Scotland caravan park 'in stunning location' crowned best in UK

A holiday park in Scotland has been crowned the best caravan park in the whole of the UK.

Hunters Quay on the Cowal peninsula in Argyll and Bute triumphed over thousands of other holiday sites from around the nation to claim the prize. The award-winning holiday village in Dunoon is part of Cove UK’s Argyll Holidays group.

The award was bestowed by Hoseasons, which is "the leading booking site for holiday parks across the UK". Hunters Quay also won the Best in Britain title in the Customer Choice Food Award.

Managing Director of Cove UK Mark Seaton said: “To be crowned the best caravan park in Britain is a tremendous achievement for Hunters Quay given the quality of competition around the country.

“Hunters Quay really is an outstanding holiday park in every respect and that’s why we see families and people of all ages travel from near and far to stay with us.

“The park is located in a stunning location and offers first-class accommodation and activities. And also confirmed by its Best in Britain food award, the team cater for the very best in food and drink as well."

Elsewhere, Hunters Quay's Argyll Holidays sister park, Drimsynie Estate Holiday Village at Lochgoilhead, also took home a top prize. It won a Diamond Award for Scotland in the ‘Relax & Explore: Large Park’ category.

Commenting on both of the parks' wins, Mr Seaton continued: “We’re also delighted that Drimsynie Holiday Park won a Diamond Award in the large park category, underlining the quality that exists across the Argyll Holidays portfolio.

“When Cove UK took ownership in February, we promised to invest and drive forward the Argyll Holidays brand which was already a success. The existing team at Argyll have been exceptional and utilising Cove’s expertise, we’ve been able to build many parts of the business including our product offering, marketing, training and career development.

“This is also a fantastic boost for Dunoon and for the region, we are certain that even more holidaymakers will want to come and stay with us in the months and years ahead.”
