  • "The property was in a wonderful location looking out to sea, and convenient to the small coastal town of Port Issac."

    It was very clean and very well equipped with all that you would need for a self catering holiday. The finish and furnishings in the cottage were of a very high standard too. We had a lovely week staying at Cockleshell and would recommend it .

  • "The house was very warm and with set controlled temperatures difficult to deal with."

    We appreciate the weather became warmer but no means of turning the temperatures down. Locking windows in an open position would be good as anyone could have got into the property when windows were open at night, peace of mind when sleeping.

About the location


Polzeath 6 miles; Padstow 9 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. Only ten minutes drive from the beaches of Polzeath, Daymer and Rock, it is perfect for romantic and family holidays alike. There is ample parking at the top of the village.
