Tucked into a stunning and unspoilt spot on the north Cornish coast, St. Agnes sits in both a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a World Heritage Site.

Our compact little village has a thriving and creative local community which supports lots of independent shops and businesses. Add beautiful, dog-friendly beaches, world-class pubs and restaurants, and access to some of the county's most stunning coast path and walks, it's not hard to see why we're so proud of where we live.

The wider area encompasses the sandy Blue Flag beach of Porthtowan, a hit with surfers and swimmers and from the top of the St Agnes Beacon you can see for miles around.  The National Trust owned Wheal Coates evokes the mining heritage of our past and from here on a clear day you can see right across the sea to St Ives. In late summer swathes of purple and yellow cover the coast path in a blanket of heather and gorse and on a warm September evening there is no better place to be. 

And for those fans of Ross Poldark, Winston Graham lived just down the road and used whole Parish as the inspiration for his Poldark series of books, dubbing it 'Poldark Country'.

If you're here for a holiday, or thinking about it, there's lots here to discover. Take a look around and see for yourself what the St. Agnes area has to offer all year round.  The directory will take you to outdoor activitiy providers, artists and designers, and local places of interest to help you plan your visit.
