About Port Gaverne

Portgaverne, is not far from Port Isaac and just a short distance from Tintagel, as such it is on a stretch of coast that is wild, windy and storm lashed. It is in a region that abounds with legends of King Arthur and his Knights.

The village itself was especially noted for Pilchards, a fact which caused many fishermen in the 19th-century to make this little place their home. Very often great shoals of the fish could be seen in the swollen seas and to this day, stone built cellars that housed nets and the catch, can still be seen. There is also a small, narrow inlet from which a century or so ago, slate was shipped.

From the headland above the tiny inlet there are fabulous views towards Tintagel Head in one direction and Rumps Point in the other. This is a suberb vantage point from which to enjoy breathtaking views over a rain lashed, turbulent ocean.

The village is best enjoyed by leaving your car in the small car park and taking a gentle stroll.
