From the owner

The cottage is in the heart of Port Isaac about 50 yards from the harbour. It is up a narrow cul de sac with very little passing traffic. The front door opens off the lane with a stable door. On the ground floor is a living room and a separate kitchen. On the first floor is a bedroom and bathroom, with the second bedroom on the second floor. Both bedrooms have only single beds due to the difficulty of getting beds up the cottage stairs.
The cottage is part of a row of non identical properties.
It is all electric and provided with a fridge with freezer box, cooker, toaster, iron and all other kitchen implements. There is night storage heating with free standing heaters for back up if required.
There is television and a land line phone with broadband and wi-fi.
Visitors are able to drive up to the cottage for the purposes of loading and unloading luggage. For parking we have a reserved space about 300 yards away at The Old School Hotel which overlooks the harbour.
The village is the setting for the Doc Martin tv series. It is a traditional fishing village and has been since the Middle Ages. It is a maze of narrow lanes and pathways known as "drangs" with only one road through, along which traffic is discouraged. The houses are traditional stone built, slate hung cottages. In the heart of the village are a pub, two hotels, two cafe / bistros. There are other pubs and a cafe at the top of the village.
There is a bakery, delicatessen, fishmongers and a well stocked Coop supermarket. Fish may also be bought from the local fishmerchants in the fish cellars by the harbour. There are also the usual art and craft shops.
Those interested in fishing may hire a local boat and fisherman. Kyacking may be arranged in the village.
The National Trust coastal path runs through the village and provides spectacular walks over the cliffs.
Many places of interest are in easy reach. Pencarrow House, Tintagel, The Eden Centre, the Gardens of Heligan along with many others. Padstow is close by with its many restaurants and attractions. It can be visited by the foot ferry from Rock and trips may be made out to sea, with puffins on the nearby islands at the right time of year.
At Rock there are excellent beaches and boats may be hired from the sailing school along with windsurfers.
Other good sandy beaches are at Polzeath and Trebarwith, both of which are centers for windsurfing. There is also Daymer Bay, from where it is just a short walk to St. Enedoc church where Sir John Betjeman is buried.
Wadebridge has shops of interest and makes a pleasant wander round.

Central location. Loved the place, waited until we rebooked before we reviewed. Enough said. Parking was close. First breakfast was crab from the harbour nearby.
