Port Isaac is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, which you may recognize from the ITV drama series Doc Martin. A working fishing village, fishing boats leave the harbour on the high tide and return with their catch of crab, lobster and mackerel, providing the village's excellent restaurants with a bountiful supply of locally sourced fresh produce. If that isn't enough to whet your appetite, here is a brief look at some of Port Isaac's other attractions, and those of a few other places you might like to visit whilst using Port Isaac as a base...
Throughout the summer months the St. Minver Silver Band plays on Thursday evenings while a group of local shanty singers called The Fisherman's Friends, whose number includes your host, John McDonnell, sing on The Platt on Friday evenings (the video to the left features the group performing at the Albert Hall). Fishing trips can be arranged, along with surfing lessons and kayaking trips.
Port Isaac is home to many talented artists, potters, authors and other artisans all of whom have their work on display in the village. Take a walk along Fore Street and you will find the shop owned by the Fisherman's Friend and author of the renowned "Gully the Seagull" children's books, John Cleave; walk a little further towards the port and you will come across Jackie Llewelyn Bowen's designer outlet, Charmed.
During your stay you may like to take a day out at The Eden Project, take the ferry from Rock to Padstow or visit Boscastle and Tintagel, legendary home of King Arthur. If you're looking for a lazy day on the beach, it is only a short drive to Daymer Bay, just beyond the surfer's haven of Polzeath.
