NEW: Unlimited Wi-Fi 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.
OUTSIDE 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 all 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 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.

Very pretty,clean cottage. The upstairs bedrooms were light and very spacious. Well furnished and equipped,plenty of hangers,sockets,mirrors and lighting. Bathroom ,..plenty of room and bright. Downstairs had everything kitchen,dining and lounge ,all in the one room ,so it appeared very crowded. Front outside area very pretty and well planted up. It would have been nice to have had a small bistro type set there to sit at ,instead of the garden wall. The back area wasn’t suitable for sitting outside in as several bins were permanently there. This was the only problem....our bin was almost full on arrival,and despite putting it where requested, each night,it mysteriously found its way back overnight and was never emptied. The weather was very warm and sunny so we opened back and front doors to cool house down.....stable doors would have been preferable but not essential. Again the kitchen was well equipped,lots of sockets downstairs too and plenty of lights. The local booklets on Port Isaac we’re super. A lovley find right in the centre of Port Isaac....couldn’t have been more ideal. Walks from cottage plentiful. Eating places in PortIsaac and Port Gaverne good and plentiful...a week wasn’t long enough to sample all of them. For info, there is now a seasonal snack wagon in the PortQuin car park.
Charming unspoilt cottage in a tranquil environment

Beautiful little gem of a cottage, tucked away just off the harbour. Very peaceful and relaxing, but close to all the various outlets that Port Isaac has to offer. Total relaxation, best holiday for a very long time!

Small and cosy at a very picturesque cottage

We, a couple, had a beautiful time with sunny weather, fantastic landscapes and stay in a cosy cottage at the harbour. There are very good restaurants and pubs - we will come back.
Lovely place for the price

Found this to be just as described, it is quite small but we're just a couple. Had a lovely stay here in May probably quieter than later in summer. Bed was comfy, shower good and wifi good. Had a slight issue with the dustbin but these things happen, owner has a local housekeeper who helped out. Very close tot he harbour – just round the corner. And Port Isaac is so charming. Really great for the price.
Had a wonderful week at Choughs cottage
By Anne & Rick, Uxbridge on 18-Oct-2013
This cottage is perfect for two & and an ideal base for walking & exploring. There are some very good eating places just a few yards from Choughs so leaving the car at the top of Port Isaac was not a problem for us at all. The 10 minute coastal walk to pick up the car was a lovely way to start the day if you wanted to go exploring further from the village. Although small the cottage was very clean & cosy on the chillier evenings & was a lovely homely place to return to at the end of a day spent walking. We hope it won"t be too long before we can visit again.
