Rumps Point ? We were tempted.
I'm sure Rumps Point would have had spectacular rugged views. The beauty of the Atlantic side of Cornwall.
The path we took headed down into the small Cornish village of Port Issac. A day out away from our normal haunts in Devon.
Port Issac is also well known for it's location filming Doc Martin. In Doc Martin the village is known as Port Wenn.
The village nestles between steep hills. I'm sure the film crew were ecstatic carrying their camera equipment up and down.
If you ever visit, the best route down to the quay is by the coastal path and not the main streets. Unless you have the stamina of a mountain goat.
The coastal path from this point might look like a mini wall of China, but it's the best route to the bottom of the village.
What ever route down, it's not a climb for the faint hearted. You can drive down, but the roads are narrow typical of small Cornish coastal villages. I'm still wondering if the car that squeezed it's self past us as we walked along is still trying to find a way out.
The beach car park is also closed to visitors at this time of year.
Local traffic and digging Freya Rose Blossom's only.
Ist of March and not a tourist in sight.
Only one very nosey Cavalier.
Most of the houses and cottages were being painted, all for the coming season.
This one had a new coat of paint, all ready to go.The oldest house in Port Issac.
At this point, I know I should have more information all about the house, I haven't a clue, I read the plaque on the side of the wall.
We watched every episode of Doc Martin, but as for Port Issac it's self, we weren't impressed, maybe at the height of the season, with tourist milling around, it might have had more of an atmosphere. We moved on further down the coast. Freya leading the way.
You can see where over at CATFLAP CAVALIER. Watch out for flying sand !
