Port Isaac holiday cottages
Port Isaac is a tiny picturesque fishing village tucked up on the Atlantic coast of north Cornwall, in England.
With its steep hills, tiny, narrow and winding streets and whitewashed fisherman’s cottages, Port Isaac is, to many, exactly what a quintessential Cornish fishing village should be.
The location for Doc Martin and Fisherman's Friends
A long standing, popular destination on any visitor’s tour of Cornwall, Port Isaac has more recently become famous as the setting for Port Wenn, the fictional base for the TV drama ‘Doc Martin’. Indeed, visitors in the summer months can often find film crews and actors recording on the beach and throughout the town.
Port Isaac was also the location for the British feel good film of 2019, ‘Fisherman’s Friends’, which charts the rise of the real life shanty group who all grew up within half a mile of Port Isaac – and who can still be heard singing there today!
Where to eat out in Port Isaac
Foodies flock to dine at the harbour side Fish Kitchen or Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, whilst those looking for the best pub in the village can head to The Golden Lion for a pint of Korev (the craft beer from St Austell) and some fresh seafood.
Visitors to this area may also like to visit nearby Port Quin and Port Gaverne. Whilst the towns of Wadebridge and Camelford are just a short drive away.
