A hidden gem. This Eco retreat boasts a fantastic location next to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and within a World Heritage Site. Only 500 metres from the beautiful southwest coast-path, and a lovely little cove. Ideal for those wishing to relax, unwind and rejuvenate. The charming north Cornish coast village of St.Agnes is a 5 minute drive away, or for the more energetic, a great 25 minute walk along the southwest coast-path, with superb views of the sea and cliffs. The village has all the facilities needed to enjoy your stay, with a handful of great pubs and top class restaurants specialising in locally sourced food. There is plenty of art galleries, craft shops and even a small museum.
Set within its own paddock, it is immersed in nature and overlooks a paddock which houses 2 resident pygmy goats. It has a small stream running along its border. The south facing decking is kitted out with rustic outdoor seating and tables on which to enjoy your al fresco dining. A small wild flower lawn also boasts a fire pit which can be used as a b-b-q on summer nights.
The interior is fresh and stylishly furnished with up cycled tables and chairs. The whole ambience is peaceful, calm and easy on the eye. Whilst there is a feeling of simplicity and luxury the charm of its setting speaks for itself.
The Oldgoathouse is ideal for those who either want to escape to relax or who wish to take advantage of the fantastic natural landscape and seek out more activity in the form of walking, kayaking, surfing or cycling.

Peregrine falcons are amongst the regulars.
Sea kayaking tours can also be enjoyed, hosted by a local company, who provide tuition and wet-suits. Spot the beauty from sea-level,
passing along the base of 200ft high cliffs, and amongst hidden coves and natural sea-caves.
