Polzeath & Port Isaac 9 April 2014 014

Cornish: Porthysek


Porth Isaac and it's quaint fishing harbour, recently brought to light again by Doc Martin, oozes Cornish charm. It's narrow streets and cottages are now interspersed with fine restaurants too, with names such as Nathan Outlaw gracing the town. But it hasn't lost any of it's charm.


Although maybe not the preferred holiday location for those with young children, it certainly is popular with Doc fans, as well as walkers looking to experience this fine part of the South West Coast Path. This is also home to the popular sea shanty singers Fisherman's Friends.
