Port Isaac

The small vibrant fishing village of Port Isaac is one of Cornwall’s most well known and popular holiday destinations.

Port Isaac was a busy coastal port from the Middle Ages to the mid 19th century when it was an active harbour where stone, coal, timber and pottery were loaded.

Most of the old centre of the village consists of 18th and 19th century cottages, many of which have architectural or historic importance.

Below is Roscarrock Hill and ‘The Platt’ – a small open area, and slip way, where the local fishermen store there crab pots and land their catches of fish, crab and lobsters.

Nowadays one of the main attractions, that attracts hordes of fans – beyond the natural beauty – is that the popular TV series Doc Martin was filmed here.

Port Isaac has many traditional white washed cottages and granite slate fronted houses and exploring the tangle of little alley ways is a delight.
