Whitewashed fisherman’s cottage close to TV’s Doc Martin goes up for sale for £595,000 

An idyllic fisherman’s cottage with a bright modern interior close to TV’s Doc Martin’s house in Cornwall has gone on the market for £595,000.

Grey Roofs is settled by the coast in Port Isaac, which doubles as the fictitious Portwenn in the much-loved ITV drama starring Martin Clunes. 

The three-bedroom, one-bathroom home is a stone’s throw from Fern Cottage, a beautiful rental property overlooking the fishing village which acts as the medical surgery and home of Doc Martin.

Grey Roofs has views of the picturesque Port Isaac harbour, is only 100 yards from the beach, and is directly opposite the The Slipway restaurant.

It is also three doors down from Buttermilk Shop, which doubles as a pharmacy in the series.

It was also used as a filming location for much of the original Poldark TV series in the 1970s, and is the home of the sea-shanty singing group Fisherman’s Friends.

The picturesque village is also home to two seafood restaurants run by Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw.

Josephine Ashby, from estate agents John Bray, said: ‘Port Isaac is a wonderful combination of a timeless fishing village with the stunning harbour and beautifully preserved cottages, yet there’s a blend of glamour and excitement hidden behind many of the low and wonky doors.

‘There are Michelin star chefs in the village, film crews and A-listers spotted frequently and the real stars of the show, the Cornish fishermen who have been the pinnacle of this community for generations.

‘It’s easy to see why it’s so popular.

‘Grey Roofs is a fine example of one of the original cottages, unchanged from the outside but behind those doors it has the coolest, funkiest interiors around. The contrast is vibrant and exciting!’
