Port Quin


Port Quin

Port Quinn gbmapping|SW971805 is a small cove and hamlet between Port Isaac and Polzeath on the Atlantic coast in North Cornwall, England, UK.

The hamlet and the coastline is mainly owned by the National Trust; the Trust rents out several of the stone cottages as self-catering holiday accommodation.

The hamlet itself is situated at the end of a narrow rocky inlet in Port Quin Bay which extends from Kellan Head on the north-east side of the inlet to The Rumps.

The South West Coast Path closely follows the coastline of the inlet. Port Quinn is popular with walkers and there is a small car park on the lane which leads from Port Quinn to the village of Trelights.

On the south-west side of the inlet is Doyden Point, on which is situated Doyden Castle, a castellated Folley built in 1830 by Samuel Symonscite web | last = | first = | authorlink = | coauthors = | title = National Trust Cottages (Doyden Castle) | work = | publisher = | date = | url = http://www.nationaltrustcottages.co.uk/nt.asp?p=63&c=13 | format = | doi = | accessdate = 12/05/2008.
