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

Just a mile from the superb surfing waves and glorious sandy beaches at Perranporth, this fabulous Georgian farmhouse is the perfect holiday location for big family gatherings and groups of friends.

The huge kitchen/dining-room is the hub of the house, with a wood-burner in the dining-area and doors out to the terraced garden and meadow. The sitting-room is a chill-out zone, chic and luxurious with velvet sofas, deep armchairs and a warming wood-burner, while the family/games-room has a pool table, big wall-mounted television and huge corner sofa large enough to seat everyone for family film evenings or all-important football matches.

A walk-in wet-room with twin drench-head showers and a drying rack for wetsuits is wonderful after trips to the beach, and the whole downstairs is warmed by under-floor heating from a ground source heat pump, with solar thermal panels providing oodles of hot water (all backed up by an impressive boiler system and radiators upstairs). There are seven superbly comfortable bedrooms, five with en suite facilities and two sharing the family bathroom and a shower-room below.

Found in the little hamlet of Bolingey, Trevellance is just a short walk from the charming Bolingey Inn which serves local beers and excellent food.
