The property

St Samson is a seaside haven for a couple or small family, looking for a quaint, characterful, and coastal-themed retreat in Port Isaac on the North Cornwall coastline.

Positioned just a few steps from Port Isaac’s harbour, this 400-year-old former fisherman’s cottage over three floors contains period features and provides traditionally furnished and styled accommodation for four.

After admiring the property’s unique and charming exterior, enter the ground floor to find an open-plan room with a kitchen, dining and sitting area with wonderful, exposed beams – the perfect place for socialising together after a day at the beach.

On the first floor is a separate sitting room for relaxing evenings in front of the Smart TV, as well as a double bedroom and family bathroom.

Built into the eaves on the second floor is a twin bedroom– with no door and limited head room, this is a snug, fun space for children to sleep!

Head down the road to ‘The Platt’ where in the summer months you can enjoy listening to the famed Fisherman’s Friends sing live on the quayside, or why not walk along the cliffs to nearby Port Gaverne, with its crystal-clear waters perfect for kayaking.

Within a short walk of St Samson are many fabulous restaurants, including two ran by celebrity chef Nathan Outlaw, meaning you will never be short of places to dine, particularly if you love seafood!

Further afield, Newquay with its surfing opportunities and zoo is just a scenic drive away, whilst the Camel Trail, which runs alongside the Camel Estuary and is popular with cyclists, starts at Wadebridge 8 miles away; why not hire bikes and follow the trail all the way to Padstow?

If you are looking for a peaceful getaway in cottage near the sea, then look no further the St Samson – a fabulous bolt hole for a couple or family with children.

Note: This property has a 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.
