Enjoying one of the best sea views in the village from almost every room, this stunning 200 year old cottage overlooks Port Isaac and its picturesque harbour. Once a fisherman's cottage, enchanting Mount Pleasant not only boasts great views but a south-facing garden and the most stunning interiors - it's a real winner on every level. From this plum location you can simply relax and soak in that view or throw yourself into village life 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 window to hear their delightful sea shanties.
With only pedestrian access, this traditional, semi-detached, fisherman's cottage oozes character by the bucketful with exposed beams, flagstone floors, sloping ceilings (please mind your head) and shipwright carpentry. Set over three floors, the charming dining-room provides a warm welcome behind which you'll find the galley kitchen which has everything you will need for cooking up some holiday treats - 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?
The stairs lead up to the stylish sitting-room on the first floor. A wonderfully light and airy room where you are sure to unwind and relax whilst, of course, soaking up that view. Up again and you will arrive at the bedroom - this room is an absolute beauty, styled to perfection, and with a super comfy king-size bed, oh and of course more of those views, you will be assured of a good night's sleep.
Port Isaac is a real treasure. With its traditional fishing harbour and higgledy-piggledy cottages lining the narrow streets it could be set back in time, but add to this a vibrant community, stylish shops and galleries, pubs and cafes galore not to mention some fabulous walks, and it really is a magical haven for a great holiday. Now famous for TV's Doc Martin - if you time it right you might catch them filming - as well as being home to the Fisherman's Friends, both have helped to put Port Isaac well and truly on the tourist map.
You could ditch the car and easily spend your whole time in the village and who could blame you, but if you want to venture a little further afield, there are even more treasures to discover. The spectacular coastal footpath runs through the village, offering stunning cliff walks in both directions, and the beaches at Polzeath and Daymer Bay are quite stunning. At Rock, you can try your hand at sailing or windsurfing or take the foot ferry over to Padstow and indulge in more culinary delights. From the vibrant town of Wadebridge, after browsing the shops, you can cycle along the Camel Trail leading off to Bodmin Moor in one direction and Padstow in the other, and if you want to see some historic houses on a large scale Pencarrow and Lanhydrock should do the trick.
