Set on the outskirts of the village of Illogan and just under two miles to Portreath, Little Gables is a very stylish year-round retreat. With coastal walks galore and a friendly local pub within walking distance, this fabulous detached house, which is dog-friendly too, is an ideal destination whatever the season.

Step through the hallway into the sitting-room which is lovely and light and features a super-comfy large corner sofa. The open plan kitchen/diner is very well-equipped to create a romantic candlelight meal for two or a family breakfast for six, making sure everyone is well fuelled before heading out for a fun filled day exploring the north Cornwall coast.

Designed very much with families in mind, on the first floor there are three good-sized bedrooms and a sleek family bathroom.

Outside, the enclosed patio is a sun-trap in the summer and the perfect spot for enjoying a chilled glass of wine after a day walking those local coast paths. Just along the road from the house (which is located on the main road into Illogan) you will also find numerous delicious restaurants and pubs, from fish and chips to an Indian takeaway, the choice is yours! With your parking space directly outside the property, life could not be made easier.

Head out for the day and choose one of three local sandy beaches to explore! Portreath, Gwithian and Porthtowan are all a short drive from Little Gables. Each one is unique and very special, so whether you fancy surfing, dog walking, rock pooling or simply sitting in the sun with a good book-you can take your pick! Little Gables really is a gorgeous property and is ideal for families or couples wanting a seaside break where beaches and surf are only a short distance away.
