We found it difficult to access the Hathaway Guest House. You have to drive up a steep single track road often clogged with pedestrians climbing up to be photographed outside a key location in Martin Clunes’ Doc Martin series. As Marion, Hathaway’s owner said at the top, it’s worth the effort. The Guest House enjoys a spectacular view over Port... More

I chose this B'n'B based on the trip advisor reviews and what a great choice it was too. We stayed in room 2 with the glorious view of the harbour, breakfast was great a full English assembled into a smiley face, with good quality produce and home reared eggs! My breakfast sustained me until 3pm which worked wonders on our... More

Port Isaac is a delightful place to visit and stay. Nigel very welcoming and chatty, Marion a little more routine/regimented. Would have loved to have spent more time, perhaps with a chilled glass of something in the garden overlooking the glorious views but didn't feel comfortable to do so.

Marion, the proprietress, could not have been more hospitable or accomodating. A lovely person. She and her husband are first rate hosts. The room was comfortable, but just manueverable for two people, barely. The bathroom was the size of a postage stamp, so plan on banging your head into the shower stall as you get up from the toilet (!!)... More

This is our third time staying in Port Isaac and this by far is the best view we have enjoyed. We stayed in the self contained flat at the top of the house with our own roof terrace with a great view across the harbour and hillside. Along with this the apartment has a great velux window which opened to... More

We stayed here on 13th and 14th Septemeber and cannot fault anything! It was all so clean and lovely and a beautiful location. Many thanks to Marion for making our stay so pleasant. The scenery is truly amazing and worth the hilly walks.

Although it is not for the feint hearted getting through the village, and then up the other side to the spacious parking area for this wonderful B and B, it is well worth the effort. Marion is a polite and unobtrusive proprietor, who does wonderful cream teas in the afternoon as well as running her home as a B and... More

The view is breathtaking and it does what it says on the tin - cream teas! If you're looking for a cafe then this isn't the place for you but, if you're looking for a fab and well priced cream tea with the most amazing view ever then this is it! The prices are reasonable, with the kids drinks at... More
