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.

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.

It is spacious and full of sunlight. Very calm place and the hosts are extremely friendly, helpful and discreet. Not only the kitchen has a stunning view over the St Agnes Coastline and is very well equipped. There is even a dishwasher and oven for Sunday roast. The wintergarden was our favorite spot to sit and read. Large windows that display seaview, comfy chairs and good reading material. The bedroom has a huge window and you have a sea view from the bed if you sleep on the right side. The Little Hive is a place you could stretch your legs for weeks on end - but then again it is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Cornwall so you just want to venture out and discover the surroundings. Back home we keep dreaming about our next stay!
