    “We have stayed at White Horses several times now and always enjoy the position and the privacy afforded when there.”

    Only the Signal Post lies beyond it, so if nobody is in residence at that property, there is no foot or vehicular traffic at all past White Horses. If you have good weather you can sit out front in the morning, and in the little courtyard at the side in the afternoon. So it's very nice. A point of confusion might lie with a bin in the communal bin enclosure that is marked clearly for 'White Horses', but is actually locked. We did report this two years ago and someone said they'd deal with it, ...

    Only the Signal Post lies beyond it, so if nobody is in residence at that property, there is no foot or vehicular traffic at all past White Horses. If you have good weather you can sit out front in the morning, and in the little courtyard at the side in the afternoon. So it's very nice. A point of confusion might lie with a bin in the communal bin enclosure that is marked clearly for 'White Horses', but is actually locked. We did report this two years ago and someone said they'd deal with it, but it is still there and in the same condition. You can use the other bins, but it may fox someone new to the property. Not wishing to sound too negative - just suggestions really - but the mop head drops off at the merest hint of having to do some work, and so does the head of the loo brush in the downstairs washroom. Some new shelves have been fitted in the shower room upstairs, and that is good, but it would be just a touch more convenient if consideration was given to adding some more near the washbasin too. A corner shelf unit (suitable for a shower) would definitely help those using the shower, especially if they are getting on a bit and struggle to bend down for the soap and shampoo whilst in there. The shower is a bit of a strange setup in that it uses the movable 'wand' style head as the main shower head, whereas they tend to be a supplementary addition to a main head. I have not seen that setup before. However, it does the job just fine I suppose. it is just unusual. Controlling the temperature at various power levels is a little more tricky however. A millimetre or two either way takes you very quickly between the 'Arctic' and the 'Napalm' settings... The biggest negative with the shower though - especially for those of us who are now (unwillingly) of larger proportions - is the shower door. I'm sure there will have been a three-leaf sliding shower door available somewhere, when it was fitted (although that might even now be a special order) but it would have been a better option to create a larger opening. I could have done without it, because every day of use just reminded me that I need to get some weight off. So if you're a bit on the large side, just bear in mind that you may need to squeeze yourself through the gap! Finally, the TV would benefit by being fitted on a swinging arm, rather than flat against the wall where it is. It isn't in the best place to be viewed from everywhere in the room. If not that, then fixed diagonally across the corner of the room might give everyone a better view. Most of those are relatively minor issues, but we think the property might benefit if they were implemented. That all sounds terribly negative, I suppose, but it's a lovely little property really, with a large parking bay just metres away and that, on its own, in Port Isaac anyway, is a HUGE plus! Also, there are four Swarco electric vehicle chargers just a 100 metres away on the car park. If you're an early riser like me, and can plug the car in somewhere between midnight and 09.00hrs the following morning, there are no car parking charges to pay. Bonus points for that too! John

About the location

PORT ISAAC

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.
