    We loved the attention to detail -- including the second toilet! -- and the rooms were very comfortable.

  • "The cottage was amazing and close to the harbour meaning an early morning cuppa and late night drink were an everyday occurance."

    There were even garden chairs to take to sit on and net and bucket for the rock pools. The only down side is the car parking which is a long way from the cottage and in a garage with other vehicles who don't always park well meaning getting in and out can be difficult. We found other ways of unloading other than the harbour and a lovely local gentleman helped us as we're a little disabled. Having said all that we'd stay again but pack differently so less carrying. You need to take washing powder/tabs and there are no condiments if any kind. The welcome pack of cream tea was a lovely gesture. Missing the sound of the gulls and the sea already

  • "We have had a fantastic week in Port Isaac, having stayed in many holiday cottages in Port Isaac including top end Boutique Retreats I’d say Kipper Cottage was up there as one of the best!"

    Excellent location, well equipped, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. As holiday cottage owners ourselves we know the effort that goes into creating a home from home! A little confusion about the parking as there are two Trelawney garages and we thought the parking was at the new one so paid to park for the week in the New Road car park before realising at the end of the week it was actually the old garage on New Road. Overall we loved Kipper Cottage and would come back in a heartbeat!

  • "Just come back from a week staying at this cottage, what beautiful accommodation it has everything you would need for your stay."

    Great location. The carpark was easy to find and didn't find the gates too much of a problem, however I think it would be a bit tight in there if all the spaces were taken, but we found it no problem. You can take your car down to the slip-way and then only a short walk to the cottage to off load, yes it is a bit up hill, but you are in Cornwall!! Overall would highly recommend and we shall be planning a return visit next year.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It's great to hear that you had such a fabulous stay at Kipper Cottage and had the perfect base to explore the local area from! We would love to welcome you back anytime in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "First time in Kipper Cottage and we weren't disappointed."

    Fantastic Cottage in a superb location, bit of a walk to the garage but who cares. The views and scenery are out of this world, we had a week of peace and tranquility. I would recommend Kipper Cottage to anyone who is looking for a fantastic week in beautiful Cornwall

    Thank you Garry for your feedback we are thrilled you liked the cottage and its peaceful location, one street back from the main Fore Street. As a pedestrian street its especially peaceful and outside space for a lovely morning coffee or evening sundowner. The street and village is full of character and those glorious views from the cottage or a street away the harbour and cliffs. Property Owner

  • "Cottage is lovely, but I probably wouldn't have booked it if I'd known the parking space was inside a garage with old, heavy doors that had a tendency to come off the runners and get stuck - on one occasion trapping our car inside when we had planned to go out for the day."

    Thanks for you feedback on our lovely cottage - we are glad you liked it. I have passed your feedback to the garage owner about the doors - they should run smoothly on the runners and once moving usually work fine. Parking at Port Isaac is at a premium and any space is at a premium. There is always the option of public parking at two near by car parks if garage does not suit. Property Owner

  • "Lovely well equipt comfortable cottage situated a short walk from the quay, we have stayed in Port Isaac a few times but Kipper Cottage is by far the best!"

    The only negatives were the access times, arrival was 4.30pm and vacation 9am. Covid rules are now relaxed surely the times should be adjusted accordingly as prices have increased dramatically and technically the days reduced to six and not seven as before.

    Jacqueline, thank you for the feedback that Kipper Cottage is the best by far! That made us very proud and humble. We have put a lot of heart into making the cottage not only practical but also beautiful as we would want it to be in a cottage we could call home. You are right John Bray, the managing agents, changed the arrival time and leaving time due to COVID cleaning requirements/airing the property. Whilst government rules relaxed the cleaning from managing agents remains consistently focused on ensuring the cottage is COVID cleaned and aired. I will pass your feedback onto them and review the plan for change. Property Owner

  • "The cottage and location are perfect, we really enjoyed it and will book again bt please address the parking: - Parking is really hit and miss."

    We could only park in the allocated spot 3 days out of the 7 as others kept taking the space or they parked so far over the bays either side it was impossible to get in. The bay needs clearer signing, new lines and to be honest bay 6 would be better. We were lucky as not that busy but in the summer it's a necessity to have parking. We woudl like to be informed if this has been addressed before we book again.

    Nick, I am glad you liked the cottage and location. Thanks for that feedback on the parking we have had an occasional errant parked car ourselves so we know the issue and how annoying it can be. The parking is an honesty system and owners/guests should clearly park in their space and bays. It provides a space if all owners/guests keep to the rules. I have passed your feedback back to the owner of the garage and I will see what can be done. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was great!"

    Very thoughtfully decorated and equipped I loved all the Roman blind fabrics Written info very good TV went wrong on us ! We followed instructions and all well until Thursday when it kept saying No signal We are 72 & 82 years old and not very technology savvy Only problem were the heavy and rather worn doors on Trelawney Garage which did not operate very smoothly or easily We would recommend Kipper Cottage to others Janet Grey

    Janet - thank you for your feedback we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. Not sure if you managed to catch the filming of Doc Martin at all. I am not sure we are more tech savvy but in terms of the TV and internet connection we have found switching both the TV and internet off and on again to work. I am glad you would recommend the cottage liked the décor and hope you will visit again. Property Owner

  • "A delightful property in a fantastic location."

    However after a 6 hr journey it would've been more welcoming to arrive to some kind of welcome pack; tea, coffee, milk etc. Especially when you don't know the local area . It would also be nice if a few condiments were provided- salt, pepper, cooking oil etc.

    Dear Kate, we glad you liked the Cottage and the location we especially like the peace of a pedestrian street but only 75 yards to the harbour and Golden Lion pub. We had ordered a welcome pack but the provider closes for the off season as can be the case in Port Isaac during January to March. Our managing agent and cleaning are still following COVID protocols and so condiments etc are not provided at the moment. Property Owner

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.
