Kielder Waterside was crowned Best Large Relax and Explore destination in the North of England at Hoseasons’ 11th annual Gala Awards evening.

The event, held at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, in Birmingham, showcased the very best of the self-catering specialist’s lodge and holiday parks across the UK.

David Hall, Head of Leisure at Kielder Waterside, said: “It’s always nice to win an industry award, especially when we work so hard to make sure our customers have a great holiday experience.”

The Hoseasons Diamond Awards are broken down into eight UK regions and presented to Hoseasons locations that have achieved the highest scores in independent customer satisfaction surveys.

“The fact that Kielder Waterside has won this award demonstrates that they really have gone above and beyond when it comes to looking after their customers.” said Simon Altham, managing director of Hoseasons, who presented the award.

“As one of Britain’s most popular holiday locations, the standards set by this park are exactly what we have in mind when we talk about offering our customers a better place to stay, and we wish them all the best for another successful year in 2017.”

Hoseasons recently announced it had enjoyed its sixth record summer in a row with bookings up 14% across its entire UK portfolio.
