Nearest pub

The Golden Lion (200 yards)

With stunning views over the water, this tradional pub offers a warm welcome and locally sourced home made food. A great place to stop off for a crab sandwich and a pint and you might even see Doc Martin making house calls!

Nearest beach

Port Gaverne Cove (¼ mile)

Due to its sheltered nature this narrow cove is very safe for children offering a small sandy beach with rock pools to explore at low tide. In a peaceful beach-front village around the headland of Port Isaac, the beach is overlooked by high cliffs on either side with amenities close to hand.

Pretty and safe beach for children

We spent a lovely day on the beach at Port Gaverne - exploring rockpools at high tide and paddling in the safe shallow sandy waters at low tide. Finished off with a beach barbeque and grilled some fresh mackerel landed from a friendly fisherman's boat. Perfect.

Nearest walk

The 'Doc Martin' Walk (1 ½ miles)

A lovely seven mile circular walk which takes you past some of the memorable features of the popular Doc Martin series including Bert's Cafe, the school and the Doc's house. The walk follows some coastal path and is challenging in places. Park in the National Trust car park and follow the details on the Web site. Port Isaac has some lovely cafes, perfect for a mid-walk cream tea!

Nearest town

Port Isaac (¼ mile)

You might well recognise some of Port Isaac’s winding lanes and its harbour; the port has long been a star of both the big and small screens, most notably in ‘Doc Martin’ and ‘Saving Grace’. This is Cornwall at its most quaint with streets so steep and narrow that in many places cars simply don’t fit. For a great meal of fresh fish landed at Port Isaac’s harbour, the Edge Restaurant is a brilliant choice and somehow those panoramic views out to sea from the tables add to the flavour.

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!

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.

Port Gaverne Hotel and Restaurant (½ mile)

A beautifully restored traditional whitewashed inn in an outstanding location.

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.

St Kew Inn (3 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.

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.

Fresh From The Sea (200 yards)

Owners Calum and Tracey Greenhalgh live locally and Calum takes his own boat out daily to catch crab and lobster. You can buy locally caught fish here and visit for a crab sandwich or lobster salad in their sunny courtyard (or inside if wet). Recommended by Nathan Outlaw in the Times newspaper as one of the top 5 places for fish in Cornwall!

Fresh from the Sea

If you want a fresh tasty lunch and don't want to pay restaurant prices then visit Fresh from the sea. The friendly staff freshly prepare a range of foods and we enjoyed (on two visits) lobster,crab and prawn sandwiches. We ate there on our first visit, to dodge the rain and even had a couple of glasses of wine to compliment the food. Very informal and child friendly.
