Following its Silver award win at the 2017 Devon Tourism Awards, Oversteps House at South Sands in Salcombe has been selected as a finalist in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2017/2018, in the category ‘Self Catering Property of the Year’.

The winner of the award will be announced at a black-tie ceremony at The Riviera Centre in Torquay on 1st February 2018, which is expected to be attended by around 400 industry professionals.

Oversteps House is available exclusively through locally based company Coast & Country Cottages, and is in the running for a top award. This luxury holiday property sleeps 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.

Robin Barker from Services for Tourism said “This year saw a record of 645 entries to consider, and our team of 40+ judges undertook a record 416 visits to entrants.  All reports were then considered by the independent South West awards panel. To have made it amongst the Finalists is a huge achievement, especially in England’s top tourism region”.

Karen Jones, Director of Coast & Country Cottages said “We were thrilled that Oversteps House won Silver at the Devon Tourism Awards in November, and are truly delighted that the property has made it to the next stage of judging, being nominated as a finalist in the Self Catering Property of the Year category in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards. We are very much looking forward to the awards ceremony in February”.
