About Elizabeth Adams

We bought the property in 2001. At the time our 4 children ranged from age 2 - 6, so it was a way of getting out of the city at weekends and holidays and spending time by the sea.

Why Elizabeth Adams chose Cornwall

We love Cornwall for its rugged scenery, fantastic beaches and great walks. The cottage has a long history; it was used by tin miners back in the 19th century.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is in a great location in St Agnes so close to shops, pubs and restaurants, while being very close to some great beaches - Trevaunance, Chapel Port and Porthtowan. It is easy to get to many different places in Cornwall, from Falmouth, to Penzance, Helston and Padstow so there is always plenty to do and see.

Cosy and comfortable in an ideal location in the village.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely cottage with everything you could need. The beds were really comfy and the children loved playing and exploring in the huge garden. Walk in one direction and you are in minutes of the pubs and shops in the centre of the village. Walk the other way and you find yourself in a delightful picturesque lane- perfect for an amble or to walk the dog. The beach at Trevaunance Cove was within walking distance for us too. A great cottage in a lovely Cornish village!

Beautiful cottage in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

This homely cottage was very tidy and clean on arrival, with brilliant amenities (lovely big garden where we enjoyed eating alfresco, lots of cooking utensils, great DVD stash, etc). A short walk to the village centre and the beach, it was the perfect place to spend a long weekend.

Brilliant holiday house

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Clean and tidy. Lovely garden for dogs, small and big boys to play in. All mod cons. Close to the sea but easier to get to by car if you have small children. The restaurants are excellent, but book in plenty of time. But the best was lighting the fire in the evening and sitting with a glass of wine. Fantastic!!

Very comfortable cottage with a great garden and location

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at Calderbrooke Cottage and we found it to be well equipped and very comfortable. The garden is fantastic with loads of space and as we had fine weather we were able to make the most of it. It is well located for coastal walks and a short walk from the centre of St Agnes which is well served by local shops/pubs/restaurants etc. Elizabeth was very helpful and we would definitely recommend it especially if you have younger children. We hope to be back!

Spacious comfortable cottage ideal for a family

  • 5 of 5

St Agnes is a quaint friendly village with all the essential shops within walking distance of the cottage(eg butcher, baker, newsagent and village stores) as well as a small number of pubs and restaurants. The cottage is well equipped and ideal for families(two sitting rooms allow adults peace and quite in the one with no TV whilst our teenagers enjoyed watching DVD's in the other. They also enjoyed the Wi-Fi ) especially the garden which is lovely,the photos don't do it justice. (we would have loved to have used the BBQ but unfortunately the Cornish weather was against us) The nearest beach is a pleasant 20 minute walk. The whole area is a walkers paradise. Horse riding and surfing lessons are available in nearby Perranporth. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage (our Irish setter dog also had a great time ,dogs by arrangement) and wouldn't hesitate to book it again.
