Port Gaverne is a hamlet on the north coast of Cornwall adjoining Port Isaac.  Founded on its fishing in past centuries, and once used for shipping slate from the Delabole quarries. Carn-Awn and Pops Place stand on there  own overlooking the harbour and straight out over the sea as far as the horizon. In the old Cornish language "Carn" is a pile of rocks and "Awn" is a haven, the name "Gaverne" is a corruption of this. It is indeed a haven in the rocks, and at low tide the beach is sandy, with fascinating rock pools full of tiny fish, and you can fish from the rocks, or hire a boat for sea fishing. The beach is as safe for swimming as anywhere in Cornwall, but please be careful, especially at low water, and if you are in doubt, take local advice. The coastline is magnificent and you can walk for miles along the coastal paths or drive to many other beaches within easy reach. Port Gaverne and Port Isaac are separated by a hill, five minutes' walk from Carn-Awn and Pops Place. Port Isaac is a small unspoilt fishing village with  several fishing boats going out from the harbour every day to catch lobster and crab. It has a number of different shops entwined in the narrow  streets, fish shops, bakery, post office, fudge, pottery, crafts, restaurants, garage. In recent years it has become synonymous with Doc Martin, the fictional Doctor of Port Wenn.
