Oversteps House at South Sands in Salcombe has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Devon Tourism Awards, in the category Self Catering Property of the Year. The winner of the award will be announced at a black-tie ceremony at The Guildhall in Plymouth on 23rd November 2017, with Oversteps House in the running for a top accolade.

Exclusively available through locally based Coast & Country Cottages, Oversteps House is a luxury holiday property sleeping up to 16 people, and is situated in an enviable location overlooking South Sands beach in Salcombe. Beautifully renovated and stylishly presented, this is a very desirable holiday property for large family gatherings or groups of friends, looking for the ideal venue for celebrating a special birthday or anniversary. With direct access to the beach below and a private beach house, Hobbit House, this is a very special location for a stunning seaside break.

This year’s awards saw records broken, with around 205 entries in the Devon awards and 645 across the South West.  From these, the panel selected 76 finalists based on evidence and reports from the judges, who this year carried out a record 120 visits to Devon businesses.

Karen Jones, Director of Coast & Country Cottages said ‘We are absolutely delighted that Oversteps House has been selected as a finalist in these awards. This is truly an exceptional property, steeped in history and finished to the highest possible standards. It is a worthy finalist and we are very pleased that it has reached this stage in the judging, fighting off tough competition. We are looking forward to the results on 23rd November’.

Coast & Country Cottages is also a finalist in the prestigious 2017 British Travel Awards in the category ‘Best UK Self Catering Holiday Booking Company Small’ for the fourth consecutive year! Consumer voting has now closed and successful companies will be announced at the British Travel Awards Gala Dinner, being held in London on 29th November 2017.
