2017 Adventureline Guided Walking Holidays in Cornwall.
Our 'Partner' accommodations are on the spectacular north coast of Cornwall in the lovely unspoilt village of St Agnes.
We know that your accommodation and the welcome and cuisine you receive from your hosts is as important as the walks themselves. We have, over the past 29 years, built lasting partnerships with some fine Hotels, B&Bs and Home Stays.
You can either enjoy Half Board or B&B accommodation and during 2017, our week long walking holidays will range from £710 per person (staying with a local family in a B&B) - up to £1,100 per person (luxury hotel, with dinner, bed and breakfast).
We also offer some "Home Stay" options, where you are part of a friendly local family, with all meals included. As a guide, budget £885 pp pw including all meals. Please request our 2017 brochure and detailed accommodation list for the latest prices.
Whatever your choice, you will find yourself a short walk from splendid cliffs and beaches and the charming North coast village of St Agnes. This is the fictional village of 'St Annes', which Winston Graham wrote about in the popular "POLDARK" novels and TV series, is situated some 8 miles west of Cornwall's charming cathedral city of Truro, where the trains from London arrive.
The National Trust own large tracts of the local landscape, including the prominent 700 foot high St Agnes Beacon - with stunning views all over mid Cornwall and up and down the spectacular north coast. From here, one can see all the way down the north coast - past Godrevy Lighthouse where Virginia Woolf found the inspiration to write "To The Lighthouse" - to St Ives and beyond, and up the north coast to Trevose Head and its lighthouse.
You have a choice of accommodation and individual descriptions follow.
Rosemundy House Hotel
Dinner, bed & breakfast
This hotel is the largest around St Agnes and is situated close to the village centre, yet within a quiet and wooded valley with lovely gardens. It has a heated swimming pool too. Sometimes (but not always), larger groups stay here, so if you like to have people around you and enjoy good buffet dinners, this may be a good option. Good reviews from our past guests...
The Beacon Country House Hotel
Dinner, bed & breakfast
The Beacon Hotel is a lovely 3 star privately owned hotel, situated on the southerly slopes of St Agnes Beacon, just outside the village of St Agnes. It stands in extensive grounds of 2 acres and enjoys one of the more spectacular vistas in the area. The panorama encompasses a wide sweep of countryside, from St Austell and Bodmin Moors in the east, to the blue waters of the Atlantic, past Godrevy Lighthouse to St Ives in the west, some 13 miles distant - "as the crow flies."
The 11 bedrooms are all tastefully furnished and appointed, all with "en-suite" facilities. Each room has colour television, direct dial telephones, tea and coffee making facilities and a standard of comfort commensurate with their AA 3 star rating.
Both the dining room and lounge take full advantage of the view. Great pride is taken in the cuisine, which offers the very best of English dishes, presenting a varied menu making full use of fresh local produce. There is also an extensive wine selection available with dinner. The three lounge areas are spacious and offer great comfort, where you may enjoy a quiet moment or two, or even take your "after dinner" coffee - and perhaps watch a little television. For your convenience, the whole hotel has been designated as non-smoking and has Wi-Fi access. The well stocked bar is a pleasant place in which to relax in the evenings.
During the lighter months, it is quite feasible to take a stroll in the evening up to the top of St Agnes Beacon (10 mins) via the nearby footpath. From here, really spectacular views of the sunset can be observed. Also, the village, cliffs and Chapel Porth beach are all about 15-20 mins walk away. If you would like to be in a nice quiet location, with great panoramas and very comfortable rooms, then this might be your choice of accommodation. Good reviews from our past guests.
B & B only
A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at this elegant hotel. The Victorian building stands in the heart of picturesque St Agnes. It is conveniently situated on the coastal road through the village, where many varied outlets, hostelries and galleries are a few minutes walk away, with the beach and cliffs some 10-15 mins walk down the wooded valley lane.
The accommodation is provided in generous sized rooms (two with four poster beds) - all with private facilities and colour television. Public rooms comprise lounge, small bar and two dining rooms. On offer also, is more "family orientated" accommodation - either fully serviced in the two room family unit, or self-catering in the ground floor family apartment. As the property was originally a Gentleman’s residence, the rooms, which have been decorated in period style, have a homely, rather than a hotel feel - a characteristic that has been maintained during the renovations.
The owners, Ted and Jeannie Ellis, spent several years living and working abroad and many of the results of their souvenir hunting can be seen displayed both in the public rooms and the guest bedrooms. The generous breakfasts are tailored to suit guest’s individual needs. No evening meals are served, but the hotel is very close in walking time to several really good eateries. The hotel operates a no smoking policy throughout.
If you particularly like being close to the shops, pubs, and other local facilities and have a sense of humour, then this might be your choice. (Ted and Jeannie are very convivial!).
