Discover St Agnes

About This Project

The Old Goathouse is situated in a peaceful and secluded spot, there are no passing cars or people, yet only 500 metres from a lovely little cove from which, at low tide, you can access St. Agnes beach.

The property is surrounded by fruit trees, wild flower gardens and veg plots. We can provide seasonal organic veg and salad grown just metres from your door.

Electricity and hot water are provided from 100% renewable vegan energy (with mains back-up) making it a great choice for those wishing to reduce their carbon footprint. For those wishing to reduce even further, we offer free pick-ups and drop-offs from Truro railway station, 25 minutes away.

The Old Goathouse was originally a goat house and dairy, then became an artists’ studio. Its contemporary remodelling and character does not detract from its pastoral setting.

Passionate about the environment, Roger and Glen have renovated the property with their strong ethical values in mind, and have cleverly used recycled or upcycled materials where possible.


The interior space is open plan, bright and airy, and very carefully thought out. The sitting room at the far end boasts a log fire with warming oven, a cosy settee for 2 to curl up on.

There is a TV and wi-fi.

The bathroom is a large fully tiled wet-room with power shower, towels, bathrobes and organic shower lotion provided.

The kitchen has a gas cooker with hob and oven, toaster, fridge and kettle, and all the gadgets you are likely to need.

The mezzanine sleeping area above the kitchen is accessed via a sturdy set of stairs, all bedding included. The gable-end window provides uninterrupted views down the valley.


Peaceful and secluded, with a covered decking area leading to a south facing sun-trap, cable drum table and chairs, a separate wild flower bed and lawn with fire-pit/BBQ. There is a lovely old bench in the top paddock, carefully placed to catch the last rays of the sun, its just you and nature, an ideal place for reading or sipping your favourite tipple.

If it’s a relaxing break you are seeking, you will not find a nicer spot. A wonderful 25 minute walk, or 5 minute drive to the village or the Driftwood Spars pub, yet cloaked in peace and quiet when you return.

We also include a breakfast basket with homemade organic bread, homemade jams, local honey, plant based milk and organic spread, tea and ground coffee.
