Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The picturesque harbour village of Port Isaac nestles between the Camel Estuary and Tintagel on the stunning North Cornwall coast. The area offers exhilarating walks along the coastal path, bike rides along the 10 mile Camel Trail, and safe beaches for both swimming and surfing. Many visitor attractions are within easy driving distance, including Tintagel Castle, the Eden Project and the artists' community of St Ives with the Tate Gallery.
The village of Port Isaac is a famous conservation area and a popular location for film and TV crews. Its narrow streets have featured in the famous Poldark TV series, the film Saving Grace and, more recently in Doc Martin, a new TV series. Local 'colour' is provided with open air performances of the Fisherman's Friends, an accapello singing group, and the weekly parade of the village's brass band. There is good selection of local restaurants, pubs and coffee shops in both Port Isaac and other local villages.
The Scuppers is a 200 year old traditional fisherman's cottage situated in the very heart of picturesque Port Isaac village and just 100m from the harbour, with its bobbing boats, lobster pots and pretty beach of rock pools and sand. Boasting one of the best located gardens in the village, terraced with breath-taking views over the harbour and rooftops - ideal for artists. The cottage has been fully refurbished to provide comfortable, high quality holiday accommodation whilst retaining the original features like exposed beams and open fire.

To celebrate our first year of marriage my husband and I booked a week's break in September at The Scuppers in Port Isaac. We were not disappointed. The Scuppers is a cosy, well equipped fisherman's cottage perched on a hill within the fishing village of Port Isaac. The accommodation is very comfortable and decorated to a high standard. The owners have paid a lot of attention to detail which gives Scuppers a 'home from home' feeling. There is a sun terrace to the rear of the property that is reached by steps and provides a breathtakingly wonderful panaramic view of Port Isaac. The Scuppers is sublime and needs to be experienced to be truly appreciated.
