Every inch of Chy an Vre has been carefully designed by the owner, to encourage guests to connect with the local area. Marine and maritime objet d'art combine to provide a truly magical and memorable visit

The views from the terraced gardens are ridiculously sensational. The dining area and fire pit allow guests to soak up the panoramic views over Port Issac well past sunset, providing an unforgettable holiday experience

The Details

This unique holiday stay, showcases a menagerie of marine inspired decor. Sealife inspired colour schemes are brought to life against the fresh, coastal pastels, throughout the three storey former fisherman's cottage.

The galley style handmade kitchen is set on a natural slate floor and includes a sublime jellyfish themed feature wall. There is an induction hob and double oven, perfect for concocting memorable meals for the family using the freshest Cornish ingredients from land and sea. A Nespresso coffee machine is available for those caffeine addicts and a fridge-freezer & washing machine are also found under the glittery white quartz counter top. 

Sleeping 4-6 guests across three uniquely styled bedrooms. After a day of rock-pooling and exploring the local coves, fall into a luxurious double-size French boutique style bed. Beautiful coastal colours, set off with coral inspired furnishings, crisp sheets and squashy pillows are sure to send you off into a rejuvenating slumber. All bedrooms are fitted with blackout blinds to ensure the best of sleeps. Timeless, picturesque views of the harbour are captured through the original period wooden framed windows.

The gorgeous family shower room on the first floor houses a generously sized walk in shower. Heated rails ensure towels keep warm and fluffy. And a beautiful pink rose themed room, has a sumptuous single bed configuration; a place of tranquillity and privacy for a princess.

Finally a very clever use of space accommodating four bespoke built single beds, set in the eaves of a calming attic room, with nautical decor. A smart TV and DVD player ensure in-home entertainment for the attic dwellers. Please note these are single beds more suited for kids or teenagers.

The first floor landing also leads out and up onto the terraced rear garden, providing additional outside enterntinaing space, and some of the best views down into the town. 

All this only a stone's throw from all that Port Isaac has to offer; boutique shops and galleries, lively pubs and Michelin Star restaurants (Nathan Outlaw Fish Kitchen).

With an abundance of headland walks to the local coves, this cottage makes a fantastic North Cornwall base all year round.

Important Property Notes

This is a traditional Cornish fisherman's cottage, with narrow access and low ceilings. 

There is little to no phone signal coverage across most of the Port Issac valley. Bliss. But guests should be aware of this. 

The property entrance is situated on the road out of Port Issac. This should be noted for younger guests. 

The terraced garden is stepped and children will need to be accompanied at all times. 

Space is limited inside for belongings and catering. Ideally suited for no more than 4 or 5 guests. 

There is one allocated car parking space in a private car park, a 2min walk up the hill. The space is suitable for an average sized family car. Pickups, 4x4s and vans will struggle. Alternative pay and display parking is available on the other side of the valley.
