Doc Martin House
Tucked away on the North Cornish coastline is the beautiful fishing harbour of Port Isaac. The village harbour looks out to sea over a pier built in the reign of Henry VII. There are many delightful and interesting walks around the village, along the coast paths and in the surrounding countryside.
Although a popular holiday destination, the village retains its peaceful old world charm. In recent times the village has played host to the cast and crew of the popular television series ‘Doc Martin’ which is based in the village of Port Wenn (Port Isaac). Many a happy day can be spent meandering around the narrow streets with a wealth of local amenities available to you.
Port Isaac itself is, to this day, a working fishing harbour with local fishermen landing their catch daily. Spend time walking the coastal paths, have lunch in one of the many fine restaurants and pubs or just sit and relax in the harbour with a cool glass of wine – the choice is yours.
