This gorgeous contemporary cottage is set in the heart of thriving St Agnes, tucked into an unexpectedly secluded spot along the Owner’s private lane. Superb quality and attention to detail make 2 Rocks an absolute delight, beautifully presented and incorporating contemporary design with oak floors, plantation shutters, drench head showers and luxurious linens and soft furnishings. Outside things are perfect too: step across the private lane to a sheltered courtyard bordered with exotic tropical plants, the perfect place for evening meals sitting below star-strewn skies. There’s a storage room for wetsuits and surf boards, and most unexpectedly of all, a garden with a fire-pit, looking out over a tree-lined paddock, all hidden away from the bustle of village life and solely for guests’ use. With beaches and coastal footpaths just minutes away, this is the perfect base for enjoying all the local area has to offer.
Set behind the main street that meanders through the thriving coastal village of St Agnes, semi-detached 2 Rocks is just perfect for those who like to step out into village life when the mood suits and retreat back to the wonderful peace and tranquility of the unexpectedly secluded setting. The ground floor has an entrance lobby for leads and walking boots, a useful utility-room and a welcoming open plan living-room. Soft leather seating piled with cushions and throws is set before a warming wood-burner and a fully fitted Shaker-style kitchen incorporates everything you’ll need for easy holiday catering. Upstairs, both bedrooms have super-king size beds (one can be split into twin beds if required), wonderful linens and en suite shower-rooms with tall heated towel rails and drench-head showers, and each looks out over garden or field. Decorated in soothing neutral colours, this is a wonderfully restful place and the Owner’s environmental credentials are recognised with a gold award by Green Tourism. Outside, the decked courtyard is across the lane (only used by the Owner), enclosed by high fencing and planted with sub-tropical plants, offering a wonderfully sheltered setting and perfect for evening drinks and star gazing. A gate leads from here to the large, tucked away garden, where you can sit in the dappled shade of mature trees and look out over the Owner’s paddock by day or cosy up around the fire-pit at night. This is a truly special place, a little piece of rural tranquility in the middle of a thriving village. St Agnes is a friendly and welcoming village with award-winning eateries, village pubs, galleries and shops galore, with renowned surfing beaches at Trevaunance Cove and Chapel Porth and spectacular coastal footpaths. Walking to the beach takes just fifteen minutes and all the village amenities are on the doorstep, perfect for popping out for fresh morning croissants, lunchtime pasties or a leisurely evening meal. This is a beautiful part of Cornwall to explore, its dramatic coastline dotted with tumbledown mine buildings, relics of Cornwall’s tin mining industry (and scene of many a Poldark episode!). There are four superb sandy surfing beaches within five miles and surfboard tuition and hire available locally for those who'd like to venture into the waves, with beachside bistros and cafes for those who prefer to keep their feet dry. 2 Rocks is truly the perfect holiday destination and with full central heating and the easy-to-use wood-burner making this cottage as warm and cosy in winter as it is in summer, storm-watching and blustery winter beach walks are as inviting as summer holiday sandcastle-building (those booking at Christmas are welcomed with a superb hamper full of locally-sourced goodies). Parking is available in the village car park just 400 yards away (free, although an honesty box is available for donations) although cars can pull up outside the cottage to drop off and collect luggage.
