Things to do and see: Port Isaac is a world in itself. It has become well known as the location of the TV series Doc Martin. It is also home to the Fishermans Friends the award winning, close harmony singing group. In addition the fantastic coastal paths are accessible to walkers most of the year and it's easy to spend time in the village as the local shops and restaurants provide all you need for a few days of rest and recuperation. Further afield are the delights of Padstow - joined by ferry to Rock with it's sailing community and golf course - Tintagel, with is ruined but majestic castle, pretty village centre and the fascinating King Arthur's Halls, and the wilds of Bodmin Moor. The world famous Eden Project is 30 minutes drive and further along the cost is St Ives, with its artists' community and Tate Gallery, and Newquay with its surf and sand culture.

Local Amenities:

There are several restaurants and a pub (dog friendly) offering a range of good food, there are also several tea/coffee shops plus a fish and chip shop offering during the season plenty of choice all within a very short stroll.

Port Isaac has a local Co-op supermarket which is well stocked and has long opening hours with a free cash machine. There is also a larger branch of the Co-op in Wadebridge (8 miles away) Lidl and Tesco. The local delicatessen has wonderful home-made pasties, and other prepared foods - well worth a visit - and the Fish Market on the Platt is a mecca to foodies. Choose your lobster and they will even cook and prepare it for your table! There are several other interesting gift shops and galleries selling a wide range of gifts and clothing. The renowned Port Isaac Pottery is situated in a converted Weslyan chapel overlooking the harbour and well worth a visit for hand painted items from wall tiles to lamp bases.

Within walking distance is the attractive cove of Port Gaverne with its local inn (dog friendly) serving a range of good food.

History: This part of North Cornwall is rich in legend and ley lines. Synonymous with tales of piracy and smuggling it's easy to see why with its numerous rocky inlets, hidden caves and treacherous waters. Port Isaac is still a working fishing port serving the tourist centres along the coastline with its daily hauls of lobster, mussels and other fresh fish. It was famous in the last century for its kippers which were smoked in the cellars next to the beach. Further along the coast is the mystic Tintagel Castle, steeped in Arthurian legend and folklore. Visitors must also pay tribute to the brave residents of Boscastle who have re-opened the village to visitors after the devastating floods.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 3rd trip to Port Isaac, the cottage is very cosy and well equipped, the beds are also very comfy and the whole place is very clean and tidy. The weather wasn't great so couldn't make use of the terrace and views.

We loved it and will return.

Beautiful setting in the heart of Port Isaac.

Very clean. There were five of us (adults) and we had everything we needed. Would happily stay there again. Having somewhere to park the car was a great advantage.

Wow. What a cool place. What a cool house. What a cool view (from the terrace). Just remember to bring some towels, cause there ain't none.

Typical fisherman's cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage just a stones throw from the harbour of Port Isaac (doc Martin's village)Very well equipped and comfortable . Views from the upper terraces at the back wonderful. To reach the terraces, however is quite steep so that should be borne in mind. Also the walk to the parking space is extremely steep too so I would suggest not suitable for those not so good on their feet!!

Otherwise a very pleasant cottage in a wonderful location.

The picturesque harbour village of Port Isaac nestles between the Camel Estuary and Tintagel on the stunning North Cornwall coast. The area offers exhilarating walks along the coastal path, bike rides along the 10 mile Camel Trail, and safe beaches for both swimming and surfing. Polzeath is just a short drive away favourite spot of our previous Prime Minister Mr Cameron and his family, excellent for all levels of surfing with lessons and equipment available to hire. Many visitor attractions are within easy driving distance, including Tintagel Castle, the Eden Project and the artists' community of St Ives with the Tate Gallery. The village of Port Isaac is a famous conservation area and a popular location for film and TV crews. It's narrow streets have featured in, the film Saving Grace and, more famously in Doc Martin, the internationally popular TV series. Local 'colour' is provided with open air performances of the Fisherman's Friends, an accapello singing group. There is good selection of local restaurants, (including the recently opened Nathan Outlaw's Michelin starred seafood restaurant) pubs and coffee shops in both Port Isaac and other local villages.
