Based close to the heart of Port Isaac, this quaint and cosy 18th Century cottage is perfectly situated for those looking to relax and soak up the atmosphere of this vibrant, picturesque fishing village. Based over three floors with views of Doc Martin's house from the top bedroom, this quintessentially Cornish home is perfect for couples or small families. A woodburner in the open plan living area is a welcome treat when the evenings cool, whilst the stable door allows fresh sea air to cool you on a hot summer's day.

For a real treat Nathan Outlaw's Fish Kitchen is just a ten minute walk away, where you can enjoy a feast of locally sourced seafood.

Lovely cottage, well equipped and very comfortable with nice furnishings. Very close to shops and restaurants. No parking space and car park is a few minutes walk away so can be tricky to unload/load luggage. That apart had a lovely stay in a beautiful cottage.

Castle cottage is a lovely place to stay right in the centre of town. Fabulous views from the top of the house. Great location and well equipped and maintained. Space is suitable for a couple or small family. I took my teenage son, so the internet connection was vital and happily was excellent throughout our weekend stay!

What a gem of a cottage. Stones throw away from the sea and a pub was perfect. Gorgeous bedding and comfortable bed. The views from the top bedroom was stunning and we often sat in the morning on the large stools with a coffee or a glass of wine at night to listen to the waves. Truly wonderful holiday.

We had a lovely relaxed break in Port Isaac and Castle Cottage. It was great being so close to the village heart, but also to step back in to your own space away from the crowds when you wanted.

We are not new visitors to Cornwall ( over fifty years!) However, this was our first stay in Port Isaac and it did not disappoint. Castle Cottage offers an excellent location; The Golden Lion is literally at the end if the path,as are the numerous gift shops and cafes. As with all quaint Cornish harbour villages be prepared for some steep climbs!

Typical Cornwall. Whats not to like. Enjoy.

Lovely place to stay, so near centre of Port Isaac. Very cosy and well furnished, loft studio ideal for someone who wants their own space. Would recommend you try and park nearby just for a few minutes to offload and load your luggage etc as very steep climb up and down to car park.

Beautiful cottage, in a great location.

Quaint cottage in fantastic location in port issac

Our 3 stay at Castle Cottage and we enjoyed every minute. The cottage is so welcoming, clean and comfy. The views from the top bedroom are brilliant and we even spotted Doc Martin being filmed outside his house from the top window! The new laundry room is very useful and shower is fantastic! It really is home from home. We love it here!

Castle Cottage is lovely. It's well equipped, located right in the heart of Port Isaac and has some lovely views. 100m from the pub too!

A cosy, warm and well appointed cottage. We had a very comfortable stay. The cottage has a lovely ambience and we felt really at home. The centre of the village is a very short walk away, so handy for the local pubs and restaurants. Would highly recommend this cottage.

The cottage was beautifully furnished, equipt with everything and perfectly situated. We couldn't have asked for more. The service from Aspect was faultless. Very impressed.

A lovely cottage to stay in - and in a good location, ideal as a base for day trips to St.Ives, Boscastle and Port Gaverne is worth a visit too - the pub is cosy and has a great view.

Would recommend castle cottage as a wonderful comfortable stay in a beautiful location.

We had a fantastic second visit at Castle Cottage. The location of the property is so convenient and it’s great to find a cottage in Port Isaac which is dog friendly. The house has everything you could want and more! The twin bedroom ond the third floor is beautiful and what a view too! The house was clean and beautifully furnished. We look forwards to coming back in the near future!

A very comfortable stay at Castle Cottage. The cottage was warm and welcoming. The views from top floor bedroom were fabulous. Great location in the heart of the village. A most memorable New Years break, looking forward to returning in May. 

Great location for the pub, cafes and restaurants, as well as the fishing beach. Fun character property with quirky features and a great sea view from the top floor.
