Recently renovated, Morley’s Cottage is a perfect example of a quintessential fisherman’s cottage situated just yards from the harbour. The cottage has been a successful holiday let over the years with letting history available upon request. The property is charming and characterful from every aspect to include stripped wooden floors, exposed stone walls, and an open fireplace housing a wood burner, beamed ceiling and sash windows. The current owners rent a parking space at the top of the village which is transferable with the sale of the cottage, if required.
The pretty coastal village of Port Isaac is spectacularly sited on the rugged stretch of North Cornwall coastline that runs between the Camel Estuary at Rock right the way up to the Devon/Cornwall border at Bude.
In years gone by, Port Isaac was a busy fishing port and from the Middle Ages to the mid-19th century it was an active harbour where cargoes like stone, coal, timber and pottery were loaded and unloaded. Fishing and fish-processing were also very important and today there are still fishermen working from the harbour. The village is now nationally and internationally renowned for its association with the television series 'Doc Martin' which helps tourism that plays an increasingly important role in the village and the economy of North Cornwall in general.
The village has a friendly local community which cares with great pride for its environment. It boasts all the usual facilities and amenities for day to day living i.e. shops, doctor’s surgery, primary school, and excellent restaurants including two of Nathan Outlaw's establishments where he holds three Michelin stars.
Most of the old part of the village consists of picturesque 18th and 19th century cottages, many of which have been officially Listed due to their architectural and historic importance, and are located within narrow alleys and streets that wind down the steep hillside toward the harbour at the bottom.
At low tide, there is a sheltered sandy beach with an abundance of rock pools which is probably one of the safest beaches in North Cornwall.
