    “Wall cupboards are not ideally placed for people 5 feet or under 2nd and top shelves are more or less impossible to access, also some instructions on how to use the cooker would also be helpful,apart from that everything was fine.”

The property

This tastefully decorated single-story house, Puffins, is within walking distance to the harbour, yet tucked away at the top of the picturesque town on Lundy Road in Port Isaac, Cornwall. An idyllic home-away-from-home for couples or as a retreat for those working remotely, Puffins offers off-road driveway parking, ground-floor sociable living with the added bonus of a lawn-garden at the back; a rare combination within the village. Draw up in a no through road and after parking outside, drop your outdoor gear in the enclosed porch and step inside to put the kettle on and relax on the sofa while turning on the Smart TV to enjoy some light entertainment. The open-plan space allows you to spend time together while your significant other prepares a delicious meal in the well-equipped kitchen before sitting down at the homely dining table to enjoy a feast full of local produce. When the sun shines, why not take lunch al fresco in the enclosed garden and soak up some afternoon rays; canine companions will greatly appreciate this space for a run around too! The convenient shower room allows you to refresh before retiring to the sanctuary in the fantastic and restful double bedroom to recharge so that you can resume your explorations the next day. Start your day by pottering down the lanes to the centre of Port Isaac, taking in the renowned sights from the Doc Martin series and Fishermen’s Friends films; you may even catch the band singing their shanties on a summer’s evening on the harbour. Drop in at the boutique shops to stock up on your gifts and coastal clothing and be sure to visit the local cafes, such as Chapel Café and Fee’s Food deli for a bite to eat and a restorative coffee. Nathan Outlaw offers Michelin starred restaurants Outlaw’s New Road and Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen where you can delight in tasting the freshest seafood catch. For a hearty pub meal, try the Golden Lion or The Moat on the harbour; you’re sure not to go hungry here! Foodies will be spoilt in general in this area, with Boscastle Farm Shop and Sea View Farm Shop a short drive north for cooked breakfast or lunch stops and the delights of Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth a foot-ferry ride away in Padstow, from the nearby village of Rock. Nearby attractions include the remains of Doyden Castle, Lundy Bay, The Rumps, and Pentire Point, as well as Polzeath Beach, where you can take in the breathtaking views of the miles-long coastline and enjoy surfing the waves that this beach is so well known for. For a more relaxed dip, try Port Quin for snorkeling and a swim in the bay at high tide. A few miles away from Port Isaac you can wander through the valley to discover the stunning waterfall at St. Nectan’s Glen or for those preferring to hike the cliff tops from Port Isaac, you can take to the South West Coastal Path for dolphin spotting and stunning sea views. Visit Puffins if you want to have a romantic getaway in Cornwall that you will never forget.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Polzeath 6.5 miles; Padstow 16 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. There is ample parking at the top of the village and the village is a popular tourist destination with plenty of attractions including the dramatic Doyden Castle, the beautiful Lundy Bay and the famous Doc Martin's clinic. There are also plenty of pubs, restaurants, and shops in the village. Just a short drive from the beaches of Polzeath, Daymer and Rock, it is perfect for romantic and family holidays alike.

Note: This property is perfect for couples but does not accept children.
