Port Isaac is one of the most attractive little fishing villages on the Cornwall coast. In a small cove with boats round the harbour, tiny houses creep up the cliffs. The town has several restaurants and little shops.
Parking in Port Isaac is impossible and it is wonderful therefore that Mill Barn has its own private parking and is an eight minute walk down a green track from the centre of the village, which cannot be seen from the house. Also, your arrival here can be memorable, with an outlook over unspoilt country, good views along the coast and of Port Isaac itself. Indeed this may be the most impressive and dramatic arrival of any Forgotten House.
Mill Barn was built in the late 18th C with thick walls of the local stone, to provide storage for the older mill building. The conversion was made with the aim of keeping as many features as possible, but remain comfortable and practical. Around the top of the walls are eleven pigeon holes for breeding “squabs” or young pigeons for the table.
The fields immediately round the house are kept as green pasture. The owners, up the hill, keep chickens which can be seen scratching round the lower yard. The old mill, in which much of the original machinery has - unusually - remained, retains much interest for the historian.
