Just ½ mile from Port Isaac and on the coastal path, this is a unique holiday home in a fantastic position. Port Gaverne is just down the hill with its secluded bay and charming Port Gaverne Hotel, pub and restaurant. A little further is Port Isaac, made famous by the TV series Doc Martin. Port Isaac has a picturesque working harbour and an array of quaint shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Port Isaac lies on the South West Coastal Path and offers spectacular walks with views of dramatic cliffs and coastline of North Cornwall. Also close by is the sandy surfing beach at Polzeath. Just along the coast is Rock, which has beautiful beaches with a number of watersports available and St Enodoc Golf Club. From Rock a ferry can be taken over to Padstow, with its array of interesting shops, pubs and restaurants including Rick Stein’s famous seafood restaurant. From here a ferry can be taken over to Rock, which has a sandy surfing beach with a number of watersports available. From Padstow, a 5-mile stretch of the Camel Trail runs to Wadebridge offering a level route for walkers and cyclists and which passes by Pinkson Creek, a habitat abundant with bird life. Up the coast is the pretty coastal village of Tintagel, with its ruined castle on the headland and legends of King Arthur. The pretty fishing village of Boscastle is also worth a visit, and a little further on are the fine sandy beaches of Crackington Haven and Bude. Shop 1/2 mile, pub 1/4 mile.

The Lookout served us well for a week. There were 6 adults and 3 children and we found it completely satisfactory. It was particularly well equipped. Lots of glasses, cutlery, crockery, pans, etc which is not always the case in our experience. It was 15 minutes walk into Port Gaverne which was a bit far for the kids. We liked the beach at Penarwith Strand which is a short drive away.

Lovely location, if you are fit and able to walk to the Ports as car parking is difficult. There were some issues regarding the maintainance of the property, namely kitchen work tops, leaking shower in en suite and wifi which for two days was almost non existent- new equipment ordered and received by post corrected what was a major problem. Overall our party had a lovely ,memorable holiday.
