Last year it won the title of Best UK Family Holiday Company and, over the last four years, the company has gained seven awards wins, as well as a silver and bronze prize.

The company is also testing a “parks of the future” initiative in four locations to create state-of-the-art amenities including accommodation, park facilities and kids’ activity-based entertainment such as the Bear Grylls Survival Academy.
Steve Richards, chief executive, Parkdean Resorts, said: “Our team has worked exceptionally hard to put a smile on the face of so many British families after such a difficult year. These nominations are testament to all the hard work that our teams up and down the country have put in to help create amazing memories for our holidaymakers and owners.”
BTA chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “This year has been very difficult for the travel industry but many people did have a holiday before or after lockdown and its important they have their chance to give an opinion and vote for their favourite travel providers. Travel companies shouldn’t have to miss out on the chance to win an award, it could be just the boost needed to start 2021 on a positive high. Good luck to Parkdean Resorts.”
