A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

St Agnes

St Agnes lies in the heart of Cornwall’s mining heritage; all along the coast here you’ll see old mining engine houses rising from the cliffs. The steep and narrow streets here are lined with almost unbearably quaint, higgledy-piggledy cottages.

Perfect local village

Has everything you could need, great Pop up Thai restaurant on beach road (wed and sat) pizzeria very good. Everything is in walking distance. Bakery is amazing - don’t miss out on the sausage rolls! Beach is fab for surfing, belly boarding, rock pooling! Highly recommend this little chill out zone!

Beautiful little town.

A beautiful town with very friendly people, great fish and chips and perfect location for accessing the nearby beach.
Especially recommend the lovely ladies in the flower shop.
