The report concluded that Ribby Hall Village “Continues to develop with significant upgrades and additions planned for the coming year; the significant financial investment made helps to keep the holiday village looking smart, modern and in-line with guest expectations.”

The high level accreditation is largely due to the efforts of the team at Ribby Hall Village and the pride taken in the product. Managing Director Mark Partington praises the level of reinvestment and all-importantly the employees at Ribby Hall Village:

“At Ribby, we are constantly reinvesting profits back into the business with the aim of improving the holiday experience year on year. Last year a significant investment was made in refurbishing our accommodation, the health club and the opening of two new eateries. For 2016 we are really excited about our new addition ‘Wild Discovery’, an interactive animal experience and a new kids club which is also being launched later this year for our holiday guests.

“I do believe however Ribby Hall Village’s greatest achievement is that of the team, and the pride that all employees take in the development and maintenance of our five-star holiday Village. From a service perspective we aim to please and this has been clearly reflected in the Visit England report where service was rated at 100%.”
