The much sought-after village of St Agnes is a truly magical place for a Cornish holiday and here deep in the heart you will find No 2 Water Lane, a traditional semi-detached Victorian home. Located just a short stroll from the beautiful beach of Trevaunance Cove, No 2 Water Lane is located down a little windy lane opposite a babbling stream and a getaway here will be a delight for you, your family or perhaps a group of friends looking for the ultimate coastal idyll.
Arrive and take three steps up to the entrance, step over the threshold and you will instantly feel at home. Enter the sitting-room and an oasis of calm and tranquility awaits. Exposed pine floors and comfy sofas invite you to relax and unwind and in cooler months the wood-burner will keep you warm and toasty. This charming room has a feature bay window and classic high ceilings, the perfect place to unwind after a busy beach day.
The ground floor kitchen/diner is furnished with oodles of units, worktops, and white Mediterranean walls. Fully equipped with an oil fired Rayburn, oven, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, there will be no squabbling over the washing up here. It is said the kitchen is the heart of the home, and No 2 Water Lane is no exception. Everyone can meet around the farmhouse kitchen table and chat about the day's adventures, the perfect sociable gathering! You will also find a handy utility with a washing machine in situ and this leads into the family bathroom.
Climb the stairs (don't miss the beautiful stained-glass window) to the first floor where two bedrooms await, all with quality linens for a great night's sleep. Bedroom one has a king bed and bedroom two has a super comfy double with a lovely outlook over the gardens and terrace, a little cloakroom completes this floor.
Up another flight of stairs (which are narrow, steep, and stepped as you arrive onto the landing so, please take care) to the second floor and you will find the twin bedroom, this room is perfect for younger guests (due to the low eaves). It also has a very neat shower-room which due to the height restriction is only recommended for children.
Outside continues to delight! Head up the steps (thirteen in all) to find the decked patio area, a fabulous place to sit back, relax and unwind under the Cornish sunshine (children must be supervised in this area).
Al fresco dining comes into its own here, from your first cup of early morning coffee to an aperitif under the stars. The lawned area at the top of the garden is perfect for the children to play in, as it is totally enclosed. Whether you are looking for an out-of-season Cornish getaway or a family beach holiday in the summer sun, No 2 Water Lane is a unique abode where holiday memories to last a lifetime will be made.
If you don't fancy cooking, and why not you are on holiday after all, then you have plenty of rather lovely places to dine in just moments away. The Peterville Inn is a fabulous gastropub and has a huge menu, which is sure to please everyone. Opposite this lovely pub you have The Taphouse. Laid back, very chilled and home to wonderful vegetarian dishes alongside fresh seafood and local meats. The Taphouse also has a rather impressive gin list- 80 in total! They are sure to have something to wet your whistle.
The north Cornwall coast has all the ingredients needed for a great holiday with secret coves, sandy surfing beaches, quaint fishing villages and historic landmarks all in abundance. If you do decide to travel further afield, more delights are just around the coast. Why not head to Port Isaac, home of Doc Martin and sea shanty singers Fishermen's Friends, or perhaps travel inland towards the mighty biomes of the Eden Project or The Lost Gardens of Heligan, lost in time during WWI and restored to their former glory 30 years ago. Foodies should head for Padstow, home of Rick Stein, Paul Ainsworth and Nathan Outlaw, all respected chefs bringing their skills to this beautiful part of the world. If you fancy a home-cooked meal look out for the many farm shops and roadside stalls where you can buy the freshest of produce to create a holiday feast. However you plan to spend your blissful holiday time just remember one important rule, jam before cream on your scone in Cornwall!
