Dolphin House is a stunning, traditional Cornish Cottage sitting in a lovely position in the heart of Port Isaac, a beautiful medieval fishing village on the North Cornwall coast, with both Nathan Outlaws michellin starred restaurants a few minutes walk, and Padstows restaurants 30 mins drive.

Comfortably accommodating up to 10 people with 2 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, Dolphin House makes the perfect get-away for the whole family.
