Why Timothy Abbott - Cornish Seaview Cottages chose Port Isaac
Fantastic large house with parking for 3 cars (which is a rarity in Port Isaac). Only a 5 or 10 minute walk down to the harbour. Spacious property great for families with lovely views out over the valley.

Comfortable house in attractive harbour town
Roomy and well-decorated house with a good location overlooking the harbour of an attractive Cornish town. Good bedrooms and a spacious living area for a large group - in better weather we would have enjoyed the terrace too. The location is excellent for cliff-walking (we did lots of that despite the mixed weather) and close to Polzeath for surfing. Easy access to cafes, restaurants and take-aways in Port Isaac.
There were a couple of minor practical problems on arrival (including no hot water) but these were sorted out the next day after a phone call to the caretaker. The internet connection is rather variable as we found when trying to watch Netflix flims on the TV - so if there is a way of boosting the supply this would be welcome. Otherwise the house was pretty ideal for our purposes and I would recommend it warmly to others who like this kind of location.
We stayed with another family and there was plenty of room for us all (4 adults and 6 kids). The house is spacious and well laid out. It is a bit tired in places and in need of some attention, however this did not cause us any issues. The kitchen is well equipped with the exception of a potato peeler! The decking area outside is lovely to sit out on when the weather is being good to us, however the furniture is very dated and some of the chairs felt very unsafe to sit on, pleased none of them gave up on us! The garden is a great size for the children to burn of some energy and the laundry room being away from the kitchen is great as it means no listening to a washing machine whilst trying to relax in an open plan area. I would recommend this house for a large group or a couple of families as it is well located in Port Issac and the town had a great pub and some other shops and cafes. You can also walk to neighbouring ports, although they are somewhat smaller.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am pleased you enjoyed the property and that you would recommend it. You may like to know that we are in the process of purchasing new rattan style garden furniture so in future all our guests will be able to dine in comfort! I am sorry if you felt a little unsafe. A potato peeler will also be purchased.
I do hope we can welcome you again. All the best from The Team at Cornish Seaview Cottages
lovely seaside family cottage
all 10 of us plus baby Rosa and Dylan the dog had a lovely break - very good locations and wonderful views. Could do with another shower room downstairs for the number of people.
Special interest holidays:
Bay View is great for walkers or surfers.
This is an unspoilt corner of Cornwall with lots to discover. There are numerous coastal walks on your doorstep and plenty of opportunity to get away from it all. The north coast provides rugged scenery, fantastic sunsets and wonderful beaches.
Port Isaac fishing harbour is 0.25 km away.
Not far away (20 mins) is the popular surfing beach of Polzeath. Also nearby you can find Trebarwith Strand, another favourite, and further along is Rock where you can catch the ferry across to Padstow - only a 10 minute boat ride away.
In the season you can book fishing or scenic trips from Port Isaac harbour and there is horse riding nearby and of course many beautiful Cornish gardens to visit.
