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.

65th Birthday Treat
Arrived at the apartment to be greeted by the owners Veronica and Ivan who gave us the keys and a brief introduction. On entering the apartment we were overwhelmed with the fixtures and fittings, it far exceeded our expectations and the welcome pack of tea, coffee etc plus a bottle of bubbles and some Cornish biscuits was much appreciated, on opening the fridge to unpack and store our foodstuffs we found fresh milk another welcome surprise. The bedroom & shower room both amazing. A wonderful holiday and birthday experience. So much to recommend the apartment which is a credit to Veronica & Ivan who are perfect hosts who gave us some great local information and ideas for our stay in Cornwall. We will have no reservations about recommending the apartment to our family and friends. Many thanks.
Ivan & Victoria were very helpful and the apartment has all the mod cons needed. A great location as it is close to some lovely places in Cornwall.
Thank you. Glad you had a great stay.
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.

Cornwall's coastal footpath is close-by providing the dramatic scenery of the north coast never to be forgotten.
