The family owners of a Redruth holiday park are celebrating after being named as the best small caravan and motorhome site in the United Kingdom, www.thisisthewestcountry.co.uk reported

Tehidy Holiday Park in Illogan beat hundreds of other parks throughout the country to take the title after coming top in a national poll of magazine readers.

Business owners Richard and Julia Barnes, whose park is just two miles from the beautiful surfing beach of Portreath, were awarded the accolade by top-selling Practical Motorhome.

Awards given by the publication – which are based on the votes of readers – are regarded as the Oscars of the holiday caravan parks industry.

“I hope the publicity will also benefit other tourism businesses in the area by drawing attention to what a great place this part of Cornwall is to come on holiday.”
