Gold Award

Top spot for TCB at the Bristol, Bath & Somerset Tourism Awards

Christine & Alan being presented with the Gold Award for Self-catering at The Bristol, Bath & Somerset Awards



We're delighted to announce that our fabulous property The Cottage Beyond was awarded Gold in the self-catering category at the Bristol, Bath & Somerset Awards last night.  TCB was described as "An oasis - with all the mod cons needed" - a fantastic accolade.

"A capacity audience of 288 guests witnessed 66 trophies being presented to tourism businesses at the first ever Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards ceremony held at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House on Wednesday night.  Laura Rawlings from BBC Radio Bristol announced winners from each of the 20 different categories to excited cheers. To get to this stage each entrant had gone through a rigorous three-stage judging process, taking into account websites, reviews, social media, visits by industry ‘mystery visitors’ and finally a judging panel.

The winners were invited on stage to be presented with individually crafted awards made by Will Shakspeare, from Shakspeare Glass in Langport. Somerset based organiser Nell Barrington said “this is the first time we have run these awards in the county and we wanted the winners to receive something really special and unique.  These pieces are just beautiful but being made of glass it was quite a challenge for me to ensure that we managed to present them all without incident!”"

Alan & Christine were thrilled to receive such a beautiful trophy made by Will Shakspeare. Every sphere was unique and engraved with the property's name and award category.

It is the team who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make TCB such a success who deserve all the credit - thank you team TCB.
