About the Owner

Tideway has been owned by the Ashley Family since 1999 and over this time it has been lovingly renovated. It started out quite basic with old rattling storage heaters and constant problems with hot water but we have invested lots of time (and money!), so now the house is lovely and warm all year long, has tonnes of hot water and makes for a great family holiday home. We have let our house for 4 consecutive years to the Buffalo Productions crew who make Doc Martin so its been a very busy property over the years.

This will be our 3rd season of letting the house myself and I've been able to lower our prices to direct guests via Owners Direct.

Fabulous holiday house

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, perfect for everyone from small children (2 boys, aged 2 & 3) to the grandparents (70+). Downstairs kitchen/living space very well equipped with lovely patio garden for the many bbqs we had. Quiet grown up lounge ideal for when it got a little noisy. Great to be walking distance to the habour and beach. Already rebooked for next year.

Excellent accommodation, great location

  • 5 of 5

Great house and facilities, plenty of room for our extended family of 10, and space for own time. Excellent location, within 5 minutes of harbour, restaurants, pubs and shops. Parking for one car, but no problem as plenty of space nearby. Owner extremely helpful. Strongly recommend.

Great place for a small reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented Tideway for a week for a reunion with some old Oxford University friends. We were three families and with Kate's permission we went one over the usual accommodation limit, so there were 11 of us; three couples and five children.

The house was perfect, as was Port Isaac. The rooms are spacious and the communal areas very well equipped. The location is also great - in a scenic part of the town but not a zone swamped by day tourists, and it is close to amenities such as the well-stocked Coop and village car park.

Kate was excellent with the communication, which was appreciated as we booked the house from New Zealand where we now live.

Port Isaac has a lot of charm. We have enjoyed watching Doc Martin since we returned, recognising places we visited, but the town has other things going for it. These include a small working fishing fleet, a welcoming pub and a good local band (The Fishermens' Friends) who gave a charity concert on the wharf the night before we left. We even bumped into "Bert" who was as affable and warm-hearted in real life as on TV.

The main purpose of the stay was to get-together with friends who we can only gather together every 4 or 5 years, and we would have had a good time just hanging out wherever we were, but Tideway really contributed to it being a great experience, so thanks Kate!

Practical info: there is only parking for one car at the house and if you have more they will need to be in the village car park (not an issue for us). There's no need to bring food etc as the Coop is well-stocked and there are plenty of place to eat in the town.

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is utterly lovely (and don't be fooled by the external photo, it's huge with another storey below because it's on a hill). All of the rooms are very tastefully decorated and have plenty of space for large groups or families to spread out. The large kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need and is well laid out, allowing cooking and socialising to happen simultaneously. It was fantastic cottage to base a wonderful holiday in Cornwall from. Plenty of nice places to eat in the area, outdoor activities to find, beaches to relax on and interesting places to visit.

Perfect location, lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Tideway. We are regulars to Port Isaac, enjoying the classic beauty of this traditional fishing village and the areas surrounding it, and this cottage is the best we have stayed in. The cottage is deceptively large (over 4 levels), easily accommodating 2 couples and various children and grandchildren. We spend most of our time on the lower floor, cooking up fresh local seafood and eating together, then watching the cows on the hills on the other side of the bay and the birds go by from the privacy of the patio area. The beds are comfortable, with lovely fresh linen, and the rooms are beautiful - tastefully decorated, large and airy.

The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay, It is perfectly situated at the top of the hill, easy walking distance to both Port Isaac and Port Gaverne. We are already looking at dates for next year..

easter break

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Tideway, having enjoyed our holiday there last year, we had no hesitation in re booking again for this year. The house is roomy and very comfortable and well equipped, plenty of space for our family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers. The house is tastefully decorated, very clean and well maintained, and with this years addition of a large dormer window on the top floor room, providing a great view of the village and harbour below, it is even better than last year!

The sunny private patio area is a delightful spot to enjoy morning coffee or al fresco breakfast or barbecue, and the parking area at the front of the house is a big advantage over some other houses in the village where parking could be a real problem i imagine.

The house is situated in the heart of the village and it is just a few minutes walk to the pretty harbour with its pubs and restaurants, and barely a ten minute walk in the other direction to Port Gaverne which we found to be a pleasant place to have a drink while watching the sun set over the harbour.

All in all we had a fun and relaxing week at Tideway, we even managed to watch the filming of a scene for "Doc Martin" that was taking place a few yards down the hill.

Prior to and during our stay, Kate sent messages to ensure that all was well and that the house was to our requirements, and I would not hesitate to recommend Port Isaac and Tideway in particular as a place to enjoy a happy holiday in comfortable surroundings.

Location

From the Owner

Our house has been hugely improved over the years - hot water and heating systems work well, the kitchen is very well kitted out, the TV's are all news and the beds are comfy. All the bedding (duvets pillows etc ) are very new and I invested in luxurious Egyptian cotton from The White Company which is a real treat. Last year we completed a brand new dormer window at the top of the house giving great views down into the village. Wifi - of course !

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Port Isaac is located in North Cornwall close to the surf beaches of Polzeath and Trebarwith Strand. These beaches are amongst the best in Britain and have Lifeguard presence. Several surf schools operate from here including Surfs Up and Wavehunters. There are also quiet family style beaches nearby Daymer Bay and Trevone plus many more. The coastal walks around this part of Britain are incredible, NT owns and preserves most of the North Cornish coast and it still feels wild and rugged and very unspoilt. The SW coastal path runs right through the village and a popular walk for the energetic is from Port Isaac to Port Quinn and back.. the round trip will take about 2.5 hours and by then you have definitely earned your cornish pasty lunch.

Coast/Beach:

The house is a few minutes walk to both the beaches of Port Isaac and also Port Gaverne. Port Gaverne is a lovely quiet, perfect place for rock pooling with a nice pub for lunch.

Travel:

Nearest train station - Bodmin Parkway, 35 minutes drive.

Nearest airport - Newquay, around a 40min drive.

Distances:

10 miles from Wadebridge

15 miles from Padstow (or nearer if you drive to Rock and take the ferry)

Further Details:

Tideway is a few minutes walk from a Co-op store which is very well stocked with holiday makers essentials. We also have some great cafe's and shops very close to our house. Fresh From The Sea, is a cafe and seafood deli, selling delicious fresh crab, lobster & mussels and the other is Ruby Tuesday which sells delicious breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas. Nathan Outlaw has also opened up in Port Isaac this year, its superb ! ...book early to make sure you get a table ! We also love going to The Mote, down in the village and right next to the harbour.

Port Isaac village also has a big GP surgery although the nearest pharmacy is Wadebridge.

Facilities

From the Owner

As a family we like to be outdoors ! We love body boarding and surfing and the little ones love paddling in the rock pools so Port Isaac and the North Cornish coast is the perfect location for our summer adventures. Our favourite beach is Trebarwith Strand which always seems to have great waves as well as a lovely cafe and little shop selling yummy hot doughnuts! .From Port Isaac you can head over to Rock for sailing or grab the ferry over to Padstow or cycle the Camel Trail which is a gorgeous scenic route, its quite a popular activity but deservedly so. Port Isaac is brilliantly positioned as its very near to Trebarwith Strand, and Polzeath but also ideally positioned for some of the best parts of the North Cornwall coastal path (the stretch from Port Isaac to Port Quinn is really stunning). When you combine all this with a fishing village complete with pubs, shops and restaurants its an amazing combination. We hope you will enjoy a trip to Port Isaac as much as we do.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: There is parking directly in front of the house, this makes it very easy to quickly arrive or leave and you are not having to be held up in traffic jams down to the harbour !. From the patio garden there is a safe picket style fence and access via a large gate with steps onto Back Hill. Sorry, no dogs and no smoking. Outside: Sunny patio garden with paved terrace and large wooden picnic table and parasol. BBQ for guest use. The patio is very sheltered and a real sun-trap and has views towards the harbour and Roscarrock. There is an outside tap and water butt to wash out wet suits and gear from the beach. We have put up a new and very safe picket fence to keep little ones safe with a big gate and then steps down onto Back Hill. This makes an interesting alternative route into and out of the house and you can have fun exploring the many small streets of old Port Isaac via this back route....a much quieter and more fun route back home from the harbour. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All bedlinen, bathmats and tea-towels are provided. (Linen is Egyptian Cotton from The White Company...brand new !) Guests provide their own towels and beach towels. Full clean of the property every week, full change of linen every week. Other: The dining room has a large table and in built seating great for a big dinner party !
