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.

We was made aware that access to the property may be a challenge depending on our car so we parked on the street down the lane and this turned out to be a blessing!. The short walk to the cottage was stunning, the scenery was beautiful and due to the road being narrow it was lovely to distance ourself from normal traffic noise and make the most of the beautiful scenery and nature. We can't wait to visit again, and couldn't recommend this property enough, it had recently been decorated and was such a pleasant atmosphere, the owners were fantastic and everything was ready for us when we arrived. Looking forward to our lovely trip again soon.

It is clean, full of light and delightfully well furnished . The kitchen is as fully equipped, functional and easy to work as our own. We settled in like it was home within an hour or two. We could not recommend Tremanners too highly, especially since we have previously rented two different places in the same village which were dire (but not through Owners Direct). It was lovely to have a very comfortable lounge to retire to when the weather outside was cold and wet and windy (this being March).

It is equipped with everything you need, from Le Creuset cookingware to first class sanitary equipment. The interior design is cosy and fresh, so rainy days are also no problem. We loved the proximity to the harbor/beach which offers waes for bodyboarding or surfing. St Agnes itself is a beautiful, small village, that was very quiet while we were there in March. We would love to come back!
