  • "Very disappointed that we had to make our own beds on arrival and we were left only 1 very small teatowel."

    Also only 1 key despite reporting this on our first day to the helpline. Also don't like the impersonality of contact, noone to meet you. Preferred the way John Bray looked after us in our previous holidays.

    Hello Helen. Thank you for your feedback. We are very disappointed to see your comments. We have had discussed this with John Bray as your experience fell well below the expected standard of service - hopefully this will not happen again. We have also fixed an extra key in the property as you mention one set isn’t really sufficient. David and Joanna Property Owner

  • "Position of cottage was perfect lovely to have an outdoor space."

    Back door needs a good push to open it after unlocking Could do with hooks for coats especially if they are wet All facilities we’re excellent so this is in no way a detrimental comment just a point and a suggestion Could do with better directions to the cottage from John Bray and clearer information in the cottage about rubbish and recycling collection A most enjoyable stay, excellent position, pretty cottage, beautifully appointed.

    Hello Lindsey. Thank you so much for your feedback. We are terribly sorry that you struggled with the back door. It’s a brand new door and one of the adjustment screws had become loose. We came to visit straight after you and had it fixed immediately. It was a great suggestion too for some hooks – we kept some of the lovely old original hooks from the house before it was renovated. These are now fitted just inside the back door. We have also made sure there is clear information on the location of the rubbish bins and which ones to use. Thank you for pointing these things out and pleased you enjoyed your stay. David and Joanna Property Owner

  • "Furnished and decorated tastefully and to a high standard, Gulls Roost was a great place to stay."

    Very well located for access to all parts of the Port Isaac and yet with a feeling of seclusion. The lack of a car park was not really a problem, given that it it is quite close to the car park We will stay again.

    Thank You Nicholas. We very much appreciate your feedback. We spent a long time choosing the colours and deciding how to furnish the property. The lack of parking concerned us for a long time. However, as you say the local car park is great being so close. We are very pleased that you want to stay again and hope you have another memorable holiday. David and Joanna Property Owner

The property

Settled in a peaceful position a short distance from the old harbour of the quaint fishing village of Port Isaac, on the north coast of Cornwall, rests this remarkable stone-built holiday home, Gulls Roost.

Beautifully-appointed with an effortless blend of contemporary fittings and furnishings paired with original character, Gulls Roost is an idyllic base for a Cornish adventure.

A beautifully-maintained front garden greets you upon arrival at the foot of this lovely dwelling, providing a charming spot to soak in the fresh sea breeze with a crisp glass of wine in the evening or indulge in a hearty breakfast ahead of an adventure filled day in the morning.

Making your way inside, be charmed by the bright and airy open-plan living space, thoughtfully laid-out with a pair of sumptuous sofas gathered in front of a warming woodburning stove; kick off your shoes and settle down in front of the Smart TV as the designated chef prepares some tasty treats in the nearby kitchen, well-equipped with all the necessities.

Uncork a bottle of wine and gather together with your loved ones at the dining table to indulge in a delicious meal, or make meal times an alfresco affair by firing up the barbeque and enjoying a social seat on the rear patio.

When the evening grows darker, retreat indoors and climb the stairs to the first floor to discover two fabulous double bedrooms, each adorned with high-quality linens, with the master suite framing idyllic views of the surrounding countryside.

Servicing the bedrooms is a contemporary shower room, fit with a handy heated towel rail, where guests can snuggle up to a warming embrace following an indulgent rinse.

Boasting a central location in the heart of Port Isaac, you're spoilt for choice with a fantastic selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes resting on your doorstep, ideal for those evenings where you fancy a break from the kitchen or the mornings where you need to fuel your excursions with a hearty English breakfast!

After satisfying your appetite, get better acquainted with your surroundings and take a scenic stroll along the harbourside, where you can watch the world go by as the waves gently ripple across the water, or spend the afternoon lounging amongst the glorious sand at Port Gaverne Beach.

Lace up your walking boots and embark on a two-footed adventure along the South West Coast Path, traversing the dramatic coastline of Cornwall toward Pentire Point, offering some of the most spectacular views in the county.

Jump in the car and journey to the village of Polzeath, where you can try your hand at surfing or dip your toes in the waters of the bay at Polzeath Beach, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, grab a bite to eat with a view at Tj's Surf Cafe.

Explore more delights of Cornwall with a visit to Rock, or board the ferry and travel to Padstow, both well worth a visit and full to the brim of sights and attractions.

Whisk your loved ones away on a memorable retreat to Cornwall with a stay at Gulls Roost.

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.
