PIGGY WHIDDEN, ST AGNES
This gorgeous two-bedroom cottage is full of character and style and set in the heart of St Agnes, one of Cornwall's most sought-after villages. Beautifully refurbished it’s been a true labour of love to create this wonderful home and it shows! Perfectly positioned on one of the villages most favoured roads it’s a stroll to the local surfer’s beach at Trevaunance Cove as well as the area’s fantastic local pubs, restaurants and shops. The landscaped garden is a delight, and unusually large for this type of cottage with plenty of spots to sit out and enjoy a sundowner after a day on the beach. Piggy Whidden is dog friendly too so your pooch is welcome and will love the numerous walks along this stunning heritage coastline.
This really is a pretty cottage and walking through the front garden, stable doors lead you into the wonderful open plan living room which flows through to the hand-built kitchen/dining room overlooking the garden. There are flagstone floors, a stunning fireplace and the bespoke furnishings exude quality. It’s a perfect blend of old and new with all the mod cons taken care of within the wonderfully stylish interior. Upstairs the two bedrooms with their pocket sprung mattresses and high-quality bedding are sure to give you a good night’s rest. One has a king size bed and a luxurious en suite shower room. The other faces the garden and has a super king size bed which can be split into twins, you decide. The main bathroom has a free-standing bath and stunning sink set on an original antique, sewing machine stand. What a special space to have a soak after a day’s activities.
Leave the car behind as with everything from great food to wonderful coastal walks all on your doorstep, Piggy Whidden is sure to give you a Cornish break to remember.
Piggy Whidden is situated on an idyllic terrace of cottages in one of the best positions on Rosemundy, one of the villages favoured roads. It's a ten-minute walk or so to Trevaunance Cove which leads onto The St Agnes Heritage Coast, a nationally designated protected area surrounded by stunning countryside and beaches. As well as Trevaunance Cove, immediately to the West is Chapel Porth beach and to the East Perranporth so budding surfers will have their pick of some of the best spots in the county.
The village of St Agnes is a sought-after destination and spend a little time there and you will soon see why. You can leave the car and pretty much everything you need for a great holiday is on your doorstep. Food wise, whether it’s a laid-back café to an upmarket eatery you’re covered, with local shops from a butcher to a deli all close by. Some of our top tips include The Tap House, Taste and of course The Driftwood Spars, famous for its beer. For fish and chips there's Fission in the village. The St Agnes Bakery, a favourite with the Poldark film crew, does great sausage tolls and pasties and Wheal Kitty a fashionable spot has the Canteen and is home to the trendy Finisterre clothes store.
Walking in you enter the living room with its wonderful blend of old and new including pieces of stunning campaign furniture. There is a large squishy two-seater sofa, armchair, high back captain’s chair and window seat. These overlook the original fireplace and wood burner. In the entrance area is a desk and chair and there is a wall mounted flat screen TV which is internet ready.

WHAT GUESTS ARE SAYING...
“Beautiful little cottage in the heart of St Agnes. A short walk away from the beach. Cosy little sitting room & kitchen for cooking. Lovely wood burner for the cosy autumn evenings. Lovely shower and a big bath for warming up post cold sea dip!”
Mary – September 2023
“FANTASTIC stay at Piggy Whidden. We absolutely loved St Agnes and can’t wait to come back. Loads to do in the town and a wonderful beach to enjoy. Small village cottage and the basic amenities provided. Perfect for two very close couples”
Brodie – August 2023
"The cottage was really cosy and nicely furnished. Bathrooms are particularly well done. Great location too with nice eats, pubs and shops all close by. A pasty from the St Agnes bakery is an absolute must!! It doesn't come with parking but we never had any trouble parking outside or a few metres up from the cottage. Would definitely recommend."
Jane – July 2023
“A very comfortable cottage in an ideal location. Shops and restaurants close by, beach within walkable distance, and so many other great places to visit nearby. We had such a lovely week, perfect weather and such a comfortable cottage to come back to each evening. Thank you for being so helpful with directions and local info, much appreciated.”
