Any “Doc Martin” fans out there?
On the show, Martin Clunes plays Dr. Martin Ellingham, a socially challenged doctor who moves from London to the picturesque village of Port Wenn in Cornwall.
It’s filmed in Port Isaac, and I looked up the stone cottage that served as Doc Martin’s Surgery (doctor’s office) on the show.
It’s called Fern Cottage, and in real life it’s a two-bedroom “self-catering holiday cottage” that you can rent for your next vacation.
The rooms were “beautifully refurbished by Julie Kent Interiors.”
The listing says:
This stunning cottage is the surgery in the famous Doc Martin TV series with breathtaking views over the historic harbour of Port Isaac .
Ground Floor: entrance hall, cloakroom /wc, sitting room with stone fireplace , beamed ceiling and slate flagged floor, separate dining room with log burner , and a modern fitted galley kitchen.
First floor: attractive landing with wonderful harbour and sea views, two spacious double bedrooms – each with fabulous harbour and sea views and fitted wardrobes, large modern bathroom.
Outside: car parking, slate sun terrace and raised lawned garden on two levels to the rear of the property, with magnificent sea views.
Wouldn’t it be fun to spend the night at Doc Martin’s place?
