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!
