Port Isaac

Port Isaac

Port Isaac is one of the most remote villages in the UK with the nearest town, Wadebridge, being some 10 miles away. Once a busy coastal port where trading in coal, timber and pottery dominated from the Middle Ages up to the nineteenth century, when fishing became the major activity. The village is lined with traditional Cornish buildings, many of them grade II listed, constructed of granite with slate roofs connected by narrow streets.

Further around the coast to the East is Port Gaverne, a pretty cove with safe beaches and crystal clear water. To the West is Port Quinn. For the walkers amongst you the coastal path extends all around the south west coast, some 630 miles!
