About Alison Round

As a 'Cornish maid' it was wonderful to come back home to Cornwall in 2001. I love living in Porthleven. The scenery is breathtaking and always changing according to the season.

Alison Round purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Alison Round chose Porthleven

As soon as I walked into this house, it felt right and I knew I wanted to live here. It is old and has so much character as well as being in the heart of the village.

What makes this apartment unique

The Gables is full of character and although located in the heart of Porthleven, it has room for car parking in the grounds of the property, unlike many other holiday properties in the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had such a lovely time and the flat was perfect. It really was the ideal place for a holiday. Very good location, quiet and close to everything and very lovely. I'd recommend it to everybody. I'm already missing it.

"Second Year Running"

"Second Year Running"
  • 5 out of 5
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.

Very pleasant stay in Porthleven

  • 5 out of 5
The people who rent this apartment are very friendly and enthousiastic. You immediately feel welcome. The apartment itself is very clean, spacious and has good facilities. It even has a little balcony to enjoy nice weather. Shops and supermarkets are around the corner.
Porthleven is a pretty village, and it has nice surroundings to explore.
We had a very pleasant stay here and will most certainly recommend it to others.

Great location - all we hoped for

  • 5 out of 5
Porthleven lovely place andideally situated to explore the Lizard. The property was very comfortable with everything we needed along with a great position being so close to the harbour and shops and yet tucked away to be very quiet also.Would definitely return here and would recommend to our friends and family.

Home from Home.

  • 5 out of 5
This accommodation ticks all the boxes, comfortable beds, an easy shower to use and a TV that doesn't need binoculars to watch. Also the dining table is adjacent to a plug, for those of us who need our laptops, plus a perfect view of Sky TV, through the door ..... what more does one need in holiday accommodation.
We were greeted by Ali, who immediately made us feel at home, to an apartment that is well loved and cared for, the photos do not do it justice, it has an unique character, which overlooks their garden. It was great to watch all the birds feeding from the various perches.
The lounge seating is very comfortable and both beds sublime, because one of us snores ...... (I am pleading the fifth amendment ! ) ..... we used both rooms.
The car was safely parked off the road on their property, which is a bonus, as parking is very difficult in Porthleven.
The three pubs offer different styles, the Harbour Inn a delicious Sunday carvery, The Ship various fish meals and the The Atlantic a selection for all ages. But we preferred The Old Inn at Mullion, as it also had a menu that catered for vegetarians and good value for all tastes, at reasonable prices.
Without hesitation I will recommend this apartment and hopefully we will return again soon, to enjoy the village and a base from which to explore the beautiful coastline and charming countryside.

Cannot keep us away

  • 5 out of 5
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.
