An impressive contemporary version of a seaside Victorian house above Port Gaverne beach and within a short walk of the heart of Port Isaac’s historic village and harbour.


In its elevated position overlooking the cliffs, this lovely Victorian house is the definition of a seaside home. Authentic architectural details combine with contemporary décor and fittings to create style, comfort and space in this modern renovation. Neutral tones complement the original slate flagstones in the kitchen and the tiles used in the bath and shower rooms. The bedrooms are on three upper floors, each with its own bath or shower room. The sitting room and two bedrooms have uninterrupted sea views, spectacular whatever the weather.

A glazed front door enters a porch and the hall, where to the right is the generously sized living room, filled with natural light from the wide bay window. The feature open hearth and decorative glazed window detail lend charm to the contemporary convention of open plan living, with this room leading through double doors into the dining room, which in turn is open to the well-appointed kitchen. Here too, natural light floods from the glazed roof and the double patio doors to the rear courtyard, as well as the kitchen window, also facing the sunny, southern aspect. The dual fuel range (gas hob, electric oven) is set into the original chimney alcove. There is space for two fridges, freezer and dishwasher with fitted cupboards and shelving for maximum convenience. A central island provides a useful surface. Adjacent is the utility/laundry room.

On the first floor the principal bedroom replicates the shape of the sitting room below, with the wide bay window and fireplace. The direct view of the magnificent coastline is the major feature here, but also worth noting is the inbuilt storage space and the nicely appointed en suite bathroom, with freestanding shower. Also, with the glorious coastal view, this is a bathroom to relax in.

The second bedroom, currently a twin room, has a pleasant view over the rear garden and an en suite shower room. Next is a separate wc and wash basin and then the third bedroom with king-size double bed, en suite shower room and a south facing view over the rear garden. Along the landing are inbuilt cupboards and then the stairs to the second floor.

Both double en suite bedrooms on this floor have lovely views, one over the coast, the other over the gardens at the rear. The beamed sloping ceilings add a cosiness, but head height is not restricted.

Finally, the sixth en suite bedroom is reached by a steeper staircase and is most attractive and bright with its double aspect windows and white panelled ceiling (with restricted height on the corner).

There is parking immediately opposite the house and the front garden opens to the access road, making the most of the view with decking and garden seating.

The rear garden is securely fenced and is arranged for maximum enjoyment of its sunny aspect, with patio dining and barbecue area immediately outside the dining room and steps to the upper decked terrace, a lovely area to enjoy the sun.

Above the deck is the annexe, currently fitted with bunk beds and clearly a great spot for kids to enjoy the fun of being in the garden. It has its own shower room and could be fitted out as a creative studio or home office. From this level a gate opens out to the private parking spaces, accessed by a side road from Tintagel Terrace.


There is always a buzz of activity in Port Isaac. This pretty port is spectacularly sited on a rugged stretch of North Cornwall’s coastline. Port Isaac was a busy fishing port and from the Middle Ages to the mid-19th century it was an active harbour, shipping cargoes of stone, coal, timber and pottery. Fishing and fish-processing were also very important and today there are still fishermen working from the harbour.

The village is now internationally renowned for its association with the television series 'Doc Martin'. 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.

The village has several good places to eat, but the most notable is Restaurant Nathan Outlaw which was voted the best restaurant in Britain in August 2017 by the Good Food Guide and holds two Michelin stars.

Anchorage is situated above the old village, along an elegant Victorian terrace, overlooking the magnificent coastline from Port Gaverne to Tintagel.
