The location of attractions is intended only as a guide. Distances are 'as the crow flies'.

Nearest pub

The Cornish Arms, Port Isaac (1 mile)

A traditional Cornish pub which serves home made locally sourced food and Thai cuisine made by their chef from Bangkok.

Nearest beach

Barrett's Zawn (2 ¼ miles)

Difficult access mainly due to substantial cliff falls giving way to loose rock and scree. If you do manage to find a way down watch out for strong currents. Not for the faint hearted and not recommended for swimmers or surfers.

Nearest walk

St Kew Round Walk (1 ½ miles)

Take this five and a half mile ramble from St Kew to the villages of St Endillion and Tregellist. The walk takes in a woodland path and country lanes. Pop in to Trevathan fruit farm en-route. Take a look at the iwalkcormwall website for further details and other lovely walks in the area.

Nearest town

Port Gaverne (2 ¾ miles)

This sweet harbour village is a near neighbour of the better-known Port Isaac; it has just as much classic Cornish character yet remains relatively free of crowds in the summer. At low tide a small sandy beach is revealed along with rockpools that trap countless crabs, shrimps and tiny fish, providing hours of entertainment for children. Away from the beach, the whitewashed Port Gaverne Hotel tempts visitors with local seafood cooked to perfection.

Also nearby

St Kew Pottery (1 ½ miles)

Feeling artistic? Try your hand at some pottery, still life or life drawing classes with potter Jon Whitten. Jon, whose work can be found in collections in Europe, Japan, New Zealand and the US, specialises in contemporary, wheel thrown pottery, a large collection of which is on display here, and is available to buy.

If the weather is not so good!

I should have said whether the weather is good or bad an interesting couple of hours learning the art of pottery with your host Jon. Can even take your works of art (or otherwise!) back home with you. Thank you, Jon.

St Kew Inn (1 ½ miles)

This 15th Century village pub was once home to the masons and craftsmen who constructed the nearby church of St James the Great. Today, you will find a welcoming bar and restaurant, with blazing fire in the winter, and a large beer garden for those balmy Cornish summer evenings. Look out for the resident ghost.

idyllic country pub

A warm welcome and helpful staff. The food was great - the haddock kedgeree was worth the trip alone.

Beautiful and Atmospheric

Picturesque 15th Century village pub serving beer from wooden barrels and excellent homecooked food prepared to order by hosts Paul Ripley and Sarah Allen. One of the most beautiful and atmospheric pubs in Cornwall.

Port Isaac (2 ¾ miles)

When you think of a Cornish seaside destination, images of Port Isaac will come to mind. A quintessential Cornish fishing village, it is a popular holiday destination so there are plenty of self catering cottages in Port Isaac to choose from. With fisherman’s cottages forming narrow winding streets leading steeply down to the stone walled harbour, dotted with colourful vessels of all shapes and sizes. In fact many of the streets here are so traditional and narrow, including the aptly-named ‘Squeezebelly Alley’, a car is not an option so leave it behind while you take to exploring the architecture by foot. Many of the old buildings are listed as being of historical importance and certainly add to the ambience. The fishing industry is still at work here, left over from its days as a busy coastal port in the mid-19th Century.
Port Isaac cottages and Harbour Coast path near Port Isaac
The inspiration for many a painting, there are plenty of photo opportunities to be had with the lobster cages and wooden rowing boats along the harbour wall. Set down on the seashore, the surrounding area is very hilly and steep, which allows for far reaching views, and several pretty streams wind their way down to the waterfront. Take a boat trip for a spot of sea fishing or just a scenic float-along during the holiday season or walk along the coastal path for panoramic sea views and dramatic cliffs.

The village of Port Isaac, is now most recognisable as Port Wenn, thanks to being chosen as the setting for the television series, Doc Martin. However, many other movies and tv programs have been filmed here such as ‘Saving Grace’ (again, starring Martin Clunes) and ‘Amy Foster’ with Sir Ian McKellen. It was also frequently used as a set for the Poldark series. The locals are very welcoming and are a tourist attraction in their own right with the formation of Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends - a group of Cornish shanty singers with a strong following.

A holiday in a Port Isaac cottage will be an excellent way to explore the north coast as there are many good beaches nearby such as the surfing beach of Polzeath and the family-friendly wide stretch of sand at Daymer Bay, which is also dog-friendly. It’s only a short drive to bigger towns such as Padstow, famed for its Rick Stein dominated restaurants, and Tintagel with the historic castle ruins. Being on the north coast, it is close to the Camel Trail which follows the River Camel to Padstow, an excellent cycling, walking or horse riding route.

Doc Martin Filming in Port Isaac

They are presently filming a new series of Doc Martin in Port Isaac so keep your eyes open for Martin Clunes and the rest of the cast and crew. And when you get home it's great fun to spot the scenes you saw being filmed!

We had a fantastic meal on our last night at Port Gaverne. The staff were very obliging and helpful, as we were a large party we were able to have the upstairs lounge with a balcony and lovely views over the harbour. We will definitely eat here again if we are in the area.

Fantastic old fashioned pub next to the beach

The Port Gaverne is a lovely traditional inn with a great atmosphere and just across the road from Port Gaverne beach. The food is very nice - hearty and home cooked.

The Longcross Hotel and Gardens (3 ¼ miles)

Fine dining on the north Cornwall coast. Food is beautifully prepared and cooked to order. You can also wander around the Victorian gardens which are adjacent to the hotel.

The Longcross Hotel

About 3 miles from Port Gaverne the hotel has wonderful views from its terrace and lovely Victorian gardens. We always visit to have lunch or dinner. The food is always great and the staff friendly and helpful.

Wonderful location with beautiful views over the bay. Very child friendly and helpful staff ensure the children are happy with colouring pads and pens so mum and dad can enjoy their meal!!
Wonderful food and not too expensive for the beautiful surroundings. Would highly recommend.
