Port Isaac, was
a busy coastal port from the Middle Ages to the mid 19th. century when it was an
active harbour where cargoes like stone, coal, timber and pottery were loaded
and unloaded. Fishing and fish-processing were also important and today there
are still fishermen working from here although tourism plays an increasingly
important role. Most of the old centre of the village consists of 18th. and
19th. century cottages, many officially listed as of architectural or historic
importance, along narrow alleys and 'opes' winding down steep hillsides. Every
day including summer Sundays Western National buses run between Bude and Newquay
- via Boscastle,
Isaac, Trelights, Polzeath, Rock,
Wadebridge, and Padstow - and
connections further afield. For coast path walks, there are several convenient
points at which to alight. You can walk the coast path in short sections by
driving to a car park, taking the bus and returning to your car on foot. One of
the best surfing beaches in North
Cornwall is Polzeath 4 miles away. Dogs are not permitted on this beach from
April to September, but the adjacent, wide beach of Daymer Bay (5 miles) has
excellent, fine sand and is available to families and pets. There are gardens to
visit at Long Cross Victorian Gardens at Trelights, Pencarrow at Washaway near
miles), and National Trust Lanhydrock (15 miles). In the season you can book
fishing or scenic trips from Port Isaac harbour. Homer Park, advertised in this
Guide, at the top of the hill behind Port Isaac, offers horse-riding. There are
good opportunities for cycling along the Camel Trail - Padstow - Wadebridge -
Bodmin - and cycles can be hired. The nearest
golf course is at
St. Kew, and there is an 18 hole course at Bowood near
are also two well known golf courses - the classic St Enodoc (5 miles) and
Trevose (15 miles). For leisure centres, there are Camelford Sports Centre (8
miles), Wadebridge Sports Centre (10 miles) and the Bodmin Leisure Centre (15
miles). Two steam railways in the area are the Bodmin Steam Railway - standard
gauge - (15 miles) and the Launceston Steam Railway - narrow gauge - (20 miles).
North Cornwall is the coastal edge of Bodmin Moor with high, rocky cliffs and
deep valleys where little streams run down to the sea. Port Isaac and Port
Gaverne are in two of these valleys. History Stone, ores, limestone, salt, and
heavy commodities were shipped and trans-shipped in Port Isaac's little harbour
until the 19th. century. Then new ships, too large to be able to visit Port
Isaac were being used to trade further overseas. The railway and the motor lorry
finally ended the coastal trade and at the start of the 20th. century. Port
Isaac became a holiday village. The name could mean 'The Corn Port' (yzack =
corn). In 1340 it was registered as a fishing village. It was a sheltered
harbour on an otherwise inhospitable coastline. Visitors receive much attention
but Port Isaac has not become a 'tourist trap' and has most of its original
PORT ISAAC in TV and FILM
The Village of Port Isaac, was frequently used as a 'set' for filming the Poldark series, and 'Nightmare Man' where it was beautifully depicted albeit as a village in the Hebrides!
More recently Port Isaac has become associated with the TV series 'Doc Martin' ( in which Port Isaac was transformed into the fictional Port Wenn) and the Film ' Saving Grace'.
Doc Martin is a British television comedy drama starred Martin Clunes of Men Behaving Badly fame, as a doctor whose tactless manner causes no end of comic dramas in the small fictitious Cornish community of Port Wenn. Created by Dominic Minghella, The series was filmed on location in the village of Port Isaac, North Cornwall, with filming of most interior scenes and production carried out in a converted barn at a local farm. martin Clunes plays surgeon Martin Ellingham, whose glittering career comes crashing down around him when he develops a phobia which prevents him conducting operations.
Saving Grace was a comedy/crime film, starring Brenda Blethyn, Craig Ferguson and Martin Clunes filmed in 2000. After Grace Trevethyn's husband commits suicide, he leaves her in economic ruins, Grace left by herself is now facing loosing her house because all the money her husband owed. Together with her gardener she uses her plant-cultivation ability to grow marijuana.
Amy Foster or Swept from the Sea has it was called when released in America, is a 1997 movie based on a 1903 story, Amy Foster by Joseph Conrad. It stars Rachel Weisz, Vincent Perez, Ian McKellen, Kathy Bates and Zoe Wanamaker and was directed by Beeban Kidron. The story concerns a Russian, unable to speak English but able to play chess, shipwrecked on the coast of Cornwall on his way to America.
Neighbouring Port Gaverne developed in the nineteenth century as a slate, coal, limestone handling port where shipbuilding also took place - the large buildings have all been converted into holiday accommodation. At low tide there is small, sheltered, sandy beach with an abundance of rock pools which is probably the safest beach in North Cornwall with the exception of Daymer Bay, for small children. Unspoiled Port Gaverne Slate from Delabole quarry was loaded here into the heavy sailing sea ketches which were broad enough to rest upright on the beach between tides. This is now a peaceful spot with little commercialisation.
Port Quin The neighbouring village was abandoned on two occasions, once when all the men were drowned at sea and again when the pilchards failed. It is now a quiet, peaceful place with no shops - not even a tea room!
