David Eddins and George Combe collected the award at a gala dinner for over 200 guests at the Winter Gardens in Weston Super Mare, surrounded by many other wonderful tourism businesses from across Bristol, Bath, Somerset and Exmoor.

Mendip Basecamp is our family adventure campsite based at Mendip Activity Centre. This award recognises the hard work of Mendip's team throughout 2022 to provide quality outdoor adventure and camping. We can't wait for next season when we'll be back- better than ever!

Kathryn Davis, Director of Tourism at Visit West, said “On behalf of all the team at Visit West, huge congratulations to all the winners. The visitor economy is hugely valuable to the region and so it is essential that we have a thriving quality and sustainable business community, and our winners clearly demonstrate the innovation, success and passion that sets their businesses apart.”

Awards Director, Nell Barrington commented “it was just great to see these tourism and hospitality businesses get rewarded for their hard work, enthusiasm and excellence. A massive well done to them all. I also wanted to say these awards would not be possible without our fantastic sponsors, supporters and team of volunteer judges so a big thank you must go to them”.

Thank you to the sponsors of the award, Tozers. Thank you to Visit West, Visit Somerset, Quality in Tourism and South West Tourism Awards. Congratulations to the other award winners.
