St. Agnes in General
Advantages: Stunning scenery, lovely beaches, pretty shops, great pubs
I have been on holiday to St Agnes every since I was just 3 weeks old! Both my parents families holidayed here, and my parents met her, so naturally we have carried on. Nearly 30 years on, I now go with my own family and also have a group of friends who join us.
We now go for the Bank Holiday Weekend at the end of August, and meet up with other family and friends who travel down at the same time. Previously I stayed on the Caravan Club site, but now we camp at Beacon Cottage Farm, just down the road.
The campsite is in a stunning setting, with wonderful views over the North Cornish coastline, and amazing sunsets if you are lucky with the weather.
There are a number of local beaches, we tend to go to Chapel Porth which is a fairly small beach although much bigger when the tide goes out and you can walk around the headlands either side of the bay. In St Agnes itself is Trevaunance Cove which is a
lovely pebbly beach at the bottom end of the village.
The are plenty of pubs and places to eat. The Driftwood is a great pub which serves nice food, just up from Trevaunance Cove, and very dog friendly. There is a cafe/restaurant overlooking the cove where I have eaten both lunch and dinner, lovely food and a stunning view. Up in the village itself is Sally's bistro where I have had another delightful meal, it is only small so worth booking in advance in busy holiday periods.
The village has a number of shops- post office, mini supermarket etc- and a great fish and chip shop which gets very busy on the Friday evening of Bank Holiday weekend! There are also a few shops selling surf gear, and a lovely shop in the village (I can't remember the name) which has paintings, craft items and lovely jewellery.
This place is very close to my heart, and I will continue to visit it every summer for as long as I can. It is well worth a visit, whether for surfing, walking on the coast path, or lying on a beach.
Summary: A wonderful place to visit
