About the Owner
We moved to Cornwall in 2002 seeking a better work-life balance and we have certainly found it. We still enjoy everything Cornwall has to offer and make sure we walk every day on the beautiful cliff paths and beaches with our dog, Ruan.

This property of one if the highest standards that could be found. Everything is at had and so so clean. Comfortable bed and beautiful scenery from the bedroom window. What a delight to behold and we were fortunate to find it. Thanks to Keith and Louse are time spent there was great. Our grandaughteer visited us and as soon as she entered Little Hive she exclaimed "WOW! - it is far better than our place". An acculade in itself.

What a fantastic place
Little Hive has everything that a couple require for a complete holiday. Strategically placed for St Agnes, the North Cornish coast, Truro, Falmouth & Roseland peninsula, Keith & Louise include everything a couple may require. It's cosy yet ample for two people and has extras like binoculars and maps. Though the owners live next door, your independence is paramount. Highly recommended
From the Owner
“We moved from a stone cottage on the Pennines with great views over the Yorkshire moors, near Hebden Bridge. We felt immediately at home in St Agnes and chanced upon a house and annexe with equally stunning views along the coast. A radical rebuild created a light filled house, making the most of the panorama.”
Activity and Interests
Trevaunance Cove is about a 20 min walk away and the National Trust beach at Chapel Porth is a little further. Both beaches have car parks and are just a few minutes drive from the Little Hive. The north coast is rugged with spectacular cliffs and has numerous coves and beaches each with their own character, many are surfing beaches. The south coast is easily reached by car and is a popular watersports area.
The nearest rail station is at Truro (9 miles) and the nearest airport is at Newquay (12 miles). There is a bus service to the village but use of a car is recommended. Even without transport there is enough interest to keep you busy within walking distance.

From the Owner
“In 2012 we renovated the Little Hive to the same high standard as the main house, while retaining its cottage atmosphere. The living rooms, bedroom and kitchen all enjoy the panoramic views along the coast, as does the patio where guests can eat or relax overlooking the garden. The Little Hive is light during the day, and cosy with a log fire in the evening. The furnishings and original art works have delighted our guests so far. We hope that you will enjoy living here for a week or two as much as we do all year round.”
