Myrtle Cottage was completely overhauled with a new kitchen, bathroom and slate roof.

The Duchy met the cost rather than public funds.

The building had been used as holiday accommodation — but could now “be let to a local St Agnes family from this community where housing is much in demand”, the report said.


New tenant Janet Stewart said that she had waited 11 years for a family house to become available, and moved in last August.

She said: “The children have a bedroom each, and we unpacked belongings we haven’t seen in a decade.”

We yesterday revealed how Sovereign Grant figures showed taxpayers spent £2.4million renovating Frogmore Cottage in Windsor for Prince Harry and Meghan.
