Holiday firm goes Classic Green


A new scheme which green grades environmentally-friendly properties in Cornwall has been launched by specialist holiday lettings company Classic Cottages.

Thought to be one of the first holiday lettings companies in the UK to come up with its own in-house initiative, Helston-based Classic Cottages has highlighted and rated 16 of its properties across its portfolio in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset so far.

The ‘Classic Green’ scheme identifies holiday cottages where additional steps have been taken by the owners to be kinder to the environment and create less of a carbon footprint. Qualifying properties are identified with the ‘Classic Green’ leaf logo.

MD Anthony Skitt said: “As a responsible business, we want to make a practical commitment and contribution to protecting our environment.”
