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.

Really Excellent!

5 of 5
This is our second stay at 2 Stippy Stappy. As previously, it was perfectly clean and welcoming. The trees that line the path directly outside the cottage that leads to the beach have been cleared to make it even easier to access Trevanance Cove. There is new furniture in the garden which is a bit of a sun trap and a tv / dvd to entertain the kids. We used some of the excellent local guidebooks and maps provided in the cottage to do several walks in and around the area, both towards the beacon and along the cliffs. Driftwood Spars down at the cove has great beers brewed by themselves which are worth tasting in detail! Also recommended is the Cornish Pizza Company. We will definitely return to the cottage in the future, it has every mod con you can think of and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere with contemporary decor in a traditional fisherman’s cottage setting.
