    “When we arrived, the house had to be vacuumed, there were so many cobwebs that they had to be removed, together with the spiders.”

    There was a cracked plate, a cracked glass and a chipped glass. Some of the plates & cutlery had to be washed. All of the downstairs flooring had to be washed/mopped as it was filthy. There was not enough toilet paper to last the week which for a family sized house was surprising. Also, there was no soap/hand dispenser in either of the downstairs bedrooms or toilet.

    There was a cracked plate, a cracked glass and a chipped glass. Some of the plates & cutlery had to be washed. All of the downstairs flooring had to be washed/mopped as it was filthy. There was not enough toilet paper to last the week which for a family sized house was surprising. Also, there was no soap/hand dispenser in either of the downstairs bedrooms or toilet. Then, most disgustingly of all, there were two sets of dog poo in the garden which my young daughters almost trod in! (We do not have any dogs). There was a house being built opposite and we were awoken at 7.45am each morning when the workmen began - I appreciate this is not your fault, but it just added to the overall dissatisfaction of our family holiday. However, trying to put these aside, the house was large enough for us and the location was good. Port Isaac is a lovely place to stay, albeit in a cleaner house next time! If we knew that we had to clean the house before unpacking, then we would have booked with another agent. I just can't see how the people cleaning the house during the handover period thought the house was clean enough for its' new visitors. I did speak to a lady in the John Bray office advising her of my dissatisfaction the following morning of our arrival.

The property

Situated in a peaceful area of Port Isaac on the North Cornwall coast, Fairholme is a characterful and spacious holiday home retaining many of its charming original features.

Offering comfortable accommodation for up to six guests and benefiting from two private parking spaces, this family-friendly holiday home is within easy reach of Port Isaac’s harbour, pubs and restaurants. Prepare indulgent family feats in the well-equipped kitchen with a sociable central island, making self-catering a pleasure.

Head into the spacious dining room that’s full of character and charm, where you can exchange memories of your holiday while cosying up by the impressive fire, perfect for warming up after an exhilarating day exploring Cornwall’s coastline. Pop into the charming conservatory to kick back, relax and enjoy a coffee with your favourite book whilst overlooking the garden.

Rest sleepy heads in the two comfortably furnished ground floor bedrooms - the first with twin beds and the second with a double bed, each including their own shower and basin, and sharing a separate WC.

Head up the elegant, open tread wrought iron staircase to the first floor, where you can relax and watch TV or take in sea views from the living area. For a peaceful night, the first floor master bedroom boasts a king-size bed, en-suite bathroom, separate shower and sea views for total relaxation. Spend clear days outside in the enclosed rear mature garden, which offers a space to relax and enjoy an alfresco meal, or to star gaze at night. Situated in a quiet location at the top of the village, the local grocery shop and Port Isaac Harbour are both within a short walking distance, offering a range of popular bars, restaurants and shops. Enjoy all that this stunning region has to offer by exploring the rugged coastline on foot, taking in sights of rare birds and occasionally seals or dolphins, or embark on a ‘walk and talk’ tour of the village to learn more about filming spots from the popular ‘Doc Martin’ TV show or ‘Fisherman’s Friends’ film. Offering spacious and charming accommodation, Fairholme is perfectly positioned for those looking for a peaceful retreat within walking distance of all that pretty Port Isaac has to offer.

About the location

PORT ISAAC

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.
