The Port House

50° 35' 34.673"N -4° 49' 42.804"W

Perfectly placed in one of Cornwall's most sought after coastal villages, The Port House promises an unforgettable escape where the sound of the ocean and sea shanties can be heard on the soft sea breeze.

The Port House is set in a prime position amidst the fishing village of Port Isaac where narrow streets lead you past whitewashed cottages to the beautiful beach and harbour.

The Port House 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 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 The Port House. Just minutes away are two restaurants by celebrity chef Nathan Outlaw; The Fish Kitchen and Restaurant Nathan Outlaw. One of your locals is the fabulous Stargazy Inn. Here you can enjoy a tipple on the terrace and take in the breathtaking views of the water, followed by a delicious dinner by Head Chef, Andrew Sheridan of BBC Two’s Great British Menu. 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 close to the Co-Op supermarket, making it easy to pick up those holiday essentials.

It is easy to come and go from The Port House, 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 The Port House, home to the famous castle associated with the legends surrounding King Arthur.
