Port Isaac - Cornwall - England - 4K Virtual Walk - July 2020

Join us for a full virtual tour of Port Isaac, Cornwall. Our walk starts on the South West Coast Path with glorious views of the picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac. Made famous by the British television series Doc Martin and the male singing group Fisherman's Friends. Our walk was filmed on a beautiful summers day in July 2020. From high up on the South West Coast Path we make our way down Roscarrock Hill. Here you will see Doc Martin's Surgery (Fern Cottage) a picturesque detached stone cottage with sensational views over Port Isaac harbour, the quaint village and the sea. The cottage is used as the surgery in the television series, Doc Martin starring Martin Clunes. Fern Cottage is available for rent as a 2 bedroom self catering holiday cottage. We wander down to the harbour and beach and explore the cute narrow streets with gorgeous cottages, many available to rent for holidays. Our walk finishes on the South West Coast Path on the opposite side to where we started.

Due to technical issues with the sound on the day we've had to unfortunately replace the audio. The audio used has been matched as best as we can so hopefully it won't affect your enjoyment.

**************************************************************

Port Isaac has been an attractive fishing village since the early fourteenth century. Its narrow, winding streets are lined with old white-washed cottages and traditional granite, slate-fronted Cornish houses, many of which are listed as of architectural or historic importance. From the Middle Ages until the middle of the 19th century, Port Isaac was a busy port handling various imports and exports, including coal, timber, pottery and Delabole slate. In fact the name Port Isaac is derived from the Cornish Porth Izzick meaning the 'corn port'. After the advent of the railways, it became principally a fishing port.

Doc Martin is a British television medical comedy drama series starring Martin Clunes in the title role. The programme is set in the fictional seaside village of Portwenn and filmed on location in the village of Port Isaac, Cornwall, United Kingdom. Nine series aired between 2004 and 2019, with a television film airing on Christmas Day in 2006. The ninth and most recent series aired on ITV from September 2019, and streamed in the United States and Canada on Acorn TV. In April 2020 the tenth series was confirmed by director Nigel Cole.

The Fisherman's Friends are a male singing group from Port Isaac, Cornwall, who sing sea shanties. They have been performing locally since 1995, and signed a record deal with Universal Music in March 2010. Whilst essentially an a cappella group, their studio recordings and live performances now often include traditional simple instrumentation. Their performances combine traditional songs of the sea with more contemporary folk music and a large dash of humour. In the original line-up, all of the members of the group grew up within half a mile of Port Isaac harbour except for John McDonnell who is a Yorkshireman. Three were fishermen, and the others are linked to the sea through service as coastguards or lifeboatmen.

In 2009 BBC Radio presenter Johnnie Walker was in Cornwall on holiday and happened to come across two of their home made CDs. Walker's manager, Ian Brown, then travelled to Port Isaac and was able to negotiate a recording contract worth £1 million for them with Universal Music Group who released their first commercial album the following year. Their first album with Universal, Port Isaac's Fisherman's Friends, was recorded in St Kew Parish Church, Cornwall, and released in April 2010.

They have performed at the 2010 Cornbury music festival in Oxfordshire, the Glastonbury Festival on several occasions, typically on the Acoustic Stage, but on one occasion performing on the Pyramid Stage and the Cambridge Folk Festival. The band have also appeared at Towersey Festival, Wickham Festival, Beautiful Days, Costa Del Folk, Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Tunes in the Dunes, Boardmasters and Celtic Connections. They also often perform in Port Isaac, regularly singing on the platt (beach) in the summer for charity.

The 'Fisherman's Friends' feature film was released in cinemas nationwide in the UK on 15 March 2019. All members of the band had cameos in the film. The singing is a blend of the voices of the group themselves and of the actors. In May 2019 a sequel titled Fisherman’s Friends 2: Bound For South Australia was announced which will take them from performing at Glastonbury to struggling to put their second album together.

Polperro - Cornwall - England - 4k Virtual Walk - July 2020

Walk with us around Polperro in July 2020. Following the recent lockdown, the shops, restaurants and pubs are starting to open and tourists are returning once again.

The walk starts at the top of the village near the Crumplehorn Inn. We make our way down through the narrow streets to the harbour and beach.

**************************************************************

Polperro lies just a few spectacular miles along the coast from Looe. Sheltered from the ravages of time and tide in its cliff ravine, it's an enchanting jumble of cottages, each one unmistakably the work of a Cornish fisherman.

Polperro has a small sandy beach located just outside the main breakwater. The beach is in front of Willy Wilcox cave, believed to have been used by smugglers.

One of the most popular places in Cornwall, the village of Polperro is undoubtedly one of the prettiest.

Packed tightly into a steep valley on either side of the River Pol, the quaint colour-washed cottages and twisting streets offer surprises at every turn: the Saxon and Roman bridges, the famous House on Props, the old Watch House, the fish quay, and the 16th century house where Dr. Jonathan Couch lived, naturalist and grandfather of the celebrated writer Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch.

With its protected inner harbour full of colourful boats. Polperro is still a working fishing village, although tourism provides the main source of income. Attractions include a Museum of Smuggling and a Model Village.

*************************************************************************************************
Padstow is a town, civil parish and fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. The town is situated on the west bank of the River Camel estuary approximately 5 miles northwest of Wadebridge, 10 miles northwest of Bodmin and 10 miles northeast of Newquay.

Traditionally a fishing port, Padstow is now a popular tourist destination. Although some of its former fishing fleet remains, it is mainly a yachting haven on a dramatic coastline with few easily navigable harbours. The influence of restaurateur Rick Stein can be seen in the port, and tourists travel from long distances to eat at his restaurant and cafés. This has led to the town being dubbed Padstein by food writers in the British media.

However, the boom in the popularity of the port has caused house price inflation both in the port and surrounding areas, as people buy homes to live in, or as second or holiday homes. This has meant significant numbers of locals cannot afford to buy property in the area, with prices often well over 10 times the average salary of around £15,000. This has led to a population decline.

The approach from the sea into the River Camel is partially blocked by the Doom Bar, a bank of sand extending across the estuary which is a significant hazard to shipping and the cause of many shipwrecks. For ships entering the estuary, the immediate loss of wind due to the cliffs was a particular hazard, often resulting in ships being swept onto the Doom Bar.

The Black Tor ferry provides a scenic ride across the the River Camel between Padstow and Rock. The pedestrian ferry runs every 20 minutes taking around 5-10 minutes as opposed to a 30 minute car journey. The ferry operates throughout the year although there are no Sunday crossings between mid-November and mid-February.

Padstow's old railway line is now the Camel Trail, a footpath and cycle path which is popular owing to its picturesque route beside the River Camel. One of the railway mileposts is now embedded outside the Shipwright's Arms public house on the Harbour Front.

The South West Coast Path runs on both sides of the River Camel estuary and crosses from Padstow to Rock via the Black Tor ferry. The path gives walking access to the coast with Stepper Point and Trevose Head within an easy day's walk of Padstow.

The Saints' Way long-distance footpath runs from Padstow to Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall.

The Camel Trail cycleway follows the course of the former railway from Padstow. It is open to walkers, cyclists and horse riders and suitable for disabled access. The 17.3-mile long route leads to Wadebridge and on to Wenford Bridge and Bodmin, and is used by an estimated 400,000 users each year generating an income of approximately £3 million a year.

Padstow is best known for its 'Obby 'Oss' festival, taking place on May Day every year. A procession of the Red Obby Oss and the Blue Obby Oss dance around and through the streets of Padstow for twelve hours, a custom that has been held for centuries, thousands of people gather in Padstow's narrow streets to catch a glimpse of the famous Obby Oss.

Port Isaac - come for a wander! Virtual, step-by-step Walk around Port Isaac Cornwall or 'Port Wenn'

We were lucky enough to take a trip to Port Isaac when lockdown 'travel for exercise' restrictions were easing but before holiday accommodation had opened. Being in Port Isaac felt a bit different. Usually it is a busy bustling place with people crowding the streets and shops, eager to spot the cottages and places used in Doc Martin. Chatter, laughter and childish squeals usually fill the air.

On the day we visited, it was so quiet. The stage was still being set, painters with the finishing touches, housekeepers cleaning windows and the few locals that continue to live in the village enjoying a quiet drink on the Platt, with children paddling in the water.

Beginning on the South West Coast Path (SWCP), just west of Port Isaac, we walk to the village to explore the quiet streets, quaint lanes and cute cottages, tucked cheek by jowl in the heart of the village. After winding through the cottages, we walk up Fore Street, passing the Old School House and pick up the SWCP once again that leads to the St Endellion car park, before taking a little footpath, Doctor's Meadow to finish back in the centre of the village with a most photographed view of the harbour.

A challenge for the Doc Martin fans - see how many filming locations you can spot!! Here are four obvious ones: Doc Martin's surgery at 7:41, Aunt Ruth's house at 15:33, Crab and Lobster at 21:28 and Louisa's school at 32:14. We spotted plenty!!


The standard description bit…
We are Sarah and Andrew and we film our walks around Cornwall and publish on YouTube, usually weekly. Sometimes we stay in accommodation in Cornwall and upload our vlog. Sarah is fascinated by sea glass and likes to collect it so there may be the occasional sea glass video too. The channel is a hobby and we both have normal day jobs!

Frequently asked questions:
What camera do we use?
Since December 2018 we have used: Canon Powershot G7x MkII

How do I find the books you use?
Most are still in print although some we pick up in charity shops and may be available on Amazon secondhand. Please refer to the video for the book titles. Every video shows the book three times. Sorry but we can’t put a link in every description.

Best time of year to visit Cornwall?
We love May, June for flora and fauna, July and September for spectacular scenery.

What is your dog’s name?
Sorry but we do not release the name of our dog, perhaps you can make up your own name for him.

***************************************************************************************************
St Ives is a seaside town, civil parish and port in Cornwall, England. The town lies north of Penzance and west of Camborne on the coast of the Celtic Sea. In former times it was commercially dependent on fishing. The decline in fishing, however, caused a shift in commercial emphasis, and the town is now primarily a popular seaside resort, notably achieving the title of Best UK Seaside Town from the British Travel Awards in both 2010 and 2011. St Ives was incorporated by Royal Charter in 1639. St Ives has become renowned for its number of artists. It was named best seaside town of 2007 by The Guardian newspaper.

St Ives is on the western shore of St Ives Bay, its harbour sheltered by St Ives Island (a headland) and Smeaton's pier. Close to the harbour, in the old part of the town, the streets are narrow and uneven while its wider streets are in the newer parts of the town on rising ground. The town has four beaches: Porthmeor a surfing beach, Porthgwidden a small sandy cove, Harbour by the working port and Porthminster which has almost half a mile of sand. St Ives has an oceanic climate and has some of the mildest winters and warmest summers in Britain and Northern Europe. It is therefore a popular tourist resort in the summer, and also benefits from an amount of sunshine per year that is above the national average. The South West Coast Path passes through the town.

The Sloop Inn is an inn in St Ives, Cornwall, England, located on the wharf. It is one of the oldest inns in Cornwall, the public house is dated to circa 1312 although the present building was built in the 17th or 18th century. The Sloop Inn was popular with artists during the Victorian era.

PORT ISAAC | A sunny walk exploring the beautiful village of Port Isaac, Cornwall, England in 4K

PORT ISAAC | A happy sunny walking tour exploring the beautiful village of Port Isaac Cornwall, England, the filming location for the Doc Martin TV show and the Fisherman's Friends movie.

Port Isaac is a stunning little fishing village close to Port Gaverne and Tintagel on the West coast of Cornwall UK. It's a working fishing village but also a huge travel and tourist destination with many tourists heading there for a Cornwall holiday or short break.

The location of Port Isaac is fantastic with it being such a short drive from other Cornwall towns and villages such as Padstow, Polzeath and Boscastle. But visitors to Port Isaac will tell you that this beautiful place is enough in it's own right to warrant being visited and loved as a fantastic and stunning looking Cornwall holiday destination.

Port Isaac is also famous for being the Doc Martin Filming Location and the Doc Martin show is filmed in and around the village, and you can spot the famous filming locations around the place and see where Martin Clunes and the cast of Doc Martin film their scenes including Doc Martins house and the Pharmacy that you see in the TV Show.

And Port Isaac is also the Fisherman's Friends Filming Location with the movie not just being filmed in the village but also the story being one of the Fishermans Friends sea shanty group that started and is still based in Port Isaac. If you are an avid Fisherman's Friends fan or you are just someone who enjoys visiting Filming Locations then Port Isaac is most definitely for you.

We take a look at Fore Street and The Platt (Where you will find and see Fisherman's Friends singing in the summer) as well as Roscarrock Hill (Where you will find Fern Cottage the filming location of Doc Martin's House). This isn't a Port Isaac filming locations tour but I thought I'd include a few for you.

MEVAGISSEY Cornwall July 2021 - 4K Virtual Walk

Join us for a walk around Mevagissey, Cornwall, England. We explore the quaint narrow streets of this picturesque Cornish fishing village and take a walk around Mevagissey harbour. Mevagissey has an inner and outer harbour and we explore both in this walk. It's easy to see why this historic fishing port is such a popular Cornish fishing village for tourists to visit, and whilst it's main income is probably now from tourism, it still remains a working fishing village. Walking past Mevagissey aquarium, housed in the old R.N.L.I. lifeboat house, we walk out onto Victoria Pier and finish our walk by Victoria Pier Head Lighthouse.

Mevagissey is an attractive fishing village which was once the centre of Cornwall’s pilchard fishery and which still boasts a working harbour, with a few dozen small fishing boats. It has a tradition of boat building dating back to 1745. Many of the old buildings, constructed of cob and slate, bear testimony to a time when the large shoals of pilchards were the livelihood of the whole village. Fishing trips can be taken from the harbour and there is a ferry to the nearby port of Fowey. There is a car park on the quay but the narrow streets can be difficult to negotiate and are often full of pedestrians.

The village nestles in a small valley and faces east to Mevagissey Bay. The inner and outer harbours are busy with a mixture of pleasure vessels and working fishing boats. It has a thriving fishing industry and is the second biggest fishing port in Cornwall. Mevagissey lighthouse was built in 1896 to mark the south breakwater that protects the small harbour.

Mevagissey village centre consists of narrow streets with many places to eat and shops aimed at the tourist trade. The outer areas are built on the steep slopes of the surrounding hillsides and are mostly residential.

Mevagissey's narrow streets are full of gift shops, craft workshops, galleries, cafés and pubs. There are several hotels and many fish restaurants in Mevagissey and, of course, plenty of fish and chip shops! The World of Model Railways Exhibition is an impressive collection. There is an excellent Folk Museum, and an aquarium, in the old lifeboat house, displaying locally caught fish.

At the end of June each year, Mevagissey celebrates Feast Week with local entertainment, a week of family fun, music and dancing in the streets. At the end of the week there is a carnival and a fireworks display. In addition, the town has a wonderful display of Christmas lights. New Year is celebrated by almost everybody wearing fancy dress, as is the tradition in many Cornish towns.

Thanks for watching, we hope you enjoy!

This video was filmed on 21st June 2020, just as the UK is beginning to emerge from lockdown. The main street was closed to allow pedestrians to social distance . The quiet streets reflect peoples continued reluctance to leave their homes and the lack of tourists at what would normally be a busy holiday season.

This is a step-by-step walk starting at the Greenbank in Falmouth, walking through the main street to Pendennis headland, finishing at Gyllyngvase Beach.

Falmouth is a town, civil parish and port on the River Fal on the south coast of Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. At the 2011 census it had a total resident population of 21,797.

While Falmouth's maritime activity has much declined from its heyday, the docks are still a major contributor to the town's economy. It is the largest port in Cornwall. Falmouth remains a cargo port and the bunkering of vessels and the transfer of cargoes also keep the port's facilities busy. The port is popular with cruise ship operators.

Falmouth is a popular holiday destination and it is now primarily a tourist resort. The five main beaches starting next to Pendennis Castle and moving along the coast towards the Helford river are Castle, Tunnel, Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth beaches. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall opened in February 2003.

Falmouth is famous for its harbour. Together with Carrick Roads, it forms the third deepest natural harbour in the world, and the deepest in Western Europe. It has been the start or finish point of various round-the-world record-breaking voyages, such as those of Robin Knox-Johnston and Dame Ellen MacArthur.

During World War II the United States Navy had a large base in Falmouth harbour as well as an army base in the town. Some of the U.S. D-day landings originated from Falmouth harbour and the surrounding rivers and creeks.

On Pendennis Point, Pendennis Castle is a well-preserved 16th-century fortress built by Henry VIII.

The St Mawes ferry runs between the beautiful Cornish fishing village of St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula with the bustling maritime port of Falmouth steeped in history and heritage.

*************************************************************************************************
Padstow is a town, civil parish and fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. The town is situated on the west bank of the River Camel estuary approximately 5 miles northwest of Wadebridge, 10 miles northwest of Bodmin and 10 miles northeast of Newquay.

Traditionally a fishing port, Padstow is now a popular tourist destination. Although some of its former fishing fleet remains, it is mainly a yachting haven on a dramatic coastline with few easily navigable harbours. The influence of restaurateur Rick Stein can be seen in the port, and tourists travel from long distances to eat at his restaurant and cafés. This has led to the town being dubbed Padstein by food writers in the British media.

However, the boom in the popularity of the port has caused house price inflation both in the port and surrounding areas, as people buy homes to live in, or as second or holiday homes. This has meant significant numbers of locals cannot afford to buy property in the area, with prices often well over 10 times the average salary of around £15,000. This has led to a population decline.

The approach from the sea into the River Camel is partially blocked by the Doom Bar, a bank of sand extending across the estuary which is a significant hazard to shipping and the cause of many shipwrecks. For ships entering the estuary, the immediate loss of wind due to the cliffs was a particular hazard, often resulting in ships being swept onto the Doom Bar.

The Black Tor ferry provides a scenic ride across the the River Camel between Padstow and Rock. The pedestrian ferry runs every 20 minutes taking around 5-10 minutes as opposed to a 30 minute car journey. The ferry operates throughout the year although there are no Sunday crossings between mid-November and mid-February.

Padstow's old railway line is now the Camel Trail, a footpath and cycle path which is popular owing to its picturesque route beside the River Camel. One of the railway mileposts is now embedded outside the Shipwright's Arms public house on the Harbour Front.

The South West Coast Path runs on both sides of the River Camel estuary and crosses from Padstow to Rock via the Black Tor ferry. The path gives walking access to the coast with Stepper Point and Trevose Head within an easy day's walk of Padstow.

The Saints' Way long-distance footpath runs from Padstow to Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall.

The Camel Trail cycleway follows the course of the former railway from Padstow. It is open to walkers, cyclists and horse riders and suitable for disabled access. The 17.3-mile long route leads to Wadebridge and on to Wenford Bridge and Bodmin, and is used by an estimated 400,000 users each year generating an income of approximately £3 million a year.

Padstow is best known for its 'Obby 'Oss' festival, taking place on May Day every year. The festival starts at midnight on May Eve when townspeople gather outside the Golden Lion Inn to sing the Night Song. By morning, the town has been dressed with greenery and flowers placed around the maypole. A procession of the Red Obby Oss and the Blue Obby Oss dance around and through the streets of Padstow for twelve hours, a custom that has been held for centuries, thousands of people gather in Padstow's narrow streets to catch a glimpse of the famous Obby Oss.
