About Elaine Lewis

My husband and I live and work in the Cotswolds and have two teenage daughters. We discovered Port Isaac when we were on our honeymoon twenty years ago and fell in love with it then. We have been coming back ever since.

Now that Doc Martin has put Port Isaac on the map we are delighted that more people are coming to enjoy this special location. We get a kick out of seeing our front door on camera.

Port Isaac is also home to the now famous Fishermen's Friends singers and we take pleasure in seeing them perform on the Platt every Friday evening from 8 p.m. during the summer months.

Elaine Lewis purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Elaine Lewis chose North Cornwall

When the opportunity came up to buy the apartment in 2006 we jumped at the chance because it is perfectly positioned in the centre of the village. Over the next eighteen months we undertook extensive renovations to turn it into a comfortable, high spec home from home. We try to get down there as often as possible as we love the surrounding area, walking the coastal path and visiting some of the glorious North Cornwall beaches. We hope you will like it as much as we do.

What makes this apartment unique

What we enjoy most about the apartment is the open feel to the sitting room where you can sit and watch the world go by from the window. When you are cooking you are still all together which makes it a great entertainment space. We also like to be able to wander from the front door and have a choice of places to eat right on our doorstep.

We had a wonderful stay at Elaine's cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely and very welcoming and cosy. We immediately felt at home. It had absolutely all that was needed for our stay and was very well equipped. My only suggestion would be that the downstairs windows to the front of the cottage really do require a privacy type addition affixed from the Base to halfway so tourists constantly walking past cannot see in .This would have allowed us to enjoy the views from the glass fronted door also. Instead we had to keep the blinds down at ALL times to avoid being peered in at . This was a real shame as the cottage is so ideally situated . This however is my ONLY suggestion to an otherwise perfect stay!

Visiting (Portwenn)Port Issac

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the apartment and have always found it to be clean, well equipped, and comfortable. There is a rather steep stairway to get to the top two bedrooms. We were very entertained this trip as they were filming "Doc Martin" and we were able to meet most of the cast and watch the action.

excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Stanley House was at the bottom of Fore street, fantastic location for being in the heart of Port Issac - lovely house with great space. Nice touch to have towels and not have to bring them. Really appreciated the bath mat, the crockery, oven glove and home from home comforts. We loved our stay and would certainly look to stay there again. Only downsides were not a single wardrobe in the house? no welcome note to explain what was what/where things were/local knowledge, this would have made a great addition to welcome guests - for example we didn't find the bin our whole stay, only when the cleaning lady came and showed us !! the welcome notes would have made our great stay a fantastic stay.

Comfortable and fun location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, comfortable and in a fun location, steps away from everything you want to experience in Port Isaac. Furniture and fittings are of a high standard and the Hosts are very communicative and easy to reach. We would definitely return.

Wonderful location but not without the odd little challenge

  • 4 of 5

The property is lovely (an old shop so the layout is a little quirky) and as central to Port Issac as you could wish to get. Opposite the pub, next to the pasty shop and 30 seconds from the beach. The charm is it's location but this does bring challenges, load in / load out is difficult with no where to park and the pasty shop owner next door is less than cooperative and understanding. They joy is all of the above as when you are in its a fantastic base. You'll want strong legs as you leave your car out of the village and walk back in which is steep so more challenging for ones of age old or young. The property generally is great although one bedroom has no curtains and on contacting the owners we were told to hang a towel up! A few fittings are showing age but nothing big. No real information in the property in terms of using appliances / TV etc or any welcome book / guides with things to do so do your homework before you go as you need to be self sufficient. I would happily live with all the quirks again however as the location was amazing. Worth noting eating out in the village is not a cheap experience but the pub opposite the property is fantastic, great beer and ambience.
