A HOPTON Heath-based holiday lodge park has been presented with a top regional tourism award by UK holiday firm Hoseasons.

Ashlea Pools Lodges, just over the Shropshire border, near Knighton, was crowned Best Lodge Escape destination in the Heart of England at Hoseasons’ 14th annual Gala Awards evening – a celebration of the self-catering company’s lodge, holiday park and boatyard locations across the UK that have achieved the highest scores in independent customer satisfaction surveys.

Commenting after the award was presented at the Hilton Brighton Metropole, Brighton, East Sussex Leigh Burdon, managing director at Ashlea Pools Lodges, said: “This is amazing. We’re so happy to be recognised by holidaymakers and to have received an award based on the strength of customer satisfaction scores.

“Our team is always appreciative of the support from our guests. We work hard to provide a great holiday experience, whilst always looking to improve. Especially at a time when staycations are becoming more popular.”

Ashlea Pools Lodges is part of Hoseasons’ Evermore Lodge Collection – 27 luxury lodge locations from the countryside to the coast designed with families in mind, for memorable days out and relaxing nights in.

Speaking after presenting the award, Simon Altham, chief portfolio officer at Awaze UK, Hoseasons’ parent company, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to award the team at Ashlea Pools Lodges.

“We all know the importance that positive reviews can have on bookings and it’s clear from the feedback they’ve been receiving that they’re doing a fantastic job of looking after our customers. They deserve all the plaudits that come their way and I wish them every success for many more years to come.”
