Brean’s Holiday Resort Unity is celebrating double award-winning success at the Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards.
The holiday park’s dog-friendly cafe, called Coast, which opened in the spring of this year, picked up the gold award for ‘dog-friendly business of the year’.
Described by the judges as “fun and friendly, they made our dog incredibly welcome”, Coast has a bespoke menu for dogs which includes a three-course meal option.
There’s also beer and prosecco brewed just for dogs, as well as hot and cold food and drinks for dog-owners. Blankets, towels, water bowls and treats are also available!
The park’s Director Alan House told Burnham-On-Sea.com that the cafe compliments the holiday park, which offers dog-friendly holiday homes to hire, as well as dogs being made welcome on their touring and camping fields with dedicated dog walks.
Alan told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “We are delighted with the gold award for Coast. It was created as a result of both feedback from our customers, and also to benefit our local community.”
“With so many dog walkers using the beach and now the new stretch of the England Coast Path increasing footfall to the area, it’s great for dog owners to have somewhere to go whatever the weather where their dogs are welcome too.”
“It’s fantastic to be recognised not just for the service and facilities we provide in Coast, but because we listened, we created and we achieved.”
For the second consecutive year, the Brean holiday park was also awarded the silver award in the Holiday Park of the Year category.
The resort says that it continually invests in all areas of the business year after year, making substantial improvements not only to its accommodation and facilities, but to ensure it is operating in a way to minimise its impact on the environment, maximising its contribution to local wildlife and conservation, and ensuring that it is accessible and inclusive to all.
This year it has evolved further in engaging with the local community by increasing its number of events open to the public, which included a Somerset Day Fayre supporting local businesses and outdoor cinema screenings, as well as its support for local charities such as BARB Search & Rescue, Burnham Coastguards, Burnham-On-Sea RNLI and the Dylan Cecil Memorial Fund.
