Eco cottages

Our Classic Green scheme identifies holiday cottages where the Owners have taken extra steps to be kinder to the environment. 

Most of us want to be greener in our everyday lives. And it's no different when we go on holiday. The steps taken by our cottage owners range from buying local produce for the welcome tray to subscribing to green energy tariffs and installing efficient heating systems. We've got 48 eco friendly cottages in The West Country to choose from.

We have 48 Eco cottages
