It's on the harbour with amazing views of the sea from every room. Step outside and you're in the hustle and bustle of beautiful Port Isaac - with lovely quality restaurants cafes and pubs all around. We were a bit worried that Port Isaac was going to be mobbed with all the Doc Martin fame but actually it wasn't like that at all, we were told the summer of course is very different. The cottage itself is lovely and well equipped. It's not luxury modern or anything and is quite rustic but we loved it. The bathroom could do with a bit of an upgrade- the shower was quite poor alternating between scalding hot then cold every few seconds, the tiles need re-grouting etc and there really should be some kind of bath mat to prevent slipping. The only other suggestions to an otherwise glorious place would be to provide handwash in the bathrooms and a handtowel for the wash basins. We had a wonderful week thank you.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
