About Elaine Lewis

My husband and I live and work in the Cotswolds and have two teenage daughters. We discovered Port Isaac when we were on our honeymoon twenty years ago and fell in love with it then. We have been coming back ever since.

Now that Doc Martin has put Port Isaac on the map we are delighted that more people are coming to enjoy this special location. We get a kick out of seeing our front door on camera.

Port Isaac is also home to the now famous Fishermen's Friends singers and we take pleasure in seeing them perform on the Platt every Friday evening from 8 p.m. during the summer months.

Elaine Lewis purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Elaine Lewis chose Port Isaac

When the opportunity came up to buy the apartment in 2006 we jumped at the chance because it is perfectly positioned in the centre of the village. Over the next eighteen months we undertook extensive renovations to turn it into a comfortable, high spec home from home. We try to get down there as often as possible as we love the surrounding area, walking the coastal path and visiting some of the glorious North Cornwall beaches. We hope you will like it as much as we do.

What makes this apartment unique

What we enjoy most about the apartment is the open feel to the sitting room where you can sit and watch the world go by from the window. When you are cooking you are still all together which makes it a great entertainment space. We also like to be able to wander from the front door and have a choice of places to eat right on our doorstep.

Great home from home property and really useful parking outside for off load/ load, particularly shopping . Seconds from harbour . Handy pasties shop next door that sells essentials ... milk bread etc. Good size TV and Netflix to keep kids happy in the evening! Will definitely book again.

A great little apartment in the very heart of Port Isaace

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property over the new year 2017/18. It was very clean and comfortable and well equipped. I would definately recommend this property.

The only thing I would say is that there is a definite lack of hanging space for clothes but also to try towels, washing etc. This is primarily down to the shape of the rooms but would be worth considering options to address this.

The drawers in the fridge were broken and the plug for the dishwasher didn't work (we got around this by using the extension lead to use an alternative plug) but these were the only snags.

Fantastic location. Warm, tastefully decorated and deceptively large!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in Port Isaac. The cottages location was perfect for pottering to the beach, shops and watching the world go by. I would highly recommend this place!

Comfortable apartment in a great location on Port Isaac

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better location in Port Isaac. It is right in the center of the town. It was comfortable and clean with a very modern kitchen. The WiFi worked very well even though the phone coverage was not good. We were warned about that. Just a little walk up the hill and we could make a phone call if we had to do that. Nicki B's Pasty Shop was next door and she was so helpful and fun to talk to as we bought our pasties, coffee, and pastires. She also sold eggs, milk, juice, bread and bacon so we got a start on our groceries just by going next door. As the other reviews said, the pub was 10 feet from our front door. We could have used a welcome note to tell us some things that we needed to figure out ourselves. I did have to email Elaine about the heaters, and she returned my email quickly. It was cool the first night there and someone had switched off the heaters and they take some time to charge when they are turned on. However, we would definitely stay there again

Fab apartment!! Great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. A pub, pasty shop, cafes & beach ALL within walking distance!! A bustling harbour great for watching life go by with a bit a crabbing too!!

The apartment is really easy to live in and very comfortable very easily sleeps 6.

There is a supermarket nearby for all the essentials and plenty of places to eat.

You can walk along the coastal path close by & find very pretty coves & beaches. Bigger beaches a short drive away tintagel is just up the road.

Would visit again.

Great location and lovely accommodation.

  • 4 of 5

Right in the heart of Port Isaac. Lovely location although you do need to be aware of the road and parking limitations. Great food nearby - literally about 10 feet from the apartment!
