About Port Isaac
Port Isaac is an ancient fishing village, and port on the North Coast of Cornwall, not far from Tintagel where King Arthur was supposed to have lived, if you accept the fact that in the UK, the legendary King Arthur seemed to have a greater property portfolio that Donald Trump.
Most of the centre of the village consists of 18th and 19th century buildings. These appear to have been built randomly across the landscape linked by a series of winding lanes and paths. As the village grew these dwellings slowly climbed the surrounding hills. It’s all rather beautiful. Today almost all the houses in this painting would be second homes or holiday rentals.
