We have a selection of holiday accommodation in other beautiful places in this county which might be of interest to you; we change the holiday homes featured periodically.
This time we have picked out spacious properties with spectacular sea views on the north coast near Padstow, a rural property just outside Polperro and to-die-for locations on the iconic Helford river and Carrick Roads around Falmouth on the south coast.
