It's official - Peterchurch holiday park is a five-star destination
12:44pm Monday 27th January 2014 in News
A FAMILY run holiday park in South Herefordshire has scooped a major new tourism award making them one of the very best in Britain.
It is like a dream come true for owners Wayne and Sarah Jones, who are part of the Bestparks family group across Herefordshire and on the Welsh and Shropshire borders. In their 22 years of developing the Golden Valley site it was always their aim to produce a 5 star quality experience.
The five star grading looks for that little bit extra over and above what the customer would normally expect, focusing on park design and maintenance as well as staff efficiency.
“I have always joked with the team that we want to be the first 6 star park” says Wayne “It's fantastic that we've now got a five star plus, and the whole team are proud to be a part of it. Without their dedication and commitment it wouldn't have been possible!”
This is the first year that Visit England has awarded a gold plus status for parks and the Poston Mill team are delighted that they have qualified. It was a much harder grading system in 2013 ” says Sarah, “and the bench mark to get to 5 star standard is on another level compared with when we first set started out in the industry over two decades ago.”
