  • "Lovely property!"

    Amazing views and for a small kitchen there was everything we needed! We didn’t have children with us but the stair gate was a brilliant touch because if you did have children they would be safe with the kitchen and lounge being upstairs. It was tricky to find in the dark but as I had looked it up on the map we could find it. There was also enough parking as we had 3 cars as we all came from different places and they fitted easily! We would definitely go back!

    Thank you very much we are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return Property Owner

    The information booklet was easy to use and informative. We had a great stay at Shilling Stones. The upstairs room was a little cold, I think the radiator may need bleeding.

  • "Great cottage with great sea view."

    There weren’t enough mugs or plates even for two of us and no small glasses. we had to keep washing up or use dishwasher every day. WiFi code in booklet was incorrect correct one on back of router. Booklet said we had to pay for cleaning but John Bray staff said we didn’t.

    Thank you for your feedback! We're glad you had the chance to make the most of the local amenities! We appreciate you bringing the issue of the lack of cups and plates to our attention. This will be passed onto the owners. We will make sure the information booklet is updated with the right information in it. John Bray on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely cottage with glorious views not only from the upstairs living room but also two of the bedrooms."

    Nice garden. Very comfortable beds. Steep drive up to the cottage which didn't bother us and you can't go anywhere is Port Isaac without going up and down hill! Final episode of Doc Martin was being filmed all week which was interesting to watch. My second visit to Port Isaac and I love it here and will be back soon. Can recommend The Mote, The Old School House and The Port Gaverne Hotel for dinner and Fresh From The Sea for excellent crab and lobster salad bowl. Our only niggle was that the windows in the sitting room wouldn't open and given that it was the hottest weather ever the week we were there this was an issue. John Bray sent a handyman but he wasn't able to resolve the problem.

    Many thanks for you feedback on the property Shilling Stones. We are delighted to hear you had a lovely stay at the property and got to see all of what Port Isaac has to offer. We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful area. We look forward to inviting you back to North Cornwall very soon. John Bray on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "We arrived late Saturday."

    Couldn't arrive before 4.30pm as cleaning was being done, the property was well equipped but wasn't the cleanest, the window sils were dusty and the rug in lounge was dirty and had bits all over it along with the sofas, kitchen and bathrooms were clean. The huge windows with amazing views over the port where absolutely covered in seagul mess, which we did manage to get the windows cleaned, it's a shame it didn't mention in the listing about the very very steep path upto to property as for someone disabled with breathing problems made it extreemly difficult to go out for walks, the garden was lovely and a sun trap, we had a relaxing week here and enjoyed the peace and quiet (apart from seaguls and dog constantly barking) downstairs would benefit from a blind or curtain at the front door as when coming out of the bathroom it's a clear view in.. also would be good if a folder with all the places to go and food deliveries was left out along with the visitors book so can be seen as we only found this on the day we were leaving hidden under lots of things in a drawer..

    Thank you very much for your feedback on your stay. Since your stay, the check in time has now been changed to 4pm. We will make sure all issues raised with the cleaning are passed to the Caretaking team to make sure these are followed up with the caretaker. Had we been made aware of these problems at the time of arrival we could have gone in and rectified any issued. In addition, we are in the process of having the welcome folders put back into properties. We hope these issues did not stop you from enjoying your stay and we hope you choose to return in the future. Property Owner

  • "The location is excellent and within easy walking distance of Port Isaac."

    The property is light, airy and spacious with everything you need for the perfect holiday, particulary with the fabulous views over the bay from the elevated lounge. The weather on our visit was lovely (especially for early March) and the garden and raised patio area were a bonus for a little al fresco dining. Although a few of the shops and restaurants were closed for the winter season this did not distract from our overall enjoyment of the holiday. Would definitely recommend and will return on a future date.

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.
