Location description from owner

The England region

Port Isaac is a popular fishing village on the North Cornish Coast. With it's 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 it's famous surfing beach and Roserrow Golf and Country Club and the seaside resort of Rock.Port Isaac VillagePort 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 IsaacThe 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 AppearancesPort 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 ITV's Doc Martin have been filmed there although the village has a fictional name of “Portwenn.”Port Isaacs Fishermans FriendsThe 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. There's no leader or choir master in the group, they are all friends and fisherman's 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 IsaacAs 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. Some of the restaurants include the following:The Edge Restaurant The Mote Bar and Restaurant The Slipway The Golden Lion Inn Port Gaverne Restaurant.
