Situated up above Port Isaac, Anchorage nestles amongst its elegant neighbours in a popular terrace overlooking Port Gaverne cove on the north Cornish coast. From its elevated position this stunning Victorian house, lovingly and skillfully restored to provide an exceptional home-from-home, boasts breathtaking panoramic views across the sea, cliffs and coastline. The seascape forms the backdrop to the spacious and welcoming sitting-room, which leads into the glass-roofed dining-area where delicious meals can be prepared in the modern, well-equipped kitchen. Throughout Anchorage neutral tones complement the original Cornish slate-flooring in the kitchen and the tiles used in the bath and shower-rooms. As the house is in true 19th Century style, staircases lead to all the bedrooms, split over three levels and each with its own bath or shower room. The sitting-room and two bedrooms have full sea views, spectacular whatever the weather. Step outside, and dine al fresco in the landscaped, enclosed terraced garden, gather round the firepit and enjoy special moments together or pull up a chair on the delightful front terrace and simply sit back and relax as the sun sets out to sea. This really is a terrific house for a family gathering or celebration or a group of friends who simply need an excuse to get together.
Port Isaac is utterly delightful with its winding narrow streets, eclectic shops, tea-rooms, restaurants, pubs, and the odd celebrity chef! In fact, Port Isaac is home to the Good Food Guide 2018 No.1 Restaurant 'Restaurant Nathan Outlaw'! During the summer months you might be lucky enough to catch a live performance from the Fisherman’s Friends as they delight crowds on the Platt with their enchanting sea shanties. Port Gaverne, only a short stroll down the road from Anchorage, is a sheltered cove where children and adults alike will enjoy the crystal clear blue sea or for those looking for a true adrenaline rush here you can link up with Cornish Rock Tors who offer coasteering, rock climbing and sea kayaking. Coastal walks are a must in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and for those who want to ride the waves, the stunning surfing beach of Polzeath is also close by.
