Classic Cottages has expanded its portfolio by more than 80 properties, following the acquisition of Roseland Holiday Cottages.

Roseland’s former owners, Leonie and Rick Ibbotson, will continue to run day-to-day operations with the back-up of digital expertise and support from Classic’s head office in Helston.

“We are thrilled to have Roseland Holiday Cottages as part of our portfolio,” commented Classic Cottages Group chairman, Simon Tregoning.

“The properties are a great match for Classic – we are sure our guests will love them.  We are also looking forward to working with Leonie and Rick.”

The acquisition was dealt with in Cornwall with legal representation from Truro-based Murrell Associates and accountants Bishop Fleming taking care of the due diligence.
