In addition to the living space in the main house there is, at the back, a one bedroom annexe with its own private courtyard.

The pretty coastal village of Port Isaac 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.

In years gone by, Port Isaac 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. The village is now nationally and internationally renowned for its association with the television series 'Doc Martin' which helps tourism that plays an increasingly important role in the village and the economy of North Cornwall in general.

Most of the old part of the village consists of picturesque 18th and 19th century cottages, many of which have been officially listed due to their architectural and historic importance, and are located within narrow alleys and streets that wind down the steep hillside toward the harbour at the bottom.

Neighbouring Port Gaverne was originally developed in the nineteenth century as a slate, coal and limestone handling port where shipbuilding would also have taken place. Vestiges of this industry remain, but mainly 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 sheltered sandy beach with an abundance of rock pools and is regarded as one of the safest beaches in North Cornwall.

The property is approached off The Terrace and has a large car port with space for two cars and some convenient built in storage cupboards.
