Hidden away in a stunning and unspoilt section of the north Cornish coast, St Agnes (or Breanek as it is sometimes known) nestles within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and well as a World Heritage Site.
St Agnes in CornwallSt Agnes consists of two parts; the compact little village at the top, with its trendy hangouts and clusters of Cornish cottages, and then the stunning golden beach formally known as Trevaunance Cove. Add into the mix trickling streams, a stunning stretch of the Cornwall coastpath and excellent surf, and it’s easy to see what St Agnes is such a sought-after destination for visitors and Cornish residents alike. The medley of natural beauty and colorful culture combine to make a haven for artists, designers and song-writers amongst the hordes of visitors who make the trip here throughout the year.
Luxury Beach Holidays in St AgnesThe Celtic kingdom of Cornwall (or Kernow if you want to get really Cornish) has long been one of the UK’s top holiday destinations, and the north Coast in particular is popular with those who visit the peninsular for beautiful beaches and consistent surf. St Agnes was once center to the county’s mining industry along with Chapel Porth, and today you can still find remnants of the old engine houses perched proudly on the cliff top. Explore Poldark’s hauntingly beautiful filming locations whilst staying in St Agnes; the area just over the hill was used to represent the Nampara Valley (part of Ross Poldark’s family estate). With the coast path on the doorstep, a ramble to towards Chapel Porth is a must. Pass vibrant banks of heather, ferns and golden gorse on this spectacular stretch of coastline bordering the ocean for a luxury Cornish beach break to write home about.
