Holiday Cottages in St Agnes

View our guide to St Agnes in North Cornwall

St Agnes is a pretty little village which was once a very busy mining centre; there are many old engine houses that remain in the area. The old Cornish name for St Agnes is Bryanick (pointed or prominent hill) - the village was given this name due to The Beacon, a 628 foot high landmark from which panoramic views of the Cornish coastline can be enjoyed. On a clear day, 23 miles of coast and 32 church towers can be seen from the top.

The buildings of the village reflect its past; cosy miners' cottages through the village and Sea Captains' cottages down the 'Stippy Stappy' hillside. It is easy to imagine what life would have been like in the village in times gone by.

Contemporarily, St Agnes provides an ideal base for touring the north Cornwall coast. The surrounding area (it is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) is peaceful and provides many interesting pretty walks either along the coast or further inland. We recommend a walk that follows the mining trail from Wheal Coates tin mine at Chapel Porth to Blue Hills, Trevellas - the last remaining Cornish tin production site, passing old workings at Polberro and Wheal Kitty.

There are several cafes, pubs, bistros and restaurants in the village - including The Peterville Inn, The Railway Inn and Taste Restaurant - as well as a couple of small supermarkets and some craft shops and galleries. The St Agnes Museum has free entry but is only open during the summer months. This interesting little museum details the history of the village and its people, some of whom are still resident in the local area.

On the outskirts of St Agnes there is a crafts complex, Morgan's, which has free entry. Morgan's sells a variety of goods, from pottery through to candles and homemade fudge. There is also a cafe serving good coffee and homemade food.

There are a couple of beaches in the area; a small local beach named Trevaunance Cove that is overlooked by the Driftwood Spars Hotel - a seventeenth century building which was originally a fish cellar - as well as the National Trust beach at Chapel Porth (with engine houses and the famous Hedgehog Ice Creams!) and the little-known Trevellas-Porth.

The St Agnes area has a heritage of industrial archeology and much of the landscape is of considerable geological interest. There are also stone-age remains in the parish. The manor of Tywarnhaile was one of the 17 'Antiqua maneria' (ancient manors) of the Duchy of Cornwall.
