The property

Perfectly located for touring all of Cornwall, but in particular the stunning north coastline, this beautifully-refurbished, old double-fronted character cottage is set up a quiet lane just yards from St. Agnes’ main high street.

As you drive through the village and up the pretty lane to park in the garage, just a two-minute walk from the cottage, you begin to realise just how little has changed here over the years.

As you enter the cottage you will immediately feel at home and sense the character of the cottage, with the woodburner and old stone fireplace, and appreciate the quality of the stylish refurbishment.

Downstairs is all open plan, with a cosy sitting area, complete with a leather chesterfield, and a well-equipped kitchen with dining area.

Up the stairs is where you will find the two bedrooms and bathroom.

Outside, just a few yards away towards the rear of the property, is a delightful private courtyard with a table and chairs, a coal barbecue, four eco-energy wall lights and a heated lamp, enabling you to continue alfresco dining in comfort, even when it gets a bit chillier in the evening.

St. Agnes proudly sits in both a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a World Heritage Site.

A combination of beautiful beaches, independent shops, and some of the best pubs, restaurants and bistros to be found in Cornwall makes St. Agnes a choice destination for the most discerning travellers.

Add to this the fact that the area is home to some of the best and most dramatic walks along the entire South West Coast Path and you have the perfect location for a holiday, whatever time of year.
