The pretty coastal village of Port Gaverne is spectacularly sited on the rugged stretch of North Cornwall coastline that runs between the Camel Estuary at Rock right the way up to the Devon/Cornwall border at Bude. Port Gaverne is a small village that was originally developed in the nineteenth century as a slate, coal and limestone handling port where shipbuilding would also have taken place. Today the village consists of a small and picturesque collection of cottages and houses with the majority of the large impressive Victorian industrial buildings having long since been converted into residential accommodation. At low tide there is a small, sheltered, sandy beach with an abundance of rock pools which is probably one of the safest beaches in North Cornwall. Set just a short distance from Port Isaac Port Gaverne is an ideal location for those looking to be near to the 'hustle and bustle' yet far enough away to not be disturbed by it.
Neighbouring Port Isaac is today nationally renowned for its association with the television series 'Doc Martin'. In years gone by it was a busy fishing port and from the Middle Ages to the mid 19th century it was an active harbour where cargoes like stone, coal, timber and pottery were loaded and unloaded. Fishing and fish-processing were also very important and today there are still fishermen working from the harbour although tourism plays an increasingly important role. Most of the old village of Port Isaac consists of picturesque 18th and 19th century cottages, many of which have been officially Listed due to their architectural and historic importance, located within narrow alleys and streets that wind down the steep hillside toward the harbour at the bottom.
Originally three cottages, The Rockies is a delightful whitewashed cottage built of stone under a slate roof that retains many original features and much character.
