Port Gaverne on the North Cornwall coast, is sister port to Port Isaac. A short walk through the latter will lead to Port Gaverne’s small cove overshadowed by the reputation of its neighbour yet equally significant a port in times gone by. Port Gaverne was once an active pilchard fishing village and landing port for coal and slate. Take a holiday cottage in Port Gaverne and explore the area’s marine history at your leisure.
Much unchanged today, this dinky harbour village promises cute whitewashed cottages at the cusp of a lush valley and turquoise sea shore. In the absence of industry it provides the perfect spot for a quiet family holiday in Cornwall with copious rock pooling when the tide is out. There’s a rather fabulous restaurant in Port Gaverne for a special supper but see what you can make from the shrimp and crabs you catch at low tide!
Our Port Gaverne holiday cottages provide the perfect base for exploring Cornwall’s coast path and devouring the freshest of Cornish produce.
