Located in the heart of this bustling village, the name of this lovely cottage translates to Little Rose Cottage.
The traditional cottage staircase is a little steep with a low lintel on the way up and divides at the top step to the bedrooms.
The utility-room by the back door also houses an additional WC.
On those cooler evenings the cosy wood-burner will keep you warm.
The dining-room links the sitting-room with the kitchen and rear patio garden.
The lovely double bedroom is a spacious and relaxing space.
Enjoy a lie in on your holiday.
Pretty local art in the cottage.
The twin bedroom has a sloped ceiling and is comfortably furnished (Bedroom 2).
Lovely wet-room.
The beach at Portreath.
There is space in the garden for relaxing and although guests do not have access to the shed, there is space to leave your surfboards and beach gear by the back door.
The cottage has two spaces, one of which is suitable for a small car, however if you have something larger the Owner suggests parking across the two spaces as shown here.
This cute cottage sits on the roadside in the heart of Illogan, there is a 30mph limit on the road and the traffic tends to be local.
Portreath is a wonderful place to visit and is only a short drive from the cottage.
For surfers and sand castle builders alike, the beach here has something for everyone.

Just to bear in mind if you are tall.....6ft+ the beams and ceilings will need dodging!!!! ??

For a family of 4 this was a great place to stay. With days surfing on Gwithian beach coming back to the cottage to enjoy a BBQ in the court yard was a great end to the day. we didn't want to leave and we hope to be back next year and maybe years to come.

Very nice cottage and a friendly and helpful owner. This cottage is very small and anyone around the height of 6ft would find themselves bent double a lot of the time. The parking is a bit tight and we were in a small car. Overall it's a very good location and a comfortable cottage with a very well equipped kitchen. I would stay here again.

This is a lovely traditional cottage, equipped to a high standard, very well positioned for touring both Cornish coasts. The Robartes Arms Pub down the road is very welcoming and offers good value for money food and drink., with a well stocked Co-op next door to it. Looking forward to visiting again.

Lovely cottage. Clean and tidy and very conveniently situated. However it really wouldn't suit people above average height due to the low ceilings throughout the property and as you have to access the shower room through the 2nd bedroom it is only really suited to a family.

A lovely, lovely cottage in a perfect location. We chose this property for our family to be central to St Ives and Newquay on our second visit to Cornwall. We were not disappointed. The cosy cottage is ideal spot for visiting this beautiful coastline and its beaches. There is so much to do whatever the weather. We would recommend the local fish and chip shop, Chinese take-away and Robartes Arms.

The situation of the cottage was just perfect for access to all parts of Cornwall. It was excellent throught, extremely comfortable with every amenity required. Fabulous cottage in every way we would go back again.

The lean to was excellent for drying beach stuff and storing bikes. Fresh flowers and provisions were a lovely touch. Men have sore heads from the low door frames!! But we loved it. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
