First and Last

50° 35′ 32.363″N -4° 49′ 46.073″W

Wrapped up in history and romance, this beautifully converted barn boasts rustic beams, a bubbling hot tub and a bird's eye view across Port Isaac from the sheltered terrace.

Originally the first and last building to be seen on the way in and out of Port Isaac's old village, this historic property is perfectly placed to explore everything the village has to offer by foot.

First and Last combines a central location and parking - gold dust in Port Isaac! From this stylish base you can stroll down into the centre of the village, explore the shops and cafés and watch the fishermen bringing in the catch of the day. You will be able to spot locations made famous in Doc Martin and The Fisherman's Friends movie, and if you are lucky you might bump into one of the cast.

The lesser-known hamlet of Port Gaverne is also within easy reach. Here, you can enjoy a beach day, spot dolphins and seals from the headland and enjoy live music at the Pilchards Café . For those who enjoy being on or in the water, Cornish Rock Tors offer coasteering, kayaking, paddleboarding and wild swimming here. You can also easily hop on the South West Coast Path (just a couple of minutes walk away) and explore some of the more scenic stretches of coastline in the UK, taking in hidden bays and picturesque villages.

Foodies will be in heaven at First and Last. Just minutes away are two restaurants by celebrity chef Nathan Outlaw; The Fish Kitchen and Restaurant Nathan Outlaw. For a Cornish pub experience, choose from The Golden Lion (featured in Doc Martin and the Fisherman's Friends movie) or the Port Gaverne Hotel and Restaurant, both within walking distance. You are also just a short stroll from the Co-Op supermarket, making it easy to pick up those holiday essentials.

It is easy to come and go from First and Last, making it a fantastic base to explore the best that North Cornwall has to offer. You can be at the popular surfing beach of Polzeath in under fifteen minutes or the estuary village of Rock in twenty. Here you can partake in a number of watersports or hop on the ferry to explore the harbour town of Padstow. You are also in easy reach of Tintagel from First and Last, home to the famous castle associated with the legends surrounding King Arthur.
