Location description from owner

The England region

In the last decade Cornwall has emerged as one of the world's iconic destinations.

From the dramatic coastline of the north to the sheltered bays in the south, from ancient moorland to soft river estuaries, surfers, walkers, sailing buffs, gastronauts and visitors simply seeking a break from a hectic world have discovered a fascinating, vibrant culture, first class accommodation, food to die for and a naturally thrilling adventure playground.

Cornwall has been a natural home to inspiration, art and ideas since the early 19th century. So much so that, apart from London, you'll find nowhere in the whole country that's host to more working artists than Cornwall.

The county's dramatic landscape has also provided the backdrop for many a film and TV production, and nowhere more so than the little fishing village of Port Isaac - which is now synonymous as the fictional Port Wenn in ITV's Doc Martin.

“A Happy Xmas”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2017

A spacious property with plenty of room for all of us (7 and a dog). Owner very helpful and accommodating. Plenty of decent kitchen equipment which managed to produce a respectable xmas lunch. Fab location with short walk to the beach and local Sand Bar....good food here too!! Ideally placed for attractions and several fantastic beaches. The woodburner in the cottage is a bit rickety and could do with some attention and there were a few other little niggles but we had a great deal of fun and walks here for the Christmas period.

“Comfortable Cottage in a great location”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2012

We booked the cottage for a long weekend with friends to use as a base to explore Cornwall. It was in a very convenient location just a short drive or walk away from the major attractions of St Ives, Penzance, St Michael’s Mount etc The living space is quirky and interesting and is more than comfortable to spend a rainy afternoon in. The cottage has good sized bedrooms however the staircase is very narrow so hard suitcases are difficult to manoeuvre. Overall a very enjoyable few days and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the beauty of Cornwall.
