Beverley Holidays took to the waves at the weekend to champion the award-winning English Riviera on BBC Radio 2 as part of a ‘Summer Seaside Survey’ with star hosts Alan Carr and Melanie Sykes.  

Second generation owner Alan Jeavons from Beverley Holidays was tasked with the challenge of telling 4.2 million listeners why the English Riviera in sunny South Devon is the best place to holiday in Britain.

Alan flew the flag for Torbay by answering a series of quick-fire questions from Radio 2 hosts Alan and Mel covering everything from the tastiest local cuisine to the English Riviera’s top local attractions.

During the broadcast, it was also revealed that star host Alan Carr has himself enjoyed happy times at Beverley Holidays having stayed at the family run park in a holiday caravan in the 1980s.

Alan Jeavons from Beverley Holidays said “We were thrilled to receive an invite from radio producers inviting us to take part in the show and tell the nation why the English Riviera, with its abundance of beaches, exotic palm trees and top seaside attractions, truly is the best place to holiday in Britain. 

We are also very proud to have Alan Carr among the many guests we have welcomed to Beverley Holidays over the years, and invited both him and Mel for a stay in one of our hot tub caravans when we celebrate our 60th anniversary next March. ”

Set in the heart of the English Riviera, Beverley Holidays is a family run group of three holiday parks offering high-quality accommodation including hot tub caravans and luxury lodges, plus camping and touring with stunning sea views.

Next year sees Beverley Holidays celebrate its 60th season of welcoming guests to the sunny English Riviera shores, with staff and guests alike set to mark the milestone in style on 24 March 2018.

Further details on the 60th anniversary celebrations are set to be announced soon and those who missed Beverley’s radio debut have a listen above to discover what happened when Alan met Alan.
