Holidays in Port Isaac

Port Isaac is a picturesque fishing village on the North coast of Cornwall, made famous by the popular TV series Doc Martin. With Padstow and Tintagel just a short drive away, you're well placed to explore the surrounding area, and with fine dining on the doorstep, Port Isaac is perfect for a self-catering holiday.

Situated in a National Landscape (formerly Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), it’s clear why so many people have fallen in love with this traditional fishing village. Steeped in history, the harbour and many of the cottages date back centuries, with little unchanged by time. Today, visitors travel from afar to experience the quaint village with winding streets and narrow alleyways. Tucked into the rugged coastline, the harbour has always played a key role in the community, with fishermen still landing crabs and lobsters daily.
