Weathered walls welcoming you home. Slate floors cooling the soles of your feet. The twists and turns of staircases calling you up climb higher and seek out sea views. Listen to the whispers of history in this Grade II listed cottage in the heart of Port Isaac.
Whether you’re planning adventures around the wooden dining table or listening to evening tales unfold by the fireside, this pretty cottage is packed with character. And stacks of reasons you won’t want to leave.
Get out on foot and explore the locations from the TV Series Doc Martin (filmed in and around the village) or bob down to the harbour and enjoy a cheeky pint in the pub. Watch the boats and barter with the local fishermen to buy dinner. Or drop a line and catch your own.Accessibility
Rockpools is accessed straight from a public lane, 1 step over the front door frame and then 1 step down into the kitchen.
There is a door from the kitchen into a bathroom with WC, basin and separate shower.
12 narrow steps take you up to the first floor and the lounge/dining room then 9 step steps then take you up to the second floor and a double bedroom with open fire and hayloft window above and small bunk bedroom with 8 narrow steps up to a secret sleeping platform with double mattress which you have to climb into and out of. Some doorways are all quite low so please mind your head.
The nearest pub is in the heart of the village opposite the cottage.
