"An amazing cottage, within walking distance of the centre of St Agnes. We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Cornwall. We were absolutely over the moon that we chose Piggy Whidden and St Agnes to be our home for the last week. The cottage was absolutely amazing, clean on arrival and exactly as described. Also a big thanks to Seb, the property manager. He was great to deal with. From the point of making the booking he was very responsive to any questions and made the accommodation side of our holiday so straight forward. We would definitely return to Piggy Whiddon and the lovely St Agnes in the future."
