Things to do on holiday to Saint Agnes

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. The area has a rich history as a port and mining town, so some travellers also like to explore that aspect of Saint Agnes. 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.

Places to visit on holiday to Saint Agnes

Consider some of the nearby museums where travellers can learn about the mining history of the region, view works of art or learn about local maritime history at the National Maritime Museum in Cornwall.

Very quiet and comfortable apartment. Joanna always responded very quickly before and during our trip - we only had one concern. The washer did not work, but Joanna immediately had it serviced. Joanna provided tea (even my fav Earl Grey) and some danish for our arrival. Great location very near the train station and town is also a very short 10-15 minute walk. We would buy groceries and just stay in to enjoy the view for most meals. Wonderful town and stay!

You cannot ask for better sea views. It has instant access to a range of pubs, restaurants, small shops, bakery, pharmacy, post office. We were really pleased that the flat also offers free parking in a reasonably sized garage, so our car was safe while we were enjoying our stay. The wine and scones offered by the owners on arrival were a very nice (and tasty) gesture. Lily and Sue have also been extremely helpful and guided us during our travel to Cornwall so we found the flat really easily. We would definitely recommend the apartment and will return as soon as we are back in Cornwall. Thank you Lily and Sue.
