  • "The property at 21 British Road, St."

    Agnes has great 19th century character, with original features and retro-contemporary decor. It was conveniently located for access to nearby Chapel Porth beach and the surrounding, dramatic coastal landscape, amenities in the village centre and to the main routes out towards Truro and the scenic Roseland peninsular on the south coast. Overall, we had an enjoyable stay here. However, there were a few shortcomings. Despite the generous offer of Prosecco on arrival, there was NO WELCOME BOOK with any guides and instructions as is normally provided in holiday let accommodation. As I am not familiar with the Nest smart heating system, we found it difficult to control the central heating. There was no advice on the disposal and recycling of rubbish. NO BEDSIDE LAMP provided - due to no nearby wall socket - in the main ‘poster bed’ bedroom, where my elderly mother slept - I had to use the floor lamp from the lounge! Car parking was a real, inconvenient hassle every day - having to constantly walk up and down the steep, one way street hill / road with bags etc. with vehicles constantly driving round the bend as there was never a space available opposite the house - having to drive round the block all the time! Constant thoroughfare traffic made it a relatively noisy environment offering little incentive to sit outside in the pleasant front courtyard. We had a great time away in this region of Cornwall yet the points raised above made our experience not as relaxing as it should have been.

  • "21 British Rd is a lovely house perfectly situated for the beach, bars and restaurants, however, the were several things that were disappointing."

    Accommodation for 9 would suggest there would be more than one car (we had 3) but parking was extremely difficult as there are no designated spaces for the property. There was no obvious recycling bins which meant everything had to go into general rubbish which is not something we should be doing in this day an age. A tumble dryer would have been very much appreciated and finally the mattresses were extraordinarily uncomfortable leaving a number of guests with a poor nights sleep.

  • "Lovely, beautifully equipped house."

    The only thing lacking, as far as we were concerned, was a tumble dryer for all those damp beach towels and a coffee machine. Otherwise gorgeous.

  • "We had a great time and the location was fantastic."

    There were a few minor things we came across - toilet seats need either replacing or tightening as they move. There were only 4 wine glasses in a house that slept 9.

The property

Nestled in the heart of St Agnes, 21 British Road is the answer to your Cornish cottage dreams, offering a central spot near to beaches and amenities.

Suited to a large family of nine or a group of friends looking to kick back on the beach, this property boasts four bedrooms, and dates from the 19th century.

Take in the picturesque exterior before stepping in to discover the beautiful and contemporary decor.

The vibrant kitchen/diner will be a favourite space to relax in for all, whether it's sitting at the long wooden table atop the bright green chairs tucking into breakfast, excited for the day to come, or perched at the breakfast bar while dinner simmers on the hob.

An amply-equipped kitchen space is host to an electric oven and hob, fridge, and microwave, among others meaning you have all you need to rustle up some delicious dishes.

Settle down for the evening in the delightful sitting room where a TV can offer some entertainment, or sit in here for a quiet moment snuggled up with a book on the sofa.

When you're in need of rest, head upstairs and find two sleeping spots on the first floor, including a triple room with a bunk bed and two singles, perfect for the children, and a lovely double bedroom with a fabulous four-poster bed, both served by a spacious bathroom with a bath and separate walk-in shower for freshening up.

Continue up to the second floor to find the remaining two bedrooms, including a double with a delightful Juliet balcony, and a super-king-size bedroom, with this floor home to a bathroom as well.

Enjoy drinks outside on the patio in the evening sunshine or wake up to breakfast alfresco while your four-legged friend stretches their legs.

For beach day you have several places to choose from; Trevaunance Cove is closest and is St Agnes' main beach, great for paddling and exploring the rock-pools teaming with life, with Chapel Porth just a litter further down, but it's worth the distance as it's one of Cornwall's most beautiful coves.

Enjoy an adventure on the water with Koru Kayaking, setting off from Trevaunance Cove, you can be guided along a two-hour kayaking journey for some unforgettable holiday memories, and stunning scenery.

No trip to Cornwall would be right without a bit of surfing if the weather is on your side, so get out on a board and whilst St Agnes is one of the areas known for experienced surfers, there are still many surf schools in the area for complete beginners.

The South West Coast Path provides a fabulous way to explore with well-marked paths and villages with pubs and shops scattered along the way for any necessary pit-stops.

St Agnes Heritage Coast offers some beautiful landscapes to ramble through, with the St Agnes Beacon offering a great viewing point for far reaching vistas.

Spend quality time with loved ones in this historic mining village, at 21 British Road.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.
