It was absolutely perfect, the weather wasn't great but it didn't spoil the stay at all! It was immaculate throughout and a real home from home feel about it. Port Isaac was only 10 miles away and definitely worth a visit to Doc Martins territory! Tintagel is lovely too and so were the locals. All in all we great time and we can't wait to return.
