Holidays in Port Isaac
Past Port Quin (the backdrop to many a film and the television series including Poldark, Saving Grace & Doc Martin) and on to Port Isaac. One of the treasures of Cornwall, Port Isaac is a beautiful fishing village nestling in a steep sided valley and retains its charm by remaining unchanged from its days of fishing, slate export and smuggling in the previous century.
An abundance of small fisherman's cottages are complimented by larger cliff-top retreats, all with easy access to the numerous restaurants and shops found in the village. The secluded sandy harbour provides an abundance of rock pools to explore as the tide retreats. Only ten minutes drive away are the beaches of Polzeath, Daymer and Rock, all perfect for romantic and family holidays alike. The coastal path (with some parts being wheelchair accessible) continues along past the neighbouring Port Gaverne, to Trebarwith and on to Tintagel Castle, home to the legendary King Arthur.
