As a big fan of Doc Martin (the TV series), my wife surprised me for my 50th birthday with a trip to Port Isaac in Cornwall where it is filmed. We stayed in the Old School Hotel which 'acts' as the school in the show.
What a GREAT place to stay! The hotel is small (about 8 rooms) but very friendly and professional. The two girls on duty over the weekend while we were there, were perfect hosts.
The room (The Latin room) over looked the bay and had the most wonderful king size bed.
Food was pricey but very, very good.
I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of spending a few nights in what is a very charming, and lovely place.
Port Isaac is also well situated to be able to drive to other major attractions in Cornwall. The Eden project is just a 40 minute drive, and Bodmin just 30 minutes.
We hope to return one day!
