Councillors have rejected plans for two wind farms in north Cornwall because they say they would ruin the landscape.
Proposals for two 9m (29ft) high turbines at the Treetops Holiday Park in Week St Mary were rejected.
North Cornwall District Council also threw out an application for three 81m (265ft) turbines at Morwenstow, saying they would have looked “dreadful”.
But applicant West Coast Energy said the need for green energy should have over-ridden objections.
Spokesman Steve Salt said: “There is a need for renewable energy and there is a need for wind energy, we felt we had a good application here.”
