The West Country region

Port Isaac with a 600 year history is a truly unspoilt, Cornish fishing village as fans of Doc Martin will have seen from its stunning portrayal in the TV series. Slate hung 18th and 19th century cottages snake down to the harbour with its rock pools and crab fishing with a sea front fish market and aquarium sited in the old Pilchard Cellars. The village has a real feeling of community and is becoming renowned for its surprisingly large number of excellent restaurants, many offering local seafood, whilst there are also good pubs, gift shops and a pottery.

Port Isaac

There are attractions in close proximity to suit all tastes. Expansive family beaches include Polzeath, famous for its surfing with interesting surf and beachwear shops. Daymer Bay features calmer waters a short walk from St Enodoc church, resting place of Sir John Betjeman. Nearby Rock, also on the Camel estuary, is one of the major watersports centres in Cornwall , offering sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing and canoeing.

The Black Tor ferry crosses the estuary from here to Padstow, visible across the water, with a late night water taxi for serious revellers! Visit here Rick Stein's world famous restaurant in a harbour bustling with craft shops, artists studios and real ale pubs. Visitors can hire bicycles from Padstow and cycle along the Camel Trail cycle route to the town of Wadebridge (where bicycles can also be hired). The journey hugs the shoreline of the estuary and is virtually flat so is excellent for family cycling. The many benches along the route offer the opportunity to stop and enjoy its abundance of wildlife. Pleasure, fishing and bird watching trips are available from Rock and Padstow.

Also in striking distance are Boscastle with its famous witchcraft museum and delightful shops and tea rooms, now restored after the tragic flood in 2004 and Tintagel where the legend of King Arthur and his castle still weaves a spell of mystery and magic. The Eden Project, one of the country's top tourist attractions is a 40 minute drive away featuring thousands of plants and fauna from across the globe.

Other attractions include first class golf at Roserrow and at the world famous course at St Enodoc as well as horse riding in Boscastle. For walkers, the South West Coast Path runs the entire length of north Cornwall and as a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty provides some of the most breathtaking cliff top views in the country.

"A perfect cottage in a perfect location"

My wife, myself and 2 friends have just spent another wonderful week in this lovely cosy cottage which is perfectly located at the top of the hill just a few yards away from the steep walk into the vi… More

"What a lovely cosy cottage, so clean and well equipped."

My Husband and I travelled down to Cornwall for a relaxing break and this cottage was perfect for us. It was beautifully decorated and very clean with everything you could hope for in a home from home. It is situated in a prime location for walks and sightseeing and the parking is an absolute bonus. The village of Port Issac is full of good restaurants and pretty (but steep) walks. It was a pleasure to stay here and we hope to return again.
