If you were looking for cottages like The Shrimp, how about trying these:

Cute as a button, totally unique and utterly adorable - welcome to The Shrimp! This tiny fisherman's cottage is set in the heart of the picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac, so you can throw yourself into village life from this prime location with the harbour, shop, galleries, pubs and restaurants all a few steps away. In fact, when the Fisherman's Friends sing on the quay in the summer months you only need to open the front door to hear their delightful sea shanties. This traditional, one up one down, fisherman's cottage oozes character by the bucketful with flagstone floors, exposed beams and stone walls and has been styled to retain much of its rustic charm. Downstairs there's a small dining-table that overlooks the lane, a sofa to relax on after a busy day in north Cornwall and a compact but sufficiently equipped kitchen - but with not one, but two Nathan Outlaw restaurants in the village and a whole host of other great places to eat and drink do you really want to be cooking whilst you're on holiday? Steep ladder stairs lead up to the bedroom (only suitable for those who are very agile) which even for a cottage this small has a king-sized bed (accessible from one side) and after all that sea air you will be assured of a good night's sleep. The bedroom has a small sink and the shower-room leads off from the bedroom - what more do you need!
