These two holiday properties provide stylish and comfortable accommodation, and are situated in a quiet and very narrow street in one of Cornwall’s premier locations. Chicago House (ref UK10213) is a detached property spread over three floors and has its own pretty little courtyard garden, which is a real gem. Chicago Flat (ref UK10214) is spread over the two lower floors of the main house but is a separate property, and has its own little courtyard. The house has a rich history and has been home to notable writers and artists, and you can imagine the creativity flowing as they settled for dinner overlooking the maze of village alleyways that all lead down to the quaint working harbour below. Port Isaac is a working fishing village where the boats leave the harbour daily and where you can buy fresh lobster, sea bass and many other fish for a special supper back at the house. The village sits in a sheltered cove and clings to the cliffs on either side of the beach. As unspoilt as you can get with no major building, Port Isaac retains its unique charm. Commonly known as Port Wenn to the many fans of the ’Doc Martin’ TV series, Chicago House has been used as a set for the show, providing the schoolmistress with somewhere to live. The ever popular TV series is still filmed in the village and you can regularly come across the actors rehearsing in one of the narrow alleys or on the harbour. A group of local fishermen formed a sea shanty singing group, and pretty much every Friday evening everyone heads for the harbour for the free concert that the group perform.Port Isaac is located on Cornwall’s dramatic north coast and is a great base from which to tour this enchanted coastline. From Padstow to Bude, the coast is littered with pretty coves, stunning beaches and quaint villages, including Polzeath, and there is a great surf culture in this area. Also worth visiting are Boscastle and Tintagel, with its castle and Arthurian Legend, or the town of Bude with its wide sandy beaches. Inland you can visit Wadebridge and hire bikes at one of the many centres, and cycle along the Camel Trail, a flat, multi-use trail that hugs the shoreline of this tidal estuary as it heads inland towards Bodmin and towards the sea and Padstow. At Padstow, enjoy fish and chips on the quayside from Rick Stein’s Chippy (watch the gulls they love chips), or idle away an hour watching the boats in the harbour as you enjoy a Cornish ice cream. The South West Coast Path is a must if you are into your walking, at times it can be tough but more than worth it for the outstanding views and peace and solitude it brings. This area of Cornwall, along with its abundance of water sports, is well provided with outstanding golf courses, from Trevone to St Enedoc and the Point at Polzeath. There are also some great spas and restaurants, including Restaurant Nathan Outlaw and his Fish Kitchen, located in a 15th-century cottage right on the harbour. Surfing, sailing, kayaking, horse riding and golf are all available locally. Beach 100 yards. Shop and restaurant 200 yards, pub 100 yards.Chicago House (ref UK10213) and Chicago Flat (ref UK10214) can be booked together to accommodate up to 12 guests.

We have visited Port Isaac on a number of occasions and have always rented cottages in the village and all have been very good. Unfortunately our experience with Chicago Flat would place this property at the bottom of our list and would be very unlikely to return. On entering there was a strong smell of damp, and even opening all the upper windows that smell could not be cleared. There was no Microwave, as described in the advertisement and a family would have difficulties with cooking any food on the ‘portable’ cooker. There was no welcome pack also mentioned on the web site damp patches were evident and paint was peeling off the wall in the shower room. We didn’t use the downstairs area as it was evident that it was in need of a good clean and also smelt damp. The flagstones, which were a great feature, were splatted with old paint splodges throughout the property, giving the impression of not caring about the appearance. Half of the drawer spaces were taken up with someone’s personal cloths as well as some cloths were in the wardrobe. The outside space seemed as though it was not finished and the ancient wooden and metal chairs had definitely seen better days.
Overall it seemed that the owners put together the content hurriedly as most items still had either price labels on and or plastic tags where labels were attached. In our opinion it felt like no one had been there since the Christmas holidays as there was still decoration in the downstairs area as well as a cut up Christmas tree in the kindling box.
