Trip of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

Shirley was amazingly patient while dealing with USA banks to book. The cottage is gorgeous! The inside is very modern. We were fortunate enough to be there while they filmed an episode of "Doc Martin", so we were able to hang with the cast most of the day.

The beds are so comfy, the bathrooms very modern. Shirley has a nice setup of SkyTV and Doc Martin DVD's to entertain yourself at night. You walk in and feel at home. It feels like walking into a very modern boutique home. I miss it already!

Even Martin Clunes himself commented on how nice the place was. Loved talking to the people who stopped by to snap a photo of the famous exterior. We will be back! Aiming for this summer! Don't hesitate to book this gorgeous home!

Fabulous, comfortable Cornish cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need including very comfortable beds. The view is so beautiful you never tire of watching the tide and the changing colours through the day, sipping a glass of wine (generously supplied by the Owner Shirley). Very much appreciated. We met some very interesting people from all over the world doing the ‘Doc Martin experience’ and enjoyed chatting to them. A really fabulous holiday!!

Excellent stay in Port Isaac - Fern Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time in Fern Cottage. Certain times of day may have a small crowd outside on one of the tours of the village which we went on too. We were not comfortable driving through the narrow streets so parked at the £5 per day car park with lovely walk around harbour. The interior is to a high standard and is not from the Doc Martin set but all the better for it. Highly recommended

Great cottage. Great location

  • 5 of 5

Great stay. Great location. Great cottage. Driving is a bit difficult. But no need to drive once you get there since there are so many great sites right in Port Isaac.
