A stylish and comfortable base with easy access to north coast beaches. The village is unpretentious but has useful little shops and a good pub. Very pleasant walks right from the door to Portreath and the coast path.

I would highly recommend Little Gables. The property is comfortable and very well equipped for us and our dog. Beverley and David went to extraordinary lengths to make sure that their property was cleaned in accordance to COVID recommendations. I would definitely stay here again.

Little gables was the cleanest property we have ever stayed in. It was beautifully decorated and extreme well equipped.

Beautifully furnished and well equipped cottage in a great location, highly recommended. Close to beaches and all local amenities, owner very helpful, great communication.

July 2020

We found it very clean & tidy, nicely decorated & furnished & well equipped. It was very evident the owners had made a huge effort during the Covid-19 pandemic providing fresh soap at every sink & plenty of hand sanitizer. They also left a lovely welcome hamper which was a very pleasant surprise after a long journey. They also contacted us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction & quickly notified us when the cleaner found an item we’d left behind by mistake. Illogan put us in easy reach of both coasts & a good location to go out & explore Cornwall.

Absolutely amazing accommodation with everything you could need for a stay in Cornwall. The cream tea and milk in the fridge on arrival was a lovely personal touch. Will definitely be recommending Little Gables to family and friends. We were in Illogan for a family funeral but the location of the property put us right in the middle of all our family in Illogan and the quality of the accommodation made a very difficult time a little easier.

Thank you for a fantastic stay in a comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean cottage.

This is a gem of a holiday home Owner was welcoming and very helpful It wants for nothing! Everything is provided for you. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need away from your own home The opposite of a 'hard work holiday home' Incredibly comfortable to come home to and very cosy Lovely seating areas at back and front Light and airey and spacious Having two bathrooms was great Immaculate condition Off street parking greatly appreciated

We loved staying in Little Gables. A home from home house that we felt very comfortable in. Very clean and fresh. The house had everything we needed and the owners even provided welcome drinks and biscuits for us. We had shops, takeaways and a pub all in 5 mins walking distance which was fab! We will definitely be returning on our next trip to cornwall.

We had stayed in Cornwall many times and can confidently say that Little Gables is a real gem. The property was immaculately clean and incredibly well stocked with lots of extra touches (Netflix, fully stocked kitchen, goodies on arrival, safety features for young children, beach toys etc.).

The property is spacious and newly decorated throughout and in a really great central location. Our favourite place in Cornwall is Godrevy which is just a 10 min drive away and there are many other great spots within 15-30 mins.

The owner was lovely and couldn’t have been more attentive when we did get in touch.

All in all one of the nicest places we have stayed in Cornwall and we will be back next year!
