Postcards From Port Isaac, Cornwall
Most commonly known because of the TV programme, Doc Martin; Port Isaac is one of the quaintest spots on the North coast, and of Cornwall in general. Based on the North coast between Polzeath and Trebarwith Strand, Port Isaac is a popular spot for visitors and locals alike. With several car parks at the top of the village, there’s pubs, cafe’s and beautiful coastal walks around here so you can truly make a day of it.
Whether you’re a fan of Doc Martin or not, it’s not hard to spot the surgery perched so elegantly on the cliff across the water. You’ll often find flocks of fans taking photos and enjoying the property.
There is a working fishing cove here at Port Isaac, offering a small shingle beach at low tide.
As with most of our quaint villages, Port Isaac is based within a valley so it’s always best to head up each hill and take in the views from the top – it always gets quieter the further out you head and you can take in all the beauty from above.
When visiting, see if you can find Squeezy Belly Alley – as the name would suggest, it’s a tiny little alleyway amongst the cluster of cottages.
