  • "This is a very comfortable and tastefully furnished cottage internally."

    It is well-equipped and maintained and was spotlessly clean. The exterior does not quite match up to the attractive interior - the cottage has a rather odd outlook and the small garden is accessible only from the main bedroom (this was pointed out in the description). It's an advantage to have any parking in Post Isaac and this cottage does have a small space right outside. Overall we enjoyed the stay, but could have done with a better photograph of the front of the cottage to have had a complete picture of the kind of house this was. The check-in/check-out times do mean that you lose almost a day as well. The latter is becoming common to all rentals, though it is not universal by any means.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are so happy to hear that you found Mino Cottage comfortable and enjoyed your stay.

  • "This was a wonderfully comfortable cottage in a great location, quiet but only a stone's throw from the centre of Port Isaac."

    The cottage has been very tastefully decorated and the beds are super comfy. The log burner was a real bonus after a day out braving the elements, and it was so handy having a parking space. The only slight disappointment was the fact that there was no "welcome" pack. It's the first Sykes property that we've stayed in which didn't provide the basics eg milk, bread. Luckily we managed to catch the Coop before it closed. Same in the bathroom where we could have done with a bar of soap. Would absolutely recommend this property however.

    Easy to walk into town and wonderful to come back to. The garden was easy to access and has beautiful views, took a lovely photo of the sun going down. behind the sea.

  • "Cottage very comfortable, easy walk down to quay or to Port Gaverne."

    Only problem was that we couldn’t use the bbq as it was very dirty and full of ash, which I reported. The freezer was iced up badly which I also reported just for your information - we didn’t use it for anything other than ice cubes so it wasn’t a problem for us. Only other problem, that obviously is not the fault of Sykes and which is also driving the locals mad, was the noise & mess caused by a horde of seagulls nesting on the flat roofs around the cottage. My husband’s pride and joy car was divebombed regularly!

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We are pleased to hear you found the cottage to be very comfortable and well located for an easy walk to the local villages. We are sorry for the dirty BBQ and freezer icing up but do appreciate you letting us know so we can get the maintenance team to attend. to it. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner.

    It had all the facilities we wanted but the main attraction was the location. To able to walk into the town easily was a real plus. We enjoyed it very much and we have already talked about coming back to repeat our trip. So thanks very much and we will see you soon.

  • "Mino Cottage is a lovely, clean and very well appointed holiday cottage which provides a perfect base for a holiday on the North Cornish coastline at Port Isaac."

    We immediately felt at home in the cottage which has very recently been renovated and revamped. You are provided with everything to make your holiday comfortable and all fittings and furnishings are really of the very highest order. The cottage has been renovated with the greatest care and attention to detail. A beautiful kitchen and living room is complemented with two comfortable bedrooms. There is a lovely garden with great seating and facilities. The cottage is situated close to the centre, but set back in a lovely quiet setting. This part of the North Cornish coast has some wonderful walks and views with crystal clear water. This was a lovely holiday!

The property

Settled amongst the winding lanes of the quaint fishing village of Port Isaac, on the north coast of Cornwall, rests this delightful two-bedroom holiday home, Mino Cottage.

Renovated to a high standard whilst maintaining the properties magnificent original character, Mino Cottage makes a lovely base from which to explore the delights of Cornwall.

Park up in your off-road parking space before unloading your bags and making your way inside your new home-from-home for the duration of your trip.

Stepping inside, follow the Cornish slate flooring through to the contemporary kitchen, beautifully-appointed with an elegant navy colour scheme and housing a fantastic range of amenities to assist with your self-catering needs, including a Nespresso coffee machine to help caffeinate an action-packed day and a handy washer/dryer to freshen up your holiday attire.

Adjoining the kitchen is a snug dining space, providing an idyllic setting for a hearty breakfast or an indulgent feast, whilst the rear garden benefits from a barbecue and a fitted kitchen area, perfect for soaking up the sun with your favourite tipple on a sunny afternoon.

Settle down for the evening and snuggle up with your better half on the sofa in the sitting room to enjoy a movie marathon, gently warming the space with the glow of the woodburning stove, delightfully nestled within an exposed stone fireplace.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor you'll find two sumptuous bedrooms, a king-size and a twin, each adorned with nautical-themed artwork in a nod to the nearby coastline and idyllically tucked underneath vaulted ceilings decorated with exposed wooden beams, showcasing an effortless blend of contemporary and traditional décor.

Set across the hallway is the family bathroom, stylishly tiled throughout and fit with both a bath and overhead shower, giving guests the choice between an indulgent soak at the end of a tiring day, or a quick morning rinse ahead of an adventure.

Take a scenic stroll from your doorstep to the harbourside, where you can escape reality for a moment and watch the world go by as the boats sail across the horizon, or why not pick up the catch of the day to enjoy with a crisp glass of wine on an evening barbeque?

If you'd rather take a break from doing the cooking, you'll find a host of delicious eateries peppered across the village, with The Golden Lion serving fresh, locally sourced produce whilst boasting unspoilt views of the beach, or for a spot of fine dining, opt for the seafood tasting menu at Outlaw's New Road.

Pack up your bucket and spade and spend the afternoon basking in the sun and sand at Port Gaverne Beach, or travel south along the coast to Polzeath Beach, where you can tackle the waves with a lesson in surfing or kayaking.

Avid outdoor adventurers can follow the South West Coast Path alongside the rugged coastline of Cornwall, discovering hidden coves and historic ruins whilst soaking in the spectacular views across the Atlantic Ocean.

Be sure to pack your clubs, as the world-renowned course of St Enodoc Golf Club rests within easy reach, or if that's not your thing, board the ferry from Rock and explore the delights of Padstow, where you can tour the lavish grounds of Prideaux Place, a 16th century manor house, or adopt a hatchling at the National Lobster Hatchery.

With all of this and more, choose Mino Cottage as your base for your next Cornish adventure.
