Things To Do Around Port Isaac

Port Isaac is an excellent base for a holiday in Cornwall.  There are many activities and amenities close by. Fantastic beaches, rolling surf, the coastal path, National Trust Gardens, Championship St Enodoc/Trevose golf courses and many stunning attractions all within easy driving distance.

A few places to eat:

The Golden Lion, Port Isaac
Tel. 01208 880336
The most obvious choice for a quick ale is the Golden Lion.  Sit on the balcony and look out to sea or over at the White House, or soak up the local atmosphere inside the pub and play some darts.  The menu here offers good pub grub - the fish and chips being a popular choice.

The Slipway Hotel Restaurant
Tel. 01208 880264
The Slipway, less than a minutes walk from The White House,  has a friendly pub style bar at the front and a reliably good seafood restaurant at the back. I've always liked the ambience here and feel buoyed by the fact the fish only comes several metres up the slipway to the restaurant. Definitely worth a visit and compares favourably with the famous Rick Stein's of Padstow.

The Port Gaverne Pub
Port Gaverne, Tel. 01208 880244
A short 10 minute walk over the hill to the less populated and picturesque Port Gaverne reveals a little gem for a good lunch or evening meal. This is a very pretty, traditional old cornish pub with ales and very fresh food. A great place to sample crab caught in Port Isaac. There is a choice of bar snacks or more formal dining in the  restaurant.

St Kew Inn
St Kew, Tel. 01208 841259
A 10 minute drive from The White House, this is has been a family favourite place to eat for many years.  The pub hosts a lovely garden, a fantastic log fire in the main bar, top local ales and very good food.


The Beaches
From The Camel Estuary up the coast along one of the longest stretches of National Trust Coastline in Britain.

Rock beach
Located on the Camel Estuary, it is the centre for sailing, deep sea fishing, water skiing, banana boating and catching the ferry to Padstow
Daymer Bay
A very child friendly warm beach with safe swimming for children and some of the best windsurfing in Britain.
A tremendous surfing beach and safe, with plenty of space to picnic and wonderful walks either round to Daymer Bay to the left or out to Pentire Point on the right. Surf board hire and surf lessons available
Lundy Bay(and Epphaven next door)
Beautiful walk down to remote and spectacular beach, best with tide out. The carpark is located on road to New Polzeath.
Port Quin
Beautiful inlet with spectacular walk around to Port Isaac. Home of the adventure sports company Coasteering.
Port Isaac
The quintessential cornish fishing village.

Trebarwith Strand
Another spectacular west facing beach with nice pub overlooking beach.

Cliff walk: Port Isaac to Port Quin and back over the fields:
The walk on this stretch of the Coastal Path is breathtaking in more than one way.  The views are  absolutely fantastic and present the ruggedness that is so often associated with Cornwall.  The walk is challenging and one must not be afraid to climb more than a few steps. The rewards outweigh the effort as you will be left with some stunning memories.  Arriving in Port  Quin, have a rest and a cup of tea from the thermos and then walk up the lane and take left to follow the more relaxing walk home.  Once you have crossed several fields there is an access path across the wooded valley that delivers you eventually back in Port Isaac. 

For a longer walk carry on past Port Quin and follow the path to Pentire Point.  At low tide, stunning sandy beaches appear at Lundy Bay and Ephaven.  After circumnavigating the rumps on the end of Pentire Point you can double back into New Polzeath.  Hopefully you'll have remembered to organise transport back to Port Isaac!

Bodmin Moor walk
Drive past the pretty town of Camelford and take the road to Roughtor and walk up the Tor,there are also many attractive areas such as Crowdy Marsh resevoir.

Wine Tasting: Camel Valley Winery
An excellent tour of this award winning vineyard and winery. The tour is informative and ends in a great tasting with views over the vines.  Camel Valley have won the International Wine Challenge award for best rose sparkling wine beating even the big champagne names!

St Kew Golf Course
St. Kew Highway, Bodmin, PL30 3EF - 01208 841500
This 18 hole golf course is the nearest.  It is not the most challenging but it is well run and the owners are friendly to newcomers.

St Enodoc
Wadebridge PL27 6LD, 01208 863 216
The more classic St Enodoc is accessed from Rock and is both challenging and well situated.  There are two 18 hole courses: the Holywell course is more leisurely and the Church course is more demanding. This is a wonderful golf course with outstanding views of the Camel Estuary..

Bowood Park Hotel and Golf Course

Lanteglos, Camelford, Cornwall PL32 9RT 01840 213017
Incredible scenery makes this a popular choice.

Speak to the fishermen about fishing trips and scenic boat tours - they do offer these services but they'll be subject to weather conditions. Finally, don't forget one of the most enjoyable activities is to sit on the terrace with a drink of your choice and watch the world go by.  If Doc Martin is not being filmed, or the world famous 'Fisherman's Friend's' are not singing on the Platt, then at least the steady flow of the tide is guaranteed to entertain.
