Port Isaac, tucked away on the North Coast between Padstow and Boscastle, has recently been home to the television series 'Doc Martin' with Martin Clunes. Although previous years have seen the series Poldark film here and in nearby Port Quinn. Much of the village is 18th and 19th century and there a wonderful narrow streets and alleyways to explore. It is a maze of narrow lanes and pathways known as "drangs" with only one road through, along which traffic is discouraged. The houses are traditional stone built, slate hung cottages. As with many places in Cornwall, once having relied heavily on fishing and fish processing, the village now caters for many visitors with plenty of shops and eateries for the frequent visitors. In the heart of the village are a pub, two hotels, two cafe / bistros. There are other pubs and a cafe at the top of the village. There is a bakery, delicatessen, fishmongers and a well stocked Coop supermarket. Fish may also be bought from the local fishmerchants in the fish cellars by the harbour. There are also the usual art and craft shops.
Those interested in fishing may hire a local boat and fisherman. Kayaking may also be arranged in the village. The National Trust coastal path runs through the village and provides spectacular walks over the cliffs. Many places of interest are in easy reach: Pencarrow House, Tintagel, The Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan along with many others. Padstow is close by with its many restaurants and attractions. It can be visited by the foot ferry from Rock and trips may be made out to sea, with puffins on the nearby islands at the right time of year. At Rock there are excellent beaches and boats may be hired from the sailing school along with windsurfers. Other good sandy beaches are at Polzeath and Trebarwith, both of which cater for windsurfing. There is also Daymer Bay, a famous windsurfing spot. From Daymer, it is just a short walk to St. Enedoc church where Sir John Betjeman is buried. Wadebridge has shops of interest and makes a pleasant wander round.

Fantastic cottage a stones throw from the harbour and superb pub. We ate in the evening by the waters edge as we carried our dinner the 30 seconds walk to get there! Clean and perfect for our family of four. A little tired around the edges and one tiny shower/toilet but perfectly adequate for what we needed. Value for money was high and would recommend for anyone that wanted location at an affordable price.

Guest from stayed for 14 nights.
This is a typical fisherman's cottage and falls across three floors. It is very cosy and has everything you need from a self catering unit - washing machine, stove, shower, TV. There is only one bathroom, which is tricky as it is a 6 sleeper and if you have a problem with your knees the stairs are very steep! Craig and Sarah were very helpful with all our needs and came out same day to help!
Guest from Selma stayed for 3 nights.
This is a nice cottage tucked in a beautiful village. It is three floors of tight, steep stairs almost ladders.
Guest from Perton stayed for 7 nights.
Perfectly situated in an amazing location and Everything you need on your door step. Cottage was well equipped for our family for the weeks we stayed, beds were comfortable and clean and the rooms were a good size. Shower room was on the small side but perfectly acceptable for a holiday stay. Paying for parking was a bit of a pain but that was the only thing I would say i wasn't too happy about. Would definitely go back again
Guest from Newport stayed for 7 nights.
Beautiful location in the heart of Port Isaac, unfortunately let down by very poor standards of cleanliness especially on ground floor. Shame as it has the potential to be a great cottage. As described it has a very small shower room on 1st floor. Smallest shower cubical that I have ever seen. Noisiest seagulls ever heard. Also not able to put rubbish out for collection as no correct bins.(council refused to take rubbish). Due to cleanliness, could not recommended. Such a shame.

Jacob's Cottage is ideally located on Fore Street, right in the centre of Port Isaac village, just seconds from the beach. I was a bit worried beforehand, because I'd read bad reviews of the cottage after making my booking, but I was pleasantly surprised. The bathroom is a bit on the small side, probably under-sized for the 6 people the property can sleep.The toilet seat is cracked and badly in need of replacement. The kitchen urgently needs an extractor as the slightest bit of smoke from the range cooker, even with the windows and door open, sets-off the smoke alarms on the first and second floors - which is both reassuring and very annoying. The furniture in the lounge is a bit old and not especially comfortable, but the beds were great. parking is a problem in the whole of Port Isaac, but I knew that when I booked the cottage, and the walk to the clifftop car park was good exercise. I am very keen to have anywhere I stay on holiday as clean as my own home, to that end having only a dust pan and small brush, rather than a proper broom, made keeping the floors clean unnecessarily difficult - and the cottage badly needs a decent vacuum cleaner, the present "Henry" is completely inadequate and inefficient. Overall I would recommend this property and was have no hesitation is booking it again.

After a long drive down from Oldham we arrived in the lovely village of Port Isaac, first impressions of the cottage as they say are last, the impression we got was a front door which was badly in need of a coat of paint along with the window sill, it might sound trivial, but it also matters, ok we entered the cottage, and as was described in web site write along with pictures, it was quaint, traditional and very functional for a couple, but I would not recommend a couple with young children as the stairs are quite steep, and the top landing is easy to miss if kids step out in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, the bathroom is extremely small especially the shower, I am 13 & 1/2 st and just about managed, the kitchen is well presented the range cooker is really good, you'll find everything you need in the kitchen, the lounge on the 1st floor is comfortable enough for a small party and seats 4 or 5 reasonably, the bedrooms are comfortable and clean although no wardrobes (hanging rail) in bedroom with a single and bunk beds on top floor but adequate. The location of the cottage couldn't be better, even if it is positioned on the corner, where quite large delivery vans turn going up and down the hill, but don't worry this isn't all day, I talking the odd one or two here, the cottage is just a few steps from everything you could want, pub, café, restaurants, the slipway where we had the pleasure of seeing a local band of singers (The Fishermans Friends) doing a live performance on our last evening, the walks are stunning we came back home a lot fitter than when we left. When parking it helps to know a little more about where the car park is located, if you unload your vehicle the road being very narrow park your car in from of the bollards just before you turn right at the The Krab Pot (which is lovely) then drive the very short distance to the slipway turn around and go back up the hill as if leaving the village, at the top turn left (New Rd) the car park is a short way up on the left and costs £5 per 24 hour stay, when you have put your ticket in the car, go down to the sea wall turn left onto the coastal path this will lead you right back down into the village. Gillie, I hope that I haven't appeared to be to negative about your lovely cottage, we did enjoy our stay, it's just that with a little attention to fine detail it could and would be a little gem of a place, thank you for allowing us to stay.

The stay at Jacobs cottage was ok but i found the cottage to be a bit neglected and shabby. The bedrooms were clean and tidy but the bathroom to small for 6 people.
