Visit Port Isaac

Fans of Doc Martin will recognise Port Isaac, the attractive fishing village where the TV drama is filmed. The vibrant local community offers a look back to Cornish days of yore, with narrow, winding streets lined with whitewashed fishermen’s cottages and traditional granite, slate-fronted Cornish houses sloping their way down to the harbour, where local fishermen land their daily catch of fish, crab and lobsters.

What to expect from a Newquay holiday

Newquay: a top destination for families, a mecca for the surfing community, and one of the UK’s favourite seaside towns. Compared to the sleepy fishing villages and market towns that dot Cornwall’s Atlantic Coast, holidays in this buzzing town are rather different! We’re proud to present a selection of hotels in and around the area, including accommodation providers right on the beach.

Best dog-friendly Cornwall beaches

From popular spots including Fistral and Watergate Bay in Newquay, through to secret coves and bays that you may never have heard of before now, we've done the homework to let you know which Cornish beaches allow dogs. Read on to see the full list of beaches where dogs are allowed all year round, where there are restrictions, and where there are annual bans.

A colourful village

Two steep hillsides shelter the narrow streets down to Port Isaac’s pretty harbour in the centre of the village, where you’ll also find a small beach. Down at the harbour you’ll be able to see the colourful fishing boats and watch as the fishermen bring their daily catch to shore.

There are a number of shops in the village, as well as numerous pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy fresh seafood and local delicacies. These include The Mote, The Golden Lion and two run by celebrity chef Nathan Outlaw: Restaurant Nathan Outlaw and Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen.

Set amidst rugged and magnificent scenery on the North Cornwall coast, you’ll find Port Quin and Port Gaverne, two other beautiful ports, nearby, while you’ll be well-connected to the South West Coast Path and its variety of wonderful walks.
