As you hear Friday night's rousing shanties regarding the Fishermen's Friends, you'll be so pleased you decided a Port Isaac cottage because of this year's vacation. Actually, they might be most of your basis for popping in, a ten-strong line-up of friends, understood far and wide for their joyful renditions of popular folk songs. Or might it be the environment that lures you, the village that's become famous once the background for comedy capers of Martin Clunes in Doc Martin? Something's for many, Port Isaac is actually wonderful.
Explore Port Isaac's hidden backwaters, a warren of twisting lanes or 'drangs' crammed with old, whitewashed cottages - look out for 'Squeeze stomach Alley', thought to be the whole world's narrowest street as soon as the escape for contraband. Linger within harbour and watch local anglers land their day-to-day catch. Enjoy a scenic cruise along north Cornwall's tough shore. Stride completely across the seaside road. Surf amazing rollers at Polzeath, four kilometers away. If you've booked a pet friendly Port Isaac cottage, next-door to Polzeath is Daymer Bay - fantastic for households and romps with 'Scamp' on a giant expanse of sand. Rent a bike and cycle the Camel Trail. Play tennis at St. Enodoc. At mealtimes, browse Port Isaac's restaurants and bars or barbeque grill seafood over coals inside garden.
