A small Cornish bolthole in the village made famous by hit ITV show Doc Martin is on the market for £295,000. Homestead is one of the smallest homes in Port Isaac and only has 280 square feet of living space, meaning it’s unlikely to be used as a full-time home.

The cottage costs £1,053 per square foot, well above the national average cost of £282 and almost double the London average of £562. But the price is all about the view, as the pint-sized property overlooks the iconic harbor and dramatic cliffs behind.

On the ground floor, there is an open-plan living/dining room, with a small open-plan kitchen. There is a small dining table for two and a two-seater sofa. and a sideboard where crockery and cutlery are stored because there is not enough space in the kitchen.



The cottage costs £1,053 per square foot, well above the national average cost of £282 and almost double the London average of £562.

The open-plan kitchen has a small two-burner hob, under-counter fridge and the microwave has been wall-mounted to maximize the limited worktop space. Upstairs there is a double bedroom and a small shower room.

At its narrowest, the chalet is only 10 feet 11 inches wide. Homestead is a Grade II listed fisherman’s cottage believed to date from the mid 1800s and is in the heart of the village, a few minutes walk from the harbour.

It does not have a parking space but it is possible to rent a parking space at the nearby Quarry Car Park. The chalet is currently being used as a successful vacation rental in the hugely popular tourist location.

Port Isaac is a historic fishing village known for its narrow, winding streets and traditional Cornish cottages. The Fisherman’s Friends still perform regularly in the harbor and celebrity chef Nathan Outlaw has a two Michelin star restaurant in the village.

Port Isaac has been used as a setting for various films and TV series, including ITV’s Doc Martin, starring Martin Clunes as the curmudgeonly doctor.

James Heywood of John Bray Estates, who is selling the property, said: “Homestead is comfortable, perfectly formed and thoughtfully laid out to maximize space.

“A quintessential Port Isaac fisherman’s cottage, this is a great place to stay with harbor views and a rented parking space to boot and all for £295,000.”
