St Agnes is a popular and picturesque, north coast village just 9 miles from Truro and 5 miles from Redruth, the village itself was originally based around the mining of tin, copper and arsenic which started in prehistoric times and continued until the 20th century, other local industries are farming and fishing but more recently tourism has risen to the fore. There have been several attempts to build a harbour in St Agnes, the most recent succumbed to a storm in 1915-16, however the glorious sandy beaches more than compensate. The village offers many restaurants, pubs, cafes and take aways (Pizza, Chinese, Indian, Fish & Chips etc) There are also plenty of small galleries as well as a free museum on the outskirts. The village also has a supermarket, butchers, post office, bank, bakers, chemist, fruit and veg, florist as well as some excellent gift shops.
It is also a walkers heaven being perfectly situated for exploring the coastal paths, the captivating history and the beautiful nearby beaches of Trevaunance Cove and Trevellas Porth at St Agnes, Chapel Porth, and Perranporth. St Agnes Beacon is a 328 foot climb, and on a fine day you can see from coast to coast. The view is spectacular and well worth the climb.
The North Coast contains the best beaches for surfing, Perranporth and Porthtowan are a short drive away and both provide equipment hire. Wheal Coates tin mine, near Chapel Porth is a prominent feature of the North Coast and is the beginning of a trail that continues past many other mining works down to Trevellas, the last tin production site in Cornwall.
Redruth and Camborne, to the south, are at the centre of Cornwall's traditional industrial heritage. To celebrate this, a new free visitor attraction called "Heartlands Cornwall" has been recently completed just off the A30 in Pool (between Redruth and Camborne). This is the UK's first cultural playground and includes a huge adventure playground made out of timber, including the custom-made "giants trap" which lives up to the legend of Bolster, a local giant, who fell head over heels for a St Agnes maid. Art studios and galleries regularly display pieces by local and national artists. There are wild botanical gardens, world heritage site exhibitions, a visitor centre and regular markets with local produce. To the south west, following the A30, Mount's Bay opens up before you with St Michael's Mount and then on past Penzance to the wild and rugged extremes of Land's End and Cape Cornwall. The open air Minack theatre is just the other side of Penzance and offers a truly stunning and surreal venue to take in a production; full details are on their website.

We had originally booked the bungalow as we were going to go walking on the coast path, but unfortunately my mum had a serious car accident a month before we went so our walking plans were ruined, however Meadow Vean was ideal for her recuperation, it was quietly located, spotlessly clean, had everything we needed and was convenient to visit places daily.
Guest from Liversedge stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely welcome cream tea and a guided tour of the cottage by the owner's tortoise-shell cat ;-) The cottage was perfectly equipped and so tastefully furnished, and every need and comfort thought of. St Agnes is a beautiful place to stay and Meadow Vean is only a short walk from the centre and wonderful sandy beaches and clear seas are so close. The owners were very friendly and checked to see all was well the next day as we arrived in the evening. A perfect holiday and weished we had booked a fortnight. We booked this only three weeks before and were lucky to find a week free that fitted in with us. I would have chosen this property even if it had not been one of half a dozen left. I have not used Cornwalls Cottages before but will definitely use them next time we come to Cornwall. Excellent service, thank you. Happy customers here ;-)
