    “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Poplar Cottage, Port Isaac is a wonderful little village and the cottage is well situated.”

    Port Isaac is full of fabulous places to eat, and each one we ate at we found the food to be superb and the staff so friendly and helpful. Although for the most the cottage was clean there were a number of cobwebs and the main bathroom tiles around the bath were badly marked and would benefit from a good scrub. The salt mill was broken, the blind in the top bedroom had a broken chain, the blind in the middle bedroom needs attention, and the garden really needs some major attention. There was ...

    Port Isaac is full of fabulous places to eat, and each one we ate at we found the food to be superb and the staff so friendly and helpful. Although for the most the cottage was clean there were a number of cobwebs and the main bathroom tiles around the bath were badly marked and would benefit from a good scrub. The salt mill was broken, the blind in the top bedroom had a broken chain, the blind in the middle bedroom needs attention, and the garden really needs some major attention. There was also no potato masher in the kitchen. The above is for your information so action can be taken to rectify the points highlighted. None of the above impacted our stay and we would highly recommend Poplar Cottage and Port Isaac. The parking space for the cottage was a bonus too. Port Isaac isn’t for the faint hearted as the village is at the bottom of a very steep hill, so lots of walking, steep hill climbing and steps were involved in our weeks stay. All very worth it though.

The property

Poplar Cottage is a beautifully presented self-catering holiday cottage offering a superb coastal retreat in Port Isaac, a working fishing village and the home of the Doc martin series on the North Cornwall coast. Tucked away in Dolphin Street, Poplar Cottage sleeps up to 5 in three spacious bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom making it the perfect getaway for families with the picturesque harbour just a short stroll away. Choose from two gardens in which to relax, after a long day exploring the rugged coastal paths, with an evening tipple listening to the evening’s ambient village life. There is an allocated parking space for one car approximately 200 yards away from the cottage. Please ask us if you want to chat about this before booking. This charming holiday cottage retains its beamed ceilings and the traditional Cornish stone fireplace now housing a log burner. Upstairs on the first floor separated by the light filled landing are a double and single bedroom (accessed through the double bedroom) and family bathroom. The second floor boasts a spacious master bedroom with luxury en-suite bathroom. The traditional kitchen and dining/ living room are the central hub of the house where you can relax around the log burner reminiscing on the day’s adventures and planning the next. Poplar Cottage is but a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of village life offering a very short walk to; the beach for some rockpool rambles, enjoy a glass of wine or a pint of local ale next to an open fire in the local pub or pay a visit the various café’s, potteries and art galleries etc. The superb creations of one of the most renowned chefs in the country, Nathan Outlaw, can be enjoyed in one of his two restaurants within walking distance from the cottage. If this isn’t enough for you and you want to fully immerse yourself into Port Isaac village life you can take a ‘walk and talk’ tour hosted by John Brown, a member of the famous shanty singing group the Fisherman’s Friends who coincidently can be found on the Platt during the summer months performing. For those water lovers, Polzeath is a short drive away whilst the place to go for boating, sailing and various water sport is most definitely Rock where you can also catch the ferry across to Padstow, a bustling harbour town. Ground Floor: Kitchen Dining and Living area First Floor: Bedroom 2: Double bed Bedroom 3: Single bed (accessed through the double bedroom) Bath/Shower/WC The bed configuration will be made up as per the description. If you require the beds to be made up differently, please inform us at least 7 days prior to your arrival date. Second Floor Bed 1: King size bed, en-suite Bath/WC 1 Pet welcome by arrangement.

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.

Please note: The single bedroom is accessed through the double bedroom.
