Penthouse Apartment in Port Isaac; Holiday with Latitude50
The coastline between Port Isaac and Rock, on the North coast of Cornwall, is absolutely bursting with beauty. It’s an area I have well explored, living just a few miles inland and opting for Daymer Bay as my childhood go-to for beach days. Offering endless walks, stunning landscape, history, wildlife and an abundance of good places to eat and visit, there’s no surprise that it’s one of the hottest spots to base yourself when planning your Cornish escape. Latitude50 are a holiday letting company who have honed in on this area and are here to offer you incredible places to stay. They recently invited me to enjoy their penthouse apartment in Port Isaac, Pymp, and you’re going to fall in love from the following images alone!
Pymp is based on the Eastern edge of Port Isaac, perfectly balanced for a short stroll to Port Isaac and Port Gaverne. This is the penthouse apartment of a beautifully converted property where you have five other apartments and a lone standing flat behind. The building is approached from behind, where they have allocated parking for each apartment which is fantastic. A few steps down the side and you’ll have that incredible endless sea view hit you in the face.
The apartment consists of three bedrooms, two doubles and one twin. Both doubles have en-suite shower rooms with a separate family bathroom with a bath. At the front of the property, you have a brilliantly spacious living space where one side is a cosy living room with large table for playing games and a perfectly positioned reading nook to enjoy that view. Separated by the dining table for family dinners, the other side has a fully equipped large kitchen with island and a second living space with smart TV and a further balcony and view point.
You cannot escape the views and in no way would you want to. The whole property is abundant with windows to offer new angles of the scenery. We visited during a dramatic early Spring weekend but on calmer days recent guests have noted that they could watch dolphins swimming in the bay in front. Port Isaac is a popular spot for wildlife safaris so it’s no surprise that dolphin come into the bay to add that extra magic to your stay.
The bedrooms are incredibly comfy and beautifully bright. The decor throughout is clean and rustic, with touches of nautical charm and each room offering stunning canvas of Port Isaac scenes, just reminding you of the beauty just outside the front door.
From the balcony, you have a perfect view down to Port Gaverne. The cove cuts inland a bit further and it’s a brilliant spot for swimming and paddle boarding on a calm day.
Each apartment has their own private picnic benches throughout the outside space. Pymp has two amazing balconies to enjoy from the comfort of the apartment too.
Obviously Port Isaac is your first destination when staying at Pymp. It’s a short walk from the front door; just cross the road and follow the footpath which hugs the coastline and you’ll find yourself at the Cornish Cove, an adorable cafe spot for breakfast. The village is incredibly charming to stroll through and even more so first or last thing, when the crowds clear out and you can enjoy it in its peaceful state.
Latitude50 have some amazing guides to the area on their website here. Be sure to check them out should you opt to base yourself in this area, some of my other favourites include The Boathouse in Rock, Turnstones in Polzeath and Spindrift in Daymer Bay.
