St Agnes in Cornwall

Tall rugged cliffs, the brilliant blue sea, a pretty pebbly beach, turtles, sunfish, porpoises, dolphins, sea-gulls, wild flowers and warm, friendly people – all call the picturesque village of St. Agnes - Home.

Trevaunance Cove
Trevaunance Cove, with its gentle shingle beach, sits just a little way from the village. This was site of the old St. Agnes harbour. Its ideal for fishing and snorkelling. And its little rock pools, smooth pebbles and unexplored caves is sure to delight children and adults alike. Novice surfers can enjoy the friendly waves; and sometimes dolphins and seals may decide to join in on the fun! And be sure to be there around sun-set...the glorious spectacle of the sanguine setting sun will stay with you for a long time...

St. Agnes Beacon
You can enjoy a lovely walk to the St Agnes Beacon. Plenty of scampering wild rabbits, crying sea-gulls and colorful flittering butterflies will greet you. You can also enjoy the efflorescence of wild flowers blossoming defiantly amongst the grey rocks.
A long time ago, fires were lit on the Beacon to alert the villagers of impending dangers. In the sixteenth century, the Beacon was also a part of the link-line of warning fires that communicated news of the approaching Armada. The vista from the St. Agnes Beacon is spectacular. The panorama of sea, sky, cliffs and village is definitely arresting!

St. Agnes Parish Museum
St. Agnes was originally a mining and fishing community. At the St. Agnes Parish Museum you can relive the lifestyle, culture and traditions of the Cornish tin & copper miners and fishing folk. The museum is also a “natural history display” – a wonderful collection of films, photographs and specimens to help you get familiar with the local landscape. You can also get to meet their star attraction - a 700lb leatherback turtle!

Stippy Stappy
Take a walk inside the village and a lovely sight will meet you. Youll see a row of quaint old cottages standing beside each other on a cobbled slope. This steep terrace of beautiful brown-stoned cottages goes by the delightful name of Stippy Stappy. Be sure to visit them. Youll be charmed...
