About Keith Busby
We moved to Cornwall in 2002 seeking a better work-life balance and we have certainly found it. We still enjoy everything Cornwall has to offer and make sure we walk every day on the beautiful cliff paths and beaches with our dogs, Ruan and Eric
Keith Busby purchased this House in 2002
Why Keith Busby chose Saint Agnes
We moved from a stone cottage on the Pennines with great views over the Yorkshire moors, near Hebden Bridge. We felt immediately at home in St Agnes and chanced upon a house and annexe with equally stunning views along the coast. A radical rebuild created a light filled house, making the most of the panorama.
What makes this House unique
In 2012 we renovated the Little Hive to the same high standard as the main house, while retaining its cottage atmosphere. The living rooms, bedroom and kitchen all enjoy the panoramic views along the coast, as does the patio where guests can eat or relax overlooking the garden. The Little Hive is light during the day, and cosy with a log fire in the evening. The furnishings and original art works have delighted our guests so far. We hope that you will enjoy living here for a week or two as much as we do all year round.

A very cosy comfortable cottage, stunning views and lovely location, plenty of places to visit and amazing walks. All in all a great holiday many thanks Louise and Keith.
Extremely well kept cottage with everything you need, Home from home and was nice to meet Keith and Louise to welcome us. Best views we have seen from a cottage ever.
Quality proprty, furnishings and stunning views
Beautifully decorated property which is much larger than we anticipated. Lovely fluffy towels, quality bed linen and a lovely welcome by Keith and Louise. Set back a bit from town, I would recommend the walk through the fields/footpath for agile guests, otherwise you will need your transport. A wonderful, romantic 'hive -away' for couples. We will return.
Exceeded our expectations.
Excellent in all areas. Louise and Keith were excellent hosts. It was a privilege to stay at Little Hive
Perfect spot for a couple to enjoy nature, walking and the Cornish coast.
We loved the Little Hive, perfect size, spotlessly clean and lovely very helpful hosts. We would be very happy to, and look forward to, returning again in the future.
Little Hive Cottage, St. Agnes, Cornwall. An absolute delight.
We have just returned from one of those rare holidays where everything was just perfect and we did not want to leave our little cottage, (not OUR cottage obviously), but by the end of the week it really felt like it as it was so comfortable.
Keith and Louise were charming, helpful and set high standards of comfort and cleanliness. They were very unobtrusive during our stay but you always new they were never far away if any problems had arisen.
We have told our friends of this holiday property and hope they give it a try soon. They will not be disappointed.
Thank you Keith and Louise, we had the best of times.

Trevaunance Cove is about a 20 min walk away and the National Trust beach at Chapel Porth is a little further. Both beaches have car parks and are just a few minutes drive from the Little Hive. The north coast is rugged with spectacular cliffs and has numerous coves and beaches each with their own character, many are surfing beaches. The south coast is easily reached by car and is a popular watersports area.
The nearest rail station is at Truro (9 miles) and the nearest airport is at Newquay (12 miles). There is a bus service to the village but use of a car is recommended. Even without transport there is enough interest to keep you busy within walking distance.
