"Lovely property in beautiful location"
This 5 bed house was built in 1722! The stairs and floors,walls etc have a quirky slant to them that goes with a property nearly 300 years old. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore. The house has a w… More
Thank you for taking the time to review Dolphin House. Im glad you had an almost perfect time, and the house was large enough for your party, and particularly that you mention the children loved playing in the walled garden. Im sorry you thought some of the furniture a little shabby, we think the items fit well with a 300 year old house which we tey to keep up to date but aim for comfortable and cosy, cottage feel but with modern equipment. It is a difficult balance to hit. We are about to swap a few items so maybe theyll include the ones you thought not quite up to the mark. I hope you return, theres always a discount for return guests somplease advise when enquiring - some guests have returned for 15 years+

"An enjoyable place for a large family stay"
There is plenty of space in the house and David Brown has ensured that just about everything has been supplied for all ages to stay. The place was clean and tidy. The only problem we had was access wi… More
Thanks so much, Im really glad you had an enjoyable time and Dolphin House and you consider I provide everything that is required. Good idea on map I will do, I usually do provide directions and you have to be wary of older sat navs on some of the narrowest roads in Cornwall. Hope you consider another family holiday at DH. Dave

"Fantastic Historic House right in Port Isaac - Brilliant"
Felt like home away from home, just parked up and walked around the village, sea shore and tracks out of Port Isaac, a relaxing holiday… More
Exactly as we do, no need to leave the lovely charms of Port Isaac once there, unless you choose to walk to the metropolis of Port Gaverne!

"A great house for family holiday in a great location"
We stayed for a week at the end of August 13 with 6 adults and 4 young children, A great time was had by all. Situated in the town centre with access to the harbour, good restaurants a fresh fish mark… More
Thank you do much, its really fab when new friends / clients enjoy Port Isaac and particularly Dolphin House as much as we do. Great point about us tall folk and the fish cellars for great fresh fish pulled out of the sea often right by the cellars from local boats that still work the harbour as they have for centuries. Perhaps id replace Town Centre for Village Centre, but I appreciate your excellent comments. Thanks again, hope you return next year, I think our most regular family have been renting now for ten years or so, they replaced a family who have now moved to the Outer Hebrideas and were continuous renters for about 14 years.

We spent a wonderful week here with our kids.The location is fantastic with the harbour (and pub) a literal stone's throw away. The house itself is very spacious for such a tightly packed village… More
Thanks Kerry, glad you all liked it and filled your time so well(!) - the view from the pub balcony is indeed fabulous.
thanks for the comments on the house, everyone thinks it is so comfy I pleased to say. I always advise guests to drop the sat nav once you enter Por Isaac or Port Gaverne as otherwise some SatNavs take you down roads that become a few feet wide.

"A Real Chill Out to recharge"
Dolphin House is a truly lovely property set in an unspoilt cornish fishing village. When it says five bedrooms - they are all really generous sized rooms and 10 people can stay here without ever fee… More
im liking holidaylettings and the feed back which we have had almost 100% positive over the years, but its been confined to the guest's book in the dining room so not for public viewing. We have many regular visitors, indeed one couple travelled from the North East for 9 years on the trot until they moved to The Highlands - often quoted by another regular family is their need for the "Annual Dolphin House fix"!

"A lovely property full of character in the heart of a charming village."
This is the nicest holiday lets we have stayed in, The house was lovely and clean and had everything you need for your stay. It is in a fantastic location in the heart of the village with plenty of places to eat/drink within walking distance. Our 8 year old happily entertained himself in the garden and loved looking for things in the rock pools that appear when the tide is out. The location is ideal for exploring all of Cornwall. During our stay we did have a small plumbing problem, but this was quickly rectified by the lovely lady who looks after the property for the owner and it did not impact on our holiday. We would highly recommend to all.
thank you for your kind comments, Im glad you enjoyed your revisit to Dolphin House, hope to welcome you back soon
