Port Isaac   has been an attractive fishing village since the early fourteenth century. Its narrow, winding streets are lined with old white-washed cottages and traditional granite, slate-fronted Cornish houses, many of which are listed as of architectural or historic importance
Over recent years Port Isaac has become a popular location for both films and television series. The village is possibly best known as the fictional Portwenn from the ITV television series Doc Martin starring Martin Clunes

Fowey is a bustling small port which still has a busy commercial life in addition to providing attractive mooring for leisure boats. On Fore Street is the Old House of Foye, a medieval house built in 1430. It is one of the oldest buildings in Fowey and is now a shop.

St Mawes  The pretty village of St.Mawes looks out over the River Fal towards Falmouth. The old fishing port boasts steep and narrow streets rising from the harbour. In recent years, St Mawes has become a popular tourist destination with good restaurants, attractive shops and a number of galleries. St Mawes Castle overlooks the coast on the opposite side of the river to Falmouth. It is in an impressive position and was built in the 16th century as part of the coastal defences. The Castle belongs to English Heritage and is open all year round. The building, with its three huge circular bastions and gun ports, is a fine example of Tudor military architecture..
