  • "Pretty cottage over all excellent, clean and well equiped, great position, easy access to village and Nathan Outlaws."

    Parking space in front for one car. We able to get V60 volvo estate into space. Nice little garden with dining space and fire pit was raining during our trip so did not use it. Dog friendly well placed to access coastal path. Missing toilet seat cover and sink mirror/ shaver socket hummed couldn't work out how to turn it off. Minor issues though a lovely stay

    Hello thank you so much for your lovely feedback and so glad you had a great time. Thanks for letting us know about the toilet seat - we had no idea it was missing! We’ll get that sorted straight away and we are there in a couple of weeks so we’ll get the shaver socket sorted. Hope you come back to Port Isaac very soon. Louise Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage very well designed, however a few issues like no lock on the bathroom door in fact it hardly closed properly which is no good with a mixed generational group."

    Carpet outside bathroom door needs fixing as it has come away from gripper rod which was painful to step on. Garden needs a tidy up loads of fag ends outside the back door to the right hand side and a drinks bottle to the left, it could do with a general tidy up. Kitchen floor has a few issues with edging strip coming up in a few places.

  • "We had a fabulous time staying at The Blue Lobster Cottage in Port Isaac."

    It was a last minute booking and we are so happy we chose this cottage. The owners have really thought about the decor and what is needed from a holiday let. The cottage was super comfortable for our family of 4 and the dog. The addition of the parking space and utility room/beach house was super. Especially after a few rainy and sunny beach days! We'll definitely be returning in the future!

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are so please you enjoyed your stay at Blue Lobster cottage, we look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

  • "Literally the worst level of service we have ever experienced in holiday rental!"

    I suspect John Bray was once a good local business before it was bought.

  • "We stayed at the Blue Lobster cottage for a week (2 people, one dog)."

    It was a great space for me and my Mum, and an ideal location to walk down to Port Issac or to Port Gaverne - Better for Morning Swims/Paddle boarding. The cottage had everything you would need for your stay, and with the English weather, it’s great for sunny days and rainy days inside. The parking is good for a small car with some power, we drove a Mini Sport Automatic and parked each day with no issues. Anything bigger could potentially be tricky but there is on road parking further up which was free. We are looking at rebooking for next year.

    Thank you for your kind comments regarding your stay at Blue Lobster Cottage. We very much look forward to welcoming you back on your return next year. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, beautifully decorated and with everything we needed."

    Only complaint was that the car parking space is very small. we managed to park there once but then couldn't unload the car. we managed to find parking in the carpark around the corner, but I imaging in high season this would be very difficult.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back anytime in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Thank you so much for your lovely comments about our cottage and so glad you had a lovely stay. I just wanted to let you know that we have this week had the wall taken down between us and our neighbours and the drive re-laid, making parking much easier. We had hoped to have this done before Easter but our builder was delayed. As you mentioned there is also a car park just 2 minutes walk away but now parking on the front is vastly improved and we hope to get some new pictures done very soon. Many thanks.

  • "The most enjoyable week at Blue Lobster Cottage."

    From the moment we walked in it felt very warm and welcoming. The beds and facilities were excellent- it had everything we needed and more! The boys particularly loved the board games and football table in the Beach House Utility. It was the perfect base to explore beautiful North Cornwall. We’d love to return in the near future. Thank you x

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback - we really appreciate it. The games table is a new addition so I'm so pleased your boys enjoyed it. Glad you had a lovely New Year and hope to see you back with us again soon. Louise Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely weeks stay."

    The cottage is clean and very well equipped and thought of everything you could need for a week away. As a family of 5 it was a little on the small side for us, although we did spend most of our time out exploring Cornwall. The parking however is a nightmare with 3 little ones. We have a Q7 and there was no chance we could fit on the space, agree with other reviews that the extra expense of the car parking wasn’t clear when booking. We upset some of the neighbours when unloading when we arrived, but was impossible to park in the car park and carry all our belongings up the hill with three young children. Again because of this we wouldn’t stay again which is a shame as it’s in a lovely location and clean.

    Hi Charlotte, thanks for your feedback we really appreciate it - we've only been renting our home for a few weeks so it's good to hear your thoughts. Glad you had a good week in Cornwall and I hope you found the recommendations I sent you useful. When we bought the cottage we were so pleased it had parking all be it on the small side as a lot of the cottages in the seaside villages don't due to their age (ours is over 100 years old). We appreciate that it is tight especially if you have a big car which is why we put the measurements on the description and mentioned there is alternative parking. I think the best thing I can do is to speak to John Bray about putting the prices of the car parks on the description as well to help make it clearer- I know the lower car park which is just around the corner is £36 for the week in high season. Thanks for letting us know your thoughts and I'm really glad you had a lovely time in Cornwall. Best wishes. Louise. Property Owner

  • "Very clean and well equipped accommodation."

    Comfortable beds and newly furnished. We think that the accommodation is on the small side for a growing family of 4. Whilst the lounge is nicely decorated, it's not that comfortable as the sofas are small and hard. Be really nice if a soft sofa was in there. Garden is impractical for children and the BBQ is not suitable so didn't use all week. The biggest issue by far is the parking space. We have a VW Golf and we could not fit it in. Whilst it's appreciated that the dimensions are on the sales details, the fact that there is a concrete wall either side really limits getting into the space. With this I've had to spend £70 on parking at the main car park at the top of the hill. A huge inconvenience especially when I thought I was booking a property with parking. With this I would not use the property again or recommend to our friends and family either. The parking is insufficient and I feel miss sold on this point which is a shame. We had a good week in Cornwall using this property as a base but it's not a dwelling to kick back and relax in due to some issues noted. Regards Richard.

    Hello Richard, Thank you so much for your feedback, we have only just started letting our home so really appreciate it. I'm sorry you struggled to park your car, we do understand that it is tight which is why we put the dimensions on the website and the other parking options that are close by. I park my XTrail in the space but I'm obviously used to it and we know not everybody would be comfortable trying to do so. We've tried to make sure the pictures give you a good overall view of the cottage but we will have a look and see if we can take some more detailed pictures of the parking to help make it clearer for future guests. Once again we are very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. We really hope you enjoyed your time in Port Isaac and we wish you all the very best. Kind regards, Louise. Property Owner

  • "Only minor downside is the parking - any long and low-down car is going to damage their front and/or rear bumper as it's so tight with all the kerbstones and mini-walls around."

    However, it's cheap enough to park down the road anyway (JustPark so you can do it whilst in the property if you need to extend), so I'd recommend that and save future owners the stress of trying to get it into the space and damaging the car (like I did, after a tired 7 hour drive!). But other than that, the place is SUPERB!!!!!!!

    Hi Mark, Thank you so much for your feedback, we really appreciate it. We understand the parking is tight and we are hoping to remove the smaller wall later in the year which hopefully will help. So glad you liked our home - we've spent the last 6 months renovating the cottage and it means the world to us. Once again thank you so much for your feedback and hope you had a wonderful holiday. Kind regards Louise Property Owner

The sandy harbour provides an abundance of rock pools as the tide retreats. There is ample parking at the top of the village and the village is a popular tourist destination with plenty of attractions including the dramatic Doyden Castle, the beautiful Lundy Bay and the famous Doc Martin's clinic.
