On our way from Falmouth to Port Isaac, we bumped into Respryn Bridge which has been in place since somewhere between 1300 and 1500. It is exceptionally narrow (our rental was small and just barely made it through) with a jog at both ends. We arrived at Longcross Hotel which is lovely with glorious views in two directions - the one from the porch to the south gave us a magnificent sunset over water, cliffs, and sea stacks - in time for dinner at the restaurant and it was very good (went again the next night).
The next day we got walking directions from the helpful staff to Port Isaac. The walk down is all downhill which is great but means that going back is all uphill!!
Port Isaac is lovely with its wonderful harbor and charming houses. Visited Doc Martin's house and enjoyed wandering about the town.
We take a drive through the country to Padstow where we don't eat at any of Rick Stein's five restaurants (sometimes called Padstein). Instead we ate out in the country at a vineyard and restaurant - Appleton's Bar and Restaurant where we enjoyed the wonderful wines they produce and a great lunch on the porch in the sun just relaxing and enjoying. Tomorrow we go to our next stop - Penzance.More
