Hello Pauline,

Thanks for putting this list together. I wanted to let you know that Cornish Holiday Cottages have changed their website address, in case you'd like to update your list. The new URL is: https://www.cornishholidaycottages.com/

I'd also like to propose a few more vacation rental agencies for Cornwall.

We highly recommend this small family-owned agency based in Chipping Campden. Their properties are in Chipping Campden and nearby villages. We've rented from them several times, and I've gotten to know the owners. I've just rented a different cottage for a month this summer. Honeypot Cottages: https://www.honeypotcottages.co.uk/

It's been many a year since I've needed to find UK holiday rentals / B&Bs etc. but I certainly used to rely heavily on the local tourist information office (seemingly now rebranded as https://www.visitbritain.com/gb/en ).

Amazingly it must be 2 decades since I used them though!
