Delightful Period Cottage in the Heart of the Fishing Village

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Oct-2016
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.

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!

Location

Activity and Interests

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.
