Doc Martin: Experience TV come to life in Cornwall’s stunning Port Isaac

Where is Doc Martin Filmed?

Doc Martin is filmed mostly in and around the town of Port Isaac, a small fishing village on the Atlantic coast of north Cornwall in the South West of England.

Thanks to its beautiful coastlines and lush countryside, the area has been used as filming location for a number of television shows, including Doc Martin, 2000 comedy Saving Grace,  television show The Shell Seekers and 2019 film Fisherman’s Friends.

The village centre, dotted in quaint, picturesque seaside buildings, is thought to date back to the 18th and 19th century when it made its name as a port and fishing hub.

Port Isaac was famous for its handling of shipments of coal, wood, stone, ores, limestone, salt, pottery and heavy goods.

The historic core of the village was designated a Conservation Area in 1971 and is home to approximately 80 Grade II listed buildings.

One very special building in the village is the quaint cottage which serves as a backdrop for much of the show.

Fern Cottage is the doctor’s home, and while visitors can’t go inside, you can snap a picture outside the iconic front door.
