About Elizabeth Adams

We bought the property in 2001. At the time our 4 children ranged from age 2 - 6, so it was a way of getting out of the city at weekends and holidays and spending time by the sea.

Why Elizabeth Adams chose Saint Agnes

We love Cornwall for its rugged scenery, fantastic beaches and great walks. The cottage has a long history; it was used by tin miners back in the 19th century.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is in a great location in St Agnes so close to shops, pubs and restaurants, while being very close to some great beaches - Trevaunance, Chapel Port and Porthtowan. It is easy to get to many different places in Cornwall, from Falmouth, to Penzance, Helston and Padstow so there is always plenty to do and see.

Lovely cottage with huge garden for the kids in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 10 nights and it was great for us and our 4 children (plus one small

baby) the garden was huge and the children spent hours playing in it. St Agnes is a lovely place to stay, great shops and a brilliant beach. Would highly recommend

Spacious but cosy, walking distance to shops and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We arrived during Storm Brian and immediately felt so much at home that we hoped the weather would not get better too quickly so that we would have an excuse not to leave the cottage! Found everything clean and comfortable with good quality appliances and plenty of space for the children and our dog inside and out in the amazing garden, which is the size of a park rather than a cottage garden! Children's framed drawings on the walls and other mementos show that this is a well-loved home from home - and we left with happy memories, too!

Relaxed and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfect for a holiday stay. We waked the coastal path, visited old haunts, met old friends. Got wet and dry again. Hail stones and sunshine. A lovely restful stay and lots to do and eat in St Agnes. What a lovely place altogether.

Comfortable, clean, well-equipped cottage with a lovely Cornish, traditional feel. Amazing gardens that seem to go on for ever. Well located for an easy walk into St Agnes and with good access to the surrounding area.
