Perfect hideaway
Compact and well equipped property. Really comfortable bed and come away with Velux envy! All very eco with solar panels and ground source heating which was efficient in November. Well located - off beaten track, yet close to Porthleven and Praa Sands. Bumpy narrow drive to get there and lucky to be at nearby Queens Arms when they did their Asian meal promotion night. And Judy was lovely host. Thank you.

Perfect and pleasant
Very clean and modern, really enjoyed the stay here. Ideally located not far from Porthleven harbour. Very small but ideal for two, which is what we were looking for. Very narrow lane to access the property is my only criticism. Will definitely come back here but most probably choose the larger property, "The Piggery". Thank you

Fantastic hidden gem
Me wife and baby had the privilige of staying here for two nights last week and we cannot reccomend the place highly enough. The pictures really don't do it justice and the owner as helpful as you could wish for.

Beautiful place in lovely surroundings
The property exceeded our expectations, it was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and the attention to detail was exceptional. Everything you could possibly need was provided and the WiFi was definitely a bonus! Beautiful surroundings also, a great little getaway and base for exploring Cornwall. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, can't recommend the Old Stables enough!

Old Stables quiet, comfortable and stylish!
Absolutely loved the cottage. Although it's small, it has everything you need and you're surrounded by the most beautiful scenery, beaches and a port. St. Michael's Mount within easy reach. You need a car to stay and bring plenty of food with you. Has everything you need to cook. The first place I've found WiFi that you can actually watch a movie on after a satisfying adventurous and fulfilling day out. Has a table to the rear in the garden which was a nice touch.

Access
Car advised
How to get there
Follow the A30 to the roundabout at Marazion. Take the A394, thes first exit off roundabout, towards Helston. Go up to Ashton. Then about 150yds from the Lion and Lamb Pub as the road bends to the left, take a right turn down a gravel track on the bend. Remember to slow down at the pub or you will over shoot the turning. If you do miss the turn, continue down the A394 and take the next turn to the right , which has a little red postbox at the top. This is a single land tarmac road with bends , so take care. This entrance would be better if you have a low car. Both roads end up at Crava Farm where you will find your accommodation. Postcode TR13 9SE into Google Maps or Cornwall Council Interactive Map will also find you Crava Farm.
