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.

I stayed here for a week in February. It's a wonderful little cottage. The road up to it looks a little scary but after doing it once you realise how easy it is. As a Londoner I am used to big... more
We did enjoy meeting you both and your lovely little dog.Thank you for your kind comments-so glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back.

I recently stayed in St Agnes for the first time. We were so blessed to find this beautiful quaint cottage with lots of original features. It was a great place to bring my young children as everything was catered for. The hostess and her son were incredibly accommodating and very helpful. We enjoyed the cosy atmosphere and the beautiful Cornish countryside that surrounded us. The beach which is a ten minute walk was just lovely and my children enjoyed the rock pools and we even saw the sun. I will definately be recommending the house to my friends and will visit again :)
We enjoyed meeting you and the two children and to know that they enjoyed the trips to the beach in spite of the season!Hopefully when you next visit it will be in the summer holidays and no doubt they will want to live on the beach!So pleased that you loved the cottage with it's features and we look forward to welcoming you back when you return in the school summer holiday.

I will be recommending this lovely little place to all our friends, it is truly a warm, cosy cottage. The land lady has been devastated by the comment from the last guest. All of it is absolute rubbish! The lady who lives on the site , makes you feel so welcome, and does everything to make your stay a happy one! Thank you, and we will be back again shortly!
It was lovely to meet you both and we are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay enough to book another week in June.We were happy to read that you were warm and cosy and that you didn't find it difficult to park your four wheel drive.We look forward to welcoming you on your return visit in the summer.
