• About St Illex

    Beautiful views along the Cornish coast greet visitors to this single-storey, light and spacious property. Totally renovated, the property features a split level, open plan living and dining area, each with bi-fold doors opening out onto patio areas, affording stunning sea views, with gardens front and back. It is tastefully furnished and comfortable all year round with an inglenook fireplace and central heating. The state of the art kitchen is great for catering and cooking the wonderful local fish and seafood. There are two excellent fish shops in Port Isaac that sell their daily catch. Dog friendly, this is the perfect place from which to explore this unique part of Cornwall.
    Standing on the headland above the picturesque village of Port Gaverne, the house is a few steps from the north Cornwall coastal path. The beach at Port Gaverne is a 5-6 minute walk away and a little further is Port Isaac, with its huddle of slate houses and narrow alleyways. Famous now as the setting for the TV series ‘Doc Martin’, Port Isaac is a working fishing village with shops, bars and several top quality restaurants.
    The area is very well served by a variety of foodie places. Close by is a pub that was listed as pub of the year and the bistro next door has indoor and outdoor dining. For those who want to spend a bit more, there are two Michelin starred restaurants in Port Isaac run by Nathan Outlaw. Nearby in Padstow is Paul Ainsworth’s Michelin starred restaurant, No. 6, and Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant and Cookery School. Rick Stein also has a number of other restaurants with varying price ranges. The Cracking Crab in Polzeath is right by the beach and inland the St Kew Inn is also a favourite.
    This is an ideal spot for those who enjoy coastal walks, bird watching, golf, fishing, surfing, cycling or just lazing on the beach. Polzeath’s famous surf attracts all comers and its glorious sandy beach is just a short drive away. The cliffs, caves and rock pools are a children’s paradise. A water sports centre, Cornish Rock Tors, is based on the beach at Port Gaverne and offers kayaking, paddle boarding and coasteering for individuals and groups. Polzeath’s famous surf attracts all comers, and its glorious sandy beach is just a short drive away. The cliffs, caves and rock pools are a children’s paradise. Water sports can be enjoyed at Rock, from where a passenger ferry crosses the Camel Estuary to the town of Padstow. Daymer Bay has another glorious sandy beach, and the golf course at St Enedoc is open to the public. John Betjeman, the late Poet Laureate, is buried at St Endeoc Church with its twisted spire.
    Nearby Wadebridge hosts one end of the Camel Trail, with a 5-mile dedicated cycle ride to Padstow on the old railway track, alongside the picturesque Camel Estuary. To the north stands Tintagel’s medieval castle and the quaint fishing village of Boscastle, with Crackington Haven and Bude a little further on. Inland lies Jamaica Inn and Bodmin Moor, the setting for the ’Poldark’ stories. This is truly a great spot for families to enjoy with plenty of local attractions and fun.

    I was so impressed with St. Illex --- the complimentary welcome box + milk in the fridge such a very nice added touch. The house was beautifully clean and the bedding and towels were very good quality. All equipment was first class, kitchen was fabulous. It made me re-evaluate the holiday house we always stay in Port Isaac.

    My family and I had a fantastic time here. House was a wow factor and after long days out very comfortable to return too. We would all highly recommend St Illex as a holiday home. The information book was very helpful. Thank you to Andrea the caretaker for everything, including helping him to locate the all important cork screw!

    Fabulous location for walking and for water sports. We enjoyed visiting local restaurants many in walking distance. Dog friendly beaches nearby. The cottage is literally just yards from the coastal path. The caretaker was outstanding. We have stayed in many cottages but this is the best equipped kitchen I have ever experienced. I real home from home.

    A lovely dog friendly bungalow set away from the hustle and bustle, with fantastic views of the ocean in the distance. All essentials are within close proximity so if your looking to get away from it all and relax with great views and peace and quiet this is the place for you.
