This immaculate, cosy little self-catering cottage is located just uphill from Port Gaverne, a10 minute walk to picturesque Port Isaac and a few yards from the coastal path. With underfloor heating and a warm wood panelled interior this is a romantic and splendid holiday retreat, accommodating 4 people in 2 bedrooms with one bathroom. There is a parking space for one car; please note that the driveway is shared with Cartway Cove, the next door house.The sitting room's high, vaulted ceiling has a spacious feel and has lovely rural and hilltop views over Port Gaverne valley; south-facing French windows open onto a private wooden deck with outdoor table and bench; a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the view. The kitchen has the luxury of a Delabole slate worktop and has all the equipment you need for creating a delicious summer salad or fish supper. Overlooking the sitting room is a gallery with built-in ladder, safety gate and full width curtains to provide a second bedroom with rural views. We recommend this room is used for two people over the age of eight.

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: Cartway Cabin can be let with 411 Cartway Cove for larger parties. The twin bedroom is accessed via steep ladder steps so care should be taken with children May not be suitable for the elderly or people with mobility problems.
