Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A cliff-top cottage with uninterrupted panoramic views from the fishing village of Port Isaac.

Location

The pretty coastal village of Port Isaac is spectacularly sited on the rugged stretch of North Cornwall coastline that runs from the Camel Estuary at Rock to the Devon/Cornwall border at Bude.

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 nationally and 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 most of which are located within narrow alleys and streets that wind down the steep hillside toward the harbour. The village also hosts Restaurant Nathan Outlaw which was voted the best restaurant in Britain in August 2017 by the Good Food Guide and holds two Michelin stars.

Description

3 Overcliff is a three-bedroom cottage in a front-line position on the cliff-tops of Port Isaac. The property has a successful track record as a sought-after holiday let with outstanding sea views and has had just two owners since 1973. The house is semi-detached with parking to the front and a separate garage in an adjacent block of four.

The entrance hallway leads to a fitted kitchen with space for dining as well as to a ground-floor shower room. Beyond this the sitting room has a floor-to-ceiling window and offers family living space with an excellent sea view. To the first floor, a recently-refurbished family bathroom serves three bedrooms, currently configured as two doubles and a twin, two of which face the sea.

GARDEN

The garden on the seaward side of the property ends at the cliff path. A flat lawned area ends in a slope to the path, granting privacy without the obstruction of a fence and giving the impression that the garden stops at the very edge of the cliff despite the wide walled path beyond. A patio is arranged so as not to impinge on the view from the living room.

On the inland side of the house there is a small courtyard between the off-street parking space and the front entrance.

Square Footage: 946 sq ft

Directions

Port Isaac Beach – 450 yards; Polzeath – 5.5; Wadebridge – 8; Rock – 8.5; Padstow – 16; Cornwall Airport, Newquay – 20; (all distances are approximate and in miles). From the B3314 take the exit signposted to Trewetha, Port Isaac and Port Gaverne and stay on this road (the B3267) as it enters Port Isaac and becomes Trewetha Lane and then New Road. Follow the road around a bend to the right and past Trelawney Garage on your left. Ignore the first car-park and enter the second, parking as far from the entrance as possible, then walk along the unmade road past the single-bar gate to reach 3 Overcliff.

Additional Info

Further afield, the stretch of coastline around Port Isaac contains some of Cornwall’s most beloved villages and landmarks. Polzeath and Rock are renowned as the destination of choice for a summer holiday, with a wide sandy beach at Polzeath and beautiful estuary views from Rock. To the north-east, Tintagel Castle is a Cornish landmark first settled in the third century and heavily associated with Arthurian legend, while to the south-west the Camel Trail offers miles of safe cycling along the banks of the River Camel, finishing in the village of Padstow with its many restaurants, pubs and fishing port. Cornwall Airport (Newquay) is around 20 miles away and offers three daily flights to London Gatwick.
