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

There are sanctuaries for monkeys, large birds, seals and even screech owls. There are also theme parks, aquatic centres and important historic buildings. On rainy days, you might want find some indoor activities. 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 cottage was like home, equipped with everything, even some toys for the children and a little library. From the front windows one has a lovely view of the ruins of a Cornish mine and a cattle field. The cottage is within walking distance to the beach and coastal path, and within walking distance to pubs, shops, post office and bus stop. St. Agnes is a nice little town and perfectly located for daytrips throughout Cornwall (the next major road is just a few miles away).
