Aside from its sheer natural beauty, Cornwall also boasts some of the best holiday cottages around where you can relax and unwind, surrounded by gorgeous, rolling countryside - and many have hot tubs on offer.
So, let's take a look at the 15 best luxury cottages in Cornwall with hot tubs from Slingo’s lifestyle news.
