SUMMER 2020 UPDATE
Guests can be assured our cottage will be extremely thoroughly cleaned during changeovers. Disinfectants will be used; gloves and masks will be worn by our cleaner; and the cottage will be well ventilated. We are now taking bookings from July 18. Our cancellation policy: 14 days' notice = 100% refund; 7-13 days' notice = 50% refund.
Our cottage, Choughs, is a very good-value, self-catering holiday home, ideal for up to three adults or two adults and two children, and located right in the heart of the old village by the harbour in a quaint traffic-free lane. It is homely and comfortably furnished, quite small, and traditional in style rather than very modern. The cottage is just 50 metres from the beach but does not have a view of the sea. There is an electric fire in the living room, as well as an oil-fired storage heater. Both bedrooms have convector heaters. An immersion heater supplies hot water to the kitchen and bathroom. Sorry, no smoking and no dogs (but we cannot guarantee that pets have not stayed in the property). We do not recommend the cottage for children under four years old. Unlimited Wi-Fi.
Choughs has a tiny, colourful front garden, plus a back door that leads to our shed and also to an alleyway out to the adjoining street. When arriving and departing, it is possible to park, briefly, within 20 yards of the front door to unload/load your car. At other times, you must park in the main car park at the top of Port Isaac; the walk up the hill will help work off the fresh fish and cream teas you will have enjoyed! We provide full details about where to park and costs. Alternatively, give your legs a rest and jump in the new taxi-shuttle service that operates between the harbour and the top of the village.

Port Isaac is a 700-year-old fishing village, nestling between the cliffs on the rugged north Cornwall coast. It has been welcoming tourists for years but retains a quaint and uncommercialised charm. Recently, it has been widely admired as the beautiful setting for TV series Doc Martin and the film The Shell Seekers. It is the home of Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, rated the best restaurant in Britain by the Good Food Guide 2018, while the chef's other venue in Port Isaac, the wonderfully atmospheric Outlaw's Fish Kitchen, is just around the corner from the cottage. Between them, they boast three Michelin stars. There are several other super places to eat out at too. Port Isaac is also an ideal base from which to visit Padstow (and Rick Stein's many eating venues!), Rock, the beaches at Polzeath and Daymer Bay, Tintagel Castle and the National Trust's Lanhydrock House and Gardens. The Eden Project, St Michael's Mount and Tate St Ives are all within easy reach by car.
