  • "Great place, a bit tricky to get there and park as the sign for the spot is quite hidden."

    So pleased you liked your stay, we hope to welcome you back soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owners Property Owner

  • "Although the property is finished to a high standard, it does have some issues."

    No property instructions on how to operate items in the cottage. Although it looked clean on arrival as you begin your stay it becomes apparent it’s just a quick turn around, many cob webs dirty windows and as you approach the cottage there is debris around the front door… If you’re infirm or elderly both the cottage and parking will be an issue. Most places offer a welcome pack which is a nice touch, expect nothing here. We left two days early not for us and certainly wouldn’t recommend.

    Sorry to hear you had some issues with your stay, these will be bought to the attention of the Housekeeping and Maintenance teams. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

    The house had everything we needed and more and loved the peaceful surroundings. A 100 yard walk down the hill to the pub and restaurants was perfect. Can't wait to return

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and that the property suited your needs. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Really lovely cottage, high end finishes, which we really appreciated."

    My one comet would be that it really could use a 'Welcome Pack', internet is a bit hit and miss but we are not a techy family so would rather arrive at destination and read some info. The cottage itself was so lovely, we really did feel spoilt- but info on one time local restaurants closed would have been really useful. Loved the books in the cottage, learned a lot about the area, all in all it were our first holiday since losing our 10 year old Lab, Charlie (who always came on holiday wth us) we loved it and had a lovely stay

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are all sorry for the loss of your much-loved dog Charlie, we hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "The property was lovely."

    Very well equipped . The patio area needs maintenance and when we arrived the patio was filthy - absolutely covered in seagull excrement over the tables too - including a dead rotten pigeon which absolutely stank and hadn’t been cleared up. We spent over an hour scrubbing the patio. It would be great if all areas were checked before guests checked in and we’ll maintained

    Thank you for leaving your feedback following your stay at Crow’s Nest, it is great to hear that you enjoyed the property.

  • "Lovely property, quirky, cosy, well equipped and well located."

    Quality furnishings and facilities. Only a couple of minor gripes 1. Upstairs shower rainfall shower head didn't function. 2. Garden area was unusable due to condition of furniture and "crazy" paving, both in need of updating and cleaning of gull poop. Outdoor BBQ might have been nice also. That said we didn't intend to use the garden as the cottage location was so close to harbour that we had no desire to use garden. Overall, a really nice place and great location.

    We have been reviewing all of our feedback over last 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.

  • "Lovely cottage in a fantastic location just up the road from the harbour."

    The standard of the furnishings, decor and equipment was excellent and very stylish. The garden was perfect for dining, and having dedicated parking just up the road was a real bonus. Our only problem was with using some of the tech in the house, so a few more instructions would be good, however we would definitely book again if going back to Port Isaac.

The property

Located in the fishing village of Port Isaac, Cornwall, Crow’s Nest is a Grade II listed fisherman’s cottage which has been lovingly refurbished to provide a mix of original and contemporary features.

With two bedrooms, a private courtyard garden and magnificent views over the village, Crow’s Nest makes a great base to relax or explore North Cornwall.

Off-site parking is available close to the property, making it a short walk to the door where you will be greeted by a spacious sitting room with a lofty, vaulted ceiling, a woodburning stove and stunning views of the village.

Split over three floors, the entrance and sitting room is at the top of the cottage, along with a shower room with a walk-in shower and WC.

Follow the stairs down to the middle floor, where you will find two spacious and welcoming bedrooms; one double room and one super-king-size, the latter able to be a twin on request with zip/link beds.

The kitchen/diner is on the lower-ground floor and has a high-specification kitchen with all modern amenities, dining space for four people, and a stable door leading out to a private patio area with further seating to enjoy alfresco dining.

Port Isaac is an ideal location to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life; relax on sandy beaches, enjoy brisk coastal walks and stunning scenery, and dine out in fine pubs and restaurants.

There are also plenty of great places to visit nearby; head to Newquay to try out surfing on the world famous Fistral Beach which has some of the best waves in the UK, pull on your walking boots and walk the vast moorland of Bodmin Moor, or visit the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Boscastle.

Crow’s Nest is perfectly positioned to enjoy all of these attractions in Cornwall.

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

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. Only ten minutes drive from the beaches of Polzeath, Daymer and Rock, it is perfect for romantic and family holidays alike.
