What we like about this property...
What’s not to like about Bay View! Situated just a short walk from the center of the village, which is built around the historic harbour, Port Isaac is the ideal place to enjoy a traditional Cornish holiday. Made famous by the Martin Clunes in Doc Martin, the village lives up to it’s television image, with winding streets and surprises around every corner. The beach at Port Gaverne is easily accessible, and offers a chance to cool off in the sea or just sit back and watch the world go by. There are too many pubs, cafes and restaurants to mention, but needless to say, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Bay View was perfect for a family break away. The views are stunning as are the sunsets and the house is well equipped and very comfortable. The locality is excellent and the local co cop is very handy. This was the third time we have stayed in the house and I’m sure we will be returning again.
Great location for walking into Port Isaac, and great views from the back veranda. Had a lovely family holiday staying in Bay View, plenty of room for us all (6 adults and 3 children), and parking for 3 cars.
What we love about the area...
Port Isaac is a beautiful old harbour with narrow winding streets and interesting galleries and quaint shops. The harbour has been filmed on many occasions for historical dramas and recently was used as the setting for the series Doc Martin. At the centre of the village is the ‘Platt’ where you can sit and watch the fishermen land their catch of crabs and lobsters and while many an hour watching the world go by. Some fabulous restaurants have recently appeared in Port Isaac and yet the traditional pubs remain where you can get to know the locals. All within walking distance of Bay View.
Next to Port Isaac is the small but lovely beach of Port Gaverne. The sandy beach when the tide is out has the most perfect rock pools and caves to explore. The water is crystal clear and very inviting on a hot summer day.
This is an unspoilt corner of Cornwall with lots to discover. There are numerous coastal walks on your doorstep and plenty of opportunity to get away from it all. The north coast provides rugged scenery, fantastic sunsets and wonderful beaches. Not far away (20 mins) is the popular surfing beach of Polzeath. Also nearby you can find Trebarwith Strand, another favourite, and further along is Rock where you can catch the ferry across to Padstow – only a 10 minute boat ride away. Tintagel a village of history and legends with King Arthurs Castle is also not far away and Boscastle a charming fishing port provides yet another day of discovery (only 15 mins by car).
In the season you can book fishing or scenic trips from Port Isaac harbour and there is horse riding nearby and of course many beautiful Cornish gardens to visit.
