    “Beautiful house in a great location”

    Turfrick is a lovely house, recently refurbished in a modern style but still cosy and welcoming ...

    Turfrick is a lovely house, recently refurbished in a modern style but still cosy and welcoming. We stayed for a week in May and were able to enjoy both the front terrace, with its views over St Agnes town, and the rear garden where we sat around the huge firepit on the raised patio at night with a glass of wine. The three bedrooms are a good size with comfortable beds. The master bedroom is in the original loft space so has velux windows which allow you to look at the stars or have a private view over the town while sitting in bed! The kitchen is very well equipped with everything we needed and the large living area has lots of seating and is very bright due to the glazed exterior doors which lead onto the front terrace on one side and the rear garden on the other. In terms of location it's excellent. Within a couple of minutes walk is St Agnes town, including a couple of very nice pubs. A couple of small supermarkets are within 12-15 minutes gentle walk. The road down to the beach is also very close, so you could be on St Agnes beach within 20 minutes of leaving the house. And of course St Agnes is perfectly placed to explore the rest of the North Cornwall coast or, in less than an hour's drive, the south coast. Overall the house is perfect for a Cornish stay. A few tips: * You can drive down to St Agnes beach but the parking is quite costly. If you go in the town-run car park (just on the left opposite the toilets) it's £2 all day - but you need to get there reasonably early. * The Tap House is the closest pub, only a few minutes walk from the house, and does good food * Our favourite pub by far was the Miners Arms in Mithian, only around 10 minutes drive from the house - lovely old pub with lots of nooks & crannies, incredibly friendly and with a very good menu & lovely beer. We stopped in there nearly every day!

The property

A contemporary coastal home with light-filled interiors and clean lines, minutes from the golden sand and pumping surf at Trevaunance Cove in St Agnes.

Quietly tucked away in the heart of this buzzing seaside village, with a good degree of privacy, Turfrick occupies a superb vantage point.

Relax on the south-facing decked terrace and soak up the sea air, and views which swoop over rooftops towards the iconic engine house from which the property derived its name.

Forget the car and venture out on foot!

You will enjoy the luxury of the location with excellent restaurants/bars, old inns, cafes and art galleries within paces.

There is also a local bakers, butchers, greengrocers and convenience store for supplies. Beautiful Trevaunance Cove is your playground and dogs are welcome in all seasons too!

Lifeguarded in the summer months, it is popular among families and little explorers will love the rock pools and the ice cream parlour.

A favoured haunt for surfers, there is a surf school offering tuition for all abilities and equipment hire.

For a romantic dinner, create a memorable experience and book a table at The Driftwood Spars Bistro or Schooners for delicious food with spectacular views over the beach.

Ramblers will rejoice with access to the coastal footpath for stunning cliff walks or to St Agnes Beacon for windswept isolation and epic 360 degree views.

An excellent venue for couples and families and a superb base for exploring with visitor hotspots at St Ives, Padstow, Watergate Bay and Newquay all within easy reach. This gorgeous detached dormer bungalow with an enclosed garden and terraces for barbecues and outdoor living is set back from the road and approached by a stepped path.

Step inside and discover a laid-back beach house style.

Accentuating the coastal feel, large picture windows bathe generous rooms with light and bi-fold doors slide open from the sitting room to the deck for an outside-in atmosphere.

Keep warm beside the fire pit on the sheltered terrace or snuggle up on deep modern sofas beside the warming glow of the wood burner with a good book from the collection provided.

The kitchen dining room is laden with good quality appliances.

There are three comfy bedrooms, a family bathroom with a luxurious tub and a separate shower room completes the accommodation.

Outside you have a surf store shed for beach and other outdoor equipment.
