Brakestone Cottage takes its name from a granite pillar where carts were wedged while loading fishing nets. Located on a traditional pedestrian street in the heart of Port Isaac, this attractive fisherman's cottage, with small slate patio to the front, is just a stone's throw from the bustling harbour where the fishing boats land their daily catch. Stylishly furnished throughout, it sleeps 4 to 6 people in 3 bedrooms. An allocated garaged parking space is at the top of the village. Although this cottage is a Friday changeover, the owner would consider a Thursday to Thursday booking by arrangement.
Relax in the cosy open plan living room/kitchen; light the wood-effect electric fire and snuggle down on cooler summer evenings. Visit the fish market in the village cook yourself something quick and easy in the well-equipped compact kitchen. An elegant blue and white decorated bedroom on the first floor has a double bed, while 2 bright twin bedded rooms with partly vaulted ceilings are to be found on the second floor.
A plum location within North Cornwall's designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Port Isaac is a picturesque, atmospheric and historic fishing village dating back from the 18th Century. A lovely place to wander around soaking up the architecture, there are superb cafes and restaurants and a characterful old pub, The Golden Lion, where you can enjoy a local brew on the balcony overlooking the beach. Those wanting more energetic pursuits could stroll around to Port Gaverne beach for some wild swimming or canoeing; or carry on hiking the coastal path as far as you like to appreciate the dramatic cliffs and coves of this part of the coast. For a change of scenery, explore the North coast and hop in the car to nearby Polzeath or Trebarwith for surfable waves, or gentle Daymer Bay perfect for paddling with smaller children and lazy picnics on the beach. Watersport fans should make a bee-line for Rock, with its sailing club and waterski school, also the ferry across to Padstow harbour.
