Characterful Cottage In The Heart Of Historic Port, With Superb Harbour Views



Updated: 23-Oct-2016
Cottage in Port Isaac, Cornwall, England - Situated Perfectly To Explore The Beaches, Coves And Walks Of Cornwall's Spectacular North Coast

Located in the historic and unspoilt fishing village of Port Issac, this charming fisherman's cottage perfectly represents all that is Cornish. In the heart of the narrow streets and winding alleys which snake up the hillside behind, the cottage offers stunning views across the harbour and spectacular north coast. Entering through a stable door, the cottage has been renovated and stylishly furnished throughout. Step into the seaside inspired open plan living space full of retained character, yet sympathetically renovated with beautiful exposed beams and slate tiled floor. The wood-effect stove ensures cosy, relaxing evenings, whatever the weather. The petite bijoux galley kitchen is fully equipped, and with an array of freshly caught seafood landing in Port Isaac daily there are plenty superb dining options whatever your preference. Stairs from the living space lead up to a stunning bedroom and minimalist en-suite bathroom. Wake up to the sound and sight of the sea, with unspoilt views across the harbour. From the cottage amble down to the Platt and watch the fisherman at work. Try out the numerous restaurants and cafes or climb up the steep path for breath-taking views of the rugged coastline. Port Gaverne and its sheltered beach is only a short walk away. It is the perfect place on a summers evening when you can often spot people fishing off the rocks and barbecuing, watching the sun set across the sea.

If booked for the dates you require please see The Hayloft E9277 our studio adjacent to our house 2 miles from Port Isaac with garden and parking.

About the Owner

My family and I live here in North Cornwall with our Golden retriever Rocket and cat. Lured by the fabulous beaches and outstanding scenery we moved down from Salisbury last year. The area has so much to offer from natural beauty to fantastic restaurants and historic houses and gardens. I work part time as primary school teacher and my husband busies himself with various projects around the home and garden.

Our first holiday let was The Hayloft, which is a cosy studio apartment above our garage, that has proved very popular in its first year. Following its success and our enjoyment in meeting guests we have purchased Homestead in Port Isaac, a quaint old fisherman's cottage. Both properties provide brilliant bases to explore all the North Cornwall area has to offer.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday, the cottage was just perfect! Spotlessly clean, everything you needed, very cosy and a scrummy cream tea was waiting for us on arrival! What more could you ask for. This was our first visit to Port Isaac and would definately return and definately return to the cottage! Nathan Outlaws fish kitchen was brilliant, we went for the taster menu which was delicious and well worth the money. Also we enjoyed the foot ferry from Rock to Padstow, lovely day out, carpark is a stones throw from where you catch it.

Cosy, clean and well laid out cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had another super holiday in Port Isaac. The cottage, as always, was immaculate. The cottage is situated in the perfect location for the village, walks and fantastic views. Scilla was very welcoming and the cream tea was delicious.This was our third visit and it never fails to impress. We will be back again next year!

tiny but superb cottage with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this tiny cottage, located right in the hart of wonderful Port Isaac. The view from the bedroom is fantastic, the cottage is just big enough for two and it looks great. When you combine all that with very friendly hosts and an extremely reasonable price, this cottage offers extreme value for Money. Only thing missing is Wi-Fi. This is especially problematic beacause there is virtually no cell reception in Port Isaac.

Cosy little Cottage Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Immaculately clean recently renovated cottage

Lovely comfy bed.

Ideal centrall location with good sea view from bedroom

Perfect for a stress free holiday for a couple.

Home made cream tea waiting for us was a lovely personal touch.

Nice selection of eating out options available within walking distance.

The only negative is no parking at property., but we had no problem parking at local pay & display car park.

Would definitely recommend a stay in the cottage.

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a super week in Port Isaac. The cottage was everything we had hoped it would be. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The location was perfect, stunning views and lovely walks. Dog friendly area, which suited us and our westie! Great fish and chips from the takeaway up the road. Met Martin Clunes when they were filming in nearby Port Gaverne - bonus!!! Cannot say anything negative about the cottage or the location. Thank you.

Excellent cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is great, small but perfectly formed and of ample size for 2 people, with plenty of wardrobe space. All furnishing and bedding are top quality and the muti-purpose oven is easy to use in all it's formats. The location is perfect, in the heart of an idylic fishing village with pubs and restaurants literally yards away and close to beautiful coastal walks. Doc Martin was filming whilst we were there and we enjoyed watching filming and seeing the cast members walking past our window and in pubs and restaurants. It felt like we were in an episode to Doc Martin. Fantastic holiday, cannot stress how good this cottage is. We will definitely be returning,
