Port Isaac and North Cornwall have so much to offer!
Port Isaac has been welcoming visitors for more than 100 yrs, but unlike many other villages in Cornwall, it still retains it traditional character and remains unspoilt.
It is a cluster of pretty white washed cottages huddled around a picturesque harbour, which is the heart of a thriving fishing community. It has steep hills and narrow streets and the harbour is flanked by majestic cliffs, towering above the Atlantic. Port Isaac has numerous restaurants, specialising in local seafood, shops for all essentials, a pub and a wide selection of local arts and crafts.
Fishing trips can be taken from the harbour, where you can catch your own mackerel and Even spot a dolphin or two! Or spend an evening listening to the “Fishermans’ Friends” shanty singers.
Port Isaac is ideally located for trips to nearby stunning beaches, water sport activities, idyllic Cornish villages and popular tourist attractions.
