The property

Situated within a 10 minute walk of Trevaunance Cove, the main beach at St Agnes and a family best kept secret. In the heart of St Agnes, Off Square is on Cornwall's north coast renowned for its beaches and seaside towns.

Well positioned to experience at leisure the outstanding natural beauty and old world charm of this historic coastal town. A happy mix of holiday resort and thriving local community, St Agnes has a vibrant atmosphere year round and is a popular venue for romantic breaks and family holidays. A hub of old inns, restaurants, galleries, museum, fishmonger, butcher, baker, grocer and post office can be found within moments and there is a packed calendar of events including an annual carnival.Visitors never fail to be impressed with the dominant landmark of St Agnes Beacon found to the west of the village. This prominent steep hill which is National Trust owned can be explored on foot and rewards those who reach its summit with magnificent panoramic views spanning as far west as St Ives to Trevose Head near Padstow. The coastal footpath will transport ramblers along a picturesque coastline past ancient mining ruins and over heather crowned cliff tops which descend into hidden white sand coves. There are three beaches within walking distance, some with life guard patrol during the busier months, and a surf school which offers tuition and equipment hire. A few miles inland is the vibrant cathedral city of Truro and the awe inspiring gardens at the Eden Project are within easy reach.

Aptly named, this well-appointed property nestles amidst local life with views over the town square and is positioned on the first floor and above the owner's gift shop. Original wood floor boards, a stone fireplace and old beams, add character to the sitting room/diner which incorporates an electric coal effect fire and soft leather seating. The kitchen and bathroom are distinctly modern and a spacious master bedroom with an antique style bed and a twin bedroom complete the accommodation. Roadside parking maybe found nearby or there is free parking in the village car park just 3 minutes walk from the property.
