Much of what draws travellers to Saint Agnes is done out of doors. There are four beautiful beaches where those on holiday can swim, play or just relax. A hike to Saint Agnes Head is a great way to get a fabulous view of the birds that make their living at the seashore. Perhaps you’ll even catch sight of other sea life, such as a seal or dolphin. If you enjoy surfing, some of the best around can be found on the beaches of nearby Newquay.

Stippy Stappy is a row of cottages that is quite well-known throughout the country. These oft photographed homes were used by either miner or sea captains – this is still up for debate. Those up for a bit of a challenge can climb to the top of Saint Agnes Beacon. From there, visitors will have an unobstructed view of beautiful coastline.

The cottage was very well equipped, particularly the kitchen and we found everything we needed for a really pleasant stay. The garden is nice and spacious and great for the children, as is the wifi! The beach is a bit of a walk down quite a steep and very rough cliff path but within 15 minutes you are on a lovely beach, with good facilities and life guards. We enjoyed many days on the beach - wind break a must! and purchased one or two ice creams from the Moomaids of Zennor! There is a nice pub - The Victory Inn nearby and there are several supermarkets within a 10 minute drive. We visited St Ives a couple of times which has lovely beaches and excellent shopping and Perranporth as we could take the dog on the beach and buy him a doggie ice cream (Chicken flavour!). We were lucky with the weather and it stayed dry most days but on a rainy day we visited the seal sanctuary which was quite nice but also quite expensive. Overall I would recommend Towancott, the owner is very helpful and answered any queries we had very promptly.

                                                                                              4 of 5

Really glad we did. So nice to have access to such a beautiful beach and the coastal path without getting in the car. First time in St Agnes, and loved it. It has a perfect setting with lots of places to eat and drink and a nice atmosphere. The accommodation is small, with only two single beds at one end and a kitchen at the other. There is also a large wooden porch built into the front with room to sit and outside patio. Plenty of room to park your car though. On arrival we found the cottage very clean with towels and made up beds. The kitchen has everything you need but there is no oven, only the microwave. Nice clean bathroom with good shower. Only negative was that Internet wifi is not a given. Only really seemed to work when you sat in the front porch or outside. Amazingly you could then pick up the wifi from the pub across the road. Would definitely stay again.

The lodge itself has been done to a high spec and is well equipped with everything except kitchen equipment. A few more mugs, glasses etc would have been helpful. The lodge is compact but we'll set out. St Agnes is amazing. Can't recommend that highly enough. Enjoy!
