The property

With glimpses of the sea at Trevaunance Cove and within a minutes stroll of the sandy beach and coastal footpaths, Sea Thrift is an attractive apartment in St Agnes, perfectly placed for families and groups to enjoy Cornwall's Atlantic coast hot-spot destinations, offering a peaceful ambiance within a vibrant Cornish community.

St Agnes is historically famous for its harbour, now lost to the
sea and its sheltered cove providing a sun haven for bathers and surfers, where dogs are permitted on the sands all year round. There are hidden caves for exploration or try your hand at fishing at high tide from Trevaunance Point. There are eateries, shops and the award winning Driftwood Spars pub, serving good food and fine Cornish ales within a stone's throw of the apartment. Rich in mining and sea-faring heritage, St Agnes nestles in the lee of St Agnes Beacon and is a favoured spot for walkers. Discover the 2 hour cliff path to Porthtowan, stroll along the beach at low tide to Trevellas Porth or follow the path to Chapel Porth with its wilder surf.

Sea Thrift has spacious and beautifully presented accommodation, all on one level, with a double aspect living room with a wood burner to keep you toasty through all seasons. The farmhouse kitchen is well equipped and offers a dining area where all the family can enjoy lazy breakfasts. The private garden and terrace is ideal for alfresco dining. Visit the National Trust's Godrevy with its island lighthouse and Gwithian Beach or the dramatic coastline at Hell's Mouth. Newquay is a 30 minute drive away and is blessed with beaches for swimming, surfing, walking and sandcastles. There are shops and galleries galore, restaurants, cafes and the famous zoo.
