Port Isaac, North Cornwall

Last Port Quin (the back ground to a lot of a movie as well as the tv series including Poldark, savior & Doc Martin) and on to Port Isaac. One of many treasures of Cornwall, Port Isaac is an attractive fishing village nestling in a steep sided valley and retains its charm by continuing to be unchanged from the times of fishing, slate export and smuggling in the earlier century.

An abundance of little fisherman's cottages are complimented by larger cliff-top retreats, all with easy access into numerous restaurants and shops found in the town. The secluded sandy harbour provides a good amount of stone swimming pools to explore as tide retreats. Just 10 minutes drive away will be the shores of Polzeath, Daymer and Rock, all perfect for enchanting and family members holidays alike. The seaside road (with a few parts being wheelchair accessible) continues along past the neighbouring Port Gaverne, to Trebarwith as well as on to Tintagel Castle, residence into celebrated King Arthur.
