  • "We had a fantastic stay, the location was absolutely ideal for what we wanted."

    St Agnes is beautiful and the dogs had the time of their lives! Had a smashing Sunday roast from the pub near the beach and some great food all week. Really enjoyed our stay!

  • "Amazing house."

    Can’t fault a thing. Simon (landlord) even hand-delivered bottled water when half of Cornwall had a water mains crisis. Will absolutely recommend to friends, and will definitely be returning!

  • "We took a lot of items with us that we didn't need to as they were provided, dog beds (1 large, 1 Medium), Dog bowls, a Hairdryer with a diffuser, etc."

    It would've saved us a bit of space had they been listed. We were a little disappointed that the lounge deck had the table and chairs rather than the comfy seating as in the photo, but then the weather wasn't great so it didn't matter too much. An outdoor heater on the deck would've been nice. There is no denying that the property is stunning and St Agnes is lovely, lots of places to eat & drink all within walking distance, although it is a steep trek back from the beach. All of the staff were very friendly and accomodating of our dogs. The coast path was only a few hundred yards away along a quiet road, our dogs loved it. 2 fantastic beaches quite close, my favourite being Gwithian near Hayle and Perranporth in the other direction.

  • "The cottage is wonderful and in a great location, we had a brilliant week."

    We were so impressed with the cleanliness when we arrived - it felt like we were moving into a brand new home. The upstairs living area is a great space to hangout and having 3 balconies/patio spaces meant we could get some sun no matter what time of day it was. It’s the nicest cottage we’ve ever stayed at, we will be back!

    We wanted for nothing.

  • "The house is amazing, stylish, clean well located."

    The town is great , located to see all areas of Cornwall. The only criticism was that we booked the break during lockdown thinking that it had a games room, with pictures showing the content of the games room. However whilst travelling to the destination an email was received saying that due to the pandemic a lot of soft furnishings would be missing Turning up the games room had nothing in so my daughter who we had taken very little to entertain her with was very disappointed. Pictures and information could have been updated prior to booking

  • "Beautiful house ."

    All mod cons. Great for walking the coast path. Good pub and bakery and pizza

  • "The house is gorgeous - modern clean and with every facility you could want."

    We loved the upside down living which allows you to sit upstairs on the roof outside the kitchen. The photos don’t show it but there is also a more private outdoor seating area to the rear with a bbq. We loved St Agnes which is smaller enough to be a village and not attract hordes of tourists but large enough to have 2 bakeries, a pizzeria, lovely restaurant Taste, a number of coffee shops and pubs both in the upper and lower parts of the village as well as a pub and bar at the Cove which reveals a beach when the tide is out. We would recommend the Driftwood Spars down at the beach for a pub pub (steep walking back), Tap House for ambience, Railway for sport watching and The St Agnes Hotel for being good overall
