gala dinner and award ceremony were part of an industry event hosted by Hoseasons designed to review the past 12 months in tourism and address to look at the issues and challenges facing UK holidays in 2012.

Attendees also heard from Douglas McWilliams and his views on the economic indicators for 2012 and The Apprentice runner up Ruth Badger.

The awards, which were broken down into region and type of holiday experience, were presented to the lodges and parks who had independently achieved the highest scores in the Hoseasons customer satisfaction surveys.

In total there were 23 winners and 45 runners up from across the UK.
