Probably enjoying the best sea views in the village from almost every room, this stunning 200 year old cottage overlooks Port Isaac and its picturesque harbour. Enchanting Mount Pleasant, once a fisherman’s cottage, has large south-facing gardens, original slate floors, shipwright carpentry, low beams and sloping ceilings all adding to its charm. The kitchen is offset from the dining-room, where a step leads into the cosy sitting-room where plenty of books and board games are provided. If you want some quiet time there's a delightful second sitting-room/snug on the first floor where you can curl up with a good book or simply gaze out to sea and dream. Three bedrooms are divided over the first and second floors, all boasting spectacular harbour views; the first floor bathroom also has sea views – why not enjoy the ultimate in relaxation as you lie back in the roll-top bath and take in more of that sea view!. With pedestrian access only, Mount Pleasant is at the heart of the village – now famous for the television series Doc Martin and The Fisherman’s Friends' traditional sea shanties.
The spectacular coastal footpath runs through the village, offering stunning cliff walks in both directions. Should you wish to explore further afield, the beaches of Polzeath, Daymer Bay and the attractions of Rock and Padstow are all within easy reach. Port Isaac is also home to the award-winning, 3 Michelin Star chef Nathan Outlaw's latest restaurants 'Outlaw's Fish Kitchen' and 'Restaurant Nathan Outlaw' – both well worth a visit. With pedestrian access only please bring your suitcases on wheels, as parking (at a weekly charge) is in the public car park at the top of the village, 500 yards away (and up a fairly steep hill!) – but you may park in the main street (Fore Street) just to unload your vehicle, only a few yards from the turning leading to the cottage.
