Suncroft is a charming holiday home at the heart of Cornwall's fishing village of Port Isaac. Off-road parking for two cars, an open-plan living area, a large rear garden, and close proximity to the beach and local amenities make this well-presented bungalow ideal for families or couples looking for a coastal retreat.
You can prepare home-cooked meals in the fully-equipped kitchen and relax in front of the Smart TV in your new home-from-home. Enjoy meals at the dining table, or head outside to the back garden, which has a barbecue and decked area and is a great place to unwind with a few drinks in the evening and where children can run off any excess energy at the end of the day as adults lean back and bask in the sun's rays. When you're ready for a good night's sleep, wash off the day in the bathroom with a shower or relaxing bath and then make your way to the very comfortable double or twin bedroom, both of which feature ample storage.
While the nearby convenience Coop store is handy for self-catering guests, for those wishing for a day off from the kitchen, and alongside other restaurants and cafes, The Golden Lion, a charming harbourside pub that dates back to 1715, is a short walk away and a wonderful place to treat loved ones to a special meal or celebratory drinks. Potter down the hill from Port Isaac to Port Gaverne Beach on a sunny day for stunning sea views from the bay, sunbathing and paddling opportunities, or for adrenaline-hunters why not book in for local coasteering activities at nearby Port Quin. Without leaving the village of Port Isaac itself, you can enjoy the local boutique shops and trot down to the harbour, taking in the familiar landmarks from the TV show Doc Martin which was filmed in the village. If venturing up the coast, Tintagel, the legendry birthplace of King Arthur, is accessible by car and houses Merlin's Cave, which overlooks the tranquil beach, Tintagel Haven. When heading south by car via the market town of Wadebridge, you can carry on and take a scenic drive to Padstow and visit the National Lobster Hatchery, which runs educational tours and activities, before strolling around the waterfront and savouring locally caught seafood at Rick Stein's The Seafood Restaurant. For a true holiday feel, you can drive to nearby Rock village and take the foot ferry across the Camel Estuary to Padstow town instead. Suncroft really is is the perfect home base for exploring Cornwall's beautiful coastline.
