This Cornish cottage in quaint Port Isaac will sweep you and your family off your feet. Built in the 1930s, it's retained much of its historic charm, including stained glass around the front door, deep bay windows and original hardwood flooring. Cosy, warm and incredibly inviting, this is an excellent place for families to spread out and unwind. While parents rustle up a delicious meal in the kitchen and share a bottle of wine kept cool in the wine fridge, kids can hang out in their own lounge until dinner time. When your stomach is full and your legs weary from the day's adventures, unwind in front of the open fire for a movie night. On summer days, take the relaxing outside into the wraparound garden, admiring the views of Rosarrock Hill and enjoying alfresco aperitifs and barbecues in the sun. Best of all is the location, right in the heart of this picturesque village made famous by the Doc Martin television series. Roam the winding streets down to the harbour, watching the boats come in or hop in the car and drive twenty minutes to Rock Beach to sprawl out on the sand. After a brisk stroll along the South West Coast Path, sample the catch of the day at the famed seafood restaurants in town, followed by a coffee or a pint at one of the traditional pubs and harbourside cafes.
Home truths: *There's a single bed and a cot in the master bedroom, as well as a sofa bed in the snug that can sleep one additional guest
*The hosts can also arrange a high chair if needed
*Two dogs are welcome (unfortunately no cats), but a charge of £25 per pet per stay/week will be applicable and required before your stay – your host will arrange this with you after booking confirmation
*You'll want a car to explore further afield – there's parking for one vehicle in the driveway, but it is narrow
*This home can be a little noisy at times as traffic passes by and people flow into town
