Winchcombe Camping and Caravanning Club Site has been announced as a gold star winner in the annual Cotswold Tourism Awards.

The Club Site won the prestigious Cotswold Tourism Caravan and Camping Site Award for 2012.

The Club Site was recognised after a panel of expert judges acknowledged the site’s success and achievements over the last 12 months.

Winchcombe Club Site, which is located in the heart of the Cotswolds near the village of Alderton, is surrounded by beautiful views, interesting towns and historic villages and is the perfect base for exploring the local countryside.

Winchcombe Holiday Site Managers, Ian Thomas and Sue Liggett were delighted with the accolade and said: “To be recognised as a leading campsite is a huge honour and we will endeavour to keep working hard to provide a great service for all those who choose to visit.”

Bob Hill, the Club’s Sites Director, added: “Our Club Sites continue to impress and I’d like to thank and congratulate Ian, Sue and their Holiday Site Assistants for all their hard work. We hope our campers continue to enjoy what is such a beautiful site.”

Chris Dee, Tourism Manager at Gloucestershire’s Local Enterprise Partnership, added: “Cotswold Tourism thrives on the high quality of local businesses and services. These Awards reward our achievers and help us to highlight the best of what’s on offer here.”
