"We were delighted to find that this self-contained cottage in the valley was
exactly as shown and described on the website.
It provided the four adults and a baby with everything that we needed for our week away in this part of Cornwall; from the tranquil location, the close proximity to the beach and village, to the facilities within the house.
The addition of a cot, high-chair and stair-gate were kindly provided at no extra charge.
We were warmly greeted, our questions answered and we were made to feel at home.
The welcome pack, bottle of wine, biscuits and basic condiments in the kitchen were thoughtful additions to what is normally provided on a self-catering holiday. Thank you.
The entire place was beautifully clean and well equipped.
The balcony/sun terrace was particularly useful for sitting out in the early September warmth.
We have only explored a small area around St Agnes.
Argantel and Chy Kenza will be our first choice for a return visit."
"Thanks for a lovely stay - our batteries now fully recharged!"
"Thank you so much for providing a welcoming and homely place to stay.
We have loved every minute.
Thank you for lending us your animals too - they will be missed.
We will definitely be back again soon."
"Such a nice place to stay.
We really love St Agnes and have been returning each year since before the Millennium.
It’s great to find a base that surpasses previous accommodation.

Twixt the village and the sea . . .
"We have had a lovely week - and very much enjoyed our stay.
Super to hear the owls! We loved the 'Welcome' wine."
"Many thanks for your warm welcome. A lovely stay"
"I would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay in Chy Treza, it suited our needs perfectly.
Despite the cold temperatures outside it was always very cosy and snug inside.
We would definitely stay with you again. "
"We really didn't want to leave this morning.
Once again another fantastic time.
Counting the days till we're back next year."
"So peaceful and relaxing - and with the beach and pubs so close.
Couldn't wish for a better holiday!"
"Just to say 'thank you!'. Another wonderful holiday in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. We've really enjoyed having Jake & Elwood around; it's been like a home from home.
See you next year."
"Thank you for a delightful stay in your cottage. The cats are beautiful!"
"Thank you so much for all your help, we've had an amazing holiday!
The cottage has been perfect. Thanks for making it so clean and welcoming.
We'll definitely be recommending to our friends!"
"We've had a lovely holiday - thank you.
Very sorry to be going home, but we hope to come back."
"Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful holiday.
The cottage was beautiful and all the little details make so much difference.
We even managed two days on the beach!"
"Thanks again for a fantastic week. You make us feel so welcome.
See you next year."
"Beautiful, idyllic, serene - St Agnes' best kept secret - shh!"
"I just wanted you to know that the cottages are the cleanest and best-equipped we've ever stayed in.
The welcome pack was lovely - nice wine, beautiful flowers, and tea and biscuits just when we needed them! The little touches too - loo roll, hand wash, kitchen towel, herbs, salt & pepper, olive oil, sugar - just perfect.
Thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday.
We'll definitely see you soon!"
"Thank you so much. We had a great time and love St Agnes.
We will be back."

The houses have been done beautifully and are very thoughtfully equipped.
It was a very enjoyable week in a perfect location and we hope to return in the future."
"Just want to say thank you for a lovely week.
The cottage was fabulous, clean airy and superbly equipped. We will book again in the future. Shame we had to return to reality. Once again, thanks."
"Many thanks for another great stay. See you again soon!
p.s. the shopping bag is a great idea"
"Just a quick note to say what a lovely, peaceful break we had in Chy Nessa.
The cottage was delightful and we particularly loved your books on the history of St Agnes, which took us on a very happy trip down memory lane.
Thanks for your kindness."
"Just to say many thanks for a wonderful holiday and retreat.
It was a wonderful place to stay and we will hopefully return in a couple of years.
We were very lucky with the weather that particular week, but we did enjoy the rest and relaxation.
We also enjoyed the many visits from one of your cats, the softer furred darker ginger one, which popped in from time to time to say hello and have a rest. They were so friendly.
Your accommodation will be recommended.
Many thanks again."
"Thank you so much for a wonderful break.
The cottage was perfect for us and we've had such a relaxing time.
Will give you a call back as would like to book for next year.
"We have very much enjoyed our stay here at Chy Treza.
Thank you very much for making us feel so welcome and for making our stay very comfortable.
We thought the accommodation and location excellent.
We very much appreciated the extra efforts you put in to ensure everything was comfortable and safe for our son too.
He really seems to have enjoyed it here, particularly playing with his favourite truck on the wooden floor (I think the sound added to his enjoyment).
He liked seeing your cats playing too and nearly said 'cat' a few times.
I really liked the flowers and have been admiring them all week.
Thanks again to your son for helping us on the Wednesday night!
Many thanks and best wishes."
"I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay with you in March (despite the interesting weather).
The accommodation was very comfortable and pleasingly clean - it was little details that made the difference - like proper feather pillows.
Thank-you also so much for the loan of your towels.
We all had an enjoyable and restful time and would (and have) happily recommend your sanctuary."
"I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a most welcoming stay at Argantel.
We had such a relaxing time, which was well deserved after my time in Iraq.
Sarah and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and thought it was better than we had ever hoped it to be.
We will certainly be booking another break with yourself in the very near future and we have already recommended Argantel to our friends and family, who are all very impressed with the pictures we took.
Sarah asked if you could keep us updated with the new project you have with the hotel.
Thank you once again for an amazing time and for your hospitality."
"Thank you for an enjoyable stay.
It was lovely and we will recommend it to all our friends.
The cottage was all we could've hoped for in a lovely tranquil spot.
Thanks also for the loan of your kittens Jake and Elwood.
Ellis really enjoyed having them here.
We hope to see you sometime in the future and will make sure we book early!"
"As usual we had a fantastic time! Thanks for looking after us again.
I will be in contact later in the year to book again for next May.
Next stop Kenya in two weeks on Safari! Yippee!
Speak to you soon!"
"Just a quick note to thank you for letting us stay in your lovely house.
The little touches of wine and flowers made us feel very welcome and the boys loved looking after the kittens."
"Thank you for providing us with a fantastic holiday home - we have had lovely week."
"Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. The cottage is fabulous.
We hope to be back in the Autumn. Many thanks."
"Thanks so much for a great time. See you soon!
Big hugs for Charlie cat. Thanks again."
"Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed the week in your lovely cottage.
We will certainly be back in the future for another holiday.
We are also looking forward to seeing what you do with the hotel."
"Cheque gone in post today for a return visit to you next year!!
Enjoyed it so much we knew we wanted to re-visit straight away!"
"Just getting in touch to say thank you for our week in Chy Nessa, it was lovely to meet you and stay in such a great place.
Couldn't think of anything we didn't like about the accommodation or St Agnes, it really was lovely.
Everything was fantastic, really comfortable, well equipped and very homely.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of a break in Cornwall.
Thanks again, have a good summer."
"Sorry for the tears this morning - we have had such a good time I didn't want to go home!
You are so lucky. St Agnes is such a lovely place and your set up is really brill - you should be very proud!"
"We had a great holiday and really love your place - hope to see you again next year."
"Thanks for the welcome gifts and the hard work that means we are always greeted with a beautiful, clean, comfortable place to stay.
Hope to see you again soon."
"We had a brilliant holiday and it's been great being so close to the beach. Thank you! We are truly going to miss Minty, send our love! Thanks again."
"I really hope we will see you in 2008 and I will tell all my friends about your great cottages. Phil has really loved having the cats around - just hope the next set of guests love cats!
Once again many thanks - loved every minute.
Back to work tomorrow so we can have another holiday in Cornwall."
"Thanks again for another lovely welcome.
The cottage, as always, was perfect: A true home from home.
Look forward to seeing you again in September."
"As threatened, we would love to come back next summer to stay with you again (please).
We had such a great time this year and you were the perfect landlady!
We have learnt our lessons!"
"We just wanted to thank you for making our stay so enjoyable - the wine and biscuits were particularly appreciated."
"Just to let you know what a wonderful week we've had, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
The cottage was lovely and we'd like to reserve a week for next year."
"We really enjoyed our stay. We would certainly think of staying there again when I come down to visit my sister in a few years time.
We loved the book with the old pictures in and also enjoyed doing the walks.
We don't think you could improve anything.
We liked the new modern clean things and no clutter.
The wine and biscuits were a nice touch too. Thank you."
"Thanks for getting back to me. Shame it's booked - it was your cottage we wanted.
Without being too graphic, we are expecting a baby on July 15th - exactly 9 months after we stayed - so it holds some sentimental value.
I'm sure you'll see us again - can I book it for next May half-term?
