Cornwall is trailing near the bottom of a list of the best places to rent a holiday home in the UK.

Tripadvisor says reviews from travellers put us 14th out of 18 areas.

Somerset is top.

Briony Beresford runs Cornish Retreats which rents out cottages across west Cornwall.

She says she is surprised but other factors are playing a part: "We are one of the furthest counties to reach which ultimately means more costs in fuel and people certainly are being more careful about how and where they spend their money. The second factor is the weather. People are nervous about booking their holidays if there's no guarantee of the sun.

"Cornwall is a good holiday destination and I think people generally have a high expectation. You can get your high end luxury accommodation offering all sorts of mod cons and you can get your really good value for money. I certainly think that Cornwall offers all of that."

These were the points awarded to holiday rental properties in each area:

Somerset 4.84

Pembrokeshire 4.81

East Anglia 4.81

Edinburgh 4.80

Kent 4.79

Scottish Highlands 4.78

Yorkshire 4.78

Gloucestershire 4.77

North Wales 4.77

Northumberland 4.77

South East England 4.77

Derbyshire 4.77

Devon 4.76

Cornwall 4.76

Dorset 4.76

East Sussex 4.75

Cumbria 4.64

London 4.60
