Currently your description will not help you get visitors. You
have very few keywords and a lot of junk words. People do not
need to know that the site is "website designed by a family from
Cornwall in the U.K."

They only need to know what the site offers. No fluff and no
glamor in your description. This is Yahoo and they will change
if they don't like it. It is best to give a description that
will help you and they will not change.

Something like this will work better:

Inland and harbour holiday cottages to let in Cornwall UK.
Information for local attractions and history also available.

It is simple and to the point. Currently the wording you are
using will not gain you any visitors from the US and probably
very few from Canada. The term "holiday" is not used in the US
at all except to descript a national holiday (Memorial Day,
Thanksgiving, etc.) the term used in the US is "vacation". The
term "let" is known by few in the US, the term "rent" or "lease"
is used.
