Here in Seattle we are celebrating Cinco de Mayo–not sure why, but we love an excuse to celebrate.
Nonetheless, I have romantic yearnings for windswept seascapes and charming villages. Cornwall it is . . . in England of course.
For the intrepid family of five, I have found the following Cornwall locations that can house you (see another Cornwall hotel):
Longcross Hotel in Port Isaac has a room called The Stable that will take in your family of 5. Room 8 will also sleep a family of four with the possibility of a cot. The Coach House Suite can sleep 5 or 6. Prices include breakfast.

Old Coastguard Hotel in Mousehole (pronounce Mowzel for you non Brits) has beautiful sea views, cots are 5 pounds a day and children are 25 pounds extra a day. Check with reception to confirm about accommodations for family of five (include ages). Website is www.oldcoastguardhotel.co.uk.

Seaview Holiday Village between Looe and Polperro is more of a budget option with various forms of self catering cottages, caravans, and bungalows. Be sure to confirm complete details about your accommodations incuding views and location to avoid misunderstandings. Almost all scenarios will take a family of five. There are lots of kid friendly facilities (heated pool) and entertainment available.

[Sold as of 2016 may be temporarily closed, website no longer up.]Tregoninny Farm Bed and Breakfast is further inland, peaceful, bucolic, and particularly accommodating to those with physical disabilities. The first floor of the “barn” has a suite that will sleep 5 including a kitchen. They also have other configurations of rooms with various interlocking doors that could keep a family of five all together.
These are just a few. Let me know if you have others to recommend. Happy travels, I can feel the breezes now . . .
