    Small but we'll tended garden that fitted the bill perfectly and was very safe for my little Jack Russell Cross. I would love to have given a 5 rating, but for a few issues. We had no internet all week. We tried several times a day to link in to the WiFi, but no joy. This could be to do with the provider of course. Also, there was no welcome pack, so we didn't have a clue how to get anything working. i.e. the heating. We eventually worked most things out, (except for the hob), but it really shouldn't have been so difficult. The power shower in the master was a bit of a handful too. The master bed has "sticky out bits" on the corners...I have the bruises to prove it, so just be aware. All that said, we loved this quirky house. It has charm and character. There are so many good things about it. There's a small co-op, walking distance down the road, very handy. And normally, a shuttle service that will take you in and out of Port Isaac, it's a very tough walk down and even harder coming back up. There's nowhere at the seafront to park. Very easy to get to Padstow, Tintagel etc. Would definitely stay here again.

About the location


Polzeath 6 miles; Padstow 9 miles

Port Isaac; one of the true Cornish treasures. A beautiful fishing village nestling in a steep sided valley, the old village in the valley remains unchanged from its days of fishing, slate export and smuggling in the previous century. An abundance of small character properties complemented by larger cliff-top retreats, can be found with easy access to the numerous restaurants and shops of the village. The sandy harbour provides an abundance of rock pools as the tide retreats. Only ten minutes drive from the beaches of Polzeath, Daymer and Rock, it is perfect for romantic and family holidays alike. There is ample parking at the top of the village.

Please note: Care should be taken with children on the open tread stairs to the first floor.
