A guide to the West Country from the people who know…
A few years ago, the Classic Cottages team started writing about where we live and why we love it. It began with a series of mini-guides designed to help guests in our holiday cottages get the most of their holiday. Over time these have evolved into the Classic Guide, our 'do-it-yourself' travel guide to things to do and places to visit in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
