I am writing to you as we are hoping to get the whole of Devon behind our #LoveDevon campaign in order to crown the county as the Best UK Holiday County and Woolacombe as the Best UK Coastal Resort in this year’s British Travel Awards.
We are proud to representing Devon for the third consecutive year and having won bronze for the past two years, we believe we can achieve the top award with the support of the entire county. This year we are up against other top UK holiday destinations including six-time winners Cornwall, Pembrokeshire, and Northumberland.
Each year, Devon welcomes in excess of 30 million day visitors and holiday-makers with tourism in the county accounting for around £2 billion of the UK economy. With this in mind, if Devon wins the award it will benefit the whole community and businesses connected with the tourism sector throughout the county.
Furthermore, we all know that Devon has countless reasons to be able to rightfully claim the title such as;
· Being the only UK county with two National Parks
· It’s home to nine beautiful Blue Flag Beaches
· It is the only UK county to be able to boast two distinct coastlines
· Woolacombe has been voted Britain’s Best Beach for 2015
· Exeter is one of the host cities of the 2015 Rugby World Cup
Remember to use the #LoveDevon hashtag so that we can keep track, we have already seen a great response so far, but with voting open until the 30th September, we need to keep the momentum moving.
