Eco Cottages

A family-run company, we know it's good to be green. And why should it be any different on holiday? As well as auditing our own offices, as part of our Classic Green Scheme we have identified 45 self-catering cottages which have taken extra steps to be kinder to the environment. Look forward to a luxury eco-friendly holiday and find your favourite cottage today. 

At Classic Cottages, the love we have for our environment is founded on a deep awe and respect. With so many of us reaping the benefits of the beautiful landscapes that surround us, we believe it's important to put as much back in as we receive. That's why we've established the Classic Green Scheme, to help protect, preserve and raise awareness of sustainability both within our industry and on a greater platform. Amongst our 45 eco holiday cottages, you will find a range of beautiful properties in equally beautiful locations. From buying local produce for the welcome tray to subscribing to green energy tariffs and installing efficient heating systems, our eco owners go the extra mile to provide luxury accommodation and look after our environment. 

We have 45 eco cottages
