Devon Yurt wins the Silver Award at The Visit Devon Tourism Award
For the third consecutive year, Devon Yurt has won a major tourism award. Shortlisted earlier this year, Devon Yurt were recently announced as the Silver Award winners in the Visit Devon Tourism Awards for the glamping business of the year. Devon is one of, if not the, major holiday destination counties of the UK, so to hold such an award amidst fierce competition from other prestigious glamping sites in Devon is a joy to behold. One area that judges were particularly interested in this year were the way the glamping businesses adapted to the covid pandemic and how they kept their guests safe and happy during such difficult times. Devon yurt installed a hot outdoor shower for Great Links yurt so that each yurt had their own private showering facilities. There were separate tables set up in the big barn with produce and fire and bbq supplies, for each yurt, and separate hand washing stands and sanitising stations. This season, Devon Yurt have also added a remote check in app with all the information guests will need to find their way around the farm, check in and check out procedures as well as lots of information about what to do in the area.
Yesterday Devon Yurt were informed that they have now also been selected as finalists in the South West Tourism excellence awards alongside three other top South West Glamping businesses. Results are due to be announced in April 2021. This is very exciting indeed !
