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.

The owner is very thoughtful and on our arrival we found flowers, pastries, tea,coffee, milk and a bottle of prosecco. It's these thoughtful gestures that make staying in this apartment very special. A truly amazing place to relax and explore Falmouth and surrounding area from.

And the lodge had everything we needed for a perfectly comfortable and relaxing stay, superbly equipped open plan kitchen and high quality fittings and fixtures throughout. 3 lovely comfortable bedrooms, 1 with ensuite. Huge deck area with very professional looking BBQ and lots of seats/loungers. All the doors open wide onto the deck, plenty of privacy and room even though close to other lodges. Couldn't have asked for more! We visit St Agnes regularly and this has been by far the most relaxing and enjoyable stay we've had. Can't wait to come back, many thanks!

It was cosy and warm, with everything you could need. The cottage is just off the road, yet so quiet. All of the shops and bars are close by and the cove is just a 5 minute walk away. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
