  • "We loved our holiday in Port Isaac, Cobweb is in a great location and charming but the cottage needs TLC."

    ..!! The whole cottage needs a good clean, dirty cups in the cupboard, water bottles and dust under the bed. The most uncomfortable double bed, I had to sleep in the single bed. Shower needs attention, very weak output. Fridge/Freezer needs defrosting. And finally, the saga with the dripping kitchen tap!! Appreciate the cottage is up for sale but as paying guest standards need to be maintained.

    We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay in Port Isaac and the property's location. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by maintenance issues but we have raised these with the team to attend to. We do hope you choose to book with John Bray Cornish Holidays again as we would love to welcome you back to North Cornwall. On behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful, authentic, homely cottage situated in the centre of the stunning port."

    There was one or two issues such as a weak shower and a couple of light bulbs in need of replacing, but this did not detract from the charm and character of the property. The outside bench was the perfect place to sit and chat and absorb the local vibe. Highly recommended and a place we will most definitely return to.

    We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the cottage so much and got to savour the local atmosphere in Port Isaac. 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

  • "Lovely quaint little cottage, perfect location."

    the main attraction to stay at the cobweb was the bench, so we could sit outside and relax after along walk.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are so glad you enjoyed your holiday, and we look forward to welcoming you back another time. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owners. Property Owner

  • "Firstly I would say that the description of where the bottom car park and the top car park and how many minutes it takes to get there is unrealistic, especially to any one of older years."

    The property was nice although they didn't push the boat out with any extras, toilet roll, logs for the fire, and most of all the shower was horrendous, there was no pressure and was barely a dribble, certainly not expected as the description was a 'sleek' bathroom. Several lights didn't work down stairs in the lounge, and I know television isn't a necessity on holiday, but it was very hard to watch such a small screen! The plug sockets in the bedroom were rather hard to get to if you wanted to use the mirror for drying your hair etc. A few tweeks wouldn't go amiss for such a lovely cottage and location.

    We have been reviewing all of our feedback over this years season, 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

  • "I was appalled that in such an expensive cottage there wasn't even any loo roll."

    You kind of expect those basics to be covered when you arrive somewhere for 2 nights! I was also extremely disappointed at the late check in time and early check out. You book a lovely cottage for the weekend, can't check in until 430pm on a Friday and are expected to be out by 9am on a Sunday - truly ridiculous and not what I expected from going with John Bray.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, we are so sorry that there was no toilet roll in the property when you arrived. This should have been left for you. We have since changed our check in and out times for the coming 2022 season. Check out at 9.30am and check in by 4pm. We hope we can welcome you back to Cobweb in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays. Property Owner

The property

Cobweb is a historical, Cornish fisherman's holiday cottage resting in Port Isaac and is well located in walking distance to the harbour slipway.

With original features and coastal theme, this enchanting cottage is full of interesting nooks and crannies, a true glimpse into the history of these buildings.

Step inside the front door walk into the sitting room which also features a wooden dining table and benches for feasts.

The open fire is a welcoming way to warm your toes on the chillier days; light the fire and snuggle up with your loved one after an adventurous day out.

From here, make your way through into the galley-style kitchen.

Traditional slate flooring and beams have been retained and add plenty more character to the cottage, while upstairs showcases wooden floorboards with light decor and marine touches in decor.

There is a double bedroom with a sash window to let the fresh air in and a further single bedroom with a sleigh style bed for recharging at night.

Refresh yourselves in the bathroom which is light and airy with pale coloured tiling, providing a shower over the bath and window seat.

Just outside is a delightful bench, perfect for enjoying a coffee in the sun before setting off on your day's events.

Whether you choose to potter out the front door and into the meandering lane, soaking up the feel of the fishing village in the slipway, boutique shops and local eateries or venture further afield.

Just around the corner from Port Isaac is the cove of Port Gaverne where you can snorkle or paddle.

Further north on the coastal road takes you up towards a more rugged coastline and sands only visible at Tregardock and Trebarwith Strand.

Take the road south from Port Isaac to the bays of Port Quin and Lundy which are smaller and quieter in the main season.

Further afield lie the popular beaches of Polzeath; perfect for catching the waves on a surfboard.

Be sure to visit St. Endellion farmshop on your way back to Port Isaac to stock up on local produce and perfect sneak in a cheeky cream tea.

With so much to see and do in this picture-perfect area, choose Cobweb as your base any time of year.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


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.
