    So pleased for Andy and Tanya of Coastal Valley Camping, a well deserved win for a little hidden gem of a campsite. Huge Congratulations from Jo Olivey

  • Jackie Nuttall June 20, 2017

    Well done to coastal valley camp and crafts. A well deserved award. We stayed on your lovely site 2 years ago, and you have worked very hard to make it a site worth remembering. Keep up the good work.
    Jackie, Steve, Kerry, Paul Ava and Emilie (You might remember us?)

    Are the Awards focused around the Newquay area? Rather bizarre most winners were in Newquay.

      Hi Isobel, not at all. The finalists were spread across the county but you’re right, lots of the winners (10/27) ended up being from the Newquay area. S x

    Brilliant first place for coastal valley camp and crafts. Andy & Tanya have done an amazing job. Love visiting the site 👍🍻

    • Venetia June 20, 2017

      I agree with you Joe coastal Valley is a very special site where nothing is too much trouble for Tanya and Andy. They deserve the winners first prize they work so hard even in the winter to keep improving the site for their campers. Well done coastal valley we are with you all the way. Vicky

    Can’t believe Hunter and Walsh didn’t pick up best Hair Salon. Well done to the winners as they must have been something truly special to get one over Viv Walsh and Nadine Hunter’s spectacular Penzance salon
