Today I was intrigued by a listing for “a picturesque stone cottage with uninterrupted views of the beach.” It’s located in the pretty coastal hamlet of Port Gaverne along the North Cornwall coastline. It’s near Port Isaac, an area you may recognize from watching the British TV series “Doc Martin” (love that show). Take a look!
According to the listing, “The cottage has a wealth of period features including impressive slate flagged floors, cream louvered shutters to all windows, some exposed stone walls and two large and attractive working fireplaces.”
There were originally two stone cottages sitting next to each other, but they were connected to make a single larger one. For more photos and information, check the listing. (Thanks to Laura of A Place for Tea for finding this one!)
But that’s not all, folks! You know me–once I was thinking about it, I couldn’t resist looking up the stone cottage that served as Doc Martin’s Surgery (doctor’s office) on the show. Turns out it’s called Fern Cottage. Love the name. Here’s a photo of star Martin Clunes in front of it:
Wouldn’t it be fun to spend the night at Doc Martin’s (former) house? For more photos and information about Fern Cottage, visit their website.
I’m such a sucker for a stone cottage–but I think I’m always hoping it’ll look like the one from The Holiday (which wasn’t even real, sadly). If you’re the same way, you can see the other cottages I’ve featured here.
