We are absolutely thrilled to have achieved Gold in the Tourism Innovation Award and Bronze in the Visitor Attraction of the Year at the Devon Tourism Awards 2020 in what has been an unprecedented and difficult year for everyone.
The winners were announced on Thursday 11th March in an online ceremony and members of our team attended via their computer screens to hear the welcome good news.
The Tourism Innovation Award honours those that have introduced innovative ideas and developments to improve their business, making them stand out in their field. We are extremely proud to have won the Gold Award and to be in this category along with near neighbours The Big Sheep who took home Silver. For both to receive an award of this nature is a fantastic recognition of the amazing, forward-thinking attractions that can be found in North Devon.
The Visitor Attraction of the Year award is given to those that provide wonderful and memorable experiences for their visitors and can show they have achieved excellence throughout the business. We previously won in the Small Attraction of the Year category in the 2017 and 2018 awards respectively.
Ian Wallace, Quince Honey Farm Partner said, ‘We are delighted to have won these two prestigious awards. It not only shows how much we have grown over the past two years following our relocation in 2019, but that we have maintained our high standards and demonstrates our ambitions for the future.’
Ian continues, ‘There is no denying that 2020 has been a very challenging year for tourism businesses, so to be recognised for our hard work is a great honour. Congratulations to all our fellow leisure and tourism businesses and thank you to the Devon Tourism Awards for giving us this chance to shine in what has been a difficult year. We look forward to welcoming our visitors back in the not too distant future.’
