Specialist self catering letting agency, Classic Cottages, has just announced that its hugely successful free booklet, the Green Guide, is now available online with its own dedicated website.

Throughout this year the team at Classic Cottages has investigated and adopted new ways of working, both as a business and with their property owners and visitors.  The drive to operating in a sustainable and ‘green’ way led to the development of the Green Guide and the new website. is designed to provide useful information to individuals and property owners who are considering ways to make their home or property more eco friendly.

Simon Tregoning, managing director of Classic Cottages said:  “We produced the free booklet, Classic Cottages’ Green Guide, at the end of last year. is the obvious progression for us as it allows us to add updated information regularly and more importantly, interact with people who may have their own ideas, hints and tips.

“The site has a great forum area for people to suggest new things or comment on our ideas. We really want the site to grow and evolve over time to become an essential resource for people considering ways to make changes to their properties.”

The family run agency, which markets more than 700 properties across the south west, has spent the past year championing green tourism initiatives, both within their own business and the self catering properties they market.  As a result of Classic Cottages’ commitment to environmental awareness the company has just been awarded Gold by the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
