Port Isaac, Cornwall
In the heart of the historic fishing village, overlooking Port Isaac harbour stands The Slipway. In its current form, it is operating as a Café and a Bed & Breakfast with seven en-suite double bedrooms.
Dating back to 1527, The Slipway has been a smugglers hideaway and a ship's chandlery. Shortly after World War II the building was converted into a seaside guesthouse, and hotel. In 1969, due to its architectural and historic importance, the building was Grade II listed by the National Trust. The current owners purchased The Slipway in the summer of 2016 and they are planning to return this historic building to its former glory, keeping the cottage character and quirkiness.
The village of Port Isaac, where The Slipway is located, became a popular filming location, and since the 80’s has served as a backdrop to various film and television productions. It is also home to the group Fisherman’s Friends, a group of local fishermen who are a world famous sea-shanty group.
With years of history, exposed beams and stonework, the 7 modern rooms are fitted with en-suite showers, central heating, and HD screen TVs. Each room has beverage making facilities, and some contain a mini fridge to keep drinks and snacks cold.
