    “Hi there - we have regularly booked via John Bray over the years and regularly returned year after year to the same properties.”

    Sadly this won’t be the case with Quay Cottage: the first time ever with John Bray we have had any complaints. We appreciate we were lucky to get in anywhere during this unprecedented staycation summer. We are also highly appreciative to have been given a substantial discount once we made our feelings known.

    Sadly this won’t be the case with Quay Cottage: the first time ever with John Bray we have had any complaints. We appreciate we were lucky to get in anywhere during this unprecedented staycation summer. We are also highly appreciative to have been given a substantial discount once we made our feelings known. However it’s important to record that Quay Cottage is sad, noisy, and seagull infested. The downstairs sitting room is damp, dark and grubby. The kitchen is inadequate. The dining room is ghastly. The courtyard is filthy, covered with bird mess and inhabited by a seagull family who violently attacked us to protect their fledglings - meaning the only outside space was unusable, and access to the spare shower room impossible. So we had no outside space and one bathroom for five people with a loo that barely flushed. The twin bedroom hadn’t been cleaned properly. The single bedroom is small but fine (hooray) and the top bedroom is spacious and lovely. Which is just as well as ended up eating our evening meal up there every night as the downstairs rooms were so unpleasant we couldn’t face spending more time there than necessary. Suggestions for improvement: create another en-suite bathroom on the top floor and a balcony/terrace; rip out existing bathroom and replace; damp proof, redecorate and replace all furniture downstairs; transform kitchen and dining room by demolishing broken down outhouse; creating a glassed conservatory over the courtyard and installing an entirely new eat in kitchen with smaller and usable patio..

About the property

In the heart of Port Isaac, in North Cornwall, close to the old harbour, is the quaint Quay Cottage.

Sleeping up to five guests, with three bedrooms, Quay Cottage is a perfect choice for a relaxing holiday on the Cornish coast.

Coming with private parking in a garage at the top of the village, it is a short stroll down to the cottage where you will enter to find a cosy sitting room with exposed beams and woodburning stove.

The kitchen is well-equipped with everything necessary to rustle up some gourmet meals for the family, the dining room will comfortably accommodate five guests around the table, and a handy utility room has space to wash and dry clothes.

Head outside to the beautiful courtyard garden, which has colourful plants, and a table for al-fresco dining, as well as access to a shower room, and an annexe which can be used a sitting room or games room for children.

The property has three bedrooms: a twin room and a single room on the first floor, and a very large double room on the second floor that enjoys magnificent views of the harbour and sea.

Port Isaac is a charming fishing village that centres around the picturesque harbour.

Viewers of the TV series, Doc Martin, will recognise it as the fictional village of Portwenn, and fans can discover all the locations, buildings, and history of the show by taking a Doc Martin tour.

Nearby attractions include the National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow, a marine conservation and visitor-centre; Prideaux Place, a grade I listed country house with fine collection of art of furniture; and fantastic beaches at Newquay and Polzeath for swimming and surfing.

Discover the beauty and adventure of Cornwall during your stay at Quay Cottage.

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.
