We were welcomed and looked after by Barbara and Mike. The room was immaculate and had everything you could need. Everywhere was clean and tidy. And breakfast was delicious! In such a great location near to the Eden project and Heligan Gardens. We are looking forward to going back in the near future. Couldn't recommend it enough.

Immaculately clean, lovely hosts, beautiful garden, delicious breakfast, good location. I would highly recommend this place. Biggest, most beautiful lilies I've ever seen. Only 10 minutes walk into town.

The minute I walked in, I felt entirely at home - Barbara is a wonderful hostess with local knowledge galore - ask her anything! The room was lovely: immaculately clean and very comfortable, with my own private bathroom which was an added bonus. I was travelling alone, but if you do happen to be travelling with a partner and prefer... More

Loved The Gables. Food was superb, room small but comfortable and everything immaculately clean. Barbara and Mike were hospitable, friendly, welcoming and full of information. Lovely garden. Cornwall is easier with a car, but the walk into town was pleasant and we were able to get buses to take us everywhere. Hard to leave!

Myself and my husband spent a lovely week at the Gables. Barbara and Mike are a fabulous couple who greeted us like long lost friends. They gave suggestions for places to visit during our stay that we hadn't thought of, they have a great knowledge of the area. The breakfasts were amazing, I adored the pancakes especially. Our room was... More

Very clean, fresh hot breakfast. Hosts very helpful. Lovely scenery from the window. Room was small but adequate and bed comfortable. Busy road though quite at night. Bus to Eden project or station across the road. 30 minutes walk to station. Not always easy to get a taxi so if you want one book one in advance. Trains frequent and... More
