Stroma is a Victorian semi-detached house perched above the cove at Port Isaac overlooking Port Gaverne and its sheltered beach. With stunning sea views from the sitting-area and from four of the bedrooms, the vista stretches out beyond Castle Rock across the bay towards Tintagel and, on a clear day, over the sea to Lundy Island. Sympathetically restored, this period home is furnished with flair, ideal for friends and family to holiday together. The large open plan living-room has painted floors and deep cosy sofas surrounding the dramatic marble fireplace, with the views creating a constantly changing backdrop. Old slate floors, bespoke kitchen units with very smart slate worktops and a ceramic butler’s sink complement the large family cooking and dining areas. Upstairs, the bedrooms are divided on two floors, all decorated in neutral tones and with pretty bed linens. The bathrooms are anything but Victorian, with travertine tiles and one with a free-standing bath! Outside to the front of Stroma, a spacious deck will provide hours of coast watching, whilst the terraced garden is to the rear. Nearby there are wonderful beaches and the surfing centre of Polzeath, and some of Cornwall’s most popular attractions are within a short distance.
Stroma promises a holiday where you can forget the car for the duration of your stay. Port Isaac is very much a thriving fishing village, with shops, restaurants, pubs and fresh fish in plentiful supply. Just think how rested you will be after a week of waking to the sounds of the sea, a quick dip in the mornings down on the shores of Port Gaverne, followed by a brisk walk into the village to buy the supplies for the day. You will be easily distracted by the enticing shops, whose wares range from locally-based stories about seagulls to flamboyant clothes.
