Doyden House was built by Captain Herbert Latimer Conor, a former prison governor, at the beginning of the twentieth century. He chose the location for its panoramic ocean views across Lundy Bay towards The Rumps.

Nearby Port Isaac, Polzeath and Rock offer an array of shops, art galleries and restaurants, Doyden House enjoys a peaceful location away from the crowds. For uninterrupted views of the ocean and immediate access to the coast path, look no further…some say this is the most spectacular coastline in North Cornwall.

The South West Coast Path is on your doorstep.

Within the same building as Carnweather you’ll also find our other holiday cottages Conor, Rumps and Mouls, which are arranged over two floors and all with magnificent sea views. The lawn around the House is perfect for soaking up the sun and the views on summer days, but the real fire will add a warm and comforting touch on those days when the Atlantic storms lash the coast. Carnweather is on the ground floor with stunning, views towards Doyden Castle, Lundy Bay and the inlet of Port Quin Bay, a rockpooler’s paradise.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    Beautiful setting

    Sea views from every window - such a beautiful setting. Beautiful sunsets every evening. Peaceful and calm vibe of cottage. Away from it all. Open fire felt really luxurious.
