Devon Tourism Awards

Devon Tourism Awards 2018

dog-friendly category finalists

We're very proud to be sponsoring the dog-friendly category again at this years' Devon Tourism awards, and additionally at this years' South West Tourism Awards. As dog lovers ourselves, we're always excited to celebrate businesses who go the extra mile to make our four-legged friends extra welcome.

The finalists for the Devon dog-friendly category were recently announced, and we're very much looking forward to presenting each of the finalists with their well-earned award at the awards ceremony on 22nd November 2018 at Highbullen Manor, just a stones-throw from our factory, in the heart of Devon.
