Where to stay around Polzeath and Port Quin

Doyden Castle, Port Quin

There are lots of fabulous accommodation options on the stretch of coast between Polzeath and Port Quin. Booking links are at the bottom of the page.


Old Farmhouse (sleeps five) and Overhaven (sleeps six) can be adjoined making it ideal for larger groups. West Cottage (sleeps four) is a pretty cottage with traditional features and welcomes dogs. All have cots. 

Port Gaverne 

The White Cottage (sleeps six plus cot) is a stone's throw from the harbour and has many traditional features including slate floors and low doorways. A cottage steeped in character and with a secluded walled garden. 

Port Isaac 

The Grade ll-listed Birdcage (sleeps two) rises out of the higgledy-piggedly of old Port Isaac. This former cobblers shop has tiny rooms and a staircase that slims down to just over a foot wide in places. 

Doyden Castle 

Doyden Castle (sleeps two) is about as close to a dream destination as you could imagine. Despite its tower and arched windows, this building is actually neither a true castle nor folly. It was built in about 1830 as a pleasure house by an infamous and wealthy bon-viveur from nearby Wadebridge. Its chequered history only adds to the experience of staying in this little fortress on the edge of the cliffs. 

Doyden House 

Doyden House is divided into four delightful apartments full of individual character. Conor (sleeps two plus cot), Rumps (sleeps two), Carnweather (sleeps four plus cot) and Mouls (sleeps four plus cot). 

Stable Cottage

Stable Cottage (sleeps four) is a characterful property which offers the opportunity to gaze out over Port Quin Bay either from inside the cottage or from the patio.

Port Quin 

Guy's (sleeps six) and Quin Cottage (sleeps three) sit right on the edge of the beach. Lacombe Cottage (sleeps three) is a traditional cottage and Carolina Cellar (sleeps two) is an apartment just metres from the sea.
