In an article published last Friday, the newspaper compiled a list of the top six holiday lettings websites in the country, and named the Classic Cottages website as the best of any regional holiday agency and the overall winner from the shortlisted sites.

The Helston-based company markets more than 700 self-catering holiday homes in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset and takes 85% of its bookings through the website.

Citing what makes Classic’s website stand out, the Daily Mail article describes it as “pleasantly seductive”, “easy to use”, and says “everything is thoroughly reassuring: the agency promises that it checks all its properties annually, and, for example, you can specify being within one mile of a sandy beach (note not just any beach, but a sandy beach)”.

Classic Cottages MD, Anthony Skitt, said: “In recent years we have invested significantly in the website to make it as user-friendly and appealing to guests as possible, so it is fantastic to be recognised for our efforts by a national newspaper.”
