“Great secret hideaway in the centre of Post Isaac”

Peaceful, clean and charming with everything needed for a relaxing holiday. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking up some local fresh fish (available on the doorstep!) and there are some great restaurants within walking distance. The Old Bakehouse is also in the perfect position to begin gentle walks over fields, exhilarating walks with stunning views, or an easy walk to Port Gaverne which passes a place to stop for a glass of wine with a sea view and ends at a cosy pub. What could be better than that!

“Brilliant accomodation in the centre of Port Isaac”
Reviewed 2 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This is a lovely second floor apartment right in the centre of Port Isaac. It is literally a one minute walk to the harbour, and shops, restaurants, and pub!
The accomodation is very clean and bright and well equipped.
The only access is via an external staircase so it would not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems but that could be said of much of Port Isaac which is built on very steep hills with limited vehicular access.
The property was a real delight to stay in and was a great base from which to try several of the very good local restaurants and also from which to start some spectacular,though rather strenuous, coastal walks.
The booking procedure was all very easy and whilst the promised complimentary bottle of red wine was not there on our arrival the owner very kindly reimbursed us with £25 when this was brought to his attention.
Overall this was a great place to stay. The only downside was that the nearest parking was a strenuous walk away but the lack of traffic in Port Isaac adds to the charm of the place.

“A fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 16 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Having read some excellent reviews of The Old Bakehouse we arrived hoping that it would live up to expectations. We were happy that it definitely did not disappoint! The apartment is a fantastic place to stay, literally in the heart of Port Isaac. The Old Bakehouse is light and airy with everything that you could want in a home from home, from a comfy bed right down to the iPod speakers. The fact that you can be back there in less than 2 minutes after eating some wonderful fresh seafood in The Mote, The Harbour or The Slipway, or chatting to the locals over a pint of cider in The Golden Lion, just makes it even better. The hill is something of a challenge with bags but it was worth it! Port Isaac itself is a beautiful harbour and a great place from which to explore Cornwall. The owner is very helpful in suggesting local attractions and provided lots of information about the apartment and local amenities. The wifi code for a local cafe was also available and worked well. We had a wonderful week (with mostly wonderful weather to match!) and will definitely be back!

“A great base from which to enjoy Port Isaac.”

If you are one person, or a couple, or even a couple with an infant, my wife and I could not suggest a better location for a great visit to a charming and working fishing village on the coast of Cornwall. Located at the central corner of the harbor, but very quiet (on the top floor, with the loudest sound being the muted thud of a sea gull landing on the roof), The Old Bakehouse offers all that a visitor could want in quality, cleanliness, and amenity. Period. And Port Isaac, contrary to what some might think, is not a sleepy fishing harbor--great restaurants, many interesting shops, splendid walks, and a wonderful pub, with little sign that Doc Martin is the popular label for the town, other than the fanciful expectation that one is likely to see him striding around (he does not, except for when the series is filmed, apparently during a short period in alternate years). Enjoy yourselves! (WiFi access, though not offered directly, is readily available from nearby enterprises.) We could happily have spent an additional week, even were the weather less than ideal.

Liked best: The location, central, but quiet and private, with great sunshine (when the sun was shining, of course.)
Liked least: The stairs (three, exterior flights) were a little shabby--no problem, though.
