Coast & Country Cottages has been announced as one of the shortlisted finalists for a 2014 British Travel Award – for Best UK Holiday Cottage/Self Catering Booking Company – in the prestigious 2014 British Travel Awards. The winners will be announced at the BTA Gala Awards Dinner, being held at Battersea Evolution in London on 26 November 2014.
Since acquiring the company in 2001, Andrew and Karen Jones have successfully grown the business from just 3 people to a team of around 30 permanent staff. Based in picturesque Salcombe and historic Dartmouth, Coast & Country Cottages now manages over 430 self-catering holiday cottages exclusively in Salcombe, Dartmouth and the surrounding coast and countryside.
Karen Jones, Director, says “We are delighted to have been named as a finalist in the coveted British Travel Awards for the second year running! As a small family run business, we know it is taking care of the little things that make the difference to our customers and owners. From cleaning, laundry and gardening services, to 24-hour emergency assistance, we try to go that extra mile – we are pleased that our many satisfied customers have recognised this and chosen to vote for us in these prestigious awards”.
British Travel Awards’ chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “The British Travel Awards are the only travel industry accolades voted for exclusively by the travelling public. During the voting period, which ended on 30 September, more than one million consumer votes were cast making the BTAs the largest Award programme in the UK. The Awards serve to recognise all that is great about UK travel companies and the British Travel Awards symbol is recognised as the ‘Benchmark of Excellence’. To win a British Travel Award is truly an accolade and Coast & Country Cottages is to be congratulated on getting through to the finals.”
