  • "A lovely, homely house."

    Very comfortable and with all the bits and pieces you need while staying, from kitchen equipment to bedding. The welcome pack of tea, coffee and biscuits was a nice touch. We would definately recommend this property

  • "A very poorly kept house with notices everywhere need plenty of time to read them all, unnecessary."

    Not cleaned properly, doors that would not close shut, windows that you could not open, (no keys), shower that did not work properly, bedding that was not clean etc. Check out the extractor fan in shower room ! Owners telephoned to ask if all was ok but did not take kindly to our feedback and comments. Would not recommend this house plenty of others in Port Issac with parking.

    I am sorry you were not happy with your visit to our cottage. We always telephone guests on the Sunday of their arrival and respond to any points raised courteously. I explained that we had no problems with the shower previously but we will ask our plumber to check it. We will contact our weekly cleaners and raise your comments about cleaning problems with them. Normally guests are very happy with the cottage. The windows are double glazed sashes and they slide up and down easily. Keys are only necessary for tilting to clean them.. The extractor fan was cleaned recently works. Property Owner

  • "Generally very happy with our stay."

    Great location. The size of the driveway wasn't clear in the description. We have a very long car and it was very tight for the neighbour to get on and off the drive when we were parked even when we were right over to the right. I think the property could benefit from a shower over the bath on the first floor. Also, providing hand soap would be a plus. We went and bought some and put it in the 2 bathrooms. Overall though I would use the property again. thank you.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are happy to hear that you found Edgehill to be a great location. We are sorry to hear you had an issue with parking, as we have found that 2 cars can fit on the drive satisfactorily. We wonder if your long vehicle was driven as far up as possible. There is a very efficient shower in the downstairs bathroom, so no plans to make any changes at the moment. Thank you again for your comments, and we do look forward to welcoming you back again.

    Otherwise you can find yourself queuing to park on the edge of the village.

    Great location and more view that thought we'd have -have from lounge and garden. Nice surprise! Rubbish collection from last guests hadn't happened so rang the owners who tried to resolve it but still no collection had been made when we left so only had to add to everything outside.

  • "The holiday cottage is within walking distance to a range of the most amazing restaurants of Port Gaverne and Port Isaac."

    It is a house rather than a cottage, so has lovely big windows with plenty of light. And the parking space and driving route into it are ideal. It has a great garden to sit out in the sun. The cottage itself has become dated, with wood chip wall paper almost everywhere and carpeted bathrooms and smaller/old and creaky double bed than has become the norm these days. This is balanced by a good shower room, good internet, and dishwasher/oven etc. You won't find a hair dryer. Not a wholly positive review and below our expectation on the facilities, but if you book with that knowledge and restaurants are your thing, you'll have a fantastic time.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Edgehill and that you loved Cornwall. As a Victorian property the owners strive to make the cottage comfortable, bright and very well equipped. Following your comment, they decided to add a hairdryer. The bathroom is carpeted but the modern shower room has tiles on the floor. The double bed in the main bedroom at the moment is standard size but the owners are in the process of replacing it with a king-sized bed later this year. All the appliances are represented in the features of the property and we are happy the internet had a good speed. We hope you will visit again for more fantastic holidays. Property Owner

  • "This house has everything you need, location is perfect and parking is a bonus, spacious bedrooms, kitchen very small."

    The house does need a little updating, could do with a shower upstairs and carpet taking out of the bathroom. Master bedroom really needs a bigger bed! But over all very pleasant and I'd definitely recommend this house to anybody.

  • "The cottage is very well equipped in the kitchen - which I appreciated."

    Unfortunately the twin bedded room had rather uncomfortable beds, especially the one next to the wall! Probably okay for children, but not adults. The upstairs bathroom has an awkward lock. I managed to gouge a chunk out of my finger trying to unlock it. The problem was made worse when the door expanded in the humid weather. All in all the property is wonderfully situated, and very homely to stay in.

  • "We were fortunate to have booked a week at the house in the same week the government allowed holiday travel , 4th July 2020."

    The cottage had lots of ppe equipment and was very clean . The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious, and we all felt we were not on top of each other. The utility room at the rear of the property was most useful , particularly the tumble dryer. The back garden was a good size but overlooked. Great views of the sea from the front of the house ,especially the top floor front bedroom . Port Isaac itself was a delight with it’s quirky winding roads and brilliant original shops . I could easily walk to the local small co op within 5 minutes or less . If you have mobility problems this may not be the ideal holiday location. The only downside of the cottage is the extremely steep driveway. Upon returning to the house each day it was necessary for myself and three adult sons to get out of the car before the bend in the road . This enabled my husband to access the driveway safely and securely . A minor issue and certainly did not spoil what was an outstanding week away .

  • "Location is important, and this cottage is beautifully placed in the heart of Port Isaac."

    Several of the rooms have superb views of the village and cove and even some glimpses of sea. There is efficient central heating (very necessary in October, when we were there) and all the equipment you could ever need, including an excellent collection of games and books for days when you look out of the window and decide not to bother even trying to go out. The owners have put helpful labels with instructions and advice on almost everything from the front door to the cooker. The house is on three floors and the top set of stairs (to two bedrooms) are rather steep, but this is nothing compared to the challenge of parking. On the website, there looks to be a wide, tarmacked drive, and indeed this is true. What is difficult to convey from a photograph is the extreme gradient of just about everything in the village - it is built on a cliff, literally. Fore Street itself is a narrow lane between stone walls (one way, uphill), with a gradient of about 1 in 5. The entrance to the driveway is about a car's width, so a tight turn, and the drive has a gradient of 1 in 3 (I measured it... sad, I know!). So bring a small car, with good brakes, and prepare to practice extreme hill starts. Or plan to spend your holiday in the village - not a bad idea at all! All this said, Port Isaac is exactly as lovely as you imagine (though I might think twice about visiting in high season - I'm sure it gets uncomfortably busy), and this comfortable, well-equipped cottage is in a brilliant location, almost on the Coast Path. We had a great time.

    All the basic needs are catered for along with a washing machine, dryer etc. The beds were uncomfortable and I think these are cheap mattresses so we didn't get a particularly good nights sleep but otherwise all good.

    Some parts of the house were a little dated but if you were looking for "charm" then you would be pleased. Driveway is very steep so less confident drivers may need to consider this but overall the description is an accurate representation of the property.

    I sent a message asking if it was possible to have towels. I never received a reply & brought towels with us only to find they were supplied. Quite frustrating when you have travelled from Australia.. certainly didn’t need the extra weight. A hair dryer would have been very welcome. Other than that we had a great week despite the weather.

  • "Very pleased with the cottage, location is excellent, comfortable, clean and well equipped."

    The driveway is very steep, one of our cars could not cope with the gradient so had to swap for the car that we had already paid for the weeks parking in the car park for. So that was a little inconvenient other than that it suited us very well and would definitely book again. Phone call from the owner to check all was well was a nice touch.

    We loved it. If you are looking for high end, then this is not for you, but this is reflected in the price. We stayed 4 nights and unwound and thoroughly enjoyed the cottage. My only criticism would be that the main bedroom is big enough for a king size bed, so why not put one in? We struggled with the tiny double.

The property

This delightful, semi-detached three-storey cottage with sea views from its big enclosed garden sits 250 yards up from the harbour in the exceptionally pretty Cornish fishing village of Port Isaac.

Set over three floors, this neat and tidy cottage provides cosy, all-year-round, family accommodation in this famous fishing village, with the added bonus of off street parking, a rarity in Port Isaac.

On the ground floor, a bright, sunny sitting room with a pretty Victorian open fireplace and a bay window from which you can enjoy those sea views.

An archway leads through to a well-equipped kitchen and dining area with a slate floor.

Up on the first floor, two bedrooms, a twin and a large double with countryside views and a family bathroom; whilst up on the top floor are two more bedrooms, a single with lovely sea views and a double, both with dormer windows.

Port Isaac’s lively shops, pubs and restaurants (including two owned by Nathan Outlaw - one the 2018 Good Food Guide's top restaurant ) are a gentle stroll away.

Port Isaac is also the haunt of the world famous Fisherman's Friends shanty singers, who often perform here on the harbour front.

Just along the coast are fascinating coves to explore at Port Gaverne and Port Quin, with the splendid sand and surf beach at Polzeath just 5 miles by road.

A good, cosy family cottage within a stroll of the lovely harbour, Edgehill is a lovely spot for exploring this magnificent stretch of coastline.

About the location


Polzeath 6 miles; Padstow 9 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. There is ample parking at the top of the village.
