Overview

About the property

Traditional Fishermans Cottage in Port Isaac, North Cornwall, UK - 50 yards from the Picturesque Harbour, Resturants, Shops & Pub

Osprey is a warm and cosy traditional cottage that makes it a very special place to feel at home. The filming of Doc Martin with Martin Clunes has made the village popular for passing tourists. The views and scenery are stunning, the sea charismatic and the coastal walks fabulous. Local restaurants and pubs offer the finest in fish dishes, with the local fishermen still working from this pretty harbour. The fish market near the harbour sells freshly caught fish daily. The entertainment on the Platt comes in the form of sea shanties sung by the local and now famous ‘Fishermans Friends’, not to be missed on a Friday night! (in the height of the season). The good work of the RNLI can be appreciated with a visit to the lifeboat house on the Platt. Why not enjoy a 50 yard stroll from the cottage to sit comfortably on the Platt, watch the sea roll in and enjoy a glass of wine or two! Port Isaac touches your heart and once visited is never forgotten.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A pleasure to stay in Osprey in the beautiful Port Isaac. We have enjoyed so many lovely walks on local beaches - Polzeath, Daymer, Trebarwith Sands to mention a few. We have enjoyed sitting admiring the views at Port Isaac Bay and returning to relax in the cottage. A real home from home. Thank you Rosemarie

An absolute gem!

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful, atmospheric, cosy cottage and we had a lovely stay. It is in the most central location, just yards from the harbour and was comfortable and clean, with good bed linen. Highly recommended - although taller people need to mind their head as there are some low ceilings!

Sehr schönes kleines Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Das Cottage ist ein mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtetes Reihenhäuschen mitten in Port Isaac. Es liegt geschätzte 100m vom Hafen entfernt. Dort findet man den Fischhändler und mehrere Restaurantes/Cafes/Bars. Die Decke ist sehr niedrig, der Boden ist schief und knarzt aber das ist auch gut so, denn so entsteht ein nostalgischer Charm, der verbunden mit schönen Bildern von Port Isaac an den Wänden oder Holzmöwen und Keramikfischen sowie einem uhrigen kleinen Kaminofen und vielen weiteren Details 100% Wohlfühlcharakter verschafft. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet was Familie mit zwei Kindern und Hund benötigt. Vom Kinderstuhl bis zum Hundefressnapf war alles vorhanden.

Also warum keine 5 Sterne?:

Es gibt keinen Parkplatz. Das Be- und Entladen findet somit vor der Tür auf der sehr engen Straße statt. Hier kann es zu einer gewissen Hektik kommen wenn weitere Fahrzeuge diese Straße passieren möchten. Obwohl gerade die einheimischen mit einer erstaunlichen Gelassenheit Verständnis zeigen und gerne bereit sind zu warten.

Ein weiterer Punkt und das ist eigentlich der wesentliche, ist das Badezimmer. Auch wenn es wie alle Räume schön eingerichtet und sauber ist, ist es zu klein. Kleinste Dusche die wir jemals gesehen haben.

Fazit:

Klare Empfehlung!

Tolle Landschaft, sehr freundliche Menschen, schönes Ferienhaus.

@Rosemarie, vielen Dank für die schöne Unterkunft.

Location

Special interest holidays:

The filming of Doc Martin with Martin Clunes has made the village popular for passing tourists. The local and now famous "Fishermans Friends" perform on the Platt to raise money for charity.

Coast/Beach:

The beach in the village is ideal for tranquil activities such as paddling, skimming stones and exploring the rock pools. However for more adventurous activities nearby Polzeath and Watergate Bay offer excellent surfing lessons and hire. Family beaches with calm sea and soft sand can be found only a short distance away at Daymer Bay and Harlyn Bay... great for building sand castles!

Travel:

Newquay airport is only a 30 minute drive from Port Isaac with Exeter airport being the next available airport at 90 mins travel time. Car hire is available at the airport. Trains from Bodmin are aprox 25 mins from Port Isaac, and local buses are frequent to Wadebridge, Rock and Polzeath. Directions to the cottage within the village and full address and post code will be supplied once booking process is complete.

Distances:

Padstow 10 miles.

Tintagel 10 miles.

Rock 6 miles.

Watergate Bay 14 miles.

Eden Project is aprox 40 mins drive.

Further Details:

Local restaurants and pubs offer the finest in fish dishes, with the local fisherman still working from this pretty harbour. The fish market near the harbour sells freshly caught fish daily.

The entertainment on the Platt comes in the form of sea shanties sung by the World Famous ‘Fishermans Friends’, not to be missed on an occasional Friday night! (in the height of the season).

The good work of the RNLI can be appreciated with a visit to the lifeboat house on the Platt. Why not enjoy a 2 minute stroll from the cottage to sit comfortably on the Platt, watch the sea roll in and enjoy a glass of wine or two! Port Isaac touches your heart and once visited is never forgotten.
