  Located in an idyllic setting, this former tin mining centre has been transformed into a typical Cornish seaside resort with a number of sandy beaches, wonderful scenery and a sublime cove.

The panoramic views from 700ft St. Agnes Beacon are breathtaking. The county’s most famous painter, John Opie, was born at Harmony Cottage in 1761.

The engine house of a defunct tin mine sits precariously on the edge of a 300ft cliff.
