"Fantastic cottage in a wonderful location!"
A beautiful cottage, kept immaculately. The owners attention to detail made it a step above others we have stayed in - everything has been thought of to make your stay so comfortable. A wonderful location - in the heart of a lovely village (and a minute away from the best ever bakery), and a short walk to a beautiful beach and cove. We ventured out and about in Cornwall but could have spent the entire week in St Agnes and been happy. Thanks!

"Picturesque Cornish beauty, a home from home."
After a few hours thawing out on the couch this December we decided that No. 2 could well be credited with introducing the concept of the boutique self-catering holiday. As frequent visitors to St. Agnes we've often taken the picturesque Stippy Stappy path into town and having noticed the property on Trip Advisor we were keen to explore.
Almost all eventualities seems to be catered for by the owners, from the garden area and optimistic barbecue outside, to the books, dvds and wi-fi in the house. A stone's throw from the centre of town, five minutes from the coast and more importantly, the Driftwood Spa (with its own microbrewery and roaring fires) No. 2 made for a perfect pre-christmas getaway and we can't wait to find another excuse to get back there.
A total home-from-home, the only problem is dragging yourself away.
