What Our Guests Say

“Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic time we had staying at Honey Cottage the first week in September.  It was so quiet and peaceful, did not need an alarm clock the seagulls did that!  Loved being able to park the car at the top and from the cottage walk to different eating establishments each night.  Last night of the Fishermen’s Friends concerts was fab too.”

“We have stayed at The Moorings many times over the past four years. It is a spacious, welcoming holiday home that really feels like a “home from home”. The house is extremely comfortable and the patio offers lovely views over Port Isaac and the coast – perfect for watching the sunset with a glass of wine! The proximity of the local shop is a real plus, while the off-road parking means that you don’t have a long walk home after a busy day out with the kids. I would highly recommend staying at The Moorings – we don’t go anywhere else!”

“We really enjoyed our stay at Honey Cottage and would happily stay there again. It was comfortable, cozy, has a nice kitchen to cook-in and is incredibly close (two-minutes walk) to the harbor. The lane it is located on is picturesque and quiet; it was lovely to wake in the morning watching the seagulls perched on nearby roofs. The photographs on the walls are a nice touch –they give you a real sense of what the cottage and street were like historically. We thought it was a terrific value, and the parking space provided on the main street (across from a well-stocked grocery) is a real plus. We have recommended it enthusiastically to several of our friends.” See this link for Bill’s webpage on Honey cottage and Port Isaac.

“Just come back from a stay in this lovely property – The Moorings – very clean with everything you could want, and just 5 minutes walk into the village which is amazing! The views from the house are wonderful. The terrace is a real sun trap most of the day. Nice restaurants and cafes in the village and also a restaurant called The Edge – only 2 minutes walk from the House. Will definitely go back again, even though the weather could have been better, there was plenty to do and see in North Cornwall.”


“We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Moorings which we all thought looked smashing. Will be in touch for next year!”

“Located in a narrow traffic free street, Honey cottage is the quintessential Cornish fisherman’s home. With its low beamed ceilings and comfortable accommodation it is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday away from the stresses of everyday life. With the nearby cliff-top walks and spectacular scenery, together with the local harbour and it’s rock pools to explore – just 2 minutes from the front door,- there is something for all the family, young or old, to enjoy. With many other attractions less than an hour or 2 away, Honey Cottage makes a great base to enjoy your Cornish holiday. Be sure to visit nearby Tintagel and enjoy the best Cornish Pasty you have ever tasted. Our fourth visit and still coming back for more!”

“Little Moorings has been a fantastic home away from home.”

Our much anticipated week away in Port Isaac after the confines of lockdown was thoroughly enjoyable and as fist timers in this particular area of Cornwall, we loved exploring the nearby area with this wonderful cottage as our base. It is well equipped and comfortable and is suitable for a small family if required but we had ample space as a couple. There were plenty of good walks along the coastal paths and you certainly get your exercise walking up and down the hills! We can recommend Pilchards at Port Gaverne for delicious food and great service, a 15 min walk away. Locals were very friendly and were happy to see people back to their picturesque harbour. Weather was very changeable but we visited Polzeath, Tintagel, Boscastle, Padstow and Bude all very nearby. A fantastic week in a very cosy cottage which we loved coming back to each day.

Perfect. *****
