For bed and breakfast near the Eden Project - accommodation in St Austell Cornwall also for Lost Gardens of Heligan.
The Gables Guest House bed and breakfast is centrally situated within 10mins walk of St Austell town; where you will find main banks, shops and cinema. Also, the main Railway and Bus station can be found. There are plenty of beaches to enjoy, Porthpean, Charlestown, Carlyon Bay, Gorran, Meavagissey and Portmellon, to name just a few.
The Original building dates back from 1780 when it is believed to have been Stables for a farm. Then, in the 1800’s it then, was converted into a private house and became, ‘The Gables’.
It became a Guest House in the 1950’s and on and off until 2003 or so we are told. In 2008 Mike and I (Barbara) brought the property and set about transforming it to a cosy four bedroomed guest house, which we have achieved the "AA 4 star rating and the AA Breakfast Award"
The Gables Private Gardens:
Unwind in our private garden, surrounded by rare sub-tropical, cottage and local flora and fauna.
The Garden is divided into three parts, with all areas having hand rails and steps leading to the first area which has a fish pond and seating, the second has a sheltered seated area to sip your wine or coffee and relax in and the third has a large sheltered area with tables and chairs to enjoy your breakfast or Cornish cream tea (weather permitting).
Plenty of beautiful flowers to look at and enjoy; all kept beautifully, by Mike.
