A language school, a holiday park and a caravan park are celebrating reaching the finals of the Devon Tourism Awards.

Mountlands Language School has been nominated for International Visitor Experience of the Year, Ladram Bay Holiday Park is up for Holiday Park and Village of the Year, and Crealy Meadows Caravan and Camping Park is up for Camping and Caravanning Park of the Year.

Mountlands’ managing director, Ella Tyler, said: “We are so proud to be a part of these awards.

“Our local host families, suppliers and staff all play a big part in the excellent experiences we deliver and to be recognised by such a large awards organisation, which celebrates Devon tourism businesses, really puts our wonderful seaside location on the map as a place to visit.”

Ladram Bay director Zoe House said: “We feel genuinely humbled that Ladram Bay was nominated in these awards and has now reached the competition finals.

“We’re now greatly looking forward to the main awards ceremony.

“Whatever the outcome, we would like to thank all those who helped us get this far.”

The winners are announced on November 10.

Successful businesses will also be fast-tracked into the South West Tourism Excellence Awards in February 2017.
