Stunning Location For Quaint Cottage
Fantastic cottage a stones throw from the harbour and superb pub. We ate in the evening by the waters edge as we carried our dinner the 30 seconds walk to get there! Clean and perfect for our family of four. A little tired around the edges and one tiny shower/toilet but perfectly adequate for what we needed. Value for money was high and would recommend for anyone that wanted location at an affordable price.
Great location, lovely cottage, needs lamps!
We loved our short stay, although finding the parking first time was interesting. Once discovered, we found the whole experience gorgeous.
The seagulls are as loud as expected; the vans driving past - close, but beyond this a great venue in a perfect location.
Do visit the lobster pools - when the tide is out.
Book your restaurant early!
Only criticism: we would have appreciated some bedside lamps.
Jacobs Cottage - july visit
this was fantastic - great location, great cottage, everything we needed. had to contact owner once and caretaker once - very pleasant and helpful. loved it
A challenging cottage
This is a nice cottage tucked in a beautiful village. It is three floors of tight, steep stairs almost ladders.
Enjoyed our stay
Perfectly situated in an amazing location and Everything you need on your door step.
Cottage was well equipped for our family for the weeks we stayed, beds were comfortable and clean and the rooms were a good size.
Shower room was on the small side but perfectly acceptable for a holiday stay.
Paying for parking was a bit of a pain but that was the only thing I would say i wasn't too happy about. Would definitely go back again
Beautiful location let down by very poor cleanliness
Beautiful location in the heart of Port Isaac, unfortunately let down by very poor standards of cleanliness especially on ground floor. Shame as it has the potential to be a great cottage. As described it has a very small shower room on 1st floor. Smallest shower cubical that I have ever seen. Noisiest seagulls ever heard. Also not able to put rubbish out for collection as no correct bins.(council refused to take rubbish). Due to cleanliness, could not recommended. Such a shame.
Port Isaac, tucked away on the North Coast between Padstow and Boscastle, has recently been home to the television series 'Doc Martin' with Martin Clunes. Although previous years have seen the series Poldark film here and in nearby Port Quinn. Much of the village is 18th and 19th century and there a wonderful narrow streets and alleyways to explore. It is a maze of narrow lanes and pathways known as "drangs" with only one road through, along which traffic is discouraged. The houses are traditional stone built, slate hung cottages. As with many places in Cornwall, once having relied heavily on fishing and fish processing, the village now caters for many visitors with plenty of shops and eateries for the frequent visitors. In the heart of the village are a pub, two hotels, two cafe / bistros. There are other pubs and a cafe at the top of the village. There is a bakery, delicatessen, fishmongers and a well stocked Coop supermarket. Fish may also be bought from the local fishmerchants in the fish cellars by the harbour. There are also the usual art and craft shops.
Those interested in fishing may hire a local boat and fisherman. Kayaking may also be arranged in the village. The National Trust coastal path runs through the village and provides spectacular walks over the cliffs. Many places of interest are in easy reach: Pencarrow House, Tintagel, The Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan along with many others. Padstow is close by with its many restaurants and attractions. It can be visited by the foot ferry from Rock and trips may be made out to sea, with puffins on the nearby islands at the right time of year. At Rock there are excellent beaches and boats may be hired from the sailing school along with windsurfers. Other good sandy beaches are at Polzeath and Trebarwith, both of which cater for windsurfing. There is also Daymer Bay, a famous windsurfing spot. From Daymer, it is just a short walk to St. Enedoc church where Sir John Betjeman is buried. Wadebridge has shops of interest and makes a pleasant wander round.
