Our Inspector's view

The Port Gaverne is a traditional inn, set in a tiny cove on Cornwall's dramatic north coast, just five minutes' walk from Port Isaac. Pilchards is their café, slap-bang on the beach. It's relaxed and friendly, offering excellent snacky dishes as well as larger plates.

About the area

Discover Cornwall & Isles of Scilly

Cornwall has just about everything – wild moorland landscapes, glorious river valley scenery, picturesque villages and miles of breathtaking coastline. With more than 80 surfing spots, there are plenty of sporting enthusiasts who also make their way here to enjoy wave-surfing, kite surfing and blokarting.

In recent years, new or restored visitor attractions have attracted even more visitors to the region; the Eden Project is famous for its giant geodesic domes housing exotic plants from different parts of the globe, while nearby the Lost Gardens of Heligan has impressive kitchen gardens and a wildlife hide.
