Description

Please note that this house is available for Saturday arrivals for a minimum stay of 7 nights only.

Weathered walls welcoming you home. Slate floors cooling the soles of your feet. The twists and turns of staircases calling you up climb higher and seek out sea views. Listen to the whispers of history in this Grade II listed cottage in the heart of Port Isaac.

Whether you’re planning adventures around the wooden dining table or listening to evening tales unfold by the fireside, this pretty cottage is packed with character. And stacks of reasons you won’t want to leave.

Get out on foot and explore the locations from the TV Series Doc Martin (filmed in and around the village) or bob down to the harbour and enjoy a cheeky pint in the pub. Watch the boats and barter with the local fishermen to buy dinner. Or drop a line and catch your own.

There is no parking at Rockpools, you would need to use the Council pay and display car park at the top of the village

Location description from manager

The England region

Port Isaac is a popular fishing village on the North Cornish Coast. With its quaint streets and individual cottages plus beautiful bays and busy fishing harbour, it has always been a sought after attraction for visitors to the area. The village offers a choice of shops, restaurants and pubs which all offer fresh fish daily.

The rugged coastline is spectacular and there are an abundance of coastal paths and walks which explore the beautiful scenery surrounding the village. Situated just a few miles from Port Isaac are the beautiful bays of Port Quin, Polzeath with its famous surfing beach and Roserrow Golf and Country Club and the seaside resort of Rock.

Port Isaac Village

Port Isaac village itself is like stepping back into the past, with stone and slate capped cottages, many bearing names, associated with the sea. These pretty cottages line the narrow paths and lanes, along streets such as Dolphin Street, the haunt of many a Sea Captain and Mariner from the past, to the legendary Temple Bar (Squeezy Belly Alley) which then leads out directly to the welcoming Golden Lion Inn and the beach and harbour.

Port Isaac is the perfect locations for setting out to explore the beautiful North Cornwall coastal walk both to the East and West, protected as they are by the National Trust. The views along the rugged coast and out to the Atlantic must surely rate as some of the finest in the country.

History of Port Isaac

The centre of the village dates from the 18th and 19th centuries, from a time when its riches were linked to local coastal freight and fishing. The port handled cargoes such as coal, wood, stone, salt, pottery and heavy goods which were conveyed along its narrow streets. The pilchard fishery began here before the 16th century and in 1850 there were 49 registered fishing boats and four fish cellars. Although the number of fishing boats has decreased since these times, you will still see Fishermen working from the Platt, landing their daily catch of fish, crab and lobsters.

Port Isaac TV Appearances

Port Isaac has been used a backdrop for many a TV programme and film including the BBC series Poldark which used locations in the area; the BBC drama serial The Nightmare Man was filmed in and around the village, which doubled for a Scottish island, the local village hall has been decorated by the team of DIY SOS, and to date, five series of ITVs Doc Martin have been filmed there although the village has a fictional name of “Portwenn.”

Port Isaacs Fishermans Friends

The Fisherman;s Friends are shanty singers from Port Isaac who have delighted visitors and locals there for more than 15 years, they sometimes perform down on the harbour front on a Friday evening during the summer months. Theres no leader or choir master in the group, they are all friends and fishermans friends they truly are – each and every member of this unique group are have been fishermen, lifeboatmen and coastguards (as well as builders, artisans, hoteliers, and shop keepers) in Port Isaac and known each other since childhood , they were discovered singing in the Platt and signed up by a record company in 2010 and have gone on to release albums and perform at a number of festivals including Glastonbury!

Eating Out in Port Isaac

As well as the pasty and fish and chop shops in the village, there are several restaurants to choose from, whatever your tastes and budgets you'll find something to suit you.

Port Isaac

You may recognise the narrow lanes and wave-beaten coastline of Port Isaac before you even set foot in it. The village plays host to the filming of some familiar BBC dramas, including the much-loved Doc Martin with Martin Clunes. It also now welcomes the cast and crew of the roaringly popular television adaptation of Winston Graham’s Poldark.

If you don’t manage to catch a glimpse of Aidan Turner (Ross), then you’ll be able to find something equally tasty in two Michelin star chef Nathan Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen. This special find serves up fresh, sustainable seafood that pays respect to ‘every fish tail and scale’. Cheers to that.

“Very homely, well equipped holiday cottage.”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

Had a lovely weeks stay in this cottage, that is situated in the heart of Port Issac. Just a few steps from the harbour and the local pub! This cottage is not for the elderly or families with young children (under 3) as steep stairs and the bathroom located on the ground floor, so is a bit of a trek in the middle of the night. The shower was temprimental, as went from hot to cold on several occasions. We did have a power cut affecting the socket circuit on the second night and there was no toilet seat for two days until replaced. It is very homely and well stocked with everything you may need, and was ideally situated. The view from the first and second floors were lovely, looking out onto the harbour and beach. Parking is a bit of a problem, especially unloading suitcases and any shopping. Parking can be paid on a weekly basis (approx £35), however this does not guarantee you of a space and there is a fair walk up a fairly steep climb to the car parking! Very comfortable double bedroom, bunk beds for younger children (not teenagers, as short) and there is a double bed in the attic space, although small staircase up to this and no standing room. Overall, a very pleasant stay and would definitely be going back to Port Issac.
