  • “The Folly is well positioned down a quiet cul-de-sac at the top of Port Isaac in easy walking distance of everything.”

    It makes a very adequate base for a couple for a week and, in our view would be fine for a family of four. Views to Tintagel from the upstairs bedroom.

    It makes a very adequate base for a couple for a week and, in our view would be fine for a family of four. Views to Tintagel from the upstairs bedroom. We did not experience any of the issues mentioned in other recent reviews. As small points lack of any soap, washing up liquid and only one toilet roll were minor disappointments. The boiler is very noisy.

Signal Post & Folly

Lovely location with separate accesses but side by side.  Perfect for a larger family that wants two properties with their own space.

The property

The Folly is a detached property in Port Isaac, enjoying sea and coastal views. Designed with flair and using quality fixtures and fittings, it has the advantage of a private parking space and an enclosed patio garden. The property is colourfully presented with lovely vaulted ceilings in the open pan living room/kitchen and in the master bedroom with superking-size bed. It sleeps 3 - 4 guests in two bedrooms with 1 shower room, making it ideal for a small family. The Folly is located just a five-minute walk of the old village of Port Isaac on the North Cornwall coast, with its 18th and 19th century fisherman’s cottages, shops, cafes, restaurants and a pub. The Folly has an attractive patio garden, bordered by mature plants with classic Cornish palms making an ideal spot for the family to relax and enjoy al fresco meals after busy days spent on the harbour-side or nearby beaches. You can glimpse the sea and rugged coastline from the light and airy main bedroom and the pretty white ground floor bedroom offers two single beds. There is a bright contemporary shower room and an open plan living room/kitchen with sliding doors leading out onto the terrace area. Port Isaac is a vibrant, picturesque village with narrow winding streets lined with whitewashed cottages that lead you down to the harbour. Arm yourself with a pasty and a pint or indeed a glass of wine and a delicious meal in one of the many fine dining establishments to be found here.

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.
