Situated in one of the prettiest coastal villages in Cornwall, on a quiet lane behind the owners’ home, Bosun’s is a lovely, detached, single-storey property. Port Isaac is home to the TV programme Doc Martin. In the old village, the narrow lanes are full of quaint Cornish tea rooms, galleries, pubs, cafés and restaurants. Nathan Outlaw, the renowned TV Michelin starred chef, has put Port Isaac on the culinary map, he has a restaurant just a stroll away from Bosuns (booking essential), and a pub in the village overlooking the harbour. Why not book a table for Friday night and watch the local ’Fishermans Friends’ sing sea shantys on the quay side. The streets lead to the ancient harbour and beach, which is still used by the local fishermen. The village sits on the dramatic North Cornish Coast between Polzeath to the west, and Tintagel and Boscastle to the east. Polzeath offers sandy surfing beaches, surf hire and great bars. Tintagel is famous for its myths and legends, and is a great place to explore. Padstow is home to Rick Stein’s gastronomic empire, which is only a short drive from the property. The area also has many other attractions, from the beautiful Camel Estuary, to the multi-use trail that hugs its shoreline right into the heart of Cornwall. Bike hire is available in Wadebridge. The South West Coastal Path passes close to the property, and is a great walk with amazing coastal views. The nearby moors of Bodmin are also accessible from Port Isaac. Beach 800 yards. Shop and restaurant 300 yards, pub 500 yards.

    Excellent cottage, with everything that we needed. Thank you to Helen and Julian for their warm hospitality, which made it even more special.

    We booked Bosun’s for a week away in March, Bosun’s was impeccably clean and there was milk/tea/sugar there so we could have a cuppa on arrival. It is situated a short walk from the harbour in Port Isaac and close to the CO-OP shop. I have no bad words to say about our stay it was peaceful and the weather was great, Bosun’s has access to Netflix and the wi-fi is good so no issues if you have a bad weather day. There is parking available but the space is for a small to medium sized car.

    Lovely small but fully equipped little bolt hole for exploring the area. All necessary items available - the washing machine was much needed with an 18 month old. She thoroughly enjoyed the garden. Very welcoming and the biscuits and tea was a really nice touch after our journey.

    To be totally honest we really couldn’t fault it, every thing that you could want is there, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, and a really great shower. I am sure if you did have any problems Julian & Helen would sort it out. The welcome tray was a really nice touch after a long journey. Bosun’s is as described and well situated for the village of Port Isaac being just a short walk away down the hill to the harbour, then walk off the calories of the cream tea coming back up. We had one of the best relaxing weeks with the most wonderful weather. Would we go back? Short answer, yes, on returning home we have already thought about when we would like to return.

    Nice garage conversion to holiday home. Converted to a high standard with good facilities and very comfortable. Location is good with just a 5 minute walk to the main part of Port Isaac. I would recommend Bosuns.

    The accommodation was excellent, comfortable and tastefully furnished. Good shower and bathroom facilities. However, we found the entrance at the back of the garages did not tick a box for us.
