Bluestone Scoops British Travel Award

Pembrokeshire’s Bluestone National Park Resort has been awarded Best UK Family Holiday Company (Small) at the 2019 British Travel Awards. 

The results of the Awards were announced last night to an audience of 900 senior travel executives and representatives from consumer and trade media. The presentation ceremony - held in London - revealed the results of the largest ever poll of public opinion on the best performing enterprises in leisure travel and tourism.

The British Travel Awards are considered the benchmark for excellence when it comes to finding out who really is the best in the travel industry. The winners were determined solely by the number of consumer votes cast between 1st July and 30th September 2019, with the counts verified by professional business consultants Deloitte. 

Yvonne Buckingham, Head of Sales and Marketing, and Glenn Hewer, Sales, and Marketing Manager attended the evening to collect the award on behalf of Bluestone. Speaking following the announcement, Bluestone CEO William McNamara said: “We feel honoured to have been Awarded Best UK Family Holiday Company (Small). 

This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our 700 staff and local partners who go above and beyond as we strive to be the most loved and unique family holiday destination. We know our guests are attracted to Pembrokeshire’s spectacular countryside and beautiful beaches, and we’re proud to be their hosts as they explore all that our county and West of Wales have to offer.” 

British Travel Awards’ Chief Executive, Lorraine Barnes Burton added: “Bluestone Wales is to be congratulated on winning Best UK Family Holiday Company (Small). The competition was particularly strong this year but ultimately it is the travelling public who decide the winners by voting for the travel companies they consider the best in the business. The British Travel Awards is the largest consumer awards programme in the UK and to win is truly an accolade.”
