Self Catering in and around St Agnes
Located on Cornwall’s north coast, St Agnes sits in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is a popular spot for tourists who enjoy the rugged landscape and sheltered beach.
The dramatic coastline and breathtaking scenery includes the stunning Chapel Porth Beach and St Agnes Beacon, the hill that looms high over the village and the coast.
St. Agnes is a picturesque village on the north coast of Cornwall. Steeped in mining history, the village still retains a traditional friendly Cornish atmosphere and makes a wonderful base for your holiday, being an ideal location for touring the rest of Cornwall.
There's a thriving community with a choice of shops, galleries and craft workshops, plus friendly cafes and bars serving good food and drink in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
The remains of mines can be seen all over the St Agnes area and are now part of Cornwall’s Mining World Heritage area. St Agnes featured heavily in Winston Graham’s original Poldark series of novels, and it's easy to see why when you travel around the area.
