Leat House is spectacularly placed in the centre of the hamlet of Port Gaverne in North Cornwall, giving uninterrupted views of the beach, bay, sea and rugged cliffs. Port Gaverne offers its visitors rock pools and caves, cliff walks and magnificent views, and a gently sloping small sandy beach at low tide that becomes an excellent diving beach at high tide. The picturesque village of Port Isaac (known as Port Wenn in the TV series Doc Martin) is just a quarter of a mile away.
The pretty coastal hamlet of Port Gaverne is spectacularly sited on the rugged stretch of North Cornwall coastline that runs between the Camel Estuary at Rock right the way up to the Devon/Cornwall border at Bude. At low tide there is a small, sheltered, sandy beach with an abundance of rock pools.
The cove has two vibrant eateries; the recently opened Pilchards cafe which is in a prime spot overlooking Port Gaverne Bay, seconds from the sea, and the AA 5 star, 2 Rosette rated Port Gaverne restaurant and hotel.
Port Gaverne is a five minutes’ walk from Port Isaac and is within easy driving distance of Padstow, Rock, Polzeath, Trebarwith sands and Tintagel.
