DGT - Devon's Got Talent

Forget BGT – there’s an array of talent in Devon in the tourism industry! A few weeks ago the Devon Tourism Awards finalists were announced http://www.devontourismawards.org.uk/page/44/2018-winners–highly-commended.htm and The Folletts are shortlisted in TWO categories – Self Catering Property of the Year and Customer Service Superstar. Barry and I are super excited and will hear whether we’ve won Bronze, Silver or Gold at the awards ceremony on 22 November. We know that we are very lucky to live and work in East Devon and our part of Devon did really well in many of the categories. In fact lots of the places we recommend to our guests are also included in the finalists list – The Donkey Sanctuary, Seaton Wetlands and Stuart Line Cruises to name just a few.

This is the second time this year we’ve been recognised, having been a finalist in the Customer Service category for the Devon and Cornwall Venus awards. For the awards dinner Barry will need to press his DJ and I’ll have to dig out my long red dress again. I purchased this for the Venus awards in the Red Cross shop in Seaton for the grand price of £9.50 so I’m pleased it will have another outing this year. I also had a curly hair blow dry and that cost more than the dress!

We entered the awards as it’s been over three years since we became holiday cottage owners, and a key part of the process is that each entrant receives detailed feedback after the awards. I’m really looking forward to receiving ours as I’m sure there’s areas of improvement and suggestions that we can get to grips with. We’re up against some very strong competition in our category; Bidwell Farm Cottages and the Millbrook Estate – congratulations to them as well. In just five weeks time we’ll know the outcome………
