  • Pilchards cafe - Port Gaverne

    Port Gaverne is a sheltered little cove close to Port Isaac, and home to the Port Gaverne Hotel & Restaurant. The hotel has recently launched its new venture, Pilchards @ Port Gaverne.

    This cafe is right on the beach, with the waves practically lapping the decking at high water. If you want a table near the sea, they don't come closer than this. Chef Tom Mackins has created a menu that makes the most...

  • Rumps Point

    The stretch of path that runs between Bosacstle and Padstow covers a daunting twenty six miles but can easily be broken up into two sections: Boscastle to Port Isaac (14.5 miles) and Port Isaac to Padstow (12 miles). There is...
  • Port Gaverne Hotel / Port Isaac

    Port Gaverne Hotel restuarant

    Tiny Port Gaverne was once a busy trading port with an inn at its centre. The trade departed, but the inn stayed, and it's now the rather luxe Port Gaverne Restaurant & Hotel.

    The restaurant serves fantastic Cornish produce, including freshly caught fish. The meat, dairy and veg are all Cornish wherever possible, and there are even local libations on the wine list. As well as the fabulous food, the location is lovely, set in this little cove just a few minutes' walk from busy Port...

  • The Angry Anchovy / Port Isaac

    The Angry Anchovy - Pizza - Port Isaac

    Come to this welcoming little place for fantastic Italian-style pizzas, served by the sea. You can also order a take-away from The Angry Anchovy, but that would mean missing out on this friendly restaurant.

    There's dog friendly and there's Angry Anchovy-level dog friendly. Not only are pooches made...

  • The Golden Lion / Port Isaac

    Golden Lion Port Isaac

    This old Fore Street pub has become a famous film set. It stars as the local in ITV's Doc Martin and plays itself in the film about the Fisherman's Friends. It's also a good place to enjoy a pint of St Austell's finest, overlooking Port Isaac harbour. 

    Inside, the 18th-century rooms are traditional and cosy - just the place for a hearty meal on a cooler evening. However, when the sun's out, try to grab a spot on the balcony terrace, which has those coveted sea views.

    The food...

  • The Mote / Port Isaac

    The Mote Bar & Restaurant - Port Isaac

    The Mote is an elegantly rustic restaurant in Port Isaac's central Fore Street. Like most places around here, it specialises in freshly caught fish dishes, with the seafood coming straight off the boats in the morning.

    The meat, charcuterie, cheese, vegetables and bread served at The Mote all come from this part of Cornwall. However, if you're fancying seafood, try their fish pie or Korev-battered fish.

    Its location near the harbour couldn't be better, and the atmosphere is...

  • St Nectan's Glen

  • St Kew Inn / Port Isaac

    St Kew Inn

    It's a 6 mile walk to St Kew from Padstow, or a 12 mile drive (that pesky estuary). Either way, it’s worth it to visit this 15th-century inn in its rural hamlet.

    The St Kew Inn serves lovely local produce, some of it cooked over a wood fire. Try the catch from that day’s fishing boats, or tuck into some succulent Cornish meat. Just make sure that you leave room for pudding, which includes their unique smoked ice cream…

    Inside, the inn is made up of several...

  • Fresh from the Sea / Port Isaac

    Fresh from the Sea - Port Isaac

    Fisherman Calum and his partner Tracey opened Fresh from the Sea in 2010, selling Calum's daily catch. They've since expanded into a cafe, where you can call in for a crab sandwich (cooked and picked on the premises) and a piece of cake.

    All the seafood served and sold in the shop and cafe is sustainably fished, by Calum on the Mary D and from other local fishing boats who follow ethical fishing practices. You can pick up fresh crab and lobster as well as line-caught mackerel and...

  • Tintagel Castle Bridge

    Dramatic windswept cliffs, romantic ruins, and of course, a dash of Arthurian legend – what more could you ask? The dramatically remote location of Tintagel Castle in North Cornwall draws hundreds of thousands of visitors in...

  • Tintagel - King Arthur Sculpture

    There could hardly be a more dramatic setting for a sculpture than the windswept edge of a rugged promontory, jutting into the Atlantic Ocean. Fitting just that bill are the cliffs of Tintagel Island, the perfect site for a...
