If you were looking for cottages like Wild Meadow Cabin, how about trying these:

Yes indeed, the name says it all; a gorgeous little cabin in a pretty, wild meadow (well, not that wild, it's got mown paths and gently swaying grass in among the wildflowers). With stunning panoramic views over countryside and creek you'll start to chill out the moment you arrive. Who remembers the art of doing nothing, of sitting back and allowing the cares of the world to seep away? Gorgeous Wild Meadow Cabin is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the art of inactivity. From the moment you plonk yourselves down in the low chairs on the raised wooden deck and take in the superb views your inner calmness and tranquility will return. You can read a book, sip a drink or star gaze to your heart's content (no light pollution here). Perched at the top of a gently sloping three acre meadow Wild Meadow Cabin offers a taste of idyllic rural life where birdsong is the only sound likely to disturb your peace and quiet. With wildlife galore there is always something to spot; red deer creep out from the nearby woods to graze at the tree line while buzzards, owls and badgers are frequent visitors too and a gentle colony of honey bees busily build honeycombs in their hives at the bottom of the meadow. The timber walls of Wild Meadow Cabin are painted in calming Farrow and Ball French Grey, with pretty checked curtains at the windows and a gloriously thick-piled rug on the living-room floor. Retro vintage style abounds, with a 1950s kitchen sideboard for storage and a stainless steel sink unit. Hot and cold water, a fridge for chilling your wine and two portable induction hobs make cooking a doddle and electric lights, a wood-burner and a TV and DVD player will keep you warm and snug and entertained in the evenings. No rough camping here, the little bedroom has a double bed with super comfy mattress and the shower-room with its electric double shower and groovy wash-basin/loo combo is accessed via a step down from the living-room (but can also be accessed from outside too). Tucked away at the end of a mile-long lane, seclusion is guaranteed. When you arrive you park near the Owners' house and use the wheelbarrow provided to take your luggage along the lane, through the field gate and up through the meadow to the cabin at the top (it's a fairly steep incline so takes a little effort, but the Owner is usually around to help and the panoramic view from the top is well worth it). With the whole meadow all to yourselves there is space to spread out and find a spot for sunbathing, snoozing, flower picking or navel gazing...the choice is yours. Just three miles from the narrow streets and sailing waters of picturesque Fowey, the Cabin is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The little village of Golant is a mile away across the fields and has a waterside pub and a gig rowing club (two essentials of traditional Cornish life!). You can launch kayaks, dinghies and canoes from the small inner harbour and paddle lazily upstream to pretty St Winnow or downstream to Fowey for a pub lunch or delicious cream tea. There are sandy beaches at Readymoney Cove and Polkerris (where Sams on the Beach is a great place for a meal) and the Eden Project and Heligan Gardens are close by. Wild Meadow Cabin is a fabulous setting for a romantic get-away-from-it-all luxury glamping holiday.
