If you were looking for cottages like The Round, how about trying these:

A fabulous home with breathtaking sea views in a heavenly location set on the banks of the idyllic and tranquil setting of Gillan Creek, near the Helford river mouth. With five beautifully appointed bedrooms, gorgeous living spaces and your own private quay, this is a truly exceptional holiday retreat, perfect for extended families or groups of friends looking for the ultimate luxury getaway. The Round is an exceptional home lovingly restored by the owners within a unique setting, found down verdant lanes, you will find yourself not wanting to leave. There's oceans of room for everyone to spread out and relax in this house, the kitchen/diner is a great place to enjoy long lazy breakfasts or perhaps open the French doors to the patio and dine under the candlelight listening for the waves breaking gently on the shore while watching the moonlight reflect on the sea. The sitting-room has large snuggly sofas where you can unwind after a day on the water and there is also a handy snug at the back of the house for those wanting to escape or perhaps watch a film. Upstairs you will find the five fabulous bedrooms with four of them boasting magnificent sea views. The enormous main bedroom has a luxurious super-king bed where you can enjoy your morning coffee from the coffee machine looking out at the sea or perhaps wander out to your roof terrace (shared with bedroom two) and stretch out in the morning sun on the lounger with a good book, what a way to start the day. The main bedroom of course has an exquisite en suite shower-room too. Each bedroom has been spared no luxury and all have sumptuous mattresses and crisp linens; the next bedroom along the hallway is bedroom two with a super-king bed and access to the roof terrace which is a real slice of heaven and bedroom three has another super-king bed that can be set up as twins depending on your party's requirements. The end bedroom (bedroom four) has the best views, we feel, along with a dressing-room and en suite shower-room. The bunk room is perfect for children and shares the family bathroom with bedrooms two and three.
