Bellamy Gold Award
"Wildlife wonderlands, and the chance of an amazing holiday experience: these are my paradise parks!"
When David Bellamy began examining the conservation work being carried out by holiday parks almost ten years ago, he made some very exciting discoveries. It wasn't just human guests which were enjoying the natural surroundings: birds, animals and plant life were also flourishing as a result of the good environmental practices being put to work.
Professor Bellamy's study prompted him to initiate an annual award scheme to highlight the many remarkable achievements of these parks - and to encourage others to follow suit.
David Bellamy Conservation Awards are made each year to parks which can demonstrate policies showing active concern for the environment. Assisted by local nature groups and holidaymakers themselves, David Bellamy looks at virtually every aspect of park management - from the protection of plant and animal habitats to the efficient use of energy and recycling. Helping visitors to understand conservation is also considered an important qualifying feature. Three levels of excellence can be achieved: Gold, Silver and Bronze.
It is great to receive awards, but here at Mother Ivey's Bay Holiday Park, we are immensely proud of our David Bellamy Gold Award.

VisitBritain Rose Award
The Rose Award highlights and promotes selected high quality holiday parks that also provide a good proportion of first class caravan holiday homes for hire. This award cannot be attained unless the establishment is already part of the accommodation scheme and attains a Four or Five Star rating.
Holiday parks cannot apply for the Rose Award: the assessor will decide whether a park is eligible for consideration when conducting the routine quality assessment. If the park is eligible, the assessor will carry on to check whether the holiday caravans available for hire meet the strict Rose Award criteria.
Those parks that are offered and accept the Rose Award will be charged a fee to cover the cost of the extended assessment and the provision of the Rose Awards plaques and stickers.
Rose Awards are granted annually and the use of the Rose Award symbol is valid only for the year for which it was awarded. The award can only be displayed for longer than one year where the year in which the award was won is clearly displayed.
The granting of a Rose Award is entirely at the discretion of VisitBritain.
Here at Mother Ivey's Bay Holiday Park, we are particularly proud of our Rose Award.
