The Cottage has been extensively renovated and refurbished now having a double bedroom,a twin bedroom and two shower rooms,whilst still retaining it's three hundred year old character.It is light and tastefully decorated in neutral colours and simply furnished to a high standard.
St Agnes is a popular,yet unspoiled village in a rural setting close to beautiful sandy beaches.It is renowned for it's outstanding natural beauty attracting artists from all over the country.St Agnes is a friendly retreat where holiday makers are made welcome.There are various shops in the village from food stores, bakery, chemist, butcher, newsagent, florist and post office to a bank ,hairdressers and art and craft shops. Old pubs and restaurants abound in the narrow streets and lanes,and there is a Chinese take away and restaurant, and a fish and chip shop,plus superb hot pasties from the bakery.
There are many village events in the summer-the annual carnival,the steam engine rally,the art exhibition and the lifeboat day spectacular.
The sandy beach at Trevaunance Cove is popular with surfers and families and is manned by lifeguards.It has beach shops,cafes,a smugglers'pub and toilets.Walkers enjoy joining the famous cliff walk around the county from here.

"Does the job, but no more"
The surroundings and garden are really nice, and the cottage itself is very clean and has everything you need. The owner, Julia, was very nice and provided us with a bottle of wine, milk and cream tea… More
We were surprised at your comments.The cottage is typical size for a Cornish miner's cottage and we think that the photos do reflect that.Other guests have commented that our prices are very reasonable and in order to keep our prices down there is an electric meter but we do give some initial electric and it is set very reasonably.We are sorry that the central heating broke down and as you know we immediately called our plumber,put two electric radiators in the cottage ,money in the meter to run them and gave you an extra bottle of wine for the inconvenience.It wasn't a case of not knowing how the heating worked-we didn't want to alter the settings before our plumber arrived.
