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: Linen and towels are NOT provided.
There is building work taking place on the property diagonally opposite 1 The Folly. The majority of the external work is completed and work has moved mostly to inside. The building work should be completed by mid summer.

Please note: That this property is accessed up a very narrow street with restricted access.
