St. Agnes offers the perfect environment for a holiday in Cornwall. Safe and friendly with plenty to explore in a relatively compact area.
We are particularly suited to those familise that like the great outdoors, with body-boarding, cycling, skating, rock-pooling and woodland walks all available.
For older kids or rainy days, larger indoor and themed attractions are only a short drive or bus-rde away when you fancy a day-trip.
But instead of taking our word for it, hear what some local children of varying ages told us they like to do in and around St. Agnes:
“The skate park at Mount Hawke is pretty amazing, I go there to practice most weeks and sometimes they have films on in the evenings. Apart from that, I surf a lot with my friends and sometimes grab a milkshake in St. Agnes - the beaches around here are great”
“Sometimes me and my family go for long walks with the dog up to the Beacon and it's great because you can see for miles and miles. I like all the events that happen like the Bolster Festival with the big giant, and when they turn on the Christmas lights”
“I like the swings at the beach playground, and picnics with my family. Sometimes we go rock-pooling and find lots of little creatures like crabs. We put them in our bucket, but they always go back when we leave”
We love dogs and the parish is one of the best areas in the country to visit with your pets.
Wherever you see the yellow dog icon on this site you’ll know that your four-legged friends will be welcome.
The glorious South West coast path passes straight through St. Agnes, and is the perfect place for a stomp, but please take good care when walking with your dog. The SWCP site has a good guide to making sure you all have a good day out.
St. Agnes Beacon, which is owned by the National Trust, is a great place to walk dogs any time of year.
Please note: It can get very hot in Cornwall in the summer, and dogs can quickly get into trouble if left in hot cars. Please don’t EVER leave your dog in your car while you go to the beach or pop to the shops – there is almost always somewhere to tie them up outside, with a water bowl to keep them cool.
