Saint Agnes Removals
Located on the north coast of Cornwall is the beautiful village of Saint Agnes, which is both a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. What the village lacks in size, it makes up for in community, and the streets are thriving with independent shops and businesses. With beautiful scenery, unspoilt beaches, second-to-none pubs and restaurants, and stunning coastal paths, it is not hard to understand why the citizens of Saint Agnes are so happy living there.
The Britannia Lanes of Cornwall office is located just 14 minutes from Saint Agnes, in Truro. Not only can they provide you with a bespoke removals service, they also offer a variety of storage solutions to suit you.
Moving to Saint Agnes
Due to the size of the village, there is never an abundance of properties available on the market at one time. For this reason, it can be best to talk to some local estate agents to keep their eye out for you. Two-bed properties tend to hover between £160,000 and £220,000, whereas three-beds fall between £250,000 and £325,000. Detached homes are upwards of £350,000 and larger or period properties will easily set buyers back over £550,000.
Similarly, rental properties are even harder to come by in Saint Agnes. The majority tend to be flats, or two-bed terraced homes which fetch between £650 pcm and £750 pcm. Larger properties tend to be upwards of £800 pcm.
Beaches in Saint Agnes
There are four beaches near Saint Agnes, spanning from quiet coves to vast expanses of sea and sand. Trevaunce cove sits at the foot of Saint Agnes itself and the buzz from the village and the pubs that overlook the cove make it a fantastic summer retreat. Enjoy an early evening beer, sun yourself on the sandy shore, or take a dip with your surfboard if the waves take your fancy.
Porthtowan beach is your quintessential Cornish family beach; sand and sea as far as the eye can see. It is popular with surfers all year round, and is an ideal place to blow away the cobwebs in the quieter months.
Trevellas Porth is a little-known gem but, with no lifeguard cover, families should keep an eye on children at all times. The stunning waters are popular with snorkelers and you will often find fishermen making the most of the quiet.
Lastly, Chapel Porth is owned and maintained by the National Trust and many flock for the unparalleled walks and café treats.
