Port Isaac, Cornwall

Port Isaac is a small and picturesque fishing village on the Atlantic Coast of North Cornwall, United Kingdom. The nearest towns are Wadebridge and Camelford, both ten miles away in opposite directions. Port Gaverne, commonly mistaken to be part of Port Isaac, is a hamlet that has its own individual history. Since the 1980s the village has served as backdrop to various TV productions, and most recently the ITV series Doc Martin. The meaning of the name Porth Izzick (modified in English spelling) is the "corn port," indicating a trade in wheat from the arable inland district.
