    Captivating Port Isaac Cottage sleeping up to 5 guests

    18th-century holiday house is just 100 yards away from Port Isaac, made famous by the TV series ‘Doc Martin’. This end-terrace holiday cottage which benefits from a parking space was once an old pilchard trading house and is only 100 yards from the picturesque harbour of Port Isaac, made famous by the TV series ‘Doc Martin’. Set over four floors, this 18th-century grade II listed house is full of seaside character having been lovingly restored and totally refurbished by its owners. The cottage nestles amongst the narrow streets of Port Isaac which are filled with traditional North Cornish properties, pubs, interesting shops and restaurants. With the beach only a stone’s throw away, this is an ideal spot to take advantage of fabulous fishing spots, rock pooling and stunning cliff top walks along the South West Coastal Path, taking in the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. You are ideally placed to visit the many tourist attractions that this area has to offer including Tintagel, the mythical home of King Arthur, Boscastle and Padstow with its array of shops, pubs and restaurants, including Rick Stein’s famous seafood restaurant. From here the ferry can be taken across to Rock with its shops, restaurants and bars. In the centre of Padstow, bikes can be hired to cycle the Camel Trail, a disused railway line along the Camel Estuary where an abundance of birdlife can be seen, to Wadebridge and then all the way to Bodmin. The Eden Project is within driving distance as are the many beautiful gardens of the South Coast. There are many stunning sandy beaches within easy reach, ideal for a family day out, dog walking or a day surfing. Shops, pub and restaurant 20 yards.

    "We have given a very low score for cleanliness as on arrival we found the cottage hadn’t been cleaned since the previous occupants left, beds unusable as bed linen was dirty and so were all of the towels. We were unable to unpack or to shower and spent our first night after a eight hour journey on the sofa and the chair in the lounge. We were unable to contact yourselves or the owner as there was’nt a mobile signal in Port Isaac. This was resolved the next day and a cleaner arrived about midday, she was most apologetic although she wasn’t at fault.Generally the standard of cleanliness we have come to expect having stayed in previous holiday rentals was sadly lacking. The kitchen cupboards were very musty, the cooker was greasy, the sofa and chair in the lounge were stained and dirty. Also there were cobwebs in corners and a number of faulty lightbulbs. The second bedroom was swamped by the bed therefore it lacked a set-up to get ready. The main bedroom lacked any storage or hanging space for clothes and we lived out of our suitcases for the entire holiday. As it is an attic room we realise space is tight but a chest of drawers would easily have fitted into the space taken up by a blanket box. Maybe hanging could have been fitted between the rafters.In addition a dishwasher rather than a washing machine would have been much more appreciated. Basic items were not provided eg. A cafetière, salt and pepper grinders were empty. No welcome pack on arrival either. Although the cottage is marketed as being dog friendly dogs are only allowed downstairs, this should be made clear as the lounge is on the first floor."

    "We throughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it. Sadly we won’t be back as we are only visitors from Australia. Stairs could be a problem for elderly or infirm guests.g"

    "The main bedroom-had to crouch/crawl to get in and out of bed given the low ceiling. We as a couple found the other bedrooms too small to use and the beds not suitable for two people. The tv was difficult to operate. The external door could not be locked from inside. The cottage is in a great location close to the harbour and all the restaurants."

    "S20720 is pint-sized luxury accommodation in a distinctively charming location. Port Isaac is like some Italian fishing village reeking with allure.The listing says “dogs welcome”, but a more accurate descriptions would be “dogs welcome in kitchen”. The owners request that you keep any dogs contained to the kitchen and provide a baby gate to block of the rest of the property from them. Our dogs were not so happy to be exiled there during our stay (coincidentally, the command to punish my childhood dog was “Kitchen” which sent him off to his bed in the kitchen).The whole property is a bit squoze in. The second bedroom has a bed that is more of a one-and-half sized bed than a proper double bed. And even then it pretty much fills the room so completely that you can barely walk around it. The main bedroom is situated on the "top floor", aka converted attic crawl space. And crawl you do have to do most of the tie to get around it. It's 5’ 8” at the apex, but that means that most of the room is half that height. Still, my wife was pleased that I was forced to use the toilet sitting down.The property is beautifully decorated and maintained, and is located superbly in the heart of this great seaside destination, but be prepared for cozy accommodation at bedtime."

    "The location was great. Unfortunately the weather was not great until the last day.The attic bedroom in S20720 was not comfortable having to bend all the time. The house was not ideal with dogs if the rules were to be obeyed."

    "We all enjoyed S20720 , the best part being it’s location although getting to it and parking was a pain. It was equipped well but thought the washing machine a waste of time and space as no where to dry any washing ? A dishwasher would be far more useful . We had a giggle each time the loft toilet was used as we had never seen one like these in action , so noisy! but hey better than not having one .We all struggled trying to close doors as none of them closed hence I suddenly realised the reason for big balls of rope door stops in every room , the only way sometimes to keep the doors shut . I got stuck in the main bathroom as the latch stuck ...again causing fits of laughter . We thought the cottage quirky , cosy and did feel at home , the only reason we wouldn’t stay again was that I didn’t take into account as hubby complained not much of a view, he likes to see the sea and enjoys watching life going on around , so that’s my fault . I wouldnt hesitate in recommending S20720 to others though,although I do think on reflection the letting rate was a bit high, but there again it was tastefully furnished , with nice quality items but it’s sad that others did not treat it like home as the covers on the most comfortable lounge furniture were a bit dirty in places , we tried turning them over but they were worse the other side . Oh the beds were lovely to sleep on , with nice clean sheets so in all , we did have a nice stay ."

    "The cottage is beautiful and located in an amazing location . Improvements that could be made are, upgraded heating to allow for hot water , it can get cold with just the electric heaters .Provide Ariel to allow for TV channels . New bed sheets required . Everything else was great 👍"

    "Overall pleased with our stay, lovely character in the cottage right amongst it all in the harbour. Felt it could have been a little cleaner upon arrival and tough to heat the place on a cold day."
    Lynn – 20 Feb 2018
    "We enjoyed our stay at S20720 cottage. It is in a prime position, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The only reason we did not give a top score of 10 for Overall Rating and Comfort & Equipment was that it is quite hard to heat the cottage over the four floors if it is really cold. We stayed in February and even with the wood burner going in the kitchen area, it still seemed chilly in this room. I'm sure we will return in the warmer summer months."
