Arabia Cottage is located approximately 200 yds from the harbour and beach in the traditional fishing village of Port Isaac. Port Isaac consists of a fascinating jumble of old cottages and houses clustered around a beautiful sheltered harbour, sitting between steep hills to all sides. There are many small lanes and alleyways to explore in the old part of the village, which has kept its original charm and character and is unspoilt by commercialism. The village is regularly used as a location for film and television, and was the location for the television series 'Doc Martin'. It is also home to Port Isaac 'Fishermas Friends' who occasionally perform on the harbour during the summer.

You will be spoilt for choice for places to eat in Port Isaac, with its excellent pubs, restaurants - including Nathan Outlaws Fish Kitchen - and take aways. Self-caterers are also well provided for with bakeries, fish cellars by the quay, and a small co-op at the top of the hill.

Arabia Cottage is a traditional Cornish cottage which has been extensively renovated and furnished to a very high standard. No expense has been spared and no corners cut in making this an ideal base for your holiday. The downstairs features an open plan kitchen, living and dining area and the upstairs has three bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is also a 'studio' which is accessed via the garden containing a large sofa, tv and playstation to keep teenagers happy. The typically Cornish terraced garden has a variety of well-stocked borders and provides wonderful views over the village and harbour and out to sea.

The Cornwall region

North Cornwall is home to some of the most beautiful coastline in England, with a wide range of sandy beaches and miles of walking along the coast paths. One of Cornwalls most famous attractions, the Eden Project, is approximately 45 mins drive.

Port Isaac

The popular town of Padstow is about 1/2 hour by car, or it can be reached via the ferry at Rock. The surfing beach of Polzeath is a couple of miles along the coast in one direction with the beautiful beach at Trebarwith Strand in the other. Port Isaac itself is a beautiful village to walk around, with a jumble of narrow lanes and alleys. It is home to several galleries displaying work by local artists and has plenty of places to eat, ranging from excellent restaurants to an equally excellent fish & chip takeaway.

"Love the cottage, love Port Isaac"

Port Isaac is such a cute little village with a cute little cottage. We were maybe a little cavalier on the hilliness of the place (elderly collie struggled) but beautiful and the views from the cosy cottage gorgeous.

A couple of things we'd point out:
- info on where the coop/nearest shop out of season would have been useful
- be aware that there is no mobile reception in the village
- a couple of dirty/chipped crockery items

But we still loved it. Perfect for my husband's birthday weekend with our dogs.

"Delightful property, delightful location."

Arabia cottage was just what it said on the tin, and more! Our weather wasn't kind and the lashings of hot water and cosy heating was wonderful to return to after walking the coastal path. The locals were extremely friendly and helpful and there was plenty to do in the area, we particularly enjoyed the Camel Trail, Padstow, Tintagel and the Castle Hotel , and the Eden Project could have filled two days, if we had had them! The only word of caution we would have, to enjoy fully the studio (lovely views and ambience) and the top garden remember the steps, anyone elderly might have difficulties! Brilliant all round for us, though.
