About the property

House in Pendoggett, Port Isaac, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Village With Local Pub

Upside down living which offers 4 bedrooms downstairs with separate bedroom 5/second tv room upstairs adjacent to huge contemporary open plan living space, the views are so fabulous even washing up is a pleasure! North Cornwall offers so much to everyone - the house is near to surfing beaches, such as Polzeath; the Cornish Coastal Path which is a 30 minute walk from the house along a beautiful woodland valley, the famous town of Rock where you can learn to sail etc.. There you are a stone’s throw away from Padstow and the bars, restaurants and shops it has to offer. Just to our north are the legendary Tintagel and the nearly washed away in the floods of 2004, Boscastle. So much to see and do during your holiday that you can be busy all week or simply sit on the first storey deck overlooking stunning views and watch the world go by. Bliss.

About Emma and John Tumelty

The 3 of us live in rural North Shropshire along with our 4 dogs, horses, cats, sheep, peacocks and chickens. We have holidayed along the North Cornwall coast as a family for years and also as children going back more years than any of us care to remember!

Emma and John Tumelty purchased this house in 2012

Why Emma and John Tumelty chose Pendoggett

This stretch of North Cornish coast has been a favourite for decades. We favour the estuarine beaches of Daymer Bay and Rock for tranquil walking beside a surf free sea but also love the windswept coast paths and crashing Atlantic ocean. Whether you want to surf, stroll or simply chill out this area keeps drawing us back again and again.

Fabulous restaurants and quaint pubs with friendly locals only add to the joy of the area.

What makes this house unique

We chose Port View House because it offered something special, even in the depths of winter being able to enjoy the stunning views out to sea makes it a pleasure to visit, along with a woodburning stove to light and watch the storms roll in. Having a great pub less than a minute away and a footpath right down to the coast made the decision to buy that bit easier.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in April 2018 for a week as a family of 10 ranging from 60+ down to 6 months.

The house is great -i have never seen such large windows which really bring the outside in.

Plenty of space and the site photos are really true to the property. It is very well equipped with anything you could need.

We were lucky with the weather which meant we had an active week walking the coast and enjoying the views and coves.

We visited Tintagel, the lost gardens of Heligan, Rock with a ferry to Padstow, cycled the Camelford trail- bike hire very reasonable.

We walked through the woods to Port Gavern - rather muddy but manageable and discovered Lundy Hole, a lovely cove perfect for rock-pooling with even a cave to go right through!

The local pub is very family friendly with reasonable food.

All in all a lovely week and we'd love to return sometime.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your five star review. I am very glad you found the house spacious and comfortable. The end of this season marks a time when we plan to make some improvements: namely a new kitchen and revitalised sofas to start with - unfortunately we can only do work when we have time between busy rental periods - for instance last winter we had new windows put throughout the property. Thanks again and we hope to welcome you back one day. Best wishes Emma

Beautiful house with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 4 adults and a 12 yr old with 3 dogs. We found the house a pleasure to stay in with all the little things you have at home already there. The open plan living room/kitchen/dinning was the best place to be wether it was sunny you could sit outside and have a BBQ or even when the rain is coming down sideways it's still a pleasure to sit with the log burner on and just watch. The house is in easy reach of port Isaac and port gavern. We also went surfing at Polzeth and ventrured over to Padstow. A great time was had by all, thank you for having us 😊

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Port view certainly has a fabulous view, its in a great location, within easy reach of all the attractions Cornwall has to offer. The house its self is spacious, clean and has everything you need for self catering. The beds were comfortable and bedding spotless, the heating worked well and the log fire in the lounge is a great addition. Id love to give 5 stars for this property but the damp/mould problem throughout the downstairs was unacceptable. If this gets sorted I'd have no hesitation to go back

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are very glad you had a great holiday. The damp problem is being dealt with this winter. We are having new windows put in during November which we hope will very much improve the situation. We had a damp specialist come and give his opinion and he said that the new windows should really help as it is not a rising damp problem. Thanks and I hope we can welcome you back one day. Best wishes Emma and John

Great holiday house for two families and dogs

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week and the house was perfect for all of us. Great living space upstairs - with fantastic views. Really comfortable beds and good location for exploring this area of Cornwall. Our favourite days were walking along Daymar Bay when the tide was out and around to Rock - where we sat outside in the sun at the Mariner's Inn (Nathan Outlaw's pub) - which served fantastic food. Coastal walk from Lundy Bay around to Port Quinn is worth doing (with coffee and cake served from old Citroen van). Thank you Emma and John - a great holiday!

There are great seafood restaurants in the area such as Paul Ainsworth's No.6 in Padstow and Outlaw's Fish Kitchen in Port Isaac both of which are in Tatler's Restaurant Guide 2015 and are seriously good. Booking recommended.

Too many good pubs and eateries in Port Isaac and nearby villages to mention!
