Shopping etc: Port Isaac has a local supermarket and there is also a large branch of Tesco in Wadebridge(10 mins) There are several eating places in the village ranging from pub to smart restaurant and there is also a takeaway - as the cottage is in the heart of the village, all are within walking distance eg the pub is about 2 mins from the front door of Eastcliffe. There is a local bakery, a greengrocer and a Post Office which also has a range of casual clothes and souvenirs. Several small shops also sell gifts whilst the main street has a local artist's gallery and a converted chapel houses a local potter. There is also a small aquarium and,in the same building, a wet fish shop.
The village: Port Isaac was famous in the last century for its kippers, herring caught by the local fishermen and smoked in the fish cellars next to the beach. Although herring are no longer caught here in great numbers, there are still several families who make their living from the sea whilst many more have boats of some description and several have licences for pleasure trips. Port Isaac is a working port and boats can be seen daily landing their catches of shellfish. There is a good and safe swimming beach at the next village about 5 mins walk away and a vast sandy beach at Polzeath about 5 mins in the car.
