Enjoy England Gold
We are delighted that, once again, we have been awarded the highest accolade possible in self-catering. This year, for the first time, Visit England and Quality in Tourism, the tourist industry's quality arm, has created Gold status for self catering properties reaching particularly high standards. Only 7% of inspected properties in the UK have reached this level. This award, achieved for all 10 of our cottages, puts us right at the top of British self-catering, a place we're determined to stay!
Green Tourism Gold
The first 5 star self-catering property in Devon to be awarded the Green Tourism Award has been as a consequence of a major review of energy use, waste management and care for the local environment. A new environmental policy has increased awareness of the owners, staff and guests to the sensitivity of this area of outstanding natural beauty. It has always been a key objective for the farm to be a fully sustainable business.
Visit Devon Tourism Awards 2011 Gold
Compton Pool Farm was awarded Gold as the best self catering business in Devon. We are very proud to add this award to our trophy cabinet and were delighted to be featured alongside the other gold winners, including the excellent Pennywell Farm and Gidleigh Park hotel. The judges singled us out as providing excellent customer service and it is in this area we will continue to strive to provide a memorable holiday, not just a cottage.
Vist England Gold Award for best self-catering in England
What the customers having been saying for years is finally official – the family-run holiday cottage business has been crowned the best self-catering holiday provider in England. The Gold Award is the highest Award for Excellence in Tourism in England which VisitEngland can bestow. Compton Pool Farm was presented with their Gold Award at a glittering Awards Ceremony which was held on 22 May 2012 at Athena, an art deco gem located in the heart of Leicester’s cultural quarter.
