Geldenhuis Holiday Cottages in Cornwall
More about Geldenhuis (the location)Location
The fishing village of Port Isaac nestles in a valley, bordered on one side by the sea, where crab and lobster is caught daily by the local fishermen and sold in the fish cellars on the beach. There is a partly rocky beach where children search for baby crabs. The village is located very near Rock with its sailing facilities and St. Enedoc Golf Course. Padstow, with Rick Stein’s popular seafood restaurant, is a ferry ride across the bay.
Geldenhuis takes its name from the South African Goldmine that a local carpenter, Thomas Remick, travelled to with his brother at the turn of the century. His wife purchased the cottage with the money sent back from South Africa.
Geldenhuis is a traditional fisherman's cottage located in the centre of the village of Port Isaac. A minutes walk through the narrow lanes leads to the harbour protected by the original breakwaters which also has a fresh fish market run by local fishermen.
The cottages oldest parts date back to the 17th century when it was originally two cottages. Over the last four hundred years it has evolved and is now a fully equipped traditional cottage retaining the natural character with the addition of a conservatory.
