A leading horticultural nursery has supplied plants to a holiday resort which has been awarded as the ‘Best Large Park in Britain 2017’.
Johnsons of Whixley, a family-run plant nursery based in North Yorkshire, supplied 346 trees and 15,000 hedge, shrub and herbaceous plants to Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat in the Lake District, which has been named as the Best Large Park in Britain 2017 at the Hoseasons Best in Britain awards.
The prestigious awards recognise holiday parks and resorts from across the UK for their dedication to tourism and providing exceptional experiences.
