    “Lovely cottage in a beautiful area of Cornwall, beach a 15 min walk away (toilets, bars and places to eat at the beach).”

    I went alone with my 2 children and would say St Agnus may be better suited to couples due to the bars and restaurants in the village seeming busy and a bit lively on a night but the cottage had good facilities so we could cook and invited others round and there were plenty of crockery and glasses to entertain. ...

    I went alone with my 2 children and would say St Agnus may be better suited to couples due to the bars and restaurants in the village seeming busy and a bit lively on a night but the cottage had good facilities so we could cook and invited others round and there were plenty of crockery and glasses to entertain. Parking was a bit difficult but I usually got a space on the road 5- 10 mins away and there is is free car park at the top of the road in the village which I needed to use once. I could not find the instructions for the hob and after a quick google discovered it required the pan to be in situ to come on. No iron- thought there was supposed to be one but I may be wrong. Who wants to iron on holiday anyway! Overall a lovely holiday cottage and would be happy to go again.

The property

18 British Road, is a handsome 18th century stone built cottage located in the heart of St. Agnes.

Newly refurbished, the cottage has been carefully restored to provide a beautiful home from home and is ideal for families or friends wanting to visit this beautiful part of Cornwall.

Inside you'll find original wooden floors, exposed beams and a large stone fireplace with a wood burning stove, perfect for those cosy evenings in after a bracing day walking the coastal past.

The newly renovated kitchen is well equipped with everything you'll need during your holiday and has a small bistro table - ideal for morning coffee before a day of adventures.

On the first floor, are three pretty bedrooms, two double rooms and a room with full size bunk beds.

They share a gleaming family bathroom.

To the front of the cottage is a small sitting out area with a table, chairs and BBQ - a good spot to sit and enjoy a glass of something cool after a relaxing day on the beach.

Tucked away in a truly stunning and unspoilt designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as being a World Heritage Site, St Agnes has everything you need close by.

Just a short stroll from the cottage you'll find a good choice of excellent restaurants and shops selling local produce, tasty treats and gifts, with events and gigs held in the town all-year-round.

St Agnes has a rich mining heritage, which is evident at the St Agnes Museum, while walkers can enjoy pretty footpaths and bridleways, or jump on the South West Coast Path in either direction to enjoy superb coastal views.

Choose from four glorious, sandy beaches, offering superb Atlantic surfing conditions, as well as swimming and other activities like body boarding, including the lovely, family-friendly Trevaunance Cove and unspoilt Chapel Porth Beach.

The popular coastal town of Newquay, considered to be the surfing capital of the UK, as well as a host of other fantastic beaches along the north Cornwall coast, including Perranporth, Crantock and Fistral are within easy reach.

Cornwall's only city, Truro, is a short drive away, with its Victorian Gothic cathedral that overlooks the river, while renowned attractions of Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are an easy car journey away.

18 British Road is a fantastic retreat for exploring the north Cornwall coast.
