  • "The property was very clean, one of the cleanest we have stayed in, and well equipped."

    Good information on the property, places to visit and restaurants. We made use of the log burner. The bed was very comfortable with an excellent view of the sea to enjoy with your morning cup of tea. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are so pleased that you found the property comfortable and enjoyed the lovely views. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back again in the future - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "We love staying at Castaway, it is a beautiful location with gorgeous sea views."

    This is the reason we have stayed here for the last five years. Our observations are as follows; it would benefit from a larger more comfortable sofa in the living area, the mattress on the main bed could also do with replacing. We had two toilet rolls for a week, left in the cottage, which is not enough for a two week stay; on the last stays there were a box of tissues in the bedroom, there wasn’t this year. The above observations are for the owners not to be published. Many thanks Amy and james macwhirter

  • "This is a lovely cottage with beautiful views."

    Well equipped, nice garden. Getting out of parking space a bit challenging! The only thing that stopped me awarding five stars was the very hard king size mattress which meant I did not sleep well and got up aching. Otherwise a lovely stay in this much loved village.

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back very soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

  • "Really beautiful cottage with stunning views …well equipped and cosy."

    However, there was a horrible smell in the master bedroom, coming from the en suite we are assuming…and the towel rail in the main bathroom wasn’t switched on and there was no way we could locate the switch as we think it was behind a locked cupboard.Looking back at past reviews we can see the smell was mentioned before…this really needs fixing as it marred what was a lovely stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by these issues, these have been reported to our team.

    If this had been laid out in the property description we probably would not have booked this property.

  • "The hot water was a big issue, when our son stayed at weekend there was only enough for one of them, even in the morning still no warm water for a shower."

    More hot water needed at all times. Also there was a smell in en-suite half way through week which was very unpleasant. The bed felt very hard to begin with in double room, but to be fair we did get used to it. After saying this we may be back as the views and cosines of the cottage was sublime, if issues were fixed, it would be second to none. However parking is not suitable for large cars and only 1 space.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. I am sorry that you had problems with the hot water during your stay at Castaway and there wasn’t enough for your whole family. We will inform our maintenance team and the owner and get this looked into as it is not an issue, we have been made aware of before. We will also try to address the smell in the ensuite. We are very glad that overall, you found the cottage to be cosy and enjoyed the spectacular views. We do hope that it won’t be too long before we get to welcome you back to North Cornwall.

    We loved the impressive sea views from the living-room and main bedroom, and the back garden was surprisingly large with its two patios. The furnishings and decor were very tasteful and amenities were excellent. The cottage was warm and cosy despite the freezing weather.

    We love the location and enjoyed the relative quiet of an out-of-season week. The property is spacious yet small enough to feel snug. The sea views from the lounge and main bedroom are great. The whole experience was very restorative.

  • "A wonderful stay - the cottage was beautiful and in a superb location."

    The photos of the garden don’t do it justice - we hadn’t realised it would be so big, a real bonus. The bottle of wine and fudge that was left out for us was a lovely thought, thank you. We really couldn’t fault it at all, other than the shower room was small, and it was a bit of a squeeze in the shower, but that’s just a niggle. We had an amazing week and will definitely be back.

  • "Lovely cottage and location."

    The views were wonderful. I could sit and watch the sea all day!! It was very warm and cosy. A bit tricky parking if you have a big car. Facilities in the cottage were great, but would have liked an instruction booklet to work the cooker, dishwasher and washing machine. We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay and would definitely come back.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Covid has challenged our housekeeping staff and restricted what can be left in the property (Handbooks, consumable etc) . Looking forward to seeing you again.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Castaway."

    With elevated views across the headland and sea, the house was beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean, warm and cosy, and in a perfect situation for walking to the village and along the coast path. We appreciated the bottle of wine and box of fudge - a nice touch thank you. The only thing which may be an issue for some guests is that when we went in January, only a couple of shops to buy nicknacks and a co-op were open, there was just one place to buy takeaway coffee or ice cream, and all the pubs and restaurants were closed.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, it is a lovely property, however we are sorry to hear the pubs, restaurants and shops were a bit sparse, as you can imagine Port Isaac gets very busy in the summer so winter is the only time they have time off to enjoy their holiday. We would love to welcome you back anytime in the future. .- John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Rated comfort down on the basis, that, as with many self-catering properties, there are aspects of tiredness; e."

    G. mattresses not all that comfortable refelcting that no process for the periodic turning of mattresses to even wear. Also, the cushion squabs for the settee felt were in need of replacement, seemed very worn and sunk low down which made it difficult to get out of on occaisions. Feel that the property description should refect: 1/ Whilst the main bedroom as an ensuite, it is very small, especially yhe shower tray, and 2/ Care needs to be taken when parking because of the overhang to the parking space and the steep incline of the parking space. Apart from the above, the property was excellent, a good location and the outside seating areas excellent for a relaxing holiday.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay, however we are sorry for the issues you encountered, we will liaise with the owner. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

About the location

PORT ISAAC

Polzeath 6.5 miles; Padstow 16 miles

Port Isaac; one of the true Cornish treasures. A beautiful fishing village nestling in a steep sided valley, the old village in the valley remains unchanged from its days of fishing, slate export and smuggling in the previous century. An abundance of small character properties complemented by larger cliff-top retreats, can be found with easy access to the numerous restaurants and shops of the village. 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. There are also plenty of pubs, restaurants, and shops in the village. Just a short drive from the beaches of Polzeath, Daymer and Rock, it is perfect for romantic and family holidays alike.
