"Second Year Running"

We took a holiday at The Gables in Sept 2009 and again in Sept 2010 so we decided it was time to write a review and recomend this great appartment to others. The flat itself is very clean and welcoming and is a lovely "home" to return to after a day out discovering this fabulous area. You probably wont notice the owner Alison because she quite rightly lets you get on with your holiday without intrusion but if there is anything you need or want to ask she is on hand to help, just as we like it.

Porthleven itself is a wonderful place with beaches, small shops, restaurants, 3 great pubs and a lovely harbour. There are also supermarkets and quality take aways all very close indeed to The Gables.
Last year we came as a couple with a rather large poodle called Dalby and enjoyed the holiday so much that this year we were joined by our 20 year old son and his fiance, there was plenty of room for all in the appartment and thy fell in love with Porthleven just as we had the previous year.
If you are looking for a great base to take in the delights of Cornwall and like the idea of a well equiped, well positioned and friendly appartment set in a super harbour town...then I think you have just found it.

Cannot keep us away

  • Review Submitted: 06-Oct-2013

Just returned from our fourth visit to The Gables - we are sure it will not be our last.

It doesn't take long to feel at home, and the great thing is Porthleven has plenty on the doorstep for an enjoyable stay.
Every time we see something different, but the beautiful beach and sea are all of five minutes walk away.

No shortage of pubs, restaurants and other food outlets mean a no hassle holiday - great when you can just forget the car if you fancy a drink or a meal.

We found several new coves/beaches this time, but The Lizard, Sennen Cove etc are lovely any time. Flambards is quite interesting to visit on a wet day as the exhibits are indoors.

We are already looking forward to our next visit.
Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time and we look forward to seeing you again.

A very comfortable,clean and warm apartment, with the added bonus of off street parking.
It was also nice to have an outdoor sitting area where we could unwind after
a days walking. Would stay here again when visiting Porthleven.

Cosy apartment in lovely village

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 10-Jun-2012
  • Date of Stay: May 2012
Warm and friendly greeting from Mark (Alison's husband) on arrival. The apartment, which we thought was a very good price, is in a perfect position to walk everywhere in the village, and the proximity to all the shops and eateries is wonderful. Unfortunately the fish and chip shop, which had been recommended, was closed for a week !!! The apartment had everything that we needed for our holiday, and inclusion of internet connection was wonderful, also Sky TV, which some may think is not needed on a holiday, but for 'oldies' who don't go out much at night, was much appreciated. I must congratulate Alison and Mark on their ability to 'be there' but also 'not be there'. We worried, slightly, that living above the owners might be too near, but they manage to maintain a wonderful balance. We knew one of them would nearly always be there, if there was a query, but they didn't intrude on our privacy at any time. The car parking space was also a big plus, because on our walks around the lovely village, we couldn't help but notice how many holiday cottages have NO parking.
