Pleased to hear that you loved Port Isaac and the cottage. Both are cosy places. For a longer stay, in better weather there are several places to visit in Cornwall, all pretty accessible.
Best wishes Christine D.

“Fantastic place to stay, thank you.”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed in this cottage for 4 nights and had a great break. Firstly the location is perfect, right in the centre of Port Isaac, great for a stroll and potter or a coastal walk. It was also really good value for money. The village itself is charming with wonderful views from the headlands and around the village itself. There are some interesting shops and great places to eat and drink. The cottage itself was great and had everything we wanted. The beds were comfy and it was lovely to be away from it all in such a cosy and welcoming cottage. We felt so at home by the end we didn't want to leave! Christine the owner was also really helpful. Thank you for our lovely stay, hopefully we'll be back soon.

Just returned from a weeks holiday based in this cute little cottage in Port Isaac. Other reviews very accurate - small but all you need. We were just 2 but there's another bedroom on top floor where 2 little ones could sleep. Might feel a squeeze with 4 fully grown adults but if all you need is a base then do-able. Bring towels, hand soap etc. There was washing up liquid there but could have been left by the last people. Nearest convenience store is Co-op, right back up the very steep hill, maybe 10 min walk? Advice would be to stop by on way back in the car after a day out.

Brilliant location - Mote Restaurant and Outlaws literally seconds around the corner and of course the harbour right there. We have friends and family in Cornwall so travelled a fair bit but other than Port Isaac itself, locally, Port Quin and its coastal walks are a must. Even smaller than Port Isaac (only a hotel there) but a nice little beach area and the cliff top walks (you can google the walks - we did the shorter 3 ish mile one as I'm pregnant at the moment). Views were stunningly beautiful. Just incredible. Love the North Coast of Cornwall (I grew up more west cornwall but lived in North cornwall for a time and the North is more spectacular!).

We didn't choose Port Isaac due to the Doc Martin thing so we didn't do the tour (£10 each) but you can buy a leaflet in what they use as the 'pharmacy' in the show (Buttermilk shop in reality) for £1.50 which gives you a map of the village and all the locations so we just walked around spotting them. Apparently the tour is quite good though as you tend to get a history of the village at the same time. Think it's a 90 min tour.

Only down side to the cottage really was the seating - if you are in for one of the evenings the seating is very 'up right' so no slouching here! Could do with more of a sofa though appreciate there's lack of space.

Overall loved it and would return to Port Isaac and re book this cottage. Owner very helpful prior to holiday over a couple of things too.

Thank you for the review. We are very fond of the cottage. Even my 6'4" tall husband loves it. Just make sure in the kitchen you stand upright between the beams if you are that height!

Just returned from a lovely stay at Port Isaac. This cottage is perfect. Right in the heart of the village by the harbour, pubs, fresh fish shop and restaurants. Having the parking space was a god send. They were filming Doc Martin when we were there which was fun to watch. Yes no shower but as others have said we knew that. Owner very helpful.

Many thanks for the kind words. Port Isaac is a delightful place.
The lack of a shower is a problem in these times, but the cottage is old and plumbers have a disinclination to quote for an installation. Lack of pressure seems to be the problem.

We had a lovely 3 night stay here and really loved it. Could of stayed longer. The kids loved being able to go to the beach when ever they wanted to as it was so close. You felt like you were part of the Dr Martin film set as you are surrounded by all the sights from the show. Parking is up at the old school which is very close to the house. If you do not have much luggage then park there and walk down. It is possible to park outside the cottage to do a luggage drop, this is a bit more challenging but do able. (as long as your car is not too big). The cottage is very small but that is what makes it so cute and full of character. No shower but we knew that. Comfortable beds and nice and quiet. Home owner very helpful and quick at answering emails.
