Only two miles from Port Isaac of ‘Doc Martin’ fame and set within a 3.6 acre wildlife haven, Pottery Cottage is a characterful single-storey, stone-built barn designed and furnished with flair. The spacious living-room has exposed beams, slate floors and a 42’’ plasma television. Large granite columns divide the floor to ceiling French windows which open out onto the Mediterranean-style terraced garden. The bedrooms and en suite bathrooms are stylish and contemporary. St Kew Pottery is within the grounds, and guests interested in trying their hand can book a lesson. Detached Pottery Cottage is one of four holiday cottages at Hale, where the Owners, who also live on site, have been awarded a Green Tourism Business Scheme Gold award.
The sandy beaches of Polzeath and Rock, and Padstow harbour are all within easy reach; all by the sea, guests can surf, eat fantastic local produce, cycle the Camel Trail or have a drink at the renowned St Kew Inn before returning to their comfortable base to end the day enjoying the sunny terraces outside. There is so much to do in north Cornwall as the beaches are stunning. Polzeath is ideal for surfing and the Camel Trail at Wadebridge offers a great cycle to Padstow for all the family. In Padstow you will find a plethora of restaurants and shops to visit but do not miss out on the foot ferry over to Rock as this is a great jaunt across the water. At Port Isaac the Michelin Starred chef, Nathan Outlaw, has the tapas-style Fish Kitchen next to the harbour and his fine dining restaurant. At Rock, the Mariners and the Rock Inn serve locally brewed Sharps beer, locally sourced fish dishes and steaks supplied by the renowned Philip Warren Butchers. For those quick snacks the local baker Malcolm Barnecutt bakes great pasties to takeaway which can be enjoyed on the local beaches.
