  • "A stunning property with amazing views."

    Only criticism is that the cleanliness wasn't great and we arrived to a dishwasher full of dirty crockery, some so stained that we had to wash it several times. Also many tumblers were chipped. Other than that we had a fantastic holiday and would return.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the lovely views at the property, but are sorry to hear that you experienced some housekeeping issues. Your comments will be raised to our housekeeping team - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "The mattress on the double on the top floor is well past its best."

    The matress protectors are tired and need replacing. Especially when you have super king cover on a king size bed

    Thank you for your feedback, this has been shared with the owners to consider replacement bedding. We do hope you otherwise had a great stay and that you choose to book with John Bray Cornish Holidays again. Property Owner

  • "Property was awesome, better than described with views to die for."

    Loads of thoughtful touches with games for the kids to play with etc. The only down side was the cleaning company who let themselves into the property before we were scheduled to check out. They loaded all their cleaning chemicals into the hallway where the kids shoes were situated and stood around until I asked them to leave. Very unprofessional letting themselves into the property before the allotted time and without our permission. Left a small sour taste on and amazing break. We would definitely book with the owners again

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Rock Lobster. We are sorry you experienced a problem with the cleaning team; we shall take this up with them to ensure there is no misunderstanding in future. We do hope that we get the opportunity to welcome you back to Cornwall in the future. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Thank you for such a great stay."

    The house is beautiful and furnished and equipped to a high standard. The views are amazing and the house is convenient for walking into Port Isaac and coastal walks to Polzeath and Tintagel. There are plenty of options for eating in Port Isaac and a small Co-Op nearby. This was one of the best holidays we have had in Cornwall.

    Thank you for your lovely comments, we very much look forward to welcoming you back very soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed at a few John Bray rentals in Castle Rock and this was the worst experience we have had."

    The property had an end of season feeling; a window lock broken, bulb out, carpets filthy and stained with wine. The housekeeping was poor with a blocked shower drain and a significant number of kitchen utensils dirty and requiring washing. The properties are also now showing their age. The master bedroom bed was soft as were the dining area chairs. Most of the symbols on the cooker have worn off so using was trial and error. Worst of all was the positioning of the bed in the master bedroom. It was side on against a wall which is completely unacceptable. On the positive side we enjoy staying in the development. The views and village location are great and the parking a real bonus. This was our first disappointing stay in a John Bray property.

    We have been reviewing all of our feedback for the past few seasons, we just wanted to say a massive thank you for taking the time to feedback on your stay. Your comments were noted by us here at John Bray Cornish Holidays and were raised to rectify. We hope you still managed to enjoy your visit despite these issues and would love to welcome you back to North Cornwall in the future. John Bray on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

The property

Located a stone’s throw from the coast, Rock Lobster is a spacious holiday home in the picturesque village of Port Isaac.

A reverse-level property, the layout of Rock Lobster is designed to make the best use of the spectacular views that can be enjoyed from the top floors.

On the ground-floor you will find a cloakroom with WC, utility room, a bedroom with bunk beds and a single bed – ideal for a family with young children – as well as a king-size bedroom with en-suite shower and sea views.

The living space is all on the first floor and benefits from lots of natural light provided by the large patio doors that open to a Juliet balcony.

The stylish kitchen is well-equipped with all the amenities needed to rustle up a quick snack or gourmet meal, and after dinner you can retire to the corner sofa and enjoy the views of the sea from the balcony.

There are two more bedrooms on the second floor; another king-size room with sea views and en-suite shower, as well a room with bunk beds.

To the rear of the property there is a patio terrace where you can enjoy al-fresco dining or simply sit and soak up the sunshine while enjoying a refreshing drink.

Made famous by the TV series Doc Martin, fans of the show can enjoy a guided tour of the village to see all the filming locations used.

Within a short drive are the beaches of Polzeath and Rock, where you can explore rock pools, build sandcastles, and try out surfing or windsurfing.

Enjoy a holiday to remember at Rock Lobster.

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.
