Tony Potter, Chief Executive of Calvert Trust Exmoor; “This is fantastic news that rewards all the hard work that the Calvert Trust Exmoor team consistently put in;  we are so pleased to be recognised for delivering an excellent experience for anyone and everyone,  of any ability or age.

Double Gold Winner of Winners

 

Regarding the Winner of Winners award The Judges said:

“There are no criteria for this award. At the end of the judging panel meeting its members are asked to identify any entrant which, in their view, has shone out as an exemplar in its field. On this occasion the debate was short. This year’s Winner of Winners was visited independently by two mystery visitors. Both of them came away declared themselves “inspired” by a business that is doing things that others regard as impossible, or simply hadn’t thought of.  It is a genuine exemplar to all tourism businesses on how to widen their audience, be accessible, and deliver excellence.”
