Our Awards

We are proud to have been awarded...

Enjoy England Gold

We are delighted that, once again, we have been awarded the highest accolade possible in self-catering. This year, for the first time, Visit England and Quality in Tourism, the tourist industry's quality arm, has created Gold status for self catering properties reaching particularly high standards. Only 7% of inspected properties in the UK have reached this level. This award, achieved for all 11 of our cottages, puts us right at the top of British self-catering, a place we're determined to stay!

Green Tourism Gold

The first 5 star self-catering property in Devon to be awarded the Green Tourism Award has been as a consequence of a major review of energy use, waste management and care for the local environment. A new environmental policy has increased awareness of the owners, staff and guests to the sensitivity of this area of outstanding natural beauty. It has always been a key objective for the farm to be a fully sustainable business.

Visit Devon Tourism Awards 2013 Gold

A short while ago in November, Compton Pool Farm won Gold in the Sustainable Tourism Award category. We are extremely proud to have won this award, it is at the forefront of our trophy cabinet which now totals 8 regional and 3 national awards! Reaching Carbon-neutrality took us year of immense investment and months of backbreaking work in the worst possible weather. The installation of the Bio-mass boiler and the Solar Panels are a fantastic addition to Compton Pool’s green ethos.
