This delightful early 19th century semi-detached cottage has been sensitively and stylishly renovated to retain its Cornish character and charm. With beamed ceilings and a wood burner in the sitting room, Pen Mor is a cosy and comfortable cottage throughout the year.
The entrance is through the conservatory into the kitchen, which overlooks the lovely rear garden and beautiful countryside aspect. A spacious kitchen/diner is equipped with electric cooker and hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, and a pine table and chairs to seat four. A comfortable sitting room is furnished with two sofas, TV, DVD player and contemporary wood burner.
Stairs lead up from the sitting room to two bedrooms and the bathroom. The master bedroom has a super-king-sized bed (6') and views across the rolling Cornish countryside, and bedroom two is furnished with twin beds (3' each). The family bathroom is fitted with a shower cubicle, WC and basin.
A good sized lawned garden with trees and flowering shrubs and a picnic bench provides a fairly secluded outside space for al fresco eating, or simply sitting peacefully in the sun with a good book. Night storage heaters are fitted throughout the property in addition to the wood burner. There is a parking space for one car.

Cutlure and History
St Agnes got its name from the legend of the Bolster giant. He fell in love with local girl Agnes who eventually managed to rid the village of Bolster’s tyranny, the story of which is re-enacted each May in a village pageant. The local landscape shows the mining legacy of the area, and is recognised as both a World Heritage Site, and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

With a great range of bars and pubs, both traditional and contemporary, a fabulous beachside restaurant, and lovely cafes offering artisan coffee and freshly baked pastries, there’s a plethora of choice. Takeaways include fish and chips, Chinese, pizza, a vegan bakery, ice creams, and of course not forgetting the infamous Cornish pasty!

Take a Look Around
A very comfortable, well equipped cottage only a short walk from the centre of St Agnes. The first stretch of road has no pavement so care needs to be taken. The stairs are steep and this is clear from the cottage information.
It is a lovely area and St Agnes is a great village.The local museum is interesting to visit.
The cottage was lovely, just as we had hoped it would be, very clean and well equipped.
St Agnes is a beautiful place to stay and we could not fault the team at Aspects holidays. We’ve already booked a place in St Ives with Aspects, for next year as we need a bigger place for extended family, but we hope to be back at Pen Mor this winter
