Valleyside Escapes South West Tourism Gold AwardValleyside Escapes has been named the best glamping site in the South West of England. Last night we scooped GOLD in the Glamping Business of the year category at the 2023/24 South West Tourism Excellence Awards.

Carrie Thomas, Visitor Information Officer, Tiverton Tourist Information Service said, “Huge congratulations to Valleyside Escapes, they continue to grow and evolve and win awards! The availability of this multi award-winning, unique, luxury glamping site in Mid-Devon is great for tourists and supports our current work to promote all what is great about this area through Visit Mid Devon.”

SW Tourism Excellence AwardWe are extremely proud of this award but there is still more to come! This season we have a new games room, we will also be launching our green charter and are exploring a few different partnership opportunities – one of which is with iconic British brand Out’n’About.

Valleyside Escapes was automatically entered into the regional awards after winning GOLD in the Visit Devon 2023-24 awards in the glamping category last November. Judges then reviewed entries from across 8 counties – Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall before announcing three finalists. This is Valleyside Escapes 9th award since opening over five years ago.

Team Valleyside Escapes with gold awardHelen Wylde-Archibald, Wildanet, CEO who were the headline sponsors said, “Congratulations to all the winners from last night’s awards. With the standard of entries being so high this year, it demonstrates the incredible work that businesses throughout the South West are doing to stand-out and help to position our region as one that is truly world-class. The region has so much to offer as a tourism destination in the UK, if not the World; and the South West Tourism Awards are a fantastic stage on which to showcase and celebrate those incredible businesses that are flying the flag for the region.”
