    Land ahoy in Port Isaac

    Port Isaac is the sort of place you'd expect to encounter a bearded ship's captain, or a salt-washed seadog singing shanties. A real picture of an old Cornish fishing community, it's beset by green hills and a lovely inlet, where the waves of the Celtic Sea slosh to and fro. The village – and it is little more than a village – is packed with cobblestone paths and cosy Port Isaac holiday rentals made of real stone. There's a smattering of tasty seafood kitchens to get through, but not until you've conquered the wild Cornish cliffs that run to mystical Tintagel Castle.

    Port Isaac is the doorway to Cornwall's north

    Hearty seafood and Cornish pubs aside, there's another star draw in Port Isaac – the wild coast that runs to the north-east and south-west. Bracing walks over clifftop meadows in either direction can be about spotting splashing dolphins or whale sharks in the Celtic Sea. Or, you can zip up the wetsuit and hit the waves of Polzeath Beach – a mecca for surfer dudes. You can trample the South West Coast Path to see awesome rock formations like The Rumps and Pentire Head, all bashed by swells and sea spray. And then there's Padstow, a Cornish pasty-lover's dream come true.

    Port Isaac and the magic of Tintagel

    As castles go, Tintagel is surely one of the most enchanting in all of England. Tales of King Arthur and his mystical wizard swirl around its ruined keeps and gatehouses, the bashing waves of the Celtic Sea forever crashing onto the cliffs below. It's a real must-see, sitting just a 3-hour hike on the coastal paths to the north of Port Isaac. For rainy days, a trip down to the charming harbour of Padstow is a good choice. There's a bustling fish market there and the Padstow Museum – a journey of seafaring and Cornish heritage.

    Port Isaac – where summers beckon

    Port Isaac holiday rentals are fit to suit any season. The cosy cottages and little Cornish boltholes can really help you crank up the festive cheer if you're looking for a break in winter months, like December. Spring is perfect for walkers, with the fresh airs of April and May seeing excellent conditions on the coastal paths. Then comes the summer – the most popular season of all. Between June and August, you can expect the mercury to rise regularly to around 20 degrees. The surf schools around Polzeath Beach open and there's loads of al fresco beer gardens to get stuck in to.

    Port Isaac – where the waves hit Cornwall

    Port Isaac is surrounded by some of the wildest and most rugged sections of Cornish coastline there is. It's hardly a surprise that surfers have colonised nearby Polzeath, flocking in their 1000s to hit the big waves that roll in from the Atlantic all year round. Walkers love the reserves of the Trevose Head Heritage Coast and the Hartland Heritage Coast, which mean craggy peninsulas of grass-topped cliffs jutting into the sea. Glimpses of dolphins, seals and even sharks have been reported in those parts.
