Previous experience of the Awards!

'What an amazing night at the Welcome to Yorkshire White Rose Awards. We were one of 4 Caravan and Camping Parks in the final from the whole of the Yorkshire Region.... AND were runners up!! The whole evening was so exciting. I personally have never been to anything quite like it before... my feet were agony in high heels... wellies are much more my style! It was so nice to be recognised for the experience we provide at Studfold. Thank you to Welcome to Yorkshire and all our visitors that

have written great reviews over the years'.  Anne, Ian and Mum – Freda
