Port Gaverne Hotel // Port Isaac

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 Isaac.

If you want to make a real weekend of it, the Port Gaverne has 15 individually designed, ensuite rooms. Your dog is welcome to stay, too, and you'll get the benefit of the excellent full Cornish breakfast in the morning…
