Cofton Country Holidays, the multi award-winning holiday park near Dawlish, South Devon, has received one of the highest accolades in the world of hot tubs at the annual British and Irish Hot Tub Association (BISHTA) awards, held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
Put forward in the ‘Hot Tubs in a Holiday Setting’ category by Exeter-based H2O Swimming Pools and Hot Tubs, Cofton emerged winners against stiff national competition, walking away with the top gold award.
Dan Johnson, H2O Sales Director and Marketing Manager, received the award on Cofton’s behalf and presented the winning certificate to Cofton’s management team earlier this week.
Commenting on the successful award entry Dan said: “Cofton took delivery of seven hot tubs in 2016, locating them in stand-out locations on their 80 acre estate near Starcross. Its four top of the range Fernworthy holiday homes now have high-end hot tubs along with three four-star cottages that overlook the dramatic Exe Estuary.
“Each hot tub adds to the experience of visitors and are maintained by Cofton’s staff who receive support and training from H2O. Their maintenance team have even signed up to become members of our trade body, BISHTA, which further demonstrates Cofton’s commitment to outstanding customer service and the highest levels of hot tub testing in line with HSE Guidelines. These factors certainly played their part in convincing the judges that Cofton was a worthy winner.”
Mellony Kirby, Director at Cofton Country Holidays, received the award from Dan commenting: “The hot tubs have been hugely popular with our customers helping to increase bookings in both our hot tub holiday homes and cottages. It was a significant investment for us as a business, but we have been delighted with their appeal. Working alongside H2O we have trained our maintenance team on all aspects of looking after the hot tubs, and it is particularly pleasing that this approach has resulted in such a prestigious award.”
Cofton Country Holiday is set in 80 acres of parkland with miles of nature trails and cycle paths. Guests have access to an on-site complex with steam room, sauna, gym, restaurant, pub, fitness studio, soft play area, pool tables, an entertainment zone and heated indoor pool. Outside facilities include a playground, sports wall, woodland adventure area, outdoor pools and five well-stocked coarse fishing lakes.
