Port Isaac cottages
You may recognise the traditional Cornish port of Port Isaac, as its narrow winding streets and pretty fisherman’s cottages play host to the fictional village of Port Wenn in the popular TV series Doc Martin. Surrounded by beautiful beaches and countryside and with an abundance of seafood restaurants, pretty tea rooms and charming shops, this lovely port provides the perfect backdrop for a holiday in Cornwall.
Why visit Port Isaac?
Port Isaac gives you a real taste of authentic Cornwall, with its narrow, cobbled streets, known locally as ‘drangs’ and its colourful fishing boats bobbing about in the harbour. Only five miles away from the beautiful beaches of Polzeath and Daymer Bay, it is also on the South West Coast Path.
Things to do in Port Isaac:
Apart from the lovely beaches and excellent coastal walking and cycling on offer, the village itself is a lovely place to spend time. The seafood restaurants, pretty shops and various galleries and arts and craft shops are worth a visit, and you can even get your photo taken outside Doc Martins’s cottage!
