Port Isaac - Sleeps 4 in
2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms


** Extensive refurbishment taking place over 2019-2020 winter months. Linen and towels to be included from January 2020 **

As its name implies, First and Last was originally the first building to be seen on entering Port Isaac's old village and the last on the way out. Set at the top of Rose Hill, it's now a deceptively spacious, detached converted barn oozing character and charm. Offering comfortable accommodation, suitable for a family of four in two bedrooms with two bathrooms. A fabulous location for exploring Port Isaac and Port Gaverne while being only a short drive from Rock and the Camel Estuary, the sandy cove of Daymer Bay and the rolling surf of Polzeath. A small garden and south facing terrace look down into the village. The property also benefits from two parking spaces.

The interior is really pretty with evidence of its old barn origins, vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and rafters in the open plan living room/kitchen. There's a king sized bedroom and a twin bedroom with one x 3ft bed and a further 2'6" one with en-suite Bath/Shower room (no window), both bedrooms benefitting from exposed beams. Tastefully furnished and decorated with welcoming warm wooden flooring throughout, creating a lovely space for a family holiday.

Port Isaac or 'Port Wenn' as it has now become quite well known (after its many appearances on ITV's Doc Martin series) is a popular TV and film location because of its scenic setting. Centuries old, fisherman's cottages are huddled around the busy working fishing harbour joined by narrow alleys and tiny lanes winding down the steep hillsides. The pretty cottage used for Doc Martins home/surgery is just across the village and up towards the top of Roscarrock hill. Nearby Port Gaverne, easily walkable from the barn is a lovely sheltered cove for swimming or enjoying drinks or food from the Inn. A 20 minute drive away lies the town of Wadebridge, where all the usual town amenities can be found including an indoor swimming pool and a cinema.
