Why Ivan Yates chose Illogan
We fell in love with the village of Illogan years ago as it has everything you need is quite and peaceful but still within walking distance of a great beach and central to all the popular resorts such as St Ives and Falmouth. Illogan retains it charm with local business and a great local pub. The north coastal footpath is dramatic and we never tire of its stunning beauty. We built the annex some 7 years ago to be an independent unit for visiting family and friends that has been a huge success that we would now like to share more widely.

The apartment was very clean and well furnished to a high standard. There was everything we could possibly need. Loved the modern touches such as the reading lights in the bedroom! Ivan and Veronica were very welcoming and left us a list of instructions which were very comprehensive. There is no problem with parking as you can either park on the driveway or on the street. The property was very central to attractions and resorts such as St. Ives (& thank you Veronica for the tip about the train!), Lands End, Penzance, Perranporth, Hayle, The Lizard, St. Michael's Mount & Portreath to name but a few!
We recommend Hells Mouth Cafe for a wonderful breakfast (another tip) and The Boatshed in Perranporth. Not sure about the Tate, but that's a matter of taste!
Tip- make sure you take lots of change for parking unless you are super savvy with a smart phone!
Thank you both for a great stay and we would highly recommend this property.
We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday. Thank you for such a lovely review and we very much hope to see you on your next visit to Cornwall.
