Calvert Trust Exmoor was awarded silver at the national VisitEngland ceremony held last night (Tuesday) in Blackpool. The centre near Blackmoor Gate took the award in the Access for All category. It provides the opportunity for people with disabilities to take part in a range of activities such as climbing, sailing and horse riding. It also works closely with families to offer important respite care breaks. Chief executive Tony Potter said: We are incredibly proud to be the only medal winner in North Devon. We continually strive to deliver excellence to all of our guests its very gratifying to be recognised at a national level for our excellence in accessibility and inclusivity. The South West took 26 of the 80 awards announced on the night. Highbullen Hotel Golf & Country Club at Umberleigh was highly commended in the Business Tourism category. Resort director, Ronnie Orr said: It was a huge achievement to have even been shortlisted into the final five in the country; so to achieve this final accolade really has put the cherry on the cake; following on from our gold awards in this category in both the Devon and South West Tourism awards earlier in the year. Kentisbury Grange was also highly commended in the Small Hotel of the Year section.
