It is tastefully furnished and comfortable all year round with an inglenook fireplace and central heating. The state of the art kitchen is great for catering and cooking the wonderful local fish and seafood. There are two excellent fish shops in Port Isaac that sell their daily catch. Dog friendly, this is the perfect place from which to explore this unique part of Cornwall.

Standing on the headland above the picturesque village of Port Gaverne, the house is a few steps from the north Cornwall coastal path. The beach at Port Gaverne is a 5-6 minute walk away and a little further is Port Isaac, with its huddle of slate houses and narrow alleyways. Famous now as the setting for the TV series ‘Doc Martin’, Port Isaac is a working fishing village with shops, bars and several top quality restaurants.

The area is very well served by a variety of foodie places. Close by is a pub that was listed as pub of the year and the bistro next door has indoor and outdoor dining. For those who want to spend a bit more, there are two Michelin starred restaurants in Port Isaac run by Nathan Outlaw. Nearby in Padstow is Paul Ainsworth’s Michelin starred restaurant, No. 6, and Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant and Cookery School. Rick Stein also has a number of other restaurants with varying price ranges. The Cracking Crab in Polzeath is right by the beach and inland the St Kew Inn is also a favourite.

This is an ideal spot for those who enjoy coastal walks, bird watching, golf, fishing, surfing, cycling or just lazing on the beach. Polzeath’s famous surf attracts all comers and its glorious sandy beach is just a short drive away. The cliffs, caves and rock pools are a children’s paradise. A water sports centre, Cornish Rock Tors, is based on the beach at Port Gaverne and offers kayaking, paddle boarding and coasteering for individuals and groups. Polzeath’s famous surf attracts all comers, and its glorious sandy beach is just a short drive away. The cliffs, caves and rock pools are a children’s paradise. Water sports can be enjoyed at Rock, from where a passenger ferry crosses the Camel Estuary to the town of Padstow. Daymer Bay has another glorious sandy beach, and the golf course at St Enedoc is open to the public. John Betjeman, the late Poet Laureate, is buried at St Endeoc Church with its twisted spire.

Nearby Wadebridge hosts one end of the Camel Trail, with a 5-mile dedicated cycle ride to Padstow on the old railway track, alongside the picturesque Camel Estuary. To the north stands Tintagel’s medieval castle and the quaint fishing village of Boscastle, with Crackington Haven and Bude a little further on. Inland lies Jamaica Inn and Bodmin Moor, the setting for the ’Poldark’ stories. This is truly a great spot for families to enjoy with plenty of local attractions and fun. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 0.5 miles.

Guest Comments

"Fabulous location for walking and for water sports. We enjoyed visiting local restaurants many in walking distance. Dog friendly beaches nearby. The cottage is literally just yards from the coastal path. The caretaker was outstanding. We have stayed in many cottages but this is the best equipped kitchen I have ever experienced. I real home from home."

"A lovely dog friendly bungalow set away from the hustle and bustle, with fantastic views of the ocean in the distance. All essentials are within close proximity so if your looking to get away from it all and relax with great views and peace and quiet this is the place for you."

David, July 2019

"Fab property, everything as good as pictures. Quiet, Rural location. We came as a family of 7 and had a lovely stay"

Sandra, September 2018

"St. Illex is a fantastic house with everything you need that you would normally expect in your own home. Sitting on the terrace with a glass of G&T looking across to Tintagel and the ocean is amazing. Our 2 dogs had an ample sized garden, completely secure, to run free in and with my 2 daughters and their partners staying with us this is a perfect place to enjoy a family meal together, have a barbeque or to use as a great base to explore the rest of the county. The adjacent farm with the sheep and chickens roaming in the field next door added further rural charm to our stay.It was a slight shame that due to the steep hills and lack of footpaths leading down into Port Gaverne and further on into Port Isaac that we couldn't really walk with the dogs as one is getting on a bit and parking can be restrictive. However this is not really a criticism just something to be mindful of if you have members of your party who may be getting on in years and struggle with hills (either 2 or 4 legged!).The Pilchards and The Port Gaverne hotel are great places to eat and drink as well as the Star Gazey restaurant in Port Isaac.....all fairly close by (5 minutes in the car)Everybody was very sad to leave and we would definitely like to return to St. Illex in the not too distant future.Superb holiday home."

Anthony, September 2018

"Fabulous place to stay very quiet and very rural lovely coast view we had a fantastic stay and cant recomend this beautiful place enough it has everything you need."

Liz, September 2018

"A really lovely house, spacious and comfortable with a well enclosed garden for a dog. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. Plenty of space and light and lovely views. Port Gaverne is lovely and in easy walking distance, as is Port Isaac but it is up and down hill so be aware!"

Julie, August 2018

"This was the best holiday home that we I’ve ever stopped in!! We will be coming back it was fantastic for all the family"
