This beautifully-refurbished, old double-fronted character cottage is set up a quiet lane just yards from St. Agnes’ main high street and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Oriel Cottage is a beautifully-refurbished, old double-fronted character cottage, set up a quiet lane just yards from St. Agnes’ main high street. The cottage can sleep four people in one double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a shower room. There is also an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area with a woodburner. Outside, there is off road parking for one car and an enclosed courtyard with furniture, a coal barbecue, four eco-energy lights and a heated lamp. Oriel Cottage is a wonderful base for a holiday exploring North Cornwall's coastline.


Bit of a Shame -
We booked this cottage through a holiday company and were looking forward to switching off for a week. Overall the cottage was OK, but there are some issues that need to be taken into consideration or addressed by the Owner/Holiday Company to ensure a better stay. Below are what I believe are the good points and bad points (in no particular order) 1) Parking - yes there is a garage but unless you have a small car there is no way its going to fit. However there is room to park across the garages. Please be aware that the parking is down a narrow lane. 2) Access to the property is through a very tight 6ft wide entrance off the main road. 3) The shower screen was broken and unless held together floods the bathroom floor. Maintenance firm was informed on first day but we heard nothing. 4) Courtyard garden was filthy as was the outside furniture. It didn't look like it had been cleaned since last summer. Kurb appeal not great with many tall weeds growing in front of the property. 5) The bedding was very clean. 6) Washing Machine and Dishwasher very useful. 7) Excellent Broadband 8) Convenient for shops 9) Noise from shops - although the property is situated on a quiet lane, the actual property is about 10 meters from the main road and the local spar shop. Please be aware that the noise from the road and especially the deliveries to the Spar shop travel straight up the lane to the cottage. It is especially noisy in the morning if you have the windows open. We were woken many times at 5 am due to noise. 10) The mattresses on the beds were poor and springs were already being felt through them. 11) Plenty of wardrobe space 12) Bedrooms a bit cramped. 13) Well stocked kitchen 14) Excellent information pack with instructions on how to use all pieces of kit in the cottage. Not sure what seems to be happening with this accommodation as it has the potential to be great but it just doesn't seem to be getting maintained thoroughly.

The Cottage was beautiful and equipped with everything you could need.
Mrs Martin

The cottage was absolutely beautiful, everything about it was lovely. It is very central to the village. We would certainly stay again. An absolute delight.
Mr Forshaw

Oriel Cottage is an excellent property with contemporary d?cor. There was a plentiful supply of kitchen crockery and utensils and the location was also excellent.
Mr Dickens

Oriel Cottage is thoughtfully designed with provision throughout the cottage. Very quiet (in December). Usefully near the shops. We liked the touch lights upstairs - very easy to use, magic! The bed was lovely.
