Port Isaac - map

Once Port Isaac’s fortunes lay in fishing and the cargoes of timber, pottery and coal shipped from the harbour, but in the last few years, the picturesque village’s popularity as a ‘must do’ destination has been boosted by its starring role as the backdrop to the TV series Doc Martin and as the home to folk singing sensation Fisherman’s Friends. The narrow winding streets, known as the drangs (one of them, known as Squeeze Belly Alley is said to be the narrowest street in the world), are lined with whitewashed cottages that head down to the harbour where you can watch local fishermen landing their daily catch of fish, crab and lobsters. On most Friday evenings you'll find the Fisherman’s Friends striking up a tune near the seafront.
