About Elizabeth Driscoll

We live in Surrey with our two children and have been visiting our parents holiday home in Cornwall for the past ten years. When they sold their property we decided that we loved Cornwall so much that we would take the plunge and buy our own place. Having spent time in St Agnes previously and because of the great beach and vibrant village community, we knew that this was where we wanted our second home to be.

Elizabeth Driscoll purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Elizabeth Driscoll chose Truro & Falmouth area

It's so easy to get to St Agnes - just a ten minute drive from the A30 and no tiny lanes or tractors or car sickness to contend with! Once we are here, the convenience of being able to walk to the beach and local amenities, give us the option of parking the car when we arrive and not using it again until it's time to head home. When we do venture further afield, we love to walk along the miles of coastal paths or visit the beaches at Chapel Porth and Perranporth. We are also fond of the South Coast of Cornwall and are fortunate to be less than an hours drive away from lovely coastal villages such as St Mawes and Portscatho.

What makes this cottage unique

Of course, we love our house as much as we love the location. It has everything we need for a relaxing time away - a well equipped kitchen, cosy lounge, comfy beds and a big garage for storing bikes, body boards, buckets and spades and walking boots. For us, this means that packing to come here is just a case of throwing a few things in a bag and hitting the road.

We love it and we hope that you will enjoy sharing it with us.

Fantastic cottage in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at The Cornstore. The cottage is in a fantastic location in St Agnes and is a real home away from home. The kingsize bed was very comfy and we slept really well after lots of cliff top walks. It was an added bonus having a washing machine and dryer. Thank you for a great stay!

Great stay in a lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have just had the most memorable weeks holiday in St Agnes, staying in this lovely cottage. This was ideally situated in a central location for discovering Cornwall. The cottage had every facility needed and was extremely comfortable. Had lovely meals at the Driftwood spa, St Agnes Hotel and great Pizzas from the local takeaway. We visited Lands end, The Minnack theatre, St Micheals Mount, Eden Project, The Camel trail at Padstow and St Ives all great places with lots to do. Would recommend Cornwall and this cottage to anyone. PS. Wifi, a big plus with teenagers 😂

Beautiful cottage in a lovely place.

  • 5 of 5

We were going to a wedding in St Agnes and booked the cottage for 2 couples. The cottage exceeded our expectations -it was exceptionally well fitted out and there was plenty of space for 4 adults. It felt very homely and welcoming. Booking via the owner was effortless and from start to finish I had no reservations. Thank you -we may be back and have already recommended the cottage to friends and family.

Perfect accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd time to St Agnes but 1st time in this beautiful cottage! Everything in the cottage is finished to a very high standard and beautifully decorated throughout. Fully equipped with all the essentials but also spoils you with a little bit of luxury, especially those comfy beds! We stayed with our 2 children who had the most amazing holiday and spent the week at the beach since its only a little walk away. We will definitely be back!! Thank you so much to the owners of the cottage for a fantastic home for a week.

Beautiful cottage, generously furnished and equity. A perfect place for a family with lots of space. High quality and very clean. Close to the beach, village and local eateries. Lots of lovely walks and places to visit nearby, so a good base. They really have thought of everything, washing powder, cling film, beach BBQ, DVDs, local info and more. We were over the moon with our choice. Loved the bakery croissants and the driftwood pub. The bay is gorgeous and quiet. A short drive 1.5 miles is another beautiful beach at chapel porth. All of my emails got answered by the owner. Thanks so much, highly recommended.
