The property

Full of character and charm, Mermaid Cottage is an attractive stone cottage located in the prettiest setting on Rose Hill, just above the old harbour of Port Isaac on the North Cornwall coast. With views across the valley to Church Hill, a wood burner and comfortable furnishings, this is a cosy, convenient self-catering holiday haven for up to 6 people, accommodated in 3 bedrooms with an allocated parking space for one car close by. The very attractive wood and tiled kitchen has everything you need to create easy meals for hungry holiday appetites. Outside, relax on the enclosed paved patio to soak up the heat on a sunny day; it's a lovely extra space for meals or alfresco holiday cocktails. Romantically decorated, the bedrooms offer either a king size, double or twin beds, all sharing a pretty and light bath/shower room.With plenty of exploring to do in this ancient harbour town, it is also ideally situated for long days out hiking the coastal path up past Lobber Point, down past the Pine Haven valley and up again passing Varley Head. Stop and rest with a picnic at Port Quin; pack your swimmers for a refreshing dip in this cove that was once a thriving port for pilchards and tin. Another day, join a coasteering group for guided swim and climb around the cove; its also a perfect place for kayaking. Take your pick from several excellent sandy beaches just 10 minutes drive away; the surf haven of Polzeath beach, family and dog-friendly Daymer Bay and the watersport hub of Rock all lie to the East.Ground Floor: Entrance Hall with wood burner Sitting Room Dining Room Kitchen Separate WC First Floor: Bedroom 1: King size bed (5') with wash hand basin Bedroom 2: Double bed Bedroom 3: Twin beds Bathroom/Shower/WC Pets welcome by arrangement.

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.
