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.

What an amazing place to stay!

5 of 5
I could not fault this property or area if I tried. Me and my family had the most lovely experience staying here. The property was spotless when we arrived. Beds beautifully made, the house was kept very tidy and clean and had all of the information you could possibly need in a very useful, clear and easy to understand booklet. The owner had kindly writen out places they would recommend visiting and all of the best restaurants to try. We visited most of the restaurants in St Agnes and had lovely meals every time. We also visited lots of the local areas and beaches and had lots of fun getting to know all of the lovely local people. It was especially perfect for us as a family with young children as there are children's books and toys in the house for them to use as they please and once they had gone to bed what topped everything off was that we could relax in the hot tub on the balcony overlooking the beautiful views of St Agnes as it lights up at night. I would recommend this property to anyone and have already told all of my friends and family to get booking. Will definitely be back next year!
