About richard phelps

Our family have been coming to Port Isaac since the 1960's.

The first time I came was in 1968 and I remember it well as Manchester United beat Benefica in the European Cup final and we listened to the match on the radio!

I have been to many many places in the world and Port Isaac is one of the best!

Lovely spacious accommodation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week whilst walking the Coastal Path. As a group of six we had plenty of room and the house was very comfortable. The down side was trying to get there with film crews and crowds of people blocking the road. We had to pay for parking and walk down one day as it was impossible to access the street. Beware if you are infirm there are lots of stairs.

Owner's Response: Trish, Thanks very much for the feedback. I'm sorry you had problems accessing the parking at The Manor House one day during the filming of Doc Martin. Strictly speaking, they should stop all filming and let your cars pass. I'm hopeful there won't be any more filming for a number of years. I will edit the welcome notes to residents to advise that if filming is in progress they still have full access to The Manor House - normally the filming crews are very respectful and quick to respond. Best wishes, Richard Phelps

Charming & Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Surprisingly spacious, period house over 4 floors, tastefully decorated with an amazing location 30 seconds from the harbour, pubs etc., and, even more amazing, a garden & parking for several cars (utterly unheard of in Port Isaac). This is our second stay in The Manor House and we love it. The kitchen is very well equipped, the beds are extremely comfortable (3 x 5' doubles & a twin) and we've been able to take our dog both times (collie sized - she stayed on the ground floor in the kitchen/conservatory).There's no shortage of hot water and with 4 bathrooms no queues. Just watch the shower in the very top bedroom ensuite, it's a bit erratic and does the freezing/boiling thing....best for adults not children. Richard, the owner, made some great suggestions for walks along the coast, a truly idilic location.

One of the best self catering holidays we've enjoy

  • 4 of 5

I have visited Cornwall annually for many years with my husband and children and now with my grandchildren. Port Isaac has become our favourite village and this year, for the first time we stayed at the Manor House which is right in the centre of this relaxing resort. Our beds were super comfy and there was plenty of room for us all to be together if we wished (6 of us) or have our own space for a quiet read if we felt like it.. Kitchen was large with plenty of room round the dining table and contents were plentiful and easy to find! Garden was delightful - we made a bit of noise sometimes but no-one complained! My family like to shower but I prefer to relax in a bath and the bath was nice and roomy for an 80+ year old. Never had to worry about hot water as it was constantly available.

Entrance and quaint streets took a bit of manoeuvering but it all added to the holiday and we had no scrapes.

Would have liked a few more pictures/ornaments to give homely feel but all in all we had a truly happy stay. Thank you for making it so.

Lovely family house in Port Isaac

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in The Manor House in the first week of August 2016. There was plenty of accomodation for two adults and three teenage boys (who were grateful to have a room each) and plenty to do in and around the village. Navigating the tight roads in the little seaside port was interesting, with small crowds of tourists gathering at strategic positions to watch the car turn a corner, but parking in the grounds of The Manor was easy.

The boys were in the water most days, kayaking in Port Gaverne and surfing on Polzeath beach were particularly good. The House has every amenity and is clearly well looked after by the owner. A lovely spot.

Great find in Port Isaac

  • 5 of 5

The Manor House is a very comfortable property right in the centre of Port Isaac. My family and I together with our two dogs stayed there over the New Year period. The layout of the property afforded space for everyone. The furnishings were of a high standard and the beds were extremely comfy. Also the property has a garden and a large parking area. The position of the property meant we were in each reach of everything, be it walks, restaurants, pubs and the harbour. Driving through Port Isaac to reach the property can be tricky as the final roadway is rather tight but it is well worth it. We would definitely love to go again.
