This is truly a holiday stay where you can switch off. Wake up slowly with a coffee, listen to the gulls and hum drum of the harbour beyond, and head out on your next Cornish adventure

This magical holiday stay can be found along the iconic Dolphin Street, in the heart of Port Issac, hidden away, but only a two minute stroll to all the action on The Platt

The Details

This place is the ultimate surprise getaway; book a week's holiday and don't tell the family or your other half. Then sit back smug and watch their faces light up as they explore this treasure trove holiday experience. Step over the threshold of this former fisherman's cottage, and you cannot fail to switch off from reality. There is a reason why we endearingly refer to our procrastinating habits, as going 'down the rabbit hole', and this place encourages us to do so, with no holds barred. 

If you need a place to spend some time with family or friends, this has to be up there. Downstairs you're spoilt for rooms to congregate in; a fantastically fun living room complete with log burner, tv, mermaid and shark rodeo Chesire Cats. Then there's the beautiful peach rose kitchen, with useful kitchen island, Belling range cooker, glittery white quartz counter tops and nespresso coffee machine. Finally there is the piece de resistance; the Admirality Poker Room, aka the dining room. Seating 6 cosily, this is your setting for your late night Gin Rummy extravanganza, or if the kids are in tow, your recreations of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party. 

Creep upstairs along Avenue de Poisson, and you'll find three uniquely styled bedrooms. Puffin Palace is a twin room with a great wardrobe and view overlooking Dolphin Street. Lobster Reef is a sensational double bedroom, with gorgeous bespoke French chateau style bed. A vinatge dressing table for getting ready, and a view back up the valley, over the slate roof tops of Port Issac cottages. Finally Coral Cove is a haven of peace and tranquilty, super comfy double bed a vintage dressing table and another view out onto Dolphin Street.     

The upstairs bathroom, has a shower over bath, with exquisite tiling in pattern and jade green, with a fashionable, reclaimed look heated towel rail. There is a much needed utility and outside space to the rear and front for storing sandy boots, wetsuits and your beach gear.     

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 rugged, headland walks to the local coves, this cottage makes a fantastic North Cornwall base all year round. 


Let their imaginations run wild; with the rather obvious Lewis Carroll inspiration, why not introduce Alice's off the wall adventures to your kids and family? Enquire today!
