Oversteps House at South Sands in Salcombe has won Silver in the category ‘Self Catering Property of the Year’ at the 2017 Devon Tourism Awards. The property, which is available exclusively through locally based company Coast & Country Cottages, was announced as the winner of a Silver award during a black-tie ceremony at The Guildhall in Plymouth, on 23rd November 2017.

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, the three-storey accommodation offers the ideal space for large gatherings of friends or family. It also has direct access to the beach below and a private beach house, Hobbit House, making it a very special location for a stunning seaside break!

Karen Jones, Director of Coast & Country Cottages said ‘We are absolutely delighted that Oversteps House has had such success at the Devon Tourism Awards, winning Silver in the Self Catering Property of the Year category. This is truly an exceptional property, steeped in history and finished to the highest possible standards. It is a worthy finalist, fighting off tough competition!’

Clare Levy, Marketing and Sales Manager, continues ‘The standard of accommodation Oversteps House offers is exceptional. A large number of people work tirelessly to ensure the smooth running of the property, from the owners and long-standing caretaker Charlie Tildesley, to the whole team at Coast & Country Cottages. It is wonderful that everyone’s hard work and commitment has been recognised by the judges.’

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.
