The website says:
The British Travel Awards is the largest and most influential poll of consumer opinion on the performance of enterprises operating in the leisure travel and visitor attractions sector.
What makes the British Travel Awards such a valuable source of reference for consumers when planning their holidays is the way we garner votes.
The votes are not cast by simple clicks on a Facebook “like”, Twitter “favourite” or other social media instant response button – but by individuals who have taken the time to register their details and make considered judgements on the companies they believe deserve recognition.
The British Travel Awards Winner Logo is the consumer recognised “Symbol of Excellence”.
Cornwall achieved a Silver award for best region, beaten by Gold-winner Northumberland (which is also truly beautiful and less crowded in summer) but overtaking Derbyshire and the Peak District which achieved Bronze.
