Welcome to Classic Cottages

Why Us

We're choosy

We’ve spent 40 years perfecting our standard and learnt a lot along the way, so we’re confident in our ability to find you the right holiday cottage. Our team of Property Managers only take on properties that meet our exacting standards - yes our business is marketing holiday cottages, but people are the foundation of everything we do.

We make that extra effort – we’re particularly choosy when it comes to finding cottages and their owners, and we follow that up with regular inspections – we keep checking to make sure everything is above and beyond your expectations.

We inspect

Underlying all of this, the real secret of our success is attention to detail.

  • We worry that crockery and cutlery all match and we check every property for the 124 items on our Minimum Inventory every year – that makes 72,000 items of cutlery and crockery alone counted and checked each year!

  • We insist that every property provides towels as well as bed linen.

  • Our descriptions tell you everything you need to know to make sure the property you choose is the right one for you.

It’s our mission to create great holidays


We started perfecting the art of handpicking holiday homes back in 1977 and, a quarter of a million holidays later, we must be doing something right as nearly half of our happy customers keep on coming back for more.


This is not just a holiday; it’s a time-out, a getaway, a much needed respite, so sit back and relax while we unearth your new favourite places to stay. Don’t worry, we’ve already been to count the teaspoons and fluff the pillows, making sure each and every one is somewhere we’d love to stay ourselves.
