  • "We loved our stay at 18 British Road."

    The cottage is beautifully renovated and characterful. It is within easy walking distance to all of St Agnes' amenities including the local beach, Trevaunance Cove. St. Agnes is a favourite of ours and is a great base to explore the wonderful Cornish coastline.

  • "As the tiny front garden was the only place to sit outside it was disappointing that it was untidy and only had seating for 4 although accommodation for 6."

    Also the hot water flow was extremely slow.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have taken the comments on board and will be getting additional seating for the front garden. The water flow has been an intermittent issue that we have been in touch with the water company who is fixing this problem. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful area of Cornwall, beach a 15 min walk away (toilets, bars and places to eat at the beach)."

    I went alone with my 2 children and would say St Agnus may be better suited to couples due to the bars and restaurants in the village seeming busy and a bit lively on a night but the cottage had good facilities so we could cook and invited others round and there were plenty of crockery and glasses to entertain. Parking was a bit difficult but I usually got a space on the road 5- 10 mins away and there is is free car park at the top of the road in the village which I needed to use once. I could not find the instructions for the hob and after a quick google discovered it required the pan to be in situ to come on. No iron- thought there was supposed to be one but I may be wrong. Who wants to iron on holiday anyway! Overall a lovely holiday cottage and would be happy to go again.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. A new iron and ironing board have been purchased for the property so thank you for mentioning this. We are so please you enjoyed your holiday, and would love to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "The shower is very poor which is very disappointing, the water barely trickles out and is not sufficient for a family of four."

    Given the price of the cottage this is really not acceptable. Having seen the vast increase in the price you have made for next year I feel sorry for those people who have booked unless this is resolved. The toilet cistern has a fault which means that it intermittently runs after the flush which is irritating during the night, when the house is quiet. The downstairs WC has significant damp which causes water to run out of the back wall. For the price, and considering the fact that there are no drying facilities, I believe the property should have an Iron. The kitchen lacks storage and, given the wall space, an extra couple of units should be added.

  • "Only problem with this property was parking."

    It is on a busy one way fairly steep street. There are spaces on the street, but there are some yellow lines reducing the number. Spaces fill up quickly and although there is a free (donations to local council suggested) car park just to the left of the steep hill, some people including us find the walk up the to reach the car a bit difficult. Not sure if the information mentioned an iron or ironing board being available we didn’t see one and would have found it useful.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. The information on the listing says: Loading/unloading available outside cottage. Roadside parking nearby on first come, first served basis and public car park close by. Our Reservations team are always happy to assist with any mobility/ access queries prior to making your reservation. There was not an iron or ironing board previously described on the property description for 18 British Road but there are plans to get these in place later in August. Property Owner

  • "British Road is a great house, lovely spacious rooms for the family, very comfortable with good quality home furnishings and items throughout."

    Great location for the town and cove, St. Agnes is a great place to explore the local area or further afield

  • "The listing mentioned both an outdoor BBQ and logs for the woodburner, neither of which were provided."

    I enquired about this during our stay but never received a response or an apology. If these items are not to be provided, information related to them should have been updated in both the online listing and folder in the property. In addition, we were instructed to leave bins out for collection on the Friday but they were not collected then. The day of bin collection should also be updated.

    Thank you for taking the time to bring these issues to our attention, we take feedback very seriously. Please accept our apologies for the missing barbeque and logs, this has now been addressed with our housekeeping team. We do not have a record of you contacting us during your stay, as we would have endeavoured to rectify any problems straight away. Notwithstanding, we hope you enjoyed your stay at 18 British Road.

  • "We enjoyed a lovely holiday at 18 British Road in April - our second stay in the past year."

    The house itself has been beautifully renovated and is both very comfortable and stylish and had everything we needed as a family of four. St Agnes is a lovely village with good pubs and cafes and a great beach which is perfect for exploring with kids. It's also really well positioned for visiting other beaches and towns nearby - Porthowan is just a short drive - or a longer cliff top walk - away. We had another lovely stay and hope to be back again soon!

  • "Beautiful cottage in superb location, close to two restaurants/pubs and not far from the shops and beach."

    More spacious than it looks from outside. Really appreciated the welcoming scones, jam and clotted cream. Lovely treat. Spotlessly clean with plenty of hand sanitiser around. Beautiful, spacious bathroom - loved the tiles! A beautiful stylish cottage in an excellent location.

  • "There was no tin opener in the kitchen, so we had to buy one."

    Luckily they had one in the shop. There was no signal on the TV in the dining area.

The popular coastal town of Newquay, considered to be the surfing capital of the UK, as well as a host of other fantastic beaches along the north Cornwall coast, including Perranporth, Crantock and Fistral are within easy reach.

Cornwall's only city, Truro, is a short drive away, with its Victorian Gothic cathedral that overlooks the river, while renowned attractions of Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are an easy car journey away.
