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!
richard phelps purchased this cottage in 2014

What makes this cottage unique
Parking in the old village in Port Isaac is a major benefit and very rare! The location is superb - spacious and private. Garden large bordered by River Leat. Manor House and cottage recently tastefully refurbished with luxury, rustic finish.
A 25% deposit is required to book the property and the balance paid up to 8 weeks before arrival. Up to 2 well behaved pets are welcome at a charge of £35 per pet. A deposit of £500 (£200 for The Manor House Cottage) is required and will be repaid no later than 72 hours after departure (provided no breakages/damage). Please note the property is strictly no smoking. Notes on price:
Prices are for the property per week in UK Pounds. Short breaks sometimes available - 3 nights at 75% of weekly rate due to high 'set up' costs.
Changeover day is normally a Saturday, thigh can be flexible. Departure is at 10am and arrival at 4pm

Booked the sail loft to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary. Really great accomodation, booking was so easy and Richard the owner was very helpful. We would love to stay here again next year.
A charming loft in the heart of Port Isaac. Comfortable and quiet with a beautiful garden, the Sail Loft had everything that we needed. I highly recommend it for any couples wishing to stay in Port Isaac.
An idyllic Cornsh fishing village,just perfect!
The Loft- style apartment has been tastefully created in a building steeped in Cornish character in the perfect location of the fishing village.We felt immediately relaxed with views of the beautiful white-washed cottages and a colourful autumnal garden. The owner recommended walks , the highlights of which included seal spotting on the coastal paths and following the valley stream inland through the Cornish countryside. We can't wait to return!
Excellent Location for Exploring Port Isaac
When we travel we always stay in self catering apartments. We shop and cook as if we were at home. Therefore a fully equipped kitchen is of prime importance. The only item that my husband would have liked would be a four cup drip coffee maker.
To be fair we found this amenity in only one of the seven accommodations we rented during our 25 day vacation in the UK. The kitchen is very well equipped.
The apartment was very clean and well furnished. The wall of windows provided light as well as good ventilation. There were flowers, wine and treats to greet us. Much appreciated!
We suggest leaving your luggage on the main level as the spiral stairs are difficult to negotiate with even a carryon size luggage.
Parking on location was a real find in Port Isaac where free parking is non existent. Driving through the narrow streets can be a challenge. Compact cars are preferable.
We are fans of the program "Doc Martin". Luckily they were filming one of the days during our visit.
We enjoyed our visit to Port Isaac and our stay in Sail Cottage.
The one drawback to this accommodation is that you must drive 20 minutes on very narrow roads to another town to pick and then drop off the keys on arrive and departure. We found this to be a real nuisance. Other accommodations we used in the UK had key safes on site which were much more convenient.
Because of the this key situation we would probably not return to Sail Cottage.
An Enjoyable Stay.
We had a pleasant and comfortable stay at the Sail Loft for six days in May. It was good to have space to park at the property and one afternoon we just relaxed in the garden, also a bonus. Two days were spent looking round the village and we had meals at the Slipway Hotel and the Krab Pot, both of which we enjoyed.
Beautiful Central Cottage
Just back from 3 nights at the Sail Loft. Beautifully and tastefully modernised, the cottage is very central - just seconds from the harbour. I especially loved how light it was - a real find!
