DEVON'S Crealy is reporting a great start to the year and the attraction is predicting a good year for the South West tourism industry.
General manager Josh Haywood said introducing new activities for youngsters during the school break was important for its success.
He said: "I think the dry weather really helped attractions make the most of the start to the season, and launching a brand new activity called Explorers Week, specifically for February Half Term, certainly helped Crealy attract a lot of attention.
"It was an extremely popular family activity and was really well received by those visiting us for the first time, as well as those returning to Crealy for the first time this year."
The attraction was recently voted overall winner and best family attraction by Primary Times readers and won the Star Awards for the second year.
