Places to holiday in Port Isaac, Cornwall

Beyond rolling green hills, Port Isaac sits in a small valley next to the harbor with whitewashed buildings, holding charming narrow streets. Streets are so narrow locals refer to some as “Squeezebelly Allies.” Much of the community is reminiscent of its records dating back seven centuries with lobster pots sitting next to its coastal waters. So timeless is this seaside community that it was the backdrop for the popular television series Doc Martin.

Ocean waters are full of opportunities to take in this seaside environment while fishing and sailing, as well as water skiing and on strenuous treks. Simply relaxing in any of Port Isaac’s guest homes and self catering cottages is a great way to enjoy the environment.

Local restaurants have fresh seafood caught and delivered daily. Port Isaac pubs are an enticing way to sip a pint while sharing the day’s adventures. Port Isaac is also home to several galleries showcasing the work of local artisans who beautifully reflect the community in paintings. Other galleries display the pottery of community artists.

Things to do in Port Isaac, Cornwall

Longcross Victorian Garden, the only garden with public access on this part of the coast, grows unique species of plants due to its salty seaside environment. A maze design wanders through the garden. History outside the garden is no further away than Tintagel Castle. This castle sits on an island which is visible from many parts of Port Isaac, giving it a mystical appearance. Dating back to the late 1130’s, local legend states this was the location of King Arthur’s conception.

Coastal waters are also enjoyable while listening to the activity of fishing boats in the harbor or relaxing in any of Port Isaac’s guest houses and self catering cottages. Beaches like Port Gaverne are restful at low tide with a small area of many rock pools. Port Quin is equally popular, not as a sunbathing beach but an area which provides respite while enjoying a picnic or sitting on the coastline. This same coastline is equally enjoyed when chartering a boat. Riding on the water is a wonderful way to take in the communities stunning views.

For a bit more mystery, consider the village of Port Quin, referred to by locals as “the village that died.” Legend says the entire population of men disappeared in the 1800’s, creating an interesting visit. Take a coastal drive to the other small neighboring communities of Rock, Polzeath, Wadebridge and Padstow.

The cottage is spacious but cozy at the same time and is set in beautiful countryside. The view from the kitchen sink is just lovely. Its a very peaceful place with a really nice garden to relax in as well as walks right from the door step. The cottage has everything you need for a very relaxing and 'home from home' holiday. I would highly recommend it and will be going again soon.
