My parents always used Classic Cottages for holidays in my childhood, and now I use them for my family holidays. The simple reason it the quality of the properties for the price, the customer service and their choice of properties. Little Oak Barn is a perfect addition to their range, in the heart of the moor it is perfect for exploring or for snuggling up in to recharge ones batteries.
