Initial logs for wood burner included. Travel cot highchair and stairgate. Welcome pack. Public car park £35pw 550 yards away. No smoking. 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. \n\nPort 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.\n\nPort 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. \n\nThe 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.\nChicago House ref UK10213 and Chicago Flat ref UK10214 can be booked together to accommodate up to 12 guests. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/106/840/10628570.jpg UK10213

    Despite contacting the owner they never returned our calls Beds missing bedding and not clean dust everywhere

    The location of the property is great, lovely little fishing village and lots of character. Unfortunately the cottage was covered in scaffolding, which we weren't informed about, and painters working/scrapping walls from early in the morning, although they were pleasant and luckily we were out for the days. They are obviously trying to give the property a facelift but windows painted shut in August was uncomfortable in the heat. We also had several maintenance issues whilst there however they did attend fairly quickly to try to resolve them the best they could. Apart from the maintenance that is taking place, the cottage is very quaint and in a great location (terrace is gorgeous in the afternoon sun!). The overall facilities in the cottage are good, everything you would have at home there. Just let down on the value for money, expensive and disappointing considering the maintenance issues.

    We arrived to find the house had scaffolding around it as it was being painted on the outside, this was particularly annoying in the mornings when we were showering with no blind or curtain of any description up at the bathroom window ! We also had to sleep with windows closed for security reasons. The main lavatory was out of order which meant everyone using the lavatory in the bedroom on the first floor which was particularly annoying for the person trying to sleep and also didn’t afford much privacy for the person using the lavatory. The other lavatory was behind a screen on the top floor with even less privacy. Overall the house was lovely with good quality bedding, furnishings etc however when paying premium prices it’s not unreasonable to expect a functioning lavatory and not to have work being carried out on the property.



    out of 10

    Absolute disgrace overall. The house was covered in scaffolding. All windows were filthy. Yale on front door broken, 1st floor toilet broken, light fitting hanging off the wall, electrics tripping out and sour milk in the fridge, cobwebs inside, patchy different coloured paint on walls, lots of cracks in the walls, dangerous shelving waiting to fall in the kitchen, no hanging storage for guests, very limited or no storage in each room, rusty & rotting decking table, hole in decking, filthy benches on decking, broken window blinds, slippery painted unattractive floorboards throughout, non-fire door with large gaps and a key in the opposite side to separate off the flat. Off the top of my head that's most it.
