The cottages date from the early 1700s and were built to provide lodgings for the Harbour Master and to house the trade that the harbour generated. The cottages remained central to this trade until the final demise of the Harbour in the early 1900s.
The three comfortable and well-equipped holiday cottages are ideally positioned in the heart of a magnificent and popular cove. All have uninterrupted sea views and the sound of the surf drifts up from the beach at night like Mendelssohn’s Fingal’s Cave.
A family business
We are a family business, and living by the cottages enables us to oversee regular maintenance. We are constantly adding and improving facilities for our guests. All of the holiday cottages are on a private road overlooking the beach, with stunning views of the sea, cliffs and coastline. Across the road, steps lead down to the sandy beach of Trevaunance Cove with its rock pools and remains of the old harbour of St Agnes. Our summer flower displays and spectacular views even appear on local postcards of St Agnes!
