The artist's artwork is stunning - although petite, the studio has artwork available in multiple formats and price ranges. The gallery has the most amazing view out across the sea. Huge public carpark just in front. Well worth a visit if you're near Port Isaac.

The cliffside Galary is a small galary at the top of Port Isaac where local artist Katie Childs & her border collie always give a warm welcome. Katie paints beautiful & colourfull paintings of Port Isaac & surrounding countryside. A lot of Katies beautiful artwork can be spotted around Port Isaac

we found this gallery uninspiring and unwelcoming! after finding parking very difficult, we were very disappointed and found much better galleries in wadebridge such as the camel trail gallery. so we would not recommend a visit to the cliffside gallery.

We visited Port Isaac because I'm a great fan of Doc Martin and this chosen village is just as pretty as a picture postcard. We arrived on a sunny afternoon and the 7th series of Doc Martin was being filmed much to my delight. The Cliffside Gallery is a must to visit with many beautiful prints by Katie Childs of... More

we decided to visit Port Isaac as my husband is a great fan of Doc Martin and although we have been before it was many years ago. it is just as charming and beautiful as we remembered. We parked at Port Gaverne and walked around the headland, the beautiful scenery unfolds before you as you walk. The port is unspoilt... More

This is a lovely little gallery at the top of road between Port Isaac and Port Gaverne opposite the main car park. It belongs to Katie Childs who does delightful paintings of various Cornish scenes - particularly Port Isaac and the surrounding area. She was there when we visited and was very happy to talk about her work. As well... More

A beautiful Cornish fishing village. Totally unspoilt. Hard graft going down to the village and then back up, but so worth it. Views absolutely breathtaking. Good choice of restaurants. We ambled around Port Isaac for most of the day. School house well worth a visit.

The gallery was closed as were a lot of places on a cool November day, but there was still plenty to see in Port Isaac (or Port Quinn according to Doc Marten). The School House is fascinating and the staff were very accommodating, allowing us to look in one of the rooms to see the fabulous view. The pottery was... More

A true cornish fishing village and very beautiful. A stunning must visit, largely unspoilt by tacky touristy shops and lack of silly pricing. The views are breath taking. If you visit Cornwall this is one village you must see! A small concern was the number of people rushing around the streets in big silver cars pretending to be famous. A... More

Spent a holiday in Port Isaac. Lovely place. Stayed in a cottage at the top of the hill and walked down to harbour each day, even though it was a hard climb back up it was worth it. I can see why there are so many visitors at Port Isaac, it is so beautiful. Spent our last evening at the... More
