About the Owner

We are a Devon based family and love to escape to Cornwall whenever we can. We have two teenage boys (now 17 and 18) and have been enjoying Cornish breaks with them since they were born, initially starting off in a caravan. Our older children love it too and have started to introduce it to their own children.

Lovely cosy cottage in perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

What a great week we have just had at Temple Cottage. A cottage full of character in a fabulous location only a minutes walk from the harbour and restaurants. Our children loved exploring the harbour in the evenings whilst we took our own wine and cushions down to the harbour to enjoy the sunset. I can highly recommend this property, perfect family base at a competitive price. A trip to Trebarwith Strand is well worth it if you are into body boarding, thanks for some great memories :)

Our stay in the cottage was wonderful, Jacki has thought of everything from picnic chairs to body boards everything for your use. It is such a cosy and welcoming place,very clean and with the most amazing hanging baskets outside the front door. This is the reason for my comment that this cottage has plenty of love within as so much thought has gone into it for the guests enjoyment

From the Owner

We fell in love with the ruggedness of Port Isaac on a day trip from the campsite we were staying at when the boys were babies. We decided we would like to own a house in the harbour and completely fell in love with Temple Cottage as soon as we stepped inside. We have owned it for 11 years.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Newquay at 15 Miles Nearest Barpub : Port Isaac at 200 Metres Nearest Ferry : Plymouth at 45 Miles Nearest Golf : Rock, St Endellion, Daymer Bay at 6 Miles Nearest Train : Bodmin at 10 Miles Nearest Motorway : Exeter (M5) at 65 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Port Isaac at 200 Metres Nearest Ski : Plymouth dry ski slope at 45 Miles Nearest Beach : Port Isaac at 200 Metres Car: necessary

Port Isaac is a picturesque unspoilt working fishing harbour, situated in a small cove between steep cliffs, on the north coast of Cornwall. The village has narrow alleys and streets of whitewashed cottages and the beach is safe for swimming, crabbing and rock pooling. There are traditional pubs selling local beers and good food, and several restaurants of good local reputation, as well as gift shops, a pottery, a fudge/ice cream shop, a Cornish pasty shop and an excellent fresh fish cellar, with a small aquarium run by the fishermen.You can relax on the beach and watch the fishermen bringing in their day's catch, or you may even like to join in with them singing their popular sea shanties on the beach on a summer's evening. For the more energetic, you may enjoy the many cliff top walks, taking in the beautiful rugged scenery. Local attractions include surfing at Polzeath, the calm waters of Daymer Bay, sailing at Rock, a ferry to Padstow, and Tintagel, Boscastle and the Eden Project.

Other Activities: Cycling on the Camel Trail (a disused railway), Coasteering, Kayaking

Temple Cottage is located in the quiet pedestrian only Dolphin Street and is only seconds from the beach/harbour. On reaching Port Isaac on the B3267, you will see a Co-op on your right (a good place to get supplies), then turn left down into the harbour. Follow the road right down to the bottom and around to the right in front of the cafe and find somewhere to temporarily park and unload. The cottage is at the end of SqueezeBelly Alley (which is to the left of the cafe) on the right, or walk up Middle Street (next to the Lifeboat Station) and turn first left into Dolphin Street, passing 3 houses on the left.

Our parking space is at the top of the village in the old garage which is opposite Trelawney Garage on the road towards Port Gaverne. Our space is outside and to the left of the building and is signed. It is only a short walk from the cottage and can be reached by walking up the road past the shops or by the cliff footpath and then through the council car park.

From the Owner

The cottage is cosy and peaceful and on a winter's night there is nothing better than getting a good fire roaring. We have installed Sky TV and wi-fi to keep you in touch with the outside world if necessary! The sound of seagulls and the crashing waves and the smell of salty sea-weedy air is a real tonic, as are the cliff walks and stopping for a drink and a chat in a local pub.
